These days, the temperature is shooting through the roof. But hey, there’s no need to panic. We’ve got you covered. Though we’ve all got the good old air conditioners around, Bahrain summers are pretty intense and so we’ve put together a list of basic practices to keep you beating the heat!
Hydrate as much as you can!
We’re all guilty of drinking less water than required for the human body – which is 3.7 liters for men and 2.7 liters for women. The easiest hack to getting those fluids in without buying a whole new water bottle is to infuse your regular water with lemons or cucumbers – making them fruity fresh, and loaded with added nutrition as well.
Use SPF – even at home
Sunscreen is the way to go – whether you’re indoors or outdoors. According to WeatherOnline’s UV Index, the sun’s ultraviolet rays will be at a strength of 12, which is the maximum end of the spectrum. So instead of risking severe sun damage to your skin, keep it chill with some SPF 30.
Stay minty fresh
Mint is one of the best ways to combat the icky sticky feeling of the Arabian summer – whether you chew it after meals, add it to your water, or use a minty air freshener.
Wear light, loose clothing
Light colors and fabrics like cotton are only going to help make the summer easier and the heat more bearable, and it’s the best way to organize your summer wardrobe too!
Opt for indoor activities
With the ongoing lockdown, it just makes the most sense to stay at home and out of the sun, and opting for fun indoor activities is the way to go!
