Wear Protective Clothing When Under Broad Daylight

If you enjoy outdoor activities, such as gardening or walking, make sure to wear the proper clothing and protective gear. Wear a hat, a scarf, a pair of sunglasses, and apply sunblock to protect yourself from the heat and harmful UV rays of the sun. The older we get, the more susceptible our skin is to skin cancer.

Don't stay out for too long to avoid headaches or heat strokes. Drink even more water than usual to replenish your body fluids. Also, consider going out early in the morning or during dusk, when it isn’t too hot outside.
