    This article provides various simple and straightforward ideas that will help you to cool down and keep your cool on a hot day. These practical suggestions can be used at home or when out and about, and many of them don't require access to electricity, which makes some of these suggestions particularly helpful if you're outside or there's a summer blackout.

    Wear clothes that will keep you cool. Linen and cotton are good fabrics for a hot day. Loose clothes are generally better for keeping cool over tight, close-fitting ones, so consider flowing garments. Don't tuck everything in and button everything up.

      Cover your skin. Long-sleeved shirts made of cotton, hemp and other natural fabrics will help deflect the sun's rays and protect your skin.

      Wear a hat. A broad-brimmed hat is essential to protect your face and to create some shade over your head.

      Wear a sarong, for men and women. Pair with shirts, skirts, shorts, Capri pants and trousers. You don't have to show your legs off to keep cool or be cool. For both sexes, you might feel cooler in lighter colors, such as white, pale blue, light green, stone, etc.

      Keep your feet cool too. Consider wearing sandals that match your outfit. You can even put on some black and white pumps or flats. Flip-flops or jandals are great too. Go barefoot for really cool feet, but be wary about walking on hot surfaces like sand. Avoid boots, obviously!

Do not rely on it alone, however. Always combine with wearing a hat, long-sleeved clothing and keeping out of the sun during the hottest part of the day.
