Tips for a Sun-Safe Summer

Summer brings warmth and sunshine. As temperatures rise, it's essential to prioritize your well-being to stay healthy and happy throughout the season.

Here are some expert tips from our hospital to help you make the most of summer while keeping your health in check:

⦁ Stay Hydrated:

It's crucial to stay hydrated to prevent dehydration and heat-related illnesses. Drink plenty of water throughout the day, especially if you're spending time outdoors or engaging in physical activities.

⦁Protect Your Skin:

Sunscreen is your best defense against harmful UV rays that can cause sunburn, premature ageing, and skin cancer. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher generously to all exposed skin.

⦁Beat the Heat:

Wear lightweight, breathable clothing. Avoid strenuous activities during the hottest parts of the day, and take regular breaks if you're working or exercising outside.

Practice Food Safety:

Warmer temperatures can increase the risk of food borne illnesses. Keep perishable foods refrigerated until ready to eat. 

Stay Active Safely:

Enjoy outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, or biking avoiding peak hours of heat. Listen to your body's signals to avoid overexertion.

Plan for Travel Health:

If you're travelling, pack essential medications and take steps to prevent travel- related illnesses like traveler's diarrhea or insect bites.

Stay well, and make the most of summer's adventures!
