5 Unexpected Ways to Keep Cool This Summer

1. Add Ice To A Regular Fan

Place a frozen cloth over the back of your fan, adhere a gel ice pack to the back of your fan with string or tape, or simply place a bowl of ice in front of your fan to cool down the air blowing your way. 


2. Put Your Ankles In Water

Studies have shown that submerging your feet in cold water up to your ankles can drastically cool you down, even in hot weather. Fill up your tub up or simply get a large mixing bowl with some cold water and possibly even ice cubes, and let your feet get a cool treat!


3. Keep Your Skin Products In The Fridge

Pop your products in the fridge for a few hours and they’ll be refreshingly cool when you’re ready to use them. This is a perfect option for facial mists if you want to spray on and cool down.


4. Eat Spicy Food

When you eat spicy food, your internal body temperature heats up, forcing you to sweat. Heat receptors in the skin are triggered by spiciness, leading to even more sweating. That double-whammy of sweat that occurs with spicy foods will cool off your body more efficiently than ice cream!

5. Pop clothes in the freezer.

Before bed, pop your pajamas in a plastic bag and stick them in the freezer for a few minutes. When you put your pajamas back on, you will be completely cooled off and ready for a peaceful night’s sleep. Cold pajamas are a great and easy trick to stay cool this summer.


None of these tips on how to keep yourself cool in hot weather will work if you’re dehydrated! Even if you do manage to cool down a bit, you’ll be parched and at a much higher risk of getting heat exhaustion. Whether you’re in the direct sun or not, remember to drink as much water as possible to keep yourself cool and hydrated.
