Cotton Clothes

Wearing loose cotton clothing, especially during summer, has a lot of advantages. Avoid going out when it's sunny without wearing loosely-fitted cotton clothes that cover most of your skin, as it protects your skin from the harmful UV rays. The fabric allows good air circulation and absorbs sweat, which prevents dehydration and fungal infections.
