What precautions should be taken in summer? Beware of high temperatures

Has it been much clearer when the summer begins and how does it behave depending on where we are? Well now we are going to finish this article by giving you some useful tips to enjoy this time of year without it having negative effects for your health:

  • Drink enough water. It is recommended to drink at least two liters of water per day. In this way, we will hydrate our entire body with the aim that this can work with full normality. You have to remember that our whole body is made of 80% H2O. Therefore, it is extremely important to keep it hydrated and oxygenated at all times.
  • Try not to leave during the hottest hours of the day. Here depends a little on the region where we are. But in some cities like Seville, Cáceres or Córdoba you can exceed 40 degrees of temperature from twelve in the morning. Therefore, it is very important to stay at home until the minimum is evening. Otherwise, we may suffer from severe sunstroke or dehydration.
  • Protegeros del sol. If you are going to go to the beach to get dark, it is very important to cover your head and face with a hat or cap. Especially if we're going to be exposed to the sun for too long. To this we must also add a sunscreen with a factor of fifty or higher to avoid skin burns. In fact, many of these symptoms can later lead to serious skin cancer. So be very careful with this.
