Wear light-colored clothes, which absorb heat slower and dissipate heat faster than dark-colored ones.

Other Tips: Pay attention to water and food hygiene. When going on an outing, don't sit directly on cool and wet places. When you are going for a picnic, pay great attention to the wind direction. Put out the fire when you intend to leave for fear of causing a fire. If you have allergy history, try to avoid places with flowers or you need to take in Chlorpheniramine maleate. Prepare some other commonly used medicines.
When the sunlight is strong, do not forget to wear sun-blocking cream, sunglasses and hat. Always bring an umbrella to cope with unexpected rains.
