Heat Exhaustion, injury, illness and worse things can happen if you don not take care of yourself once in a while. There are things you can do top stay up on top of your game having the best time this summer and it's all pretty easy to do.
First and foremost..
Some jokingly crack a beer and say to stay hydrated, but beer is the worst for doing that. Always keep a healthy amount of actual water around to quench your thirst. Sports drinks and sodas only go so far in hydration, so for safety sake, have water around.
Skin Care and Sunburns
Having proper sunscreen and applying it often will not only help with sunburns, but it will help in keeping your body tip top by not getting sunburns. Sitting in the sun too long without sunscreen will drain the body of energy and water as well as be very uncomfortable for the first 48 hours after the sun exposure occurs. Adding that up with drinking can spell disaster.

Everyone should have fun this summer, just take care of yourself and don't collapse while doing it.
