Few Suggestions : Avoid strenuous activity during the hottest hours, and make sure you drink plenty of non-alcoholic liquids to balance the loss of body fluid through perspiration. What you drink must be safe - either soft drinks from sealed cans or bottles, or water which has been boiled or is bottled.

Carry protective creams suitable for your skin type, which will help protect unavoidably exposed parts of the body. Stay out of the scorching sun, use what shade there is at other times, and cover up with a wide-brimmed hat and tightly woven but loose clothing.
