UK heatwave: Dr Amir’s top hacks to keeping cool on the hottest night of the year


In addition, while taking a cool shower can be refreshing in the moment, it doesn’t help you to cool down in the long term.

Instead, Doctor Amir recommends taking a warm shower instead so that the body can then cool down.

Other useful tips

Taking advice from the Department of Health, the Government of Western Australia, the recommendations include a foot soak and bedsheets.

For example, soak your feet in cold water for 10 minutes before going to bed.

“Heat is lost more quickly through your extremities (feet and head). Wetting your hair is another alternative,” it noted.

As for bedsheets, it’s best to “opt for lightweight, cotton blankets” – and to use fans in adequately ventilated area.

Moreover, keep your home as cool as possible by drawing the shades, curtains, and blinds during the hottest part of the day.
