This past weekend, the Dallas-Fort Worth area experienced triple digit temperatures that can put a damper on outdoor plans if you are are not adequately hydrated. Last week, I talked about water hydration needs for the average person and the importance of staying hydrated. So as we are running errands, heading to amusement parks, outdoor concerts, watching sports games or just sitting on our backporch – not only do we need to say hydrated but we also need to wear sunscreen and keep cool.
For this segment of DSM’s Merry Christmas Monday, I was shopping at Sports Authority and I passed by a display of water bottles, personal misting fans, personal misters and combination misting/water bottles. This is a great idea for adults and kids alike so I’m going to profile some of my favorite products to help keep our body temperature down.
For a personal mister that has a fine misting spray rather than large drops, try the Orbit Personal Misting Bottle. This bottle has a 16-Ounce water capacity with a contoured grip design on the pump handle making it easy to pump and read pressure gauge on the side of the lid. Retailing at Amazon for around $16.00.
Another mister product that I liked is from Brookstone Mist and Sip 20 oz hydration bottle. It’s a stainless steel Mist N Sip is water bottle and mister in one. When you want to hydrate, just drink from the resealable nozzle. To cool off, simply push the button and Mist N Sip sprays a refreshing water mist. Holds up to 20 oz. of water. An insulated sleeve prevents condensation and keeps hands dry. Includes a convenient carry handle. Mist N Sip makes staying cool and hydrated during your workout or a day in the sun a whole lot easier.

This next product is one of my favorites to keep in the car or in my purse. In Dallas, the traffic is horrendous and you never know when you’ll be stuck sitting in the car for long periods of time. Even with the AC on, it’s still important to keep cool. Cool Off Citrus Ice is one of those products, retailing for just $10 and coming with 24 different cloths this is perfect for outdoor sports games and road trips.
When you are hot cool off with Cool Off. Introducing Cool Off a natural, unique personal cooling towelette that refreshes, renews and reenergizes you anytime a quick cool down is needed, whether the temperature is hot, you’ve been participating in sports, fitness, or outdoor activities, experiencing a hot flash or your mood is fried. The ultra-soft towelettes come in convenient single-use portable packets that are infused with a clean-scented blend of natural cooling herbs, moisturizing botanicals and essential oils. You simply wipe on Cool Off and then press on the skin to build the chill. National research indicates that consumers report cooling effects up to an hour and a half with the average chill lasting 20 minutes. I’ve tried these and they are wonderful, quick and easy!
