3 Tips For Staying Cool On A Summertime Date

While many people think of summer as the time for love, if you’re wanting to look good and smell good during a date, the hot, sticky, sweaty summer might have you wishing you were on this date in October instead of July. But despite how hot it might be on the day of your date, there are things you can do to keep yourself cool and sweat as minimally as possible.

To help you see how this can be done, here are three tips for staying cool on a summertime date. 

Wear Thin Fabrics

The first thing you’ll want to do to ensure that you’re not getting too hot and sweaty on your date is to wear the right clothes.

Ideally, you should try to wear fabrics that are as thin as possible. While choosing something sheer might sound like a good idea, if you’re having to wear an extra layer under something because it’s too see-through, you’re defeating the purpose of wearing thin fabrics in the first place. So try to dress in just one layer of thin fabric that will allow for a lot of air movement around your body. 

Properly Hydrate

Both before your date and while you’re on your date, keeping yourself properly hydrated can make a big impact on how cool you’re able to stay when out in the heat. 

Staying hydrated will help your body better be able to maintain a lower temperature. And especially if you’re doing anything that could cause you to work up a sweat, like an outdoor activity or other physical adventure, you’re going to need to have water with you to keep yourself from overheating. That being said, if you can help it, try to keep any summertime dates in an air conditioned place, at least until the hottest parts of the day have come and gone. 

Bring The Right Accessories

There are some accessories you can and should bring with you on your date to help you stay cool and not look like a sweaty mess the whole time. 

First off, if you have long hair, bring a ponytail holder with you so that you have the option of throwing your hair up if your face and neck start getting too hot and sweaty. Additionally, it might be wise to bring along a stick of deodorant and some face blotting sheets so that any sweating that does take place can be wiped away without your date being any the wiser. 

If you’re going to be going on an important date in the heat of the summer, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you learn how you can stay cool and look cool even when the temperature is high.
