Although summer is one of the most beautiful months of the year for many, the hot temperatures can often be a burden on the body and mind. We have compiled 5 simple tips to help you keep a cool head this summer!
Tip #1: Lukewarm Showers
Taking a cold shower during summer is actually counterproductive. Cold water shocks the circulation, increases blood pressure and causes the vessels to contract rapidly. The result: after the body has cooled down, it starts to sweat even more. Therefore, it is recommended to use lukewarm water when showering.
Our tip: The refreshing Aloe 92% Shower Gel by Holika Holika provides the skin with intensive moisture and counteracts skin irritations. Aloe vera, cucumber extract and centelle asiatica provide an added portion of freshness.
Tip #2: On-The-Go Freshness
Refreshing serum sprays are the ideal companion when on the road or travelling. The H2 Dermadeca Serum Sprayby NEOGEN provides the skin with moisture thanks to its delicate mist. It also revitalises the complexion. For in-between relaxation and freshness.
Tip #3: A Boost Of Freshness
The Cucumber Gel Mask by Peter Thomas Roth has an extra cooling effect when stored in the fridge. The refreshing mask is enriched with cucumber extract and aloe vera and provides the skin with optimum moisture - perfect for use after sunbathing.
Tip #4: Evening Foot Baths
Oftentimes the legs and feet feel heavy after a long, hot day. Our tip: a foot bath with peppermint or other bath additives and ice cubes. A relaxing foot mask rounds off the beauty routine perfectly. The Peppermint Relaxing Socks by Iroha relieve the feeling of heavy, tired legs whilst imparting silky softness.
Tip #5: Transforma A Hot Water Bottle To A Cool Water Bottle
It really works: simply fill the hot water bottle with cold water, put it in the fridge for about 2 hours and then enjoy the cooling effect.
