2. Tie your hair up in a bun

- Stay Indoor
Avoid getting in direct contact with the sunlight, especially in our part of the world where the ozone layer is constantly depleting, the UV radiations from the sun are extremely harmful for the human body. Try to stay indoor most of the time, be it at work or home. Also to make sure your house stays cool, use heat blocking curtains, ditch the conventional lighting and switch to LED as it emits less heat.
- Plant Trees
Cultivating plants or trees in your terrace or front yard helps cool down the area naturally.Plants and trees not only provide shade but also helps cooling down the surrounding temperature through the process of evapotranspiration. Place small pots of plants on the ledge of your windows or install window planters in each room, this would help humidify the dry air circulating inside.
- Stay hydrated
Drink water before you feel thirsty. If you’ve started feeling thirsty it means your body is already dehydrated, make sure you keep yourself well hydrated. Fresh juices, milkshakes and desi lassi are some of the most effective re-hydrating agents and help normalize body temperature. Consume fresh citrus fruits and avoid eating spicy foods. For an average adult, daily water intake should not be under 3 litres a day.
