Keeping Cool in Hot Weather
Friday, 26 July 2019 | Paul
It seems like we wait all year round for summer, then when the hot weather does finally arrive, we complain that it’s too hot! As heatwaves pass and the summer weather continues, how do we keep ourselves cool?
How Does Increased Temperature Affect the Body?
Summer weather and rising temperatures can affect our bodies in various ways, including:
Who is Most at Risk During Hot Weather?
We can all get hot and bothered during soaring temperatures and heatwaves, but some groups of people are more vulnerable, in particular, those aged over 75. This is because, as we get older, our body has more trouble maintaining its core temperature of 36°C to 37.5°C and we might not be aware that we’re overheating, so dehydration is more likely.
What Can I Do to Keep Myself Cool?
Is There Anything Else I Can Do?
Maybe you’re lying on your frozen duvet, surrounded by half empty glasses of water with the fan blasting, but still sweating buckets. So, what measures can you take next?
While the hot weather might make you feel like you’re on holiday, reality soon hits when your morning alarm sounds and you have to prepare to brave the heat to make the journey to work. The Physicool Cooling Mist offers instant and long-lasting cooling relief with its aloe vera formula.
