The scorching summer sun can cause you to sweat, get dehydrated and even break out into a heat rash. However, you can prevent some of these problems by dressing smart and wearing the right clothes to beat the heat.
Summer Fashion of cotton fabrics/dresses
Cotton absorbs the sweat from your body and allows it to evaporate into the air. It works like a towel, wicking the moisture away from your skin and discouraging the growth of bacteria and yeast. This makes it the perfect fabric for summer because it keeps you cool and prevents infections. You should avoid synthetic fabrics as much as possible because unlike cotton and other natural fabrics, most synthetic fabrics do not breathe. So when you sweat, the sweat doesn’t dry off like it should.
Lighter colours for summer
Colours like white, yellow, beige and other light shades keep you cool because they reflect most of the sun’s rays back into the atmosphere. Dark fabrics, on the other hand, tend to absorb these rays and trap their heat, making you feel even hotter.
Wear loose clothes
In summer, avoid wearing tight clothes that restrict your circulation. Your blood vessels tend to dilate in summer so that your body can cool itself by letting heat escape through your skin, so make it a point to wear loose and airy clothes to allow your blood to circulate freely.
Choose the right clothing styles
Summer is synonymous with shorts, dresses and sleeveless clothes, however, these are not exactly the ideal garments for this season. They expose your skin to the sun’s rays, inviting problems like UV damage and heat rashes. While we’re supposed to apply sunscreen before we go out, a lot of people don’t actually do so, leaving their skin vulnerable and exposed. The heat also dries out your skin, causing it to become stiff and more prone to ageing and wrinkles. If you think about it, the people who live in the deserts of the Middle East wear loose clothing that covers them from head to toe, primarily to protect them from the scorching heat. The ideal clothing choices for summer are loose pants or long skirts with tops. Loose salwar kameezes are also a good option.
With warm temps in full swing, we’re back with another round of seasonal essentials we can’t wait to wear! (If you missed our spring favorites, be sure to check them out here.) Now that it’s summer, you’ll find us living in these comfy staples for the rest of the season. Read on for our budget and splurge-worthy (yet still sensible) versions of each trend. Now, hand us some sangria because we’re ready for outdoor living!
Cool Summer Shirts
Keep things relaxed with oversized polos and textured fifties shirts exemplified by the runway collections of Raf Simons and Louis Vuitton. Balance out this trend with a tailored pant and accessorise with darker wayfarers for a true fifties vibe. This silhouette works perfectly in darker tones as well as powder hues, but contrast is key when combining colours, to sustain a more polished look.
Fashion for working women
A pleated version like this is definitely one of them! Tailored, classic, and definitely not too short, these shorts will keep you cool and are acceptable enough to wear just about anywhere.
Off the shoulder numbers have been cropping (ha!) up everywhere lately, and truly we can’t get enough. Feminine, flirty, and cool in the heat—what’s not to love? If you’re weary about the cropped length, pair it with high waist jeans, shorts, or a skirt to ensure you have enough coverage.
The blazer is at the top of the list when it comes to versatile wardrobe staples—but they can often get hot and stuffy. Opt for a linen version, which is a bit lighter and airier for summer. Same amount of polish but with a sophisticated, summer vibe.
Summer heat is arrived and we all are fighting it out to keep cool. This year mercury level has been pretty high especially in Asian countries like India, China, Japan and others. The outcome is excess heat, skin infections, dehydration, skin rashes, sunburns, acne, itching, sweat and thirst. There are some simple tips / precautions which if you follow regularly, can help to minimize the impact of heat. As and when the summer is advancing there is gradual increase in temperature. For summer care the most common advice is one can gets, is to stay indoors. Take shelter of your air conditioners, coolers and fan. we are looking out for skin care tips, good cosmetic products, moisturizer, skin lightening cream, beauty products etc.
All these modern resources can help you stay cool till we are indoors. But we have to go out of our house for office and other work. That is the real testing time. To minimize the effect of summer heat we have to keep cool from inside i.e. emotionally and mentally and take good care of our skin.
To keep ourselves cool, we reach out at our refrigerators for a chilled bottle of cold water, carbonated beverages or packaged juices. Occasionally, having it for a change is fine. But in long term it may take a toll on your body. It effects your digestion power, immune system and other effects. To protect ourselves from these side effects, have fresh fruit juices, water melon, lassi (a drink made from thickening of curd with sugar), water stored in clay pots at room temperature.
Daily hygiene is the basic thing we have learnt since our childhood. For summer, if we take some extra steps, it helps us a long way. Rose flower is available easily all over the world. But few people may be aware of its benefits in summer. It has an effective cooling power. Rose petals and rose essence oil has great cooling power. Soak rose petals overnight in water and in morning mix it with your bathing water. After taking bath with water along with rose petals softens your skin, makes it flexible and glowing in addition to guarding skin against sunburns.
Be watchful of what you put in your mouth. I assure you, half job is done. Diet plays a crucial role in our life. As per weather conditions, we have to make changes in our daily diet regime. Have lots of fresh fruits, they are full of life and energy. They rejuvenate our whole system. The other combination is fresh vegetables. They are full of all essential vitamins and minerals required by our body. With proper cooking methods (less oil usage), it aids in weight management. Thirdly, avoid spicy and sour diet. Make use of body cooling spices such as cardamom, mint, fennel etc in your diet.
Sunlight is proven therapy for our good health. Again we have to consider climatic conditions of our country or region. In early morning, when the sun is not at its peak, exposing our skin to direct sunlight is beneficial. During the mid-day time, when sun is at its peak, direct contact with sun rays may be harmful for our skin. It causes skin burns, irritation, itching etc. avoid going out in direct sunlight. Wear cotton garments, long sleeves and preferably carry an umbrella.
Daily Routine and Lifestyle
In today’s hectic life we tend to neglect our selves. We are more prone to stress and exertion. We daily face challenges both at our home and office, to strike a balance between them. Try to take out some time for yourself, go for a summer vacation, engage yourself in your favorite hobby, spend some good time with your family and friends. All these activities have a positive effect on your body and mind.
Exercise is a must in all seasons. For summer it helps to keep our mind and body cool. It aids in weight management. Take any activity of your choice, for example join a gym, yoga, swimming, cycling, jogging.
These were some easy tips to keep you refresh and cooling in the summer heat. I hope you like it. Please ensure to take some time for yourself. If you have any suggestions do share with us.
