There is nothing worse than feeling hot and uncomfortable, especially during the summer. That’s why it’s important to know how to cool down if you always feel hot. It might not seem like a big deal, but if you get overheated often, it can have some serious effects on your body.
Luckily, there are many ways to cool down when it feels like the heat is too much to bear! From moisturizing your skin to taking a nice shower, here are 6 ways that will help you stay cool this summer.
Keep your skin moisturized.
You should always keep your skin moisturized.
It’s easy to know if you’re dry—if anything touches your skin, it’ll feel rough and uncomfortable (kinda like when you wear sandpaper in a pantyhose sock).
If you have dry skin, moisturize it every day with a lotion or cream that has at least 30% water in it. If not, the lotion won’t be able to soak into your pores and will just sit on top of them instead. This makes things worse because then your body won’t get any hydration from the cream! It’s like putting sunscreen on after eating greasy chicken wings: if there isn’t enough oil in those wings, they’ll stick onto everything else they come into contact with until they dry up again—like Vaseline does on glass windows at night time during wintertime in Canada when we don’t have heaters yet because we’re too lazy/cheap/poorly maintained by landlords who don’t care about us as people living here….
Eat spicy foods.
The next time you’re sweating buckets, try eating spicy foods. While they may not make you feel any cooler, they can help you cool down by raising your body temperature and causing you to sweat more.
Spicy food has also been shown to aid in digestion as well as losing weight. So if you’re looking for a way to cool off without trying too hard, adding some spice into your diet might be just what the doctor ordered!
Spray yourself with cold water.
One of the best ways to cool down is to spray yourself with cold water. You can use a spray bottle, or you can take a shower if you have access to one. Spray yourself in your face and neck, and then work your way down to your chest. If you are using a spray bottle, make sure that it is filled with tap water that has been refrigerated overnight (or better yet, use distilled water). The colder the water is when you start spraying yourself, the more effective it will be at cooling off! If this does not feel cool enough for some reason (or if it causes any irritation), try mixing 1 part vinegar in 9 parts cold water instead.
Wear dampened clothes.
- Soak dry clothes in a bucket of water. Then wear them. You can also put the damp clothes in the freezer and then remove them before you wear them, so they’re cool but not frozen.
- Put wet towels on your neck (or head). Put some ice cubes in cold water, add a few drops of essential oils like lavender or peppermint, swish it around and then soak a towel in it. Place this over your neck area as needed to cool down even more!
- Soak yourself with cold water if possible (if there’s no way to do this safely). If you have access to running water—in your shower or bathtub—dunk yourself under it until you feel slightly chilled from being wet all over. This will help regulate body temperature by cooling off some parts faster than others (like putting ice on an injury). You can also use an ice pack wrapped in cloth for similar results but less mess!
TAKE A COOL SHOWER.
If you find that you are always hot, one of the best ways to cool down is to take a cool shower. Taking a cold shower is also an excellent way to cool down. You should have your water as cold as possible while still being able to stand it.
If you find yourself sweating or overheating, try taking a cold shower. The cold water will shock your system and help bring your temperature back down quickly, so it’s perfect for when you’re feeling like things might get out of hand if you don’t do something about them right away!
Just think cool thoughts you will feel better
If you’re feeling hot, just think cool thoughts. You will feel more relaxed and in control of the situation. If you can think of cool things to do, that would be great!
- A cool thought is thinking about ice cubes or snowflakes falling from the sky.
- A cool way to spend some time is by going on a roller coaster ride at an amusement park.
- An easy way to stay cool during a hot day is by jumping into a swimming pool or playing with water guns in your backyard for hours on end without stopping for any reason whatsoever (especially not because it’s getting dark).
Some of these methods may not work for everyone, but most should work at least a little bit.
