The dog days of summer are officially upon us. While the initial heat of June entices with new warmth, by late July we’re ready to escape from the sun on sweltering days. At our LPC communities, we offer central air conditioning in the majority of our communities. Regardless, if you would like to turn the dial down and conserve energy, here are a few ways to beat the heat in your Lincoln apartment.
Host a Spa Day
There are many cooling treatments offered at spas that can be recreated in the home. One of those is a revitalizing face mask. With the help of household ingredients, you can whip up a mixture in no time. Then, pop it into the fridge and apply once cold. This treatment will not only leave you refreshed, but it will also nourish your skin. For even more cooling relief, wet a towel with cold water, douse it with a few drops of essential oil, and place it on your forehead after a long day out in the sun. For added zen, play soothing music or practice meditation.
Make Cold Treats
One of the best ways to beat the heat is via dessert! Whether it be ice cream, gelato, or snow cones, you can remake all of these summertime indulgences at home. Tap into your inner child and make popsicles a part of your daily diet. Not only will they please your palate, but there are many healthy recipes that will help you reach your fruit quota for the day. Offerings like cucumber mint, orange rosemary, and berry cheesecake are on the menu in this fun blog post.
Switch Up Your Bedding
If you’re one of those people who blast the A/C while sleeping, we have an alternative solution. Recent innovations have resulted in a slew of blankets and pillows that can regulate temperature efficiently, leaving sleepers not too hot and not too cold. One of our favorites is from a brand called Buffy, who has released a line of comforters made entirely from eucalyptus, which offers a highly breathable filling. Not only will these blankets ward off night sweats, but they’re also entirely plant-based.
