beat the summer heat with 5 lifestyle changes

The fact that many of us feel dehydrated and lethargic is a sign that we have been severely affected by the summer's heat. In the heat, we must take careful care of our bodies. The majority of people would agree that heat waves may be very uncomfortable. Due to perspiration and the heat, women are more prone to dehydration, which makes them feel tired. During circumstances like perimenopause and menopause, women may experience hot flashes or night sweats, which can raise their body temperature.

Their use of specific medications is a major, albeit relatively uncommon, factor that could cause their body temperature to increase. Some medicines may make people's bodies produce too much heat, which raises body temperature. Women can fight off the negative impacts of summer by making healthy food choices and lifestyle changes.

Here are 5 things to beat the heat with lifestyle changes:


Stay Hydrated: Staying hydrated is the simple secret to surviving the hot heat. Your body's fluid equilibrium, which is easily lost through sweat, is maintained by water. In addition to water, women can also consume coconut water, buttermilk, sugarcane juice, yogurt, seasonal fresh fruits like watermelon, and water-rich vegetables like cucumbers.

Foods for Skin and Hair: Strawberries, bananas, zucchini, red peppers, tomatoes, gazpacho, lentils, flaxseeds, walnuts and hibiscus tea are some summer beauty foods that are great for skin and hair. These also include zinc, biotin, vitamins A and C, and biotin, which are all necessary for maintaining healthy skin and hair.

Eating Light Meals: Consuming excessive quantities or spicy foods can also cause inflammation and discomfort in women. After a hearty dinner, the body has to work harder to digest and metabolise food. The end effect is a slow increase in body temperature, which is followed by a sense of exhaustion and perspiration. Eat fresh, light meals during the summer. Limit the amount of prepared and salty items you eat.

Exercise smart: When the weather is brutal, one can opt to work out indoors. If you would rather exercise outdoors, go when it is cooler outside, such as early in the morning or late at night. After your workout, take a shower to help you relax and drink lots of water.

Care for Pregnant women: Pregnant women need to exercise particular caution. Fruits are abundant sources of vitamins, nutrients, healthy carbohydrates, fiber, and fibre. They offer you energy, keep you satisfied, and are great for your skin and hair. Along with preventing constipation, they also promote regular bowel movements and healthy digestion.

Apply sunscreen or sunblock frequently to prevent sunburn and skin damage. To maintain a healthy level of body temperature, avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. It is best to wear airy, light, and loose-fitting clothing.
