  • 1. Eat healthy and light meals

    Extreme heat and sweat during the hot summer months can leave you feeling dehydrated. Keep your body hydrated by drinking coconut water, iced tea and fresh fruit juices. If you are stepping out of the house, carry a water bottle with you. Also, if you are exercising, take a break after each exercise and hydrate your body.

    10 Foods You Should Eat In Summer

    The scorching heat poses a plethora of health problems. To maintain healthy skin and avoid sunburns apply a sunscreen with SPF 30, SPF 40 or SPF 50 as per your skin type and wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the glaring rays of the sun while you step out [2].
