10 ways the Chilly Towel can improve women’s lifestyle
About the Chilly Towel
The Chilly Towel is an instant cooling towel founded by cancer survivor and fitness enthusiast Tara Lock. Due to the unique hyper-evaporative fibres in the Chilly Towel, this unique towel becomes cooler than ambient air when wet, which enables the towel to maintain a temperature that feels cool to the skin. The fibres retain water, which provides cooling relief while staying dry to touch for hours.
We are so proud of how multi-functional this unique cooling towel can be. We have discovered 10 ways the Chilly Towel can improve women’s lifestyle.
1. Relieves Hot Flushes
For anyone that has experienced a hot flush (a sudden feeling of feverish heat, typically as a symptom of menopause) – all you want is instant relief. You can simply wet, wring and shake the Chilly Towel until it is dry, and place the Chilly Towel directly on the back of your neck or your body to cool down in seconds. If you experience hot flushes frequently throughout the day, re-wet your Chilly Towel a few times throughout the day, as it can remain chilled for hours each time.
2. Reduces Fevers & High Temperatures
While not exclusive to women’s health, the Chilly Towel can be used to provide relief to fevers. If you have a high temperature, you can place the cooling towel on your forehead while lying in bed to help lower your body heat. The benefit is, the Chilly Towel won’t saturate your clothing or bedsheets because it is dry to touch.
3. Assists with Menopause Symptoms
Many women experience overheating and hot flushes as a symptom of menopause. The sudden, intense feeling of heat in the face, neck, arms, torso coupled with rapid or irregular heartbeat, pulse and heart palpitations causes a flushed, reddened face and neck and perspiration. Some women, like me, also experience hot flushes at night (known as a night sweat). Using your Chilly Towel on your most problem areas helps combat the feeling of overheating when it occurs.
4. Goes with the Flow – Improves Bad Circulation
A natural remedy to improve blood circulation is the ‘hot and cold treatment’ – which involves putting the affected body part in the warmth then alternative it with something colder. You could start with a bowl of warm water to provide heat, then placing the Chilly Towel on your body to provide cool.
5. Actively Reduces Sports Stress
Women may sometimes over-exert themselves during fitness activities, active sports and exercise. Remember to pack the Chilly Towel for every sporting event so you have a way to bring your body temperature down and keep cool. The Chilly Towel cools to 30 degrees below your average body temperature so you can play sports and hit the gym with ease.
6. Your Coolest Travel Companion
Don’t forget to pack your Chilly Towel on your next travels. In hot and dry climates, overheating can make you feel tired and lethargic – the opposite of what you want on holidays! In my recent vacation to Bali, Indonesia, I placed the Chilly Towel on the back of my neck and back for instant cooling relief. The cooling towel is kept fresh when the towel is moist in the container: compact and travel friendly.
7. Your Favourite Gym Buddy
Prior to being diagnosed with cancer, I was actually sourcing this unique cooling towel for hitting the gym! It was only until I underwent chemotherapy did I discover the multitude of ways an instant cooling towel can assist my lifestyle. I still take my Chilly Towel with me to every gym session – it is placed on the back of my neck during weight training and cardio. When I’m home, I simply pop it into the washing machine (it is machine washable).
8. Work Benefits
Some of our customers work in hot environments – e.g. a busy commercial kitchen, where the ovens and cook tops create a hot atmosphere. It is an amazing, cost effective way of keeping cool while you work. The best thing is the Chilly Towel is re-usable, so you can continue to enjoy it after every wash.
9. Assists with Chemotherapy & Other Heat Related Symptoms
When I underwent chemotherapy over 2 years ago, I experienced overheating as a side effect of my treatment. The Chilly Towel helped me feel comfortable throughout my entire treatment and recovery process. I still experience body overheating as an ongoing side effect from the chemotherapy so I use my Chilly Towel on a daily basis. It has also been effective and helpful to customers experiencing similar heat-related symptoms from other illnesses and treatments.
10. Proudly supporting the NBCF
We are proud to be supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation for every pink Chilly Towel sold online. We believe this indirectly improves women’s lifestyles – Australia wide.
About Tara Lock, Founder of Chilly Towel
After being diagnosed with cancer over 2 years ago, and experiencing constant overheating throughout chemotherapy, I started sourcing and testing over 30 different cooling fabrics before perfecting and bringing the Chilly Towel to life in 2015.
Prior to my diagnosis, I was initially sourcing a towel that would keep me cool after the gym, but I have since discovered this product can assist people for various reasons from overheating; fevers, hot flushes, medical conditions, bad circulation, menopause and sports & heat stress.
Due to the unique hyper-evaporative fibres in the Chilly Towel, this unique towel becomes cooler than ambient air when wet, which enables the towel to maintain a temperature that feels cool to the skin. The fibres retain water, which provides cooling relief while staying dry to touch for hours.
One of the main symptoms throughout my illness was night sweats which also occurred during the day. While I am extremely pleased to say I have fought my cancer battle and won, I still experience this ongoing side effect from the chemotherapy. I use the Chilly Towel to assist with my overheating on a daily basis.
Being diagnosed with, and beating cancer has given me strength to strive for something positive in my life. My dream is to share this fantastic, affordable quality product that can assist so many people who are going through similar experiences.
