aspirin and statin storage in hot climates

This may seem a silly question but it is driving me mad, Manufacturers state that Aspirin should NOT be stored above 25 Degrees Centigrade and protected from light and moisture, I can find no instructions for Statins so I assume the same to be the case, my question is when travelling in countries where the temperature is above 25 Degrees in my case this may be anything from 26-40+ how does one keep the Aspirin and Statins at 25 Degrees while Travelling.

Proper storage of simvastatin: Store simvastatin at room temperature, between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light.

If you are worried use a small cool bag with ice cubes, or cool bag in the fridge, or hotel room fridge. A test leave one tablet out is the room in a glass and see if it melts!!!

you can buy local aspirin for a short time.
