Practical Tips to Beat the Summer Heat

S hield From Sun Exposure U se UV Protection

– Cover areas of the body prone to damage from overexposure to harmful sunrays. For example, wear a hat with a wide brim to protect the scalp and face, or tie a bandana around your neck while outdoors.

- Wear sunscreen that offers high UV-A and UV-B protection when heading out into the sun or into the water, regardless of length of time or if the sun is visible. Use a lotion applicator to get hard-to-reach places such as the back, feet or ankles. Wear sunglasses with UV-protected, polarized lenses.

- Use insect repellant (store-bought or natural remedies) to shield yourself from disease carrying bugs, including mosquitos and ticks. Especially if you are spending your summer nights outdoors. – Pack a bag with back-up supplies (sunscreen, bug spray, sunglasses, a hat, lightweight cardigan, extra water supply, etc.) Keep in your car or at a family/friend’s house for impromptu occasions or in case you forget.
