Keep your cool with this simple lifehack


Last week Lifehacker UK and American Express brought us 12 new style, home and travel lifehacks to celebrate the latest range of Amex Offers. These quick and easy solutions have been designed to help you save time and money –- just like Amex Offers.

Inspired by these exclusive lifehacks, we decided to create our own and asked you for your ideas. With soaring temperatures in the UK this week, you suggested that a solution to help beat the heat would be invaluable. So, we asked American Express to help us select a new lifehack and we’ve chosen this cool new offering:

Wet a clean sweatband and put it in the freezer overnight or for a couple of hours before you need it. Take it out and leave it to rest for 20 minutes. Then simply slip it on your wrist. The sweatbands will help you to keep cool whether you need a refreshing boost when exercising or simply feel a bit hot and bothered.

Sweatbands are machine washable, so you can wash and wear them over and over again.
