Even a soda drinker will have to agree that water is still the best way to keep you hydrated. This is why you have to drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday. Best to bring your own bottled water to school or work so you can hydrate throughout the day.

Dress up in comfortable clothing like those made of chiffon and pure cotton that allow air to circulate and cool the body. Avoid tight fitting clothes including knits that hug the body, they can trap hot air and moisture adding to your discomfort.

What better way to beat the heat than to have all your paraphernalia with you like an umbrella and hand-held fan. You don't know when you'll need them so better make sure to have them in your bag all the time.

Freshen up your skin directly with a hydrating mist like the Avène Thermal Spring Water. I've tried a couple of other brands before but Avène really stands out. It feels so refreshing and it didn't break me out or cause any adverse skin reactions. I love that the spray is designed to deliver the product like a mist. This way you can use it on top of your makeup and anytime throughout the day without ruining your look.

Now this is a bit vague and quite general but it's really necessary to keep cool especially when things around you are scorched. As much as possible, don't let the heat get to your head. The humid air has a way of keeping you from thinking straight so make sure you do the necessary measures to prevent it from influencing your daily activities. Remember, most bad decisions are made when you don't blow off steam so keep cool and the rest will fall smoothly into place.
