CAIRO – 22 May 2018: Chairman of the Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) Ahmed Abdel Aal said on Monday that the country will witness a hot weather wave on Tuesday, registering 41 degrees Celsius.

He added during a television interview that the heat wave is coming from Sudan, noting that the country will witness a gradual decrease in temperature in the coming days.

In the same context, a dermatologist and former head of the National Research Center, Hany al-Nazer, told Egypt today that people should take good care of their health while fasting during the heat wave.

He offered some important tips such as:

1.Girls and ladies should avoid getting out in the sun while wearing make-up and perfumes, as they can leave marks on the skin in such hot weather.

2.Assure good ventilation for homes; turn on an air conditioner or a fan.

3.Turn down the lighting to avoid feeling hotter.

4.Mothers should replace non-cotton diapers for their children with cotton ones at home.

5.It is recommended to shower with glycerol soap to maintain the health of your skin
