We’re in the midst of summer, and along with cranking up the AC and enjoying dips in pools, there are a number of ways to relax and cool off in a Lincoln community. Here are a few relaxing activities that will help you cool off in style.
Make Cold Treats
One of the most satisfying ways to beat the heat is with a frozen treat. Instead of braving 90-degree temperatures to head to a local ice cream parlor, try making your own scoops at home. This recipe from Barefeet in the Kitchen blends milk, heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract into a mixture you will need to freeze, whisk, and repeat over and over again to get an airy and fluffy texture. If you’re not a fan of ice cream or don’t eat dairy, we’re also loving these easy popsicle recipes.
Have a Spa Day
Skip the sauna and make your next spa experience a cooling one with at-home treatments. There are a number of spa experiences that work with cold elements to leave you feeling refreshed. Ice masks, which are masks that you put in the freezer, will refresh your senses when worn on the face. They also serve as a quick refresher when you first get home.
Host a Gathering by The Pool
A number of LPC communities boast sparkling and spacious pools, which come in handy on balmy summer days. Make your next dip a social one and invite friends over for a pool party. If you’ve been meaning to get together with your neighbors, consider organizing a community gathering and connect over pool games, burgers, and a reprieve from the summer heat.
