Stay Safe in the Summer Sun

While the weather in Gilbert, AZ is perfect most of the year, summers mean long, hot days and the threat of heat stroke and sunburn if you’re not careful. We have the tips you need to stay safe, cool, and hydrated this summer. Read on to learn more.


Summer Skin


Protecting your skin during the summer should be a priority. Remember to wear sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun, and wear a hat and sunglasses outdoors. Limit the time you spend soaking up the sun. A little vitamin D is good, but too much time out in the sun can lead to sunburn, irritation, and (at the very worst) skin cancer. Stay safe this summer.




It’s always important to stay hydrated, but especially during the summer. Keep a water bottle nearby and drink whenever you feel thirsty. WebMD recommends getting your water from foods and drinks like hamburger, chicken breasts, soda, Jell-O, smoothies, and watermelon, as well. You can find their article on ways to stay hydrated here.
