Expect some scorching days in Cape Town over the next few weeks. 🌞🥵

As a result, please:

🚰Hydrate regularly.
🧴 Don’t forget to slather on sunscreen with a high SPF and sport a stylish wide-brimmed hat for extra protection against those UV rays.
🌳 When outdoors, try to seek shade whenever possible. This is especially important during the hottest parts of the day, usually between 10 am and 4 pm.

How do you like to cool down on a hot summer’s day?
