There are many ways to keep yourself cool in the summer, but we’ve shortened the list down to our top 5 best tips.
1) Take a cold shower
This increases your circulation which is one of the top reasons experts recommend cold showers. As cold water hits your body and external limbs, it constricts circulation on the surface of your body. This causes blood in your deeper tissues to circulate at faster rates to maintain ideal body temperature which allows you to cool down.
2) Dress lightly
It’s not just the amount of clothes that matter, but the type as well. Lightweight, loose-fitting, absorbent materials like cotton work best. Keep it to one layer.
3) Freeze a (Hot) Water Bottle
Simply fill it with water and put it in the freezer. You may need to wrap it in a towel to protect your skin before you use it.
4) Choose the right bedding
Silk or linen is best to let enough air in, keep you cool, and wick away sweat. Have you seen our 100% Silk bedding set? Take a look here!

5) Reduce the intake of Caffeine
The morning cup of coffee that fires you up and gets you out the door. It’s pretty safe for most people, but it can raise your body temperature. That might not be good if you already feel hot. And it’s not just in coffee. It's also in chocolate, tea, sodas and sport drinks too!
We really hope these tips help you stay cool for the summer!
