Your Summer Guide to Escape Heat
When you have the perfect weather, there are many things you can plan such as family picnics, barbeque, endless hours camping, or lounging in your backyard hammock. Too much sun and the subsequent heat exposure that accompanies it can disrupt the fun of course. Over-exposure to extreme sunlight can lead to issues such as:
- Sunstroke or heatstroke
In this blog, we will talk about a summer guide that will help you deal with extreme summer –
We’ll start with – the right clothing and the right accessories that go along.
Here is your summer guide to beat the heat: –
- Right clothing
Clothing – perhaps is the most underrated aspect of summer care as the dress you wear plays a vital role in how comfortable you are while outside in the heat. For instance, a brighter shade of ‘linen’ is not only fancy but also a wise choice if you are planning to step out during the day, as bright colors do not absorb much heat as compared to darker shades. Apart from linen, ‘cotton’ is another good idea if you plan to stay cool. In addition to this, there are specialized clothing that offers UV protection due to the use of special dyes and chemicals that block harmful rays.
Accessories – when it comes to accessories that go along with your summer attires, the first one on the list is quality ‘sunglasses’ that will protect your eyes from dangerous UV rays. This is why you should consider spending on a pair of good glasses that guarantee protection when you are out and since it’s a one-time investment, consider making an intelligent purchase.
Not second but something that goes hand-in-hand with quality sunglasses is a ‘hat’. A hat will help save sensitive spots on your face and promote healthy wrinkle-free skin.
Lastly, get ‘sunscreen’ with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30. It is the case with having a good lip balm handy.
Hydration – Summer leads to dehydration, which is why you should be sipping water throughout the day to maintain your health. If indulging in beverages, go for low sugar and sodium option so that your health is not compromised. We know in these busy times – Coffee and Tea have become fuel for active people but excessive consumption of caffeinated drinks can lead to dehydration as these have diuretic properties. Indulge in treats comprising of Melons, berries, soups, coconut water and other similar-natured food items from your favorite supermarket.
Diet – As some of you may already know, high salt content in a diet not only affects your blood pressure but also dehydrates you. Similarly, high-fat content in a diet puts additional strain on the digestive system, which during the hot summers can be hard to deal with.
In conclusion, it is safe to say that summers even though hard can be enjoyed by taking the necessary precautions and staying healthy. What is your summer secret? Share with us in the comment section!
