With each passing year, summers seem to be getting hotter and hotter. Sometimes the unbearably high temperature can make us feel and look less than perfect. The increased body heat results in sweat and can be the cause of dehydration. Instantly clammy skin doesn’t exactly invite us to play outside but a lot of people feel it would be a shame to let the summer go by without getting the most out of it. So what can we do to be more comfortable when outside in hot weather?
Take necessary precautions
Firstly, do what you can to prepare yourself before going outside. Use sunscreen on each body part that is going to be exposed to the sun. Don’t forget about your face because it is more prone to sun damage than the rest of your body due to how thin the skin in that area is. Nowadays there are many spray sunscreens available that can be applied even over makeup. Many BB creams, especially the original ones from Asia, come with SPF protection included. Getting sunburnt can effectively ruin your enjoyment of summer weather. Wearing a hat and a long-sleeved shirt made from thin material is also a good idea to even increase your sun protection.
Drink water to stay hydrated. Never go out without a drink bottle with you. Dehydration is very dangerous and can have many negative effects on the body, from headaches to loss of consciousness. Passing out in the heat is dangerous and can even be fatal if not treated immediately so never forget about drinking liquids even if you have to force yourself. This should be remembered by everyone but even more so by children and the elderly because heat strokes are very serious conditions.
Lastly, don’t risk it if you don’t have to. If the weather forecast says that today’s temperatures are record high maybe don’t leave the house if there is no such necessity. No fun activity is worth risking your health.
Use body sprays
Body sprays and body mists are a great product to help you feel and look refreshed when outside during a hot summer. These items are fragrance perfume-like products but much more lightweight. They are kind of similar to aerosol deodorants but are intended for use over the whole body. You can keep one with you at all times and spray it whenever you start to feel clammy. They won’t keep you from sweating but will stop any bad smells.
Many brands offer body spray products and their sales usually surge in the summer. One such brand is Dove, a maker known for its quality skincare products. They have two kinds of what they call Body Lotion Sprays from the line Nourishing Secrets, Coconut and Avocado Oil. Both can be used by all skin types and promise a long-lasting feeling of freshness. The Dove Body Spray uses a fast-absorbing formula that also has moisturizing abilities. It can be sprayed on at any time and then you just pat it into your skin with your fingers. Choose the Dove Body Spray for not only the refreshment but also for more supple skin.
