Dancing, celebrating and singing along are always part of a festival. In intense heat, however, this can push the body to its limits. Visitors can keep a cool head with these tips.
Drink lukewarm water
At high temperatures one tends to cool down quickly. Lukewarm water helps better to reduce sweating and the like. Why? Ice-cold water makes the body sweat even more because it adapts to your own body temperature. So if you leave out the ice cubes and drink a lot, you're doing everything right. Holding your wrists briefly under ice-cold water helps to stabilize circulation.
Headwear and sun protection
Another must-have: headgear! In addition to conventional caps, there is now a wide selection of cool accessories, such as stylish fishing or cowboy hats. Our head is protected from the blazing sun and sunburn on the scalp doesn't stand a chance. You should also apply sun protection thoroughly several times during the party.
Airy but not too short clothes
In the heat, many quickly wear extremely short clothing, which can lead to dangerous sunburn in the blazing sun. Light fabrics such as linen or cotton are the best choice in high temperatures. It is also advisable to cover as much skin as possible.
Our body has to work a lot to digest hearty food in large portions. This also causes us to sweat even more. It is better to eat light food with lots of nutrients and vitamins, such as a delicious wrap or a rich bowl. Power bars made from dates or nuts also provide new energy.
