Feelin' Hot Hot Hot!

Cristina Soriano

Feelin' hot hot HOT from the mid-summer heat and humidity? Here are a few ways that help me beat the mid-summer weather.

FAN LIKE A FLAMENCO DANCER

Intricately carved and hand painted wooden fans will forever remind me of my mother. In her chick leather handbags (stuffed to the brim with necessities), she always carries a fan to beat the tropical Filipino heat. I’ve brought her modus operandi to the NY (scorching) streets and could not be any cooler! I feel so glamorous waving my fan, even as beads of sweat glimmer my face!

THE HAT TRICK

I’m speaking of the stylish straw hats with billowing rims, but of course, baseball caps will do as well. Protecting your face from the sun is imperative, and the umbra from the chapeau’s rim will undoubtedly give you some comfort.

LOCO for COCO

Enveloping hydration is key when you’re treading in a blanket of heat and humidity.  Trust me, from many experiences of sun fatigue or ‘sun stroke’ as we call it in the Philippines, drinking water (or coconut juice, Gatorade, vitamin water) will nourish your body and brain, preventing you from feeling drained, exhausted or irritable!

TAN YOUR TOOTSIES

The definition of my childhood!

Exposing your feet to the atmosphere (rather than letting them ferment in your already smelly pair of Supergas) allows the sweat to dry quickly and thus cooling the body. Tan those tootsies with your favorite pair of sandals!

COOL, COLORFUL AND CRISP

Eat fresh colorful produce. Get some inspiration from my tropical breakfast feast.

Eat lighter meals in the summer heat to maintain a comfortable body temperature. Nosh on light salads, room temperature food and cold soups (dream of gazpacho, chilled cucumber soup and vishyssoise). You wont get that overly stuffed-I-just-age-too-many-fried-chicken-wings feeling and your body will not be working over time (think: OVERHEATING) to digest.
