During the summer, the sun is stronger than ever. Help protect yourself from heat exhaustion, sunburn, dehydration, and more with these quick summer tips:

  1. Stay hydrated. Sip water throughout the day to avoid dehydration and heat stress. Try keeping a bottle of water in your cupholder as a reminder.
  2. Rest when needed. If you’re feeling overheated, take a break in a cool spot. The sun and heat can zap your energy quickly this time of year.
  3. Put on sunscreen. Even when your windows are rolled up, the sun beating through the glass can burn you. Be sure to use SPF 50 or above, especially on your arms and face.
  4. Avoid caffeine and sugar. Caffeine and sugar can dehydrate you. If you need an energy boost, reach for some unsweetened tea or a healthy snack.
  5. Wear sunglasses. Polarized sunglasses with high UV protection can help protect your eyes from the summer sun as it reflects off the road, bodies of water, or other vehicles.

Stay safe out there, and keep up the good work.
