While many of us will be turning the AC on blast to cool the rooms down, some of us may want to find other ways to keep our bodies feeling cool to get a good night's rest in. At the popular home goods store NITORI, their N-Cool line offers bedding and pillow cases made out of a special material that feels cool when touched.

We’ve tried it out ourselves and we can definitely say the material is cool to the touch and soothing. NITORI has extended this line to pets as well, so next time you’re looking to buy a new bedding sheet for the summer, make sure to grab the N-Cool pet bed for your furry friend as well.


Sun Umbrellas ☂️

Last on the list are sun umbrellas. I'm sure you've seen by now more and more ladies carrying their sun umbrellas as they're walking. Not only does this help to keep their skin from getting any sun damage, but many carry these umbrellas as a way to block the intense sun rays from beating down on them. And as you can see from the image below, you can see just how effective it is in carrying an umbrella as it blocks the heat away from the body.

As a way to be inclusive to all, starting this year, more and more shops are carrying not only umbrellas for ladies but for men as well. So next time you are feeling like the sun is draining you out, head into one of the department stores or online and stay protected with your very own sun umbrella.
