    Always avoid wearing tight clothes in summer. And do avoid synthetic clothes and trousers as they didn’t allow good air circulation. Wear loose clothes and keep yourself free at home, but cover yourself while stepping out. Wear cotton clothes in summer and always prefer light color clothes as they don’t absorb heat.

    India has basically 5 main seasons starting from summer to rainy to winter , autumn and spring . Summer season starts from Mid April and lasts to June . Summer season is on the peak during mid May . But now a days due to increasing in global warming and depletion of ozone layer we started facing extreme hot weather conditions from April 1st weak only. Scorching sunlight , humidity, hot winds make us ill. So, it is very important to take safety measures while going out from the home otherwise we will face severe disease like loo or dehydration. Sometimes if you are working for long time in sunlight that you might face sun burn or skin cancer.

    Safety measures include:-

    The most important thing is to maintain our body water level. Being hydrated must be our priority. We should drink water time to time and we must carry our own water bottle when we are going outside.

    2. Protect your skin with sunscreen . This will reduce the effect of UV- rays on skin.
