Holy smokes! This heat wave sweeping our nation has no signs of ending. Don’t fret! We are here to help you keep your cool and beat the heat. We all know to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. But what if there were faster ways to cool off? The best and fastest way to cool down is by using one of your quick cooling spots. Here are three very practical and simple ways you can beat the heat on-the-go, at home or on a splurge!
WHAT IS A QUICK COOLING SPOT?
This is a spot that you can utilize to bring your body temperature down, which is typically any place you can feel your pulse. There are several pulse points on your body: forehead, back of neck, crease of your arm, wrists, inner thigh, back of your leg and your feet.
