How can you protect your body in summer?
Protect yourself from extreme heat: stay cool
- Wear lightweight, light-coloured and loose-fitting clothing made of cotton, cotton absorbs moisture easily and dries up quickly, it can absorb perspiration from the body and because it also dries up quickly, it does not stick to the body and gives a cooling effect.
- While heading out don’t forget to carry umbrella. Limit your direct exposure to the sun, especially between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. when UV rays are stronger.
- Apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) with at least 30, it reduces the appearance of sun damage – discolouration, wrinkles and dark spots on face.
