Mint juice is also a good option, it has numerous health benefits. But do avoid soft drinks and caffeinated drinks as they dehydrate you.
Swimming – Swimming is the best way to cool off. By this, water evaporates into the skin and makes us feel cool. If you are unable to go to the pool, you can take a bath, sprinkle water or wet your hair or soak your feet underwater.
Dress light – If you are at home, you can wear anything, shots or any pajama. If you are to go anywhere out, opt for loosely woven natural fabrics, such as linen or bright colors. This fabric is breathable, it allows the body to shed heat and the brighter colors will reflect heat from the sun.
Try to stay on the lowest floor – The top floor of any house is the hottest. Hence try to live on the lowest floor. As you go down, the degree of hotness decreases.
