If you want to avoid catching a viral infection such as a cold, flu or tummy bug, one of the things health experts recommend is to wash your hands frequently.
We may not get wonderful summers year in year out here in the UK, but even our warmer weather can cause problems where personal hygiene is concerned. That’s because we sweat in response to high temperatures – it’s the body’s natural cooling mechanism.
The arrival of barbecue season is something most of us look forward to, especially here in the UK. This country is, after all, the leading barbecue nation in Europe (according to the organisers of National BBQ Week, we hosted more than 130 million barbecues in 2015, with British families firing up the barbie an average of nine times each summer).
Sweating is your body’s way of controlling its temperature, so it’s natural to perspire when you’re hot.
