How to beat the heat!

For my fellow bloggers residing in the Philippines, I'm sure you all will agree with me that this year's heat has literally been unbearable. For readers not in Manila, let me give you an example on how hot it has been in Manila, we average on temperatures of 34c - 36c only 2 degrees celcius more and the heat we are experiencing is a full blown fever! It's that crazy.

So how do I beat this heat? If I had it my way, I would stay indoors inside my air-conditioned room but guess what MERALCO isn't cooperating too so here are a couple of tips to beat this summer heat.

1. Be Hydrated - Keep cool by drinking tons and tons of water all day, you need to keep cool inside. A good cup of cold water every now and then will help regulate your body's temperature. Tip: water with rock salt saturated to drink is a lot better according to my dad, the salt helps keep the water in your body for longer, plus it's filled with good minerals for your body! :) Oh occasional Juice is also good, my favorites are Grape Juice, Cranberry Juice and Orange, and sometimes, a cold Soda helps too! :)

2. Take at least 2-3 showers a day (2 If you're out most of the day) to feel fresh and was out the impurities of the heat stuck on your skin. And of course, who will disagree that a shower is always refreshing. :)

3. If you're a person who can't do without a lotion, I suggest using a lotion that is less thick or water based. The perfect lotion for me in this unbearable heat is Skin MD Natural lotion, I use it for my face, and my arms and there is no icky feeling at all! :)

4. Last, my handy best friend in this heat is Aromacology Sensi's Body Cool Mist! I swear, this cool mist really cools you. I used it for one of my outdoor shoots and it was my life saver. Plus the citrus smell is also pleasing and helps you smell fresh amidst the crazy sweat you get from the heat. It's the best I tell you, I spritz it after I take showers to smell fresh and anytime in the day I feel i need to cool from the heat. So handy I love it!!! :)

How about you guys, how do you beat this crazy summer heat? :)

Toodles! :)

  5. Are you carrying a risky credit record and some lenders have refused you a new loan? do not panic if you need the monetary help for urgency as you can rely on small loans without credit checks.
    loan no credit check
    loans with benefits
