It's summer in my country and we are having the hottest summers ever. Yesterday we had a 37 celsius and I guess today was the same. I have to go and bathe myself 3 times a day. Today there was a 2 hour black out and I bathe 4 times. Can't deal with the stickiness and the sweat. I also ate a lot of ice cream to cool down and drink tons of water because my throat is very dry. How about you how many times do you bathe during the summer? What other things you do to make yourself cool?

I hope it going to rain soon because it the heat here is unbearable. Yesterday it was the hottest day here I'm also felt it because of our chair it is very hot to sit there I feels like I'm going to lay eggs. They said that it going to rain soon by 2 weeks.

I take a bath whenever I feel hot and sweaty cuz it's very uncomfortable. Sometimes I still take a bath at night before going to sleep to take scrape off those excess body heat I've accumulated during the day. I sleep better that way. Sometimes after taking a bath in the morning, I'm starting to sweat already so I'd take a bath in the afternoon again to keep me cool. This is the hottest summer I've experienced so far.

In our country also it is summer time and hot. So i too take bath 2/3times a day. I am a person who sweats a lot normally, so it is very uncomfortable to stay with sweating.

Wow, I know the feeling. It's summer here, humid! and worst there are electric black outs. Well, like you I have been looking for ways to keep myself cold. I did resort to taking lots of baths, but found that it's not really good because of the water bills. So, I resorted to rubbing ice all over my body most especially my face, arms, legs and neck. It proves a great thing to do because it does quench the heat. I've also resorted to just keeping my body under water for a long time. It's especially effective and efficient because I won't need to change the water a lot of times. But I think the most effective way to keep cool is by going to the mall and just staying there when I don't have anything to do. Their air conditioning system is amazing and there are a lot of seats there to just hang out - one disadvantage though is the fact that there are a lot of things that would tempt you to spend on.

Hi! You must be from the Philippines too. I take a bath 2 to 3 times a day. I think this is the worst summer I've ever had. I work from Monday to Friday and here in our office our airconditioning broke down, so we had to replace it with new ones. I used to love summer but this is terrible. I wish this would be over soon. I drink 3 to 4 liters of water a day, which is more than what is required but I can't help it, its really hot.

I reach 3 times for a day whenever I'm at home, I don't really do other things to cool me down except the fan and taking a bath.

If its really hot I will bathe as much as I can. If Im not at the beach I will be in the Air conditioning. Before we had AC I bathed tons of times. More than five times. I used to fill the tub with water and just sit in with my baby. It was miserable. Thank Heavens for Air conditioning! Also I try to keep the house dark. I put my body sprays in the refrigerator. Its quite refreshing dl

Yes summer is very, very hot in the Philippines. So you're a Filipina, glad to know I have a friend from my country. Yesterday I bathed in the morning and last night also. I don't eat those cold quenchers because I'm not feeling well. I had a sore throat. To cool myself, I go out and sit under our tree.

Everyday bathing is different from summer bathing. Yes, our place is very very hot. Though, we have a good bath in the morning just before leaving to the office and working there for 8 long hours makes us tired and total sweating - hence I prefer to have a good shower after my arrival from the office,this gives me lot of relief and also helps me in sound sleep.
