On hot summer days, we all want to spend as much time as possible outside, soaking up the sun and making memories. While there’s nothing wrong with this, it’s important to remember to stay hydrated and keep cool. If you struggle with staying cool during the summer, here are some tips on how to avoid heat exhaustion!
- Get rid of some hair
Excess hair can trap heat and sweat in, making it difficult for your body to regulate its temperature. If you want to go bare this summer in order to stay cool, make sure that your scalp is protected against the sun by applying a high-SPF sunblock.
If you want to go bare but are worried about maintaining the hairstyle, Rejuvenate SMP recommends scalp micropigmentation to even out any potential areas that are patchy or uneven.
- Sip, don’t chug water
Chugging water will make you nauseous faster than it will hydrate you. Sipping room temperature water will hydrate you without making you feel sick. Keep your bottle full at all times so you don’t have to worry about dehydration.
- Limit time outside
You can follow every tip and trick out there to avoid heat exhaustion, but they can all only go so far. When it comes down to it, you shouldn’t push your limits in the summer heat. Limit the amount of time you spend outside and take frequent breaks to prevent any catastrophes from occurring.
- Eat a balanced meal
While hot dogs and funnel cakes are staples of the summer, they shouldn’t be the only thing that you eat. Be sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables this summer so that your body is well-prepared to deal with the rising temperatures. Many fruits, like watermelon, contain a lot of water – you’ll stay hydrated while enjoying a snack!
