Our Cures for Toasty Temps

It’s been H-O-T this week in Chicago with a capital “H”! Short of jumping into the nearest pool, we’ve compiled a few of our favorite ways to beat the heat and cool down your jets:

-Make a batch of healthy homemade popsicles! We shared a few simple yet delicious recipes here – think honeydew lime and green tea peach.

-Keep a cucumber water mister handy in your desk or bag. Add cool water and a couple slices of cucumber to a miniature spray bottle. When you want to freshen up, lightly mist your face. Cucumber is naturally moisturizing and, as a bonus, smells delicious.

Jazz up your glass of water with slices of fruit or fresh herbs. Let natures candy sweeten up otherwise tasteless water and kick it up a notch! You’ll end up drinking more water when it’s infused with flavor. Our favorites include lime, mint and orange.
