Summer is loved for holidays, vacation time which means family time and enjoyment. But the bad part is, it’s heat and humidity. Summer comes with a long list of problems too – skin, hair, health problems.
Because of excess heat, there are high chances of heavy sweating, dizziness, headache, nausea, muscle cramps, sunburn, or in the worst case sunstroke. It also decreases the appetite to eat more.
