5 Things To Do When The Temperature Hits 100 Degrees

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.

The warm weather doesn’t stick around very long so enjoy it as much as you can.
