: The heat index, also known as 'feels like', 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', or 'real feel', is a measure of how hot it feels when the actual air humidity is factored in. This effect is subjective, depending on the activity and individual's heat perception influenced by various reasons (clothing, metabolic differences, wind). Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.

Take special precautions, as unprotected skin can be damaged and can burn quickly. The Sun's UV radiation is most powerful between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. To the extent possible, limit exposure to the direct sun during these hours. On bright days sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays should be worn. A hat with a wide brim is extremely helpful, as it can prevent roughly 50% of UV radiation from reaching the eyes. Even on cloudy days, a sunscreen with a minimum 30 sun protection factor should be generously applied and frequently re-applied, including after every swim or outdoor exercise. Beware! The strength of the UV rays is significantly increased by the reflection of the water and sand.
