Age Cymru is today reminding older people about how to stay cool during hot weather but the tips will suit anyone feeling parched.
- Try and plan your day in a way that allows you to stay out of the heat in the hottest part of the day (11am – 3pm)
- If you go out stay in the shade, wear a hat and light loose fitting clothes which are preferably cotton
- If you are outside for some time, take plenty of fresh drinking water with you as well as a high factor suncream/block (at least factor 15)
- Take cool showers or baths and splash yourself several times a day with cold water, particularly your face and the back of your neck
- Drink regularly even if you do not feel thirsty - water/fruit juice is best and try to avoid alcohol
- Try to eat more cold food, particularly salads and fruit, which contain water
- Close the curtains in rooms that get a lot of sun
- Open windows when the temperature inside rises, and at night for ventilation
- If you are worried about security, at least open windows on the first floor and above
