Drinking ice-cold or chilled water can give you instant relief from the scorching heat of summer. However, it can disrupt the digestion process and bowel movement. Here is a list of things you should avoid in hot weather to stay healthy and enjoy illness-free summer.


Enjoy healthy and illness free summer
Summer is a good time for outdoor activities and vacation, but it also brings with it some health risks such as sunburn, heatstroke, allergies, digestion problems, and infections. Below are some simple precautions that you can take to keep these health problems at bay and make summer safer and more enjoyable. We all love drinking ice-cold or chilled water when the temperature unbearably hot outside. While this may give you instant relief from the scorching heat of summer, it is not for your health. Here is a list of things you should avoid in hot weather to stay healthy and enjoy illness-free summer.


Avoid oily food in summer
Fried and oily foods are a big no-no, especially during summer as they can heat up body, make you feel hotter as well as cause dehydration. Try to limit your consumption of meats during summertime as they lead to increased sweating, cause digestive problems, and diarrhoea. Fried and oily food can also cause heart problems, cause weight gain, and increase your blood sugar levels.


Avoid too much exposure to direct sunlight
Exposure to a small amount of sunlight every day is essential to stay healthy as sunlight is an excellent source of vitamin D. But too much UV rays can cause sunburn, wrinkles, premature aging of skin and increase cancer risk. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays. Reapply sunscreen after swimming or sweating. Wear protective clothing before stepping put in the sun to reduce the risk of sunburn.


Avoid drinking chilled water
Drinking ice-cold or chilled water can give you instant relief from the scorching heat of summer. However, it can disrupt the digestion process and bowel movement. This can lead to low immunity, lead to fatigue or weakness. Studies have shown that drinking cold water can decrease heart rate, cause a headache, and increase chances of throat infections. Drink room temperature water or coconut water to keep yourself well hydrated.


Limit alcohol or caffeine
Drink plenty of water to replenish the fluids that the body loses through sweating and stay hydrated. But avoid drinks that contain alcohol or caffeine as these can increase the body’s fluid output.


Avoid using heavy scents during summer
Less is more when it comes to wearing fragrance in the summer as heat amplifies scents. So, avoid heavy scents in hot weather such as heavy floral blends, vanilla, musk, amber and sugary aromas. The strong smell can give anyone a headache! Instead choose for light notes like citrusy, earthy and light floral fragrance. Also, avoid dousing yourself with fragrance, instead apply a small amount of the fragrance on your pulse points throughout the day.


Fabrics you mustn t wear in summer season
Summer means the scorching heat and the constant sweat. Therefore, it is important that you choose the fabric wisely. Cotton and silk are best summer fabrics. Some fabrics are better to be avoided in the summer heat such as faux leather, nets and lace, velvet, polyester and nylon. Choose lightweight, light-coloured and loose-fitting clothing in summer to allow your blood to circulate freely. Wearing tight clothing can restrict your circulation as well as damage your hair follicles cause infection
