August is Summer Sun Safety Month and it’s no guess as to why, August is usually the hottest month of the year. As temperatures and humidity begin to rise, our hydration levels lower to a point that our body begins to sweat to keep us cool. Many jobs require to be out in the heat all day, but also many activities. While most people are content to slap on some sunscreen and drink a few bottles of water, sun damage goes further than a sunburn and dry mouth. Those with disabilities need to be careful as they can be at a higher risk for heat stroke, dehydration, sunburn, heat rash, and heart complications. That’s why it’s important to outsmart the heat and drink plenty of water.
