Beat the Heat

What to Wear

1. Light Coloured Clothes- Dark clothing absorbs more heat, and tight clothes don't let sweat.

2. Sunglasses-They prevent harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from your corneas and protect your eyesChoose sunglasses that block 90 to 100 percent of UV rays.

How to Stay Hydrated

1. Water - Don't wait until you're thirsty! Drink water throughout the day to prevent dehydration. Use the color of your urine to guide if you're hydrated enough — the clearer the better.

2. Juice - All natural juice without added sugar not only provides hydration but also important nutrients to keep you active in hot weather.

3. Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine- Like alcohol, caffeine sucks the moisture out of you.

What to Eat

Fruits and Vegetables- They are easy to digest and often high in water content. Salads will keep you feeling light and hydrated.

When to Stay Out of the Sun

Avoid peak hours of sunlight when the temperatures and UV rays are at their highest, normally between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
