If you are planning to travel during the summer months, particularly in any tropical country then you have to take special care about your well being. It can have serious repercussion on your health if you are not familiar with the weather of the country where you are traveling. Nowadays, heat is quite intense during the summer months, which can have a negative effect on your skin and health.
Following are a few suggestions that can be useful, while you are traveling during the summer months.
Take care of your skin
Normally people prefer to wear less amount of clothes during summer months for their comfort, as a result, most of the part of their body remains exposed to the sun. This may seriously affect the skin.
Therefore, while out in sunlight, it is suggested to apply sunscreen lotion on your skin, which remains exposed. You need to apply sunscreen lotion on your face, legs, and arms, as these parts of the body usually remain exposed to the sun.
The lotions are easily available in the market and do not cost too much.
Protect your head and eyes by wearing a hat or cap
When you move out in the sun your eyes are exposed to sunlight. Many people prefer to wear sunglasses to protect their eyes. However, sunglasses are more of a style statement and do very little in protecting your eyes. It is more preferable to wear long hat or cap that can protect your eyes as well.
Type of clothes to wear
It is better to wear half shirts and pants during this season. Also, it is essential that you must avoid wearing tight clothes. Cotton clothes are ideal for this season which will help you to be more comfortable. Prefer to wear light shade clothes which do not absorb much of heat.
Drink enough fluid
Many people may suffer from dehydration problem during the summer season. Therefore, you must drink enough quantity of fluid all through the day. You must always carry a bottle of water with you. If can also carry a packet of ORS with you, it will be great.
