Summer is here and that means sunny days and warm nights—making the need to stay cool essential. Cold packs are a sustainable and simple way to sit back and keep cool when the warm temperatures become too much to bear. In addition to helping you cool off on a hot summer day, cold packs can also help soothe sore muscles and joints. Active Recovery Essentials carries a variety of cold packs that you can incorporate into your active lifestyle this summer.
Let’s explore the different ways that you can use cold packs and how they can benefit your cool-down routine this summer.
Soothe Night Sweats
Whether your space is air conditioned or not, night sweats can happen, and when they do, cold packs are a fast and simple solution. Keep cold packs on reserve in your freezer for instant relief on a hot night. Place the cold pack on the back of your neck, on your chest, or on your head for a quick cool down.
Relieve Sore Muscles & Joints
Summer calls for outdoor activities like running, biking, hiking, and swimming. But sometimes those outdoor activities leave your body feeling sore and tired. Find relief for your sore muscles and joints by using a reusable cold pack instead of a bag of ice. Cold packs are securely sealed to prevent leaking, so you can bring them with you for on-the-go relief wherever you are.
Calm Red, Irritated Skin from Bug Bites
With summer comes mosquitos and other insects that can irritate the skin. Soothe itchy bug bites with a cold compress from a cold pack to help soothe swelling. Keep the cold pack on the area for 15–20 minutes and then follow up with an anti-itch cream like hydrocortisone.
Cool Down at the Pool or Beach
Before packing up for a day at the pool or beach, don’t forget a cold pack in your cooler. Cold packs offer an immediate cool down that jumping in the water might not. Set up a seat under an umbrella or in the shade and sit with your cold pack until you’ve cooled down to a comfortable temperature.
