With temperatures getting higher week after week, we're all in need of something refreshing. That's why, for our latest Mashable Photo Challenge, we asked readers to share photos of how they cool off from the summer heat.
Many of the submissions were of watery scenes and icy treats that seem inviting in this dreadful humidity. We also saw pets enjoying tropical fruits, frosty drinks by the poolside and speeding cars with their windows rolled down.
Take a look at the featured photos, below. And don't sweat it if you're nowhere near the blue ocean or your neighborhood swimming pool. You can do just fine at home with some DIY ways to stay cool.
