Here at WAH HQ we love a Handsome Project. Seeming as we are all about summer and for us Southern Hemisphere inhabitants, summer has just hit home *pause for cheer* we thought it was only fitting to bring to you all the We Are Handsome: Summer Series.
So if you are a traveller entering the harsh sun south of the equator, a person who has a natural affinity with winter, a person who is pasty white, a person who loves a tan, someone who adores summer like us or in fact, if you are any human (non humans also welcome) these posts are definitely for you. We want to spread the summer love to everyone.
So without a doubt we give to you the very first in this series;
7 WAYS TO SURVIVE A HOT SUMMER DAY:
1. DRESS SUITABLY
Many people believe that the more clothes you wear the cooler you will be. I am here to tell you that this is a complete fallacy! I have walked around India, Pakistan and various parts of Asia covered up and I can tell you it is not ideal. But in saying that, let’s not be hasty and start walking around the shops in a bikini or along the side of the road topless. Unless you are Ryan Gosling, then by all means walk around topless, go right ahead! Choose clothing that will allow you to breathe and move around without being uncomfortable or sweating up a storm. Choose summer inspired fabrics and light colours to avoid heat attraction. It truly is as simple as that. If you cannot find something appropriate obviously we will be more than happy to help you update your wardrobe with one of our Handsome cover ups.
Look we all know water is the best possible thing for you and you should drink plenty of it, but if a cocktail is on offer, you probably won’t say no. As a non alcoholic option you should jazz up some normal H20 with frozen berries or jump on the coconut water train. Coconut water is not only extremely delicious but it is full of potassium and good nutritious vitamins to keep you healthy and hydrated.
3. CRAFT A PAPER FAN
The menopausal women have the right idea. Make yourself a hand held fan that you can take everywhere with you. All you need is a popsicle stick and a paper plate. Simple.
4. BE SHADY
Yes we all know shade is important and avoiding excessive sun exposure is key….BUT you will most likely be out and about enjoying the sunshine. So if you happen to be on the beach, let’s not be one of those crazy people with the ugly and impossible beach tents. Invest in one of our Hideaway Beach Umbrellas. This will provide you will lots of shade and you will avoid those weird stares everyone gives you, when you are carrying a full size tent home because you couldn’t fold it back to its original form. Beach Umbrella for shade? Check!
5. DIVE INTO THE DEEP
It’s a no brainer kids. The ocean is cool, refreshing and healing.
6. RUN THROUGH A SPRINKLER
If you cannot reach the ocean or don’t have a pool to substitute, why not relive your childhood moments and run through a sprinkler.
7. Last but not least, SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE YOU LOVE because sharing the good vibes around is what summer is all about.
We reccommend you follow these 7 steps to ensure an amazing summer without heat stroke.
