Beat the heat with TRUNC’s must-have items that ensure style and comfort despite the sizzle

With temperatures climbing to record-breaking highs, reaching a scorching 53°C in locations such as Iba, Zambales, and the phenomenon being mirrored in nearby Southeast Asian nations, the question on everyone’s mind is straightforward: How do you even cool down in high-degree heat? 

The human body is naturally prone to distress once the mercury surpasses 38°C, intensifying risks of heat exhaustion or worse, heatstroke. The situation worsens with rising humidity, which hinders the effectiveness of sweat—the body’s inherent cooling mechanism—as it struggles to evaporate properly.

Keeping your cool, literally, requires strategic measures: hydrated bodies, sheltered or indoor retreats during peak hours, and relying on innovative products designed to alleviate the sweltering heat (without compromising on style). Yet, implementing practical actions along with a collection of clever essentials can greatly enhance your comfort. TRUNC has curated a selection of such items, allowing you to sidestep the stifling heat with flair but are also ideal for the Philippines’ unique wet and dry seasons, making them suitable for any weather.
