: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'felt air temperature', gauges the sensation of temperature factoring in the air's moisture content. An individual's temperature experience can be influenced by extra factors, including metabolic differences, activity levels, and clothing. Always consider that direct sunlight exposure might heighten the heat's effects, pushing the heat index up by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are extremely vital to babies and toddlers. Young ones often underestimate the need for rest and rehydration. Thirst appears late in dehydration - hence, it is important to keep hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
The human body cools itself through perspiration, as excessive warmth is removed from the body through sweat evaporation. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. Heat-related disorders may develop if heat gain in the body overshadows its cooling capacity, leading to elevated temperatures.

Execute every important safeguard, as unprotected skin and eyes could burn within moments. Attempt to stay under shade and limit exposure to the Sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV radiation is at its peak. Remember, devices such as parasols or canopies might not provide complete sun protection. On days when the sun blazes, arm yourself with sunglasses that block UVA and UVB radiation. A sunscreen boasting a minimum SPF of 30 should be generously applied and reapplied even on cloudy days, post swim or outdoor exercise. Be vigilant! The Sun's UV rays get a boost from sand and water reflections.
