Wear Loose Clothing

Wearing loose clothing that allows air to circulate is a great way to stay cool in the heat. Cotton is ideal for summer clothes as it is comfortable, absorbs sweat and dries quickly. If you work in offices that are cool, layer so that you can take something off when you have to go back outside. Keep to light colors, as well, as they reflect heat.

DO SILK PILLOWCASES REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO YOUR SKIN (AND HAIR)?

There is something so glamorous, so romantic about sleeping on silk. But that’s not the only reason celebrities and experts have been raving about silk pillowcases and sheets. The luscious, cool, glam, makes-me-feel-like-a-queen factor is one thing but our skin and hair actually need silk. Why?

Silk and hair

  • Sleeping on silk can help prevent hair from thinning… really! Cotton fabrics may seem soft but they cause friction – gripping and tugging at our strands as we move in our sleep, thereby leading to hair breakage and split ends. Silk, on the hand, is much smoother, so hair simply slides over the surface however much you toss and turn. The result? Less tangling or breakage. Added bonus? A blow dry will last much longer.
  • Since silk traps less body heat than other fabrics, we wake up sans frizzy strands or a messy bed head.
