Summer Ready

Miss Ohlala highlights essential points to remember during the hottest days of the year.

Summer is here, and our combined issue (July and August) celebrates the hot season in style with cute looks and accessories that send your outfits into vibrant mode. However, there are a few aspects to take into consideration at this time of the year, mainly in the Middle East, to make the most of this period. Miss Ohlala brings you five quick tips:

  1. Stay Hydrated – Drinking water is definitely the best way to do it. However, you can enhance it by adding mixed frozen berries or cucumber and mint to add some flavour and boost your intake.
  2. Wear Sunscreen – That’s quite a cliché nowadays, but a lot of people forget to apply it in these crucial areas: scalp, ears, hands, feet and lips. Make sure you get them covered to avoid burning your skin when out and about under the sun.
  3. Cool Down – Sometimes, you need a fast way to cool down after exercising at night or in the early hours of the day (avoid exercising under the sun; otherwise, you may suffer from a heatstroke). Create your own ‘spa towel’ by soaking washcloths in clean, cold water (you can add a few drops of essential oil for a scented experience), rolling them up, and placing them in a plastic container in your refrigerator. Use them on your face and neck for a cooling effect.
  4. Foot Care – Flip-flops are a common summer goto footwear, but they are too flimsy to wear for long periods. Opt for shoes that give your feet more support; you need to tense the muscles to keep flip-flops on, and it can lead to pain in your soles, plus the constant flipping on the heels can cause cracks. Leave them for the pool and beach days.
  5. Wear Sunglasses – The same way sunrays can cause burns to your skin, they can also damage your retina, leading to vision problems. Sunglasses are a stylish way to shield your eyes from harmful rays. Choose wellknown brands to guarantee that the lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB light.
