1. Soothe your skin with aloe vera

Aloe vera has incredible cooling abilities, which makes it a great house plant to keep. Even if you don’t own one, then don’t worry – you could just buy some aloe vera gel in your local pharmacy. To make it even more effective, we suggest freezing it before use. Just grab your ice cube tray, fill it with aloe vera gel, and pop it in the freezer. It’s great for sunburns or just to help your skin feel more relax and to cool it down.

2. Make some melt-proof popsicles

Who doesn’t love a cooling popsicle? Unfortunately, they often melt too fast, which results in sticky colourful liquid all over the place (no one likes that). In order to avoid the disappointment and enjoy this summery treat for longer, why not make it out of jelly! It’s perfect for friends and family to enjoy on a hot summer day.

3. Add frozen lemons to your water

This is definitely one of the best ways to feel invigorated and refreshed when it’s hot af outside. Just slice the lemons and pop them into the freezer. Once they’re frozen, add them to your water for that lovely fresh taste. The water itself won’t be ice cold but you’ll still be able to enjoy its cooling effect.

4. Use cotton bed sheets

Having to fall asleep in hot, humid weather has got to be one of the most torturous experiences ever! You’ll definitely end up loosing sleep and waking up exhausted. However, there’s a quick and easy way of fixing that. Simply get hold of some cotton bed sheets – they will keep your bed cool and fresh, as they promote airflow and ventilation. It’s even better if the sheets are of a lighter colour, as they won’t heat up as fast.

5. Cool off your feet

Our feet are extremely sensitive to temperature changes, which can impact how our entire body feels in extreme weather. When it’s really hot outside, it might be a good idea to simply bathe your feet in some cold water. This way you won’t have to suffer through an icy shower but you’ll still feel refreshed and will help your body to cool down. It’s great before bedtime as well because it will definitely help you sleep better.

6. Unplug all electronics

It may not seem like it but all electronic devices give off a sizeable amount of heat, even when they’re turned off. All of this adds up, which leads to stuffy hot rooms that really don’t help with the summer heat. Be sure to unplug all electronics that you’re not using – this will quickly cool off your house, making it a safe refuge from the scorching sun.

7. Avoid meals rich in protein

Large meals with lots of protein will inevitably increase your body’s metabolic heat and make you feel very hot. In order to avoid that, it’s best to eat lighter dishes that have hydrating ingredients, such as salads. This shouldn’t be too difficult because quite often we’re not as hungry in the heat. Don’t forget to drink water on top of that as well – if you have it before a meal, you’ll be less likely to eat a lot of food.

8. Shut the curtains during the warmest hours

Sunlight is great and all but it really does heat up your house! By allowing it to enter your rooms, you’re putting an unnecessary pressure on your air conditioner (that is, if you even have one). One of the best ways to avoid it is to simply shut the curtains between 11am and 3pm, when sunlight is typically strongest. As a result, your house will be cooler throughout the day, which will help you survive the summer heat.
