How to Take Care of Yourself in Summers

By True Scoop

Hydrate yourself: Drink water, coconut water, and drinks rich in electrolytes for hydration and to replace lost salts.

Protect against sunburns: To prevent tanning, sunscreen with SPF 30+ should be reapplied every two hours especially when swimming or sweating.

Dress the right way: Dress in light, loose-fitting clothing made of natural fabrics such as cotton that will allow your skin to breathe.

Find a shady area: Keep off direct sunlight between 10 A.M. and 4 P.M.; find shade during peak heat.

Wear something protective: Wear sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats and clothes that protect against UV radiation.

Eat lighter foods: Use fruits and vegetables as meals for quick digestion, moisturizing your body and giving it enough nutrients.

Have cold baths: Take showers or baths with cold water often so as to get refreshed both internally and externally when one needs to cool down one’s body temperature.

Avoid tiredness from being too busy : Do not do more intense workouts at high temperatures; exercise early morning or late evening instead.

Cooling options are available: Instead of opening windows, use fans and air conditioners.

Stay Informed: Keep an eye on weather updates and heat advisories to plan your activities accordingly.
