4 Ways To Stay Cool In August

August is the hottest month in Galveston. The coastal breeze does little to combat triple-digit temperatures and stifling humidity. For East Enders sweating out the summer in Galveston, we've put together a survival guide that will make it a little easier to handle the heat.

1. Cover Up

If you're headed outside in spite of the heat, remember to protect yourself. Opt for light colors over dark, looser styles, lighter fabric. Don't forget:

-Sunscreen: Sunscreen is your BFF. Make sure to buy a product that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Experts say most people use too little sunscreen and don't reapply often enough. Don't be afraid to slather.

-Your sunglasses: Protecting your peepers is important in the summer. Invest in shades that offer UV protection, which helps block harmful cataract-causing rays. Oversized sunglasses are not only trendy, they're practical.

-A hat: Choose a wide-brimmed hat to further protect your face and eyes from the sun.

2. Stay Hydrated

Though staying hydrated seems obvious, it's easy to forget to drink enough water.

"We all need a regular, abundant supply of water to keep our tissues and organs moistened and optimally functioning, to remove waste, to replace fluids lost in respiration and sweat," said Victor Sierpina,
a family medicine physician at the
University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.

So, how much should you drink?

"A rough guideline is to drink at least
a half ounce of water for each pound of your body weight daily.
According to the Institute of Medicine, an adequate liquid intake
for men is roughly 13 cups a day and about 9 cups for women,"
Sierpina said. 

3. Get In The Swim

When the weather is too hot to stomach, one of the quickest ways to cool down is to take a dip. This doesn't mean you have to head for the beach, which is often packed in August.

swimming pools, click here.

4. Don't Go Stir Crazy But...

...STAY INSIDE if you can help it. 
This doesn't mean sitting at home all day. Treat yourself to a movie, a spa day, or venture out to one of the East End's favorite cafes. If your air conditioner is on the fritz, find a place to cool down.
