Oh, the toils of looking good during swimsuit season. You can't hide behind your forgiving winter wardrobe, so your self-maintenance routine is much more complex than it is during the winter months. You'd be a happy camper if you could spend more time lying on sandy shores and less time hitting the gym, taming frizzy hair, and slathering on mud masks.
Could there possibly be a fix-all to this summer beauty routine madness? Is there any way you can look great with very little effort? There sure is. Get a new air conditioner or have your current one serviced, then stock up on sunscreen because you'll be spending a lot more time at the beach.
Shed Those Extra Pounds
Have you ever wondered how people who live in extremely cold regions of the world seem unfazed by their arctic environments? Their secret is something that everybody carries around inside of them -- brown fat. Brown fat isn't like the regular body fat that everybody loves to hate. While white fat just sits there and stores lipids, just in case you need them, brown fat grabs those lipids and burns them up to keep you warm.
Brown fats have to be activated, though, and the only way to activate them is by hanging out in a cooler climate. No, you don't have to move to Antarctica to drop a few pounds; research shows that you can shed an extra 100 calories a day without putting forth any effort at all if you cool your home to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Fight Frizzy Hair
Perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of summer grooming is dealing with frizzy hair. During humid summer days, the excess moisture in the air sinks down into your hair shaft. This causes your hair to swell up, creating that oh-so-frizzy effect.
So, how could an air conditioner offer you better hair days? The answer is that every single unit naturally works to remove moisture from the air.
As air enters an air conditioner, it travels through evaporation coils, which condenses the air. As the air is condensed, moisture particles are removed and channeled to a drain in the back of the unit.
Make sure your air conditioner is sized correctly for your home and you'll achieve an optimal humidity level for nixing those wayward strands of hair.
Banish Dark Circles Under Your Eyes
If you get dark circles under your eyes in the summertime, seasonal allergies are likely to blame. Forget wasting your time on mud masks and other temporary fixes, fix the air in your home and be done with your dark circles for good.
How do you fix the quality of your home's air? You filter outdoor air before it enters your house and lower humidity levels inside your home so that mold won't grow. And, as it just so happens, air conditioners can do all of that.
HEPA filters are ideal allergy-busters because they remove up to 98% of the pollutants that enter your home. These filters are thick, though, so in order for your air conditioner to be able to use HEPA filters, it needs to have a pretty powerful airflow. If you're shopping for a new unit, look for one specifically labeled to be HEPA filter compatible.
If you already have an air conditioner, but it isn't a strong enough unit to use HEPA filters, get some high-efficiency filters for it. These are the next effective allergen fighters, removing up to 85% of pollutants from your indoor air.
If you're interested in drastically reducing the amount of time you spend on summer grooming, look no further than your local air conditioning service. Whether you're buying a new one or having your old one serviced for maximum efficiency, a well-maintained air conditioner can be your zero-effort solution to looking great this swimsuit season.
