GREAT TIPS FOR STAYING COOL
Here are some great tips for staying cool this summer.
USE ALOE VERA TO CHILL OUT – Studies show that smoothing on a lotion rich in this plant’s extract lowers skin temperature on contact. Even better, it penetrates skin cells 500% more effectively than water, so it actually feels five times more cooling than a cold shower.
SPRINKLE POWDER FOR SOUNDER SLEEP – Too hot to sleep? Sprinkle some baby powder on your sheets: One study found that scent makes you feel relaxed instantly since you instinctively associate it with feeling safe, happy and secure. But its powers don’t stop there: The powder also absorbs moisture, keeping you from overheating – that’s why it’s often recommended to combat hot flashes.
DRINK TEA TO SHIELD YOUR SKIN – Australian research finds the tannins and antioxidants in tea can help protect your skin against sun damage. It works by blocking inflammation and suppressing an enzyme responsible for the harmful effects of UV rays. In fact, drinking two cups of tea a day lowers your risk of skin cancer by 30%. And if you’re feeling overheated, drink it hot, not iced. To compensate for the hot temperature of the liquid, your body temperature cools down; that’s why they drink hot tea in warm climates like India and Southeast Asia.
EAT CANTALOUPE TO REVERSE HEAT FATIGUE – Eating one cup of the melon daily helps nearly 80% of women chase away heat-triggered fatigue. That’s because it’s mostly water, which hydrates cells, and is packed with enzymes that rapidly convert food to fuel for your body. Plus, melon cools you off: It contains natural silicon, which stimulates the pituitary gland, the body’s temperature control center. So your body reacts by making you feel cooler.
