What to do when the temperature in hits 100 degrees?
Reach for cover and do these five things:
1. Wear light-colored, loose fitting clothes and limit strenuous outdoor activities.
2. Slather on the sunscreen. The highest rating is generally best but minimum SPF35.
3. Wear a floppy hat.
4. Drink lots of water. Add a twist of lemon or lime for flavor.
5. Carry a hand or mini electrical fan – perfect for times when you have to wait on a hot platform for the subway.
