COOL SUMMER

SUPER COOL SUMMER
  • In the Summer season, though how careful we are,take extra care not to get dehydration,sun-tan,excessive perspiration,body odour,and dry skin in rocky places which cause tiny summer wrinkles to appear,etc skin ailments.
  • Every body sweats and loses lots of water.
  • Do take lots of water,coconut water,buttermilk with Salt,and lime water,healthy drinks made with powdered millets,what we call ragi java etc.
  • And also soups to be included in the menu.
  • Foods to be included are cabbage,tomatoes,daals and beans,bananas and sprouts,raisins and leafy vegetables especially palak.
  • Regarding sunscreen -foods that are red,orange,yellow and green in colour,such as kheera,tomato,carrot,capsicum,acts as sunscreen protective layer in the body,resulting the reflection of ultra violet rays.
  • Fruits control the body heat, so water melon is a good option.
  • Pine apple ,banana,grapes and cherries also play an important role.
  • For those who cant take fruits can prepare fruit salaads,and milk shakes with fat less Milk.
  • To maintain oral health curds,butter milk,milk are to be drunk.
  • Foods which have antioxidants can be taken to prevent from summer.
  • Glucose water can be consumed in the afternoon.
  • Regarding skin,as the temperature rises in hot months,extra cleansing is necessary for oily skin people.
  • Another big problem is excessive perspiration and body odour.
  • Twice a day (atleast) take bathwith soap and plenty of water.
  • And certain areas where perspiration is excessive ,should be dusted liberally with talcum powder.
  • For infants,they should be bathed in afternoon in water to which a few drops of cologne have been added.
  • Dust their bodies liberally with talcum powder. 
  • For top to-toe freshness ,cleanse your hair at least weekly twice.

  • For tired eyes wrap crushed ice in a piece of cloth and apply it to closed eyelids.Relax for 15 minutes.

  • Ensure the feeling of freshness by keeping all your personal belongings clean.Cotton clothes are preferred,and all the saris,dresses,etc should be starched and well pressed for a neat appearance.
  • When ironing clothes,place a pad of cotton soaked in cologne or your favourite perfume by your side and run the pad on the clothes before ironing.Your pleasantly fragrant clothes will make u feel cool and fresh.

  • Do away all the nylons,shifons and georgets and silks,and bring out light cotton dresses,cool voils and crispy organdies in light shades.
  • Avoid too many accessories.
  • The makeup should be reduced to the minimum.
  • Foundation creams and lotions should be avoided.
  • Finish make up with a light puff of powder.
  • Be liberal with flowers.Use plenty of them in your hair.
Spray on your favourite perfume and when you go out you feel as pleasantly fresh and cool as though you are in a hill station.
