Description: One major mistake to avoid when going out in the #heat is not staying hydrated. It is crucial to drink plenty of water and stay away from caffeinated or sugary beverages that can contribute to dehydration. Another mistake is forgetting to wear sunscreen. Sunburn not only causes discomfort but also increases the risk of skin cancer. Applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 is essential to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Wearing dark-colored, tight clothing is yet another mistake to avoid. These types of clothing can absorb heat and make you feel hotter. Opt for loose-fitting, light-colored clothes that allow your skin to breathe and promote better heat dissipation.
