Surviving a Heat Wave/Summer Heat – Royals Lesson!

Ciao Royals! Hot weather can be a nuisance to every royal, whether in summer or year round depending on your climate.  When a heat wave strikes, how can one survive it and stay comfortable?


NECESSITIES:

-WATER!!!! I love you all dearly so I know I sound a little mom-like here when I say very insistently that you must STAY HYDRATED. The easiest way to get heatstroke is to let yourself get dehydrated during a heat wave! That is very bad! You don’t want that! So please, stay hydrated! For every soda/sugary beverage you drink, drink 2 cups water. Drink even if you don’t feel thirsty. Just keep hydrated! Even SLIGHT dehydration can cause headaches, dry/chapped lips/skin, fatigue, irritability, and more. Top Tier Priority- Stay Hydrated! 

-Deodorant/Anti-Perspirant : Royals first priority in a heat wave is safety, second priority is comfort! And one way to stay somewhat comfortable in a heat wave is to have a strong antiperspirant/deodorant. TIP: If you didn’t know the difference already, deodorant and anti-perspirant are different things. A deodorant can be an antiperspirant too, but not all deodorants have anti-perspirant properties. Now, wearing an anti-perspirant can help you feel more comfortable because of confidence reasons, but it will also help to prevent sweat buildup under your arms which can be super uncomfortable. But remember Royals, sweating is natural and it’s the body’s way of cooling you down! Never make fun of anyone or feel ashamed for natural body functions!

-Sunscreen: Heat Wave or not, sunscreen is an essential in my book, as harmful rays from the sun can be cancer causing! Plus it is always a good idea to take care of your skin! I recommend SPF 50 or higher. 

-Folding Fan: While uncommon nowadays, having a reliable cooling agent can be a lifesaver in a heatwave. During the spring/summer these can be picked up relatively cheaply from the dollar store. Plus you can communicate with them in secret codes (Which I may do a post on soon!)

OTHER HELPFUL THINGS:

-Parasols can be super helpful to keep the intense sun off your face/body, and getting one with UV protectant can be super good too!

-If you prefer dressing nice even in summer, Chiffon blouses are lighter and more comfortable during heat waves.

-Hats can help to keep sun off your face AND can be super fashionable.
 
-Some Makeup (like BB creams) include SPF 50 or higher sun protection. Just check the bottle.

-For something light yet regal looking, try pairing sandals with flowy chiffon pieces for a regal Roman/Greek-esque look!

A CLOSING NOTE:

Despite your seemingly endless energy, it is important to remember that heat waves can be incredibly dangerous and deadly. It is not shameful to need to take a break and go inside to AC, or drink some water or rest in the shade. It is not shameful to request to remain inside during a heat wave if you feel you do not want to battle the elements. Remember that your health and comfort are top priorities!
