If you are going outside your home, it is advisable to carry your own filtered water or drink from a safe and hygienic place.
Diet healthy and light

Prefer taking vegetables and fruits as they maintain the temperature of the body and are easy to digest. Choose fruits that have high water content for instance Watermelon, Mango, tomatoes, etc.
Avoid going outside unless it is necessary, summers in India get harsh, and stepping outside can cause you several problems, make sure you complete your work in the cooler part of the day that is either before 11’O clock or after the evening, stepping outside in mid-noon should be a big no.
In summer, you should always wear sunscreen, so choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 or more, and apply it every time you leave your house. It is important to apply sunscreen during summer because our skin is exposed to harmful ultraviolet rays, which can lead to serious health problems.
