No matter where you live, the summer is bound to be hot for you! There are many ways to keep cool from the heat, from what you where, the times you go out, and what you put on your body.

First of all make sure you are drinking lots of water to keep yourself hydrated, while avoiding soft drinks since they have a tendency to dehydrate you.

Depending on where you are, and if you have access to a pool or a beach, going swimming is one perfect way to cool yourself off, just make sure you wear sunblock because believe it or not, sun does way more damage to our skin than we think!

Another good idea is if you have a spray bottle, keep it full of water and then sit in front of a fan and spray yourself, and it will cool you down.

Also, you can sit in the shade and sip a cool drink like Iced Tea or Lemonade. You can also wait and go outside when the sun is down (the hottest parts of the day are between 10am and 3pm, when the sun is at the highest point in the sky) and avoid the hottest part of the day, and sit in front of your fan or in the air conditioning.

Wear thin clothes, not heavy clothes, like a thin cotton or linen. Avoid sneakers or any sort of shoe that would require you to wear socks, stick to open toe shoes, sandals, or Hawaiian flip flops.

Avoid layering clothes, if possible, and stick to fabric that will breathe, like cotton. Also, a hat with a wide brim, straw or any other light material that will keep the sun off of your face is a good idea.

If you keep your hair up, and maybe shorter, off of your neck, it will keep you cooler than keeping it down.
