Protect yourself from the heat:  1) Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate – this is the most important thing to do.  Water is the best but juices and fresh fruit are also good.   2) Be an early bird or a night owl – sun does most of its damage from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. so schedule outdoor activities early or late.

Protect your eyes from the sun: 1) wear sunglasses that are 100% UV protection.  2) Don’t stare at the sun.  3) Wear a hat with a broad brim. 4) Check your medication labels.  Many can enhance sun damage.  5) Keep your sunglasses on in your car.
