- Sunscreen Protection

Applying a sweat-proof sunscreen lotion with a moisturiser that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 protects against UVA and UVB rays and keeps it healthy. Therefore, you should apply sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before stepping outside. Sunscreen should always be reapplied after contact with water or after exercise as it makes the sunscreen less effective.
- Protect your Eye and Skin
Wearing sunglasses, a broad rimmed sun hat or carrying an umbrella should protect skin and eyes from the blistering summer heat.
- No Alcohol/Aerated Drinks
With no benefit in terms of nutrition, alcohol, caffeine or aerated beverages only provide empty calories and a bloated stomach. Sweetened coffee, as well as fruit juice with added sugar should also be limited.
