    It’s been bloody hot recently. Any of you still hanging around London have been treated to around 30ÂşC of pure, unadulterated heat. But the good news is you survived, for now…

    We’re sure you’ll all be relieved to hear that next week is looking a lot more reasonable. But what if they get it wrong? Do you know how to cope in a heatwave? No? You’re in luck because below we’re treating you to our top 5 tips for staying chill in the heat

    Chill your veins

    Apparently running your wrists under a cold tap for five seconds every couple of hours can help. That’s because you have a main vein running through there, so logically your blood will cool.

    Go Green

    NB: couldn’t find a dancing aloe so this cactus will have to do

    You’re putting after-sun on every day, right? Thought so. Well, replace your standard with the aloe vera kind for a skin cooling effect

    Chrysanfakrisanthem… those hard to pronounce flowers

    Drinking chrysanthemum tea can apparently cool the head. Worth a try!

     Chill out

    Set an alarm to put a water bottle in the freezer the night before. You’ll have, unsurprisingly, a water bottle filled with ice! If you wrap the bottle in a towel before putting it in your bag 1) you won’t drench all your stuff 2) you can use the towel as a cool pack 

    Watch the clock

    The hottest time of the day is usually between 11 am and 3 pm. An easy tip here, don’t go outside between these hours. One tip further, if you’re in London head to one of the city’s free museums and art gallery’s. They have air conditioning!
