Sun’s up, umbrellas open! It’s so hard to #KeepACoolHead during hot summer days and humid days in general. We all know how the scorching heat of the sun continuously lingers in the Philippines even after beach season! So before heading to your next summer destination, here are a couple of reminders and a tip from well-known stars and social media influencers who are experts in keeping their cool:
1. Use an umbrella or wear a hat/cap
Aside from the extra protection that it gives to your head, umbrellas and caps can help complete your look for your summer OOTD. Wide-brimmed hats are also handy, especially when you’re at the beach.
2. Hydrate and get refreshing flavored drinks
You know the drill: Drink at least 8 glasses of water every single day. Cold lemonade, fruity and minty drinks are also some refreshments that you can consider. These drinks help fuel the body with vitamins that it loses every day!
3. Relax and unwind when you can
File that Vacation Leave from work that you’ve planned for! Take a quick break from time to time. Taking care of your mental well-being is an important factor in keeping your cool during hot days. Have you noticed how some people turn irate in a snap when it’s hot? Yup, we can avoid being like one.
4. Wear comfy clothes
Avoid wearing black if possible. Black clothing absorbs wavelengths of light and converts them into heat. We don’t need that extra warmth during summertime! Instead, go for light-colored clothes made from cotton fabric, which absorb sweat and helps the body to cool down.
5. Use cooling shampoos that are affordable but effective
Your Manila Millennial recently joined a summer party in Bonifacio Global City, where Nico Bolzico, An Estrada, Chie Filomeno, Janina Manipol, and Michelle Dy launched a special summer collection from their favorite shampoo brand – Head & Shoulders. The new limited edition summer collection comes in three variants – Apple Fresh for a refreshing scent, Lemon Fresh for a citrusy lemon blast, and Cool Menthol for a minty cooling sensation.
“I’m always on the go, whether it be for work or for leisure, and I always make it a point to bring my trusty travel essentials that keep me feeling cool and refreshed. When the sun’s high up, I keep the energy up too with a burst of freshness, thanks to Head & Shoulders Apple Fresh on some days, and Head & Shoulders Lemon Fresh on other days,” shared Chie.
Jeron Teng, Kianna Dy, Cha Ocampo, Haley Dasovich, and En Estrada also share the common secret to staying cool in this sizzling weather. Too bad we weren’t able to spot them during the party, though!
Why this brand? With Head & Shoulders, you can go ahead and enjoy the bright and fun days of summer without having to deal with the stress that goes along with the heat, swear, and grime. Each 170ml bottle costs P125 and they are now available in supermarkets, sari-sari stores, drugstores, and convenience stores nationwide. You can also order one via Lazada and get promos, bundles, and discounts from April 25-27, 2018!
