Temperatures have risen across the states in the country, with some going as high as 37°C in certain spots, believed to be due to the active phase of the Southwest Monsoon.

In fact, it was reported on Monday, 13 August, that the scorching hot weather in Malaysia is expected to last until October when the inter-monsoon season arrives.

With that said, here are some things you can get to help you stay cool during this period of time:

1. Pat down your sweat on a hot day using this "magic" cooling towel

A cooling towel is said to be made of a combination of materials that enable the towel to have better absorbency and the ability to evaporate moisture much better than other regular cloths or towels.

To use it, just dampen the cooling towel with cold water and drape it around your neck or head for a cooling relief when temperatures soar, especially in situations where humidity is low to moderate.

It's best to use it when you go for a run or to cool down afterwards.

2. Use a portable fan for an instant cool down whenever you need it

The best part is that you don't even need to find a plug to use it - just make sure you (re)charge it using the cable provided.

Humidifiers are popular these days because their primary function is to add moisture to the air that could help prevent dry skin during these hot and humid days.
