Here's the 3rd tip to beat the heat. It may come across as common sense but I know a lot of people still don't practise it.

Never Leave Home Without Sunscreen 

We've read all about the depletion of the ozone layers and how the harmful rays of the sun are resulting in a spike in the number of skin cancer cases. Yet we don't look after ourselves, especially our skin well enough. Take heed my friends as that big whole in the sky can really do serious damage to your skin if left unchecked.

Yes, I'm talking about never leaving home without applying sunscreen on your face. Your face is the most exposed part of your body. While a little sun is good as it gives us the necessary Vitamin D, over-exposure to it could damage our eyes, immune system and eventually lead to skin cancer.

To prevent this, I advise everyone to apply a sunscreen with SPF (sun protection factor) 20 to 25 before leaving the house. It will help block both UVA and UVB rays, and help diminish the effects on your skin. Help fight against or retard the occurrence of pigmentation problems and ageing. 

Here's some good news for everyone - most moisturisers in the market do come with SPF ingredients already built in so you may wish to get them. This certainly beats helping to apply another additional layer on the face.

Here's tip #2 on how to beat the heat.

Avoid Wearing Black

Black is a beautiful colour. It not only projects an air of mystery, it also makes one more alluring. And for those of us on the slightly plump side, it is the perfect colour to make us look slimmer as black gives a flattering illusion. Yet having said all this, you should avoid wearing black in this heat. 

Why do I say so?

Dark colours like black absorb light instead of reflecting it. And since light is energy, absorbing light makes something hotter. Wearing black thus makes the wearer feel hot, hot, hot! Your wouldn't want to feel any hotter than it already is.

Instead of black and other darker colours, choose light colours or even pastels as they reflect light. It will give you an instant cooling effect.
