Beat the summer heat 2

Take breaks

When working outside in the Sun, take timely rest breaks in a cool area. Relax; slow down, pace yourself periodically to avoid fatigue.

Wash your face with water

Wash your face with water twice or thrice daily to keep the skin clean and cool. It will also keep your skin oil free and will prevent acne too.

Eat light meals

Eat lots of fruits and vegetables during summers. Avoid oily and heavy meals.

Treat heat exhaustion

Symptoms of heat exhaustion are dizziness, headache, feeling tired, and perhaps sick to your stomach. The remedy is to drink more fluids and get to a cooler place – cool, not ice cold, water, and air conditioning are ideal.
