Beat the summer heat 1

Stay hydrated
The summer season is here and it's time to think about preventing dehydration and heat-related illness. Very few people know that the best time to have fluids is before you are thirsty because by the time you are thirsty, your body is already dehydrated. So, make it a habit to drink at least 15 glasses of water a day.

Use a sunscreen
Use a sunscreen before going out in the sun. Apply it at least 30 minutes before going outside. The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) should be 15 or more.
