Beat The Heat!

It's now summertime here in the Philippines and temperatures here in Manila reach 35-38 degrees Celsius! Turning on the air conditioner, however, is not always practical as electrical bills soar in the midst of the current economic crisis.

A cool shower usually does the trick for me. No heating of the water (which saves some energy too), then I use a shampoo and body wash containing some minty additive. Currently I'm using Head and Shoulders with menthol and Safeguard Body Wash with menthol, but I believe there are other brands out there in the market. The cool minty sensation makes the skin a little less warm for longer periods of time.
