Ways to Protect Yourself from the Sun
- Try not to go out in the sun during peak hours. The sun is more active and more likely to receive sun or heatstroke.
- If you choose to swim in the sea, do it in specially designated places where there is a rescue team or a medical center nearby.
- When coming out of the sea, be sure to wipe off a dry towel and apply a sunscreen that is more suitable for your skin. Try to spend most of your time in the shade or in rooms that have air conditioning. To avoid colds, do not stand near the air conditioner in wet clothes. The air temperature should be at least 26 degrees Celsius.
- It is better not to swim in the sea or take children out for walks in the heat. The child’s body is not ready to bear the heat. You should periodically take a shower, bath, swim in the pool, or wipe with a damp towel.
- Go outside wearing a hat (Panama, cap). It is better to wear clothes made of pure cotton, but do not forget that it also lets in sunlight (in wet condition up to 20%).
- Eyes must also be protected from the sun, so remember to wear sunglasses.
- We lose more moisture in the sun, so drink a lot of bottled or freshwater, about 3 liters per day.
- To avoid intestinal infections, do not buy food outside, eat at home, or in restaurants. Store food in the fridge; it spoils quickly in the heat.
- In hot weather it is better not to use cosmetics, they may cause pigment spots on your skin.
- Be vigilant. Pay attention to people around you, because someone may need your help. Elderly people, children, and hypertensive patients need special support.
- Do not use alcoholic beverages and nicotine, as their effects are multiplied in heat, which can affect the heart very badly.
- Do not exercise and limit yourself to hard work. Your body does not know how to cope with the heat, and you still stress it.
