Beat the Heat: It’s Getting Hotter, Folks! 🌞😓

Beat the Heat: It’s Getting Hotter, Folks! 🌞😓

Hey there! ☀️

It’s summer and the summer heat in the Philippines is no joke!  We’re beginning to feel that cloying, heavy feeling that summer brings and I’m not here for it. 😂 Oh Mr. Sun, sun please DON’T shine down on me. 😝

As the temperatures soar and the sun beats down relentlessly, it feels like I'm being slowly roasted in an invisible oven. But you know what's scarier than a sunburn? Heatstroke. 😵‍💫 Yep, that's right, it's the ultimate summer party pooper, and trust me, you don't want to be its next victim.

First things first, let's talk symptoms. If you ever feel like your body's turned into a sauna and you're sweating buckets 💦 despite the heat, watch out! Other warning signs include feeling lightheaded, having a pounding headache, and feeling nauseous. It's like your body's waving a red flag, shouting, "Danger, dude! Get cool!” 🚩🚩🚩

How to prevent it you ask? Stay hydrated, dear reader! I'm talking about guzzling down water like it's your main job. 💧 And hey, don't forget to dress the part too. Lightweight, light-colored clothing and a stylish wide-brimmed hat not only make a fashion statement but also shield you from the scorching sun. 👒🕶️ Don’t forget that SPF on the whole body! 50PA+++ at the minimum, please.

Just like all the infomercials used to say though---But wait, there's more! 🧀 Timing is everything when it comes to battling the heat. Avoid the blazing sun during its peak hours and opt for outdoor activities during the cooler parts of the day. Trust me, your skin will thank you later. After all, avoiding the direct sun during its hottest is the best prevention! 😉

If you're taking any medications, especially ones that mess with your body's ability to handle heat, be extra cautious. Consult your friendly neighborhood healthcare professional 👩‍⚕️ to make sure you're not unwittingly inviting heatstroke to crash your fun in the sun.

Pay more attention to the comfort of the elderly, babies and fur babies during this time too! 👴👵👶🐶😺 Kinder's favorite spot right now is a cooling mat and a fan blowing on a gigantic mound of ice, he’s double coated so he really needs it ❄️

Of course, when all else fails, seek refuge in air-conditioned havens, bonus points if you go somewhere you don’t have to pay the exorbitant electricity bill they charge us here. 😝 lol jk jk (but am I really? 🙃⚡) Cooling centers, shopping malls, or even your Tita's house with that gloriously chilly aircon—embrace them like the cool oasis they are. 😎

So there you have it, remember, stay cool, stay hydrated, and let's make this summer one to remember—for all the right reasons! Finally, for those aches and pains you feel, there’s always 🍃Oleia Peppermint Oil🍃 cooling, and will get rid of that heat induced headache you’re probably ignoring (like me 😝). Show me your bottle and I’ll show you mine? ‘Til next time! 😎
