Here’s The Best Thing About The Sri Lankan Heat

Yep, there is such a thing.

We know. Sometimes all you’re good for these days is lying about in a bath of sweat and bemoaning the fact that it’s too hot to do a thing. Would you believe us if we told you that this heat is actually a detox in disguise? That’s right—the sweat you see pooling around you consists of your body’s toxins being expelled at an accelerated rate…and we have only this blistering heat to thank. With weather this hot, substances such as alcohol, cholesterol, and salt are all expunged from your body at a rate fast enough to make Lewis Hamilton stop in his tracks. (Too lame? Okay, we’ll move on.)

Don’t just take our word for it. Try scheduling an exercise class the morning after a big night out. Yea maybe you’ll feel like one big mess of blood, sweat, and tears at the beginning, reeking of who knows what. But half an hour in, you’ll already feel the difference. You’ve sweated so much your tummy isn’t churning and it doesn’t take all your willpower to move. Released of all its mean girl toxins, your body is already bouncing back.

So forget your Bikram yoga and sauna sessions—save the moolah, this weather has you covered. Pull your yoga mat out into your garden or go for a game of tennis while the sun’s still out. Not only will you get your blood pumping and break a sweat good enough for you to feel reborn, you’ll also be absorbing Vitamin D like a machine…and getting an athletic tan that’ll make you feel just like Sharapova. Ace.
