How To Maintain Good Hygiene During The Hot Weather

Consequently, heat causes many skin problems like rashes, pimples, ezcema and the likes. Even though we have nothing to stop the weather, but there are always ways to maintain good hygiene during the hot weather.

Stay Hydrated

During the hot weather, it is very important to stay hydrated, that is, drinking plenty of water needed by the body system irrespective of whether you feel thirsty or not. You have to do so because the body system tends to lose lot of water fluids due to the hot weather and you have to drink enough water to replace those lost fluids in the body.
Make a daily diet of lots of fruits and vegetables because these classes of food contain levels of water capable of replacing the lost water fluids in the body. Keep off totally from alcohol intake and caffeine as these leave you so dehydrated. During workout time, make water bottle your friend to ensure you drink water more often before and during exercise.

Wear the right clothes at the right time

When you have to walk in the sun, try to wear clothes that cover more skin like long-sleeved shirts, long pants or skirt, long dress because these clothes provide UV protection against the attack of the sun. Choose dark colored clothes than the ones with light colors that are also loose fitting because they provide more protection than the tight fitting clothes and light colored ones. Endeavor to schedule your outings in the cooler part of the day (evening or early morning). Sunglasses become a must have during this kind of season, to protect your eyes from the damaging effect of the sun and also add glamor to your outfit.
