Eat spicy food
It sounds counter-intuitive, but capsaicin, a chilli pepper extract, helps release sweat, which helps the body cool down faster.

Drink lemon water
Adding some lemon slices and a few mint leaves to your water makes for a refreshing drink when braving the sun.

Cover your head
One of the best ways to avoid heatstroke is to cover your head, with a cap or a muslin cloth to prevent direct contact between the scalp and the sun's rays.

Wear light-coloured clothes
It's a known scientific fact that darker colours attract more heat, while lighter colours repel it. Opt for lighter colours like pastels, including white, when stepping out.

Stay hydrated
One basic but often overlooked fact is to keep yourself hydrated, and complete your target of at least two litres of water a day. Any less you get dehydrated, any more and you dilute the salts in your body.

Take cold showers
