Make An End Of Year Statement

It's almost that time of the year where everyone is thinking about New Year's resolutions. Unfortunately for most, the hot and humid weather makes them uncomfortable which leads to feeling lazy. And nobody wants to feel lazy and sluggish during this time of the year.

Keep your cool and try out these simple tricks to stay rejuvenated:

 

Stay Hydrated

When summer turns up the temperature way beyond comfort, the last thing you want to deal with is a headache. The key to preventing headaches is to drink water before you feel thirsty. By the time you feel the urge to drink water, your body's water reserves have already been depleted. Invest in a 2L water bottle you can carry around or keep close during your daily activities. Here's another simple trick: fill up your water bottle whenever it reaches the half-way mark so you can easily reach your recommended daily dose of water.

 

Dress For The Weather, Not Your Mood

As far as wardrobe choices go, you might want to consider breathable fabric. While you're at it, make sure your body moisturiser is cooling you down, too. Dawn Men Refresh Cooling Body Lotion is formulated with Menthol Extracts to refresh, revitalise and rejuvenate skin. Dawn has a collection of fast-absorbing, lightweight lotions and creams to suit your body's needs this summer.

 

Catch Some Sleep

The average adult requires 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. Sleep is important for mental function: memory, mood regulation, alertness, and overall physical health. Even just a few nights of tossing and turning can affect mood, concentration and metabolism.

Dim the lights, switch off all electronic devices or put them on sleep mode 45 minutes to an hour before bedtime for a good night's sleep. Also, opt for cotton pj's that draw sweat away from the body.

So why not shed the sluggish feeling this summer and make sure you are rejuvenated enough to take on the season. View our articles for more skincare tips and advice.
