Additional Tips for Staying Cool

Ah, you want more tips to stay as cool as a Camp Master cucumber? We’ve got you.

  1. Unleash Your Inner Fashionista: We’re not talking about turning your uncle’s “stoep” into the high fashion runways of Milan, but dressing right can make all the difference. Opt for loose, lightweight, and light-coloured clothing that lets the breeze waltz right through. Think cotton, linen, or any fabric that feels natural and gentle on your skin. Embrace those flowy summer vibes and let the sweat stains be a thing of the past.
  2. Cool As Ice: Listen here: there is no rule that says ice baths are only for David Goggins. Fill up a bucket with ice and dip your feet in, or wrap an ice pack in a towel and place it on your neck for an instant chill-out session. Ice, ice, baby – it’s not just for your drinks!
  3. Get Your Timing Right: True Camp Masters know that timing is everything. Want to host a braai without turning into a human puddle? Plan your outdoor gatherings for the late afternoon or early evening when the heat starts mellowing down, and the skies show off their majestic hues. There’s no sunset like an SA sunset.
  4. Spritz, Spritz, Spritz: Give yourself the gift of an instant cool-down with a refreshing spritz. Fill up a spray bottle with some cool water, maybe add a hint of refreshing essential oil, and voila! A quick mist over your face and body, and suddenly you’re feeling as fresh as a daisy. It’s like a personal rain shower, minus the soggy clothes. Trust us, everyone in your circle’s going to want a try.
