As summer approaches and we prepare for sweltering heat, here are some things to NOT do to be the best version of yourself.
1. Do Not Go to Sporting Events
Coronavirus experts have noted that they will not encourage others not to attend events with large crowds. Especially sporting events! The risk of contracting the virus is higher in such environments for several reasons. When people cheer, they excrete more saliva and often do so without masks, creating a huge risk.
Moreover, sitting or even standing in close quarters can be risky in large crowded areas. Enjoy sports but within your own gardens or in extremely controlled environments.
2. Do Not Have Ice-Cream (a lot)!
We know ice-cream has become synonymized with summers, but health experts actually discourage people from having them. They contain a huge amount of fats and carbs, which heat the body while digesting. In a country like Pakistan, during power cuts, store-bought ice creams can develop bacteria too. Only consumer home-made icecream.
Moreover, only consume ice-cream when your body temperature is normal. Consuming ice cream after being exposed to sunlight may result in a sore throat and fever.
3. Say No To Deep-Fried Food!
Fried food makes the skin oiler during humid days, giving rise to skin problems like acne and disturbs the digestive system. Steer clear of pakoras!
4. Do Not Overdose on Mangoes
Mangoes are rich in natural sugar, but an excess of it can cause skin infections. Moreover, they can increase body heat and give rise to several unpleasant symptoms such as diarrhea, upset stomach, headaches, etc.
5. Do Not Drink Less Water
The major problems that can occur in summer do so due to the lack of water intake. This can lead to dehydration which is a common problem in summer for many. It is better that you drink a healthy amount of water every day, which is at least 2 to 3 liters.
6. Do Not Forget to Apply Sunscreen
The summer season is particularly harsh for the skin and more so now because of our ozone layer depleting. One must apply sunscreen to keep away from the sun’s strong rays and to avoid the possibility of sunburn! Make sure to pick a sunscreen that matches the temperatures of your area.
For Pakistanis, SPF 50++ are recommended to ensure your skin is kept safe.
