These Cute Sanrio Cooling Goods Will Help Prevent “Face Mask Heat Stroke”

Plus, they look so adorable!

We’ll probably be wearing face masks for a while to prevent COVID-19. Wearing masks in this hot weather, we should be wary of “face mask heat stroke.” Wearable cooling goods are gaining attention with which you can prevent a heat stroke while wearing a face mask. In this article, we’re sharing items you can use in the hot summer featuring cute Sanrio characters.

The key to preventing a heatstroke is the neck.

Be aware of face mask heatstroke! The key to prevent it is the neck.

According to JMA (Japan Meteorological Agency), the temperature from May to July in Japan will be about the same or higher as previous years. Since it’s still recommended to wear a face mask, people are concerned that there will be more people who will get face mask heatstroke.

Doctors say that wearing a face mask in hot weather can make the body more likely to keep the heat inside the body and the face mask makes it humid. It makes you less likely to feel your thirst that can lead to dehydration.

So this year, it's more important than ever to stay in the shade where you can keep cool and to hydrate yourself frequently. To cool your body efficiently, you can start with the thick blood vessels on the sides of your neck.
