It’s that time of the year again! Now that we’re moving on from the cold, spring has sprung and as you may have noticed it’s gotten warmer than usual. Consider that during this season, the average temperature here in California is around 50-60 degrees. As of this week its at 70 degrees, giving us an early look at summer. For now, try to stay hydrated and cool with the following tips:

🌞 In some cases, those who don’t have ACs should try not to sleep in satin, silk, or polyester bed sheets, as they are more likely to contain sweaty and body fluids left from previous rest. After all no one likes tossing and turning in bed, now do they? Instead use not so heavy bed linens, more preferably made of cotton which can increase a steady breath and provides airflow within a room.

🌞Take a cold shower to loosen up from sweat and dryness. Plus a cold shower can increase alertness, speed up your metabolism, and tightens your skin from ashiness.

🌞Avoid getting your lips chapped, dry, or flaky by keeping them moisturized. Water is usually the main solution and source, but try adding honey with sugar and almond oil, and gently rub it on your lips to knock off dead skin. Or instead use the traditional chapstick.

🌞A personal favorite is drinking watermelon juice as a treat during the evening since it can keep you hydrated throughout the night, which can lower stress levels.
