Beat Summertime Heat Flares With A Few Cool Tools
Chill Pal Cooling Towel~ Know those places on your body where you can feel your pulse? Those ‘pulse points’ can quickly cool your body temperature when they come in contact with cold water. This happens because the blood vessels in these areas are close to the surface. Most of us are familiar with our neck and wrist ‘pulse points’:
Silicone Beverage Glasses~ Keep a cool beverage by the pool, or at a picnic with these dishwasher safe containers. They will bend to fit into backpacks, purses, or baskets.
Cooling Pillow~ ‘As cool as the other side of the pillow’…or the pillow itself! Memory foam and a heat diffusing cooling gel make this pillow perfect for those hot summer nights:
Laptop Cooler~ Obviously this is not for your body. However considering the fact that I’m forced to hibernate indoors for 3 months out of the year here in the desert, taking good care of my laptop is essential!
Cooling Puppy Towel~ Let’s not forget the pups!! I love the idea of this cooling towel for dogs. Especially now that so many outdoor cafes and such are starting to allow dogs. This would be a great traveling accessory for your furry companion, who as we all know, helps those with chronic illness to feel better in SO many ways!
