Stay cool and safe in the heatwave by following these handy tips

The heatwave is here… Tips to stay safe

The sun is finally here… Hurray! The UK is expected to experience heatwaves this week, with some areas reaching as high as 32℃.

This means that many of us will be considering heading outdoors, whether it’s for work, to relax in the garden or to socialise with family and friends.

The sun is great for getting extra vitamin D and improving your mood, but when it’s so hot there are some important things you will need to do to keep yourself cool.

Check out some tips for staying safe as the weather heats up…

Stay hydrated

Drink plenty of water throughout the day, even if you don’t feel thirsty. Avoid alcohol and caffeine, as they can lead to further dehydration.

Wear the right clothes

Choose lightweight, loose-fitting and light-coloured clothing to help your body stay cool. You may also want to wear a wide brim hat to provide extra shade and help prevent burning.

Pack your sunglasses!

Did you know that the sun can cause serious damage to your eyes and even cause conditions like macular degeneration, cataracts and even sunburn on the outer layer of your eye. 

It’s a good idea to invest in some sunglasses that have high UV protection, like UV400, which are a feature of all our shades here at Genuine Style.

Use sun cream

One of the most important things to remember during a heatwave is that you need to regularly apply sunscreen. Using a high SPF spray, cream or lotion will protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Limit physical activity

Try to avoid strenuous physical activities, especially during the hottest times of the day which is usually between 10 am. and 4pm.

Use fans and air conditioning

Air conditioning and fans are an absolute life-saver when it’s extremely warm. You can even get small portable fans that can be easily carried with you wherever you go!

Take cool showers or baths

Taking a cool shower or bath can help lower your body temperature and make you feel cooler and fresher. 

Help others

Ensure that your pets have access to fresh water and shade. Also check on your elderly family members, neighbours, and anyone with pre-existing health conditions, as they are more susceptible to heat-related illnesses.

When it comes to your eyes, wearing sunglasses is absolutely key. And don’t forget that we offer free next UK delivery on premium designer sunglasses, meaning that you can get them in time for the heatwave and ensure your eyes are protected.
