Some of the nation’s hottest country music stars will take to the stage when the Carolina Country Music Fest comes to Myrtle Beach in June.
If you’re among the tens of thousands of people planning to go, you may find yourself feeling the heat, too, and not only in a musical sense.
Combine the sunshine, warm temperatures, crowds and a bit of dancing, and you’ve got a recipe for sweaty skin, a parched mouth and less-than-pleasant body odor.
Dr. James Turek, a family medicine physician with Tidelands Health, the official health system of the festival, says the key to staying crisp is preparation.
“Being comfortable in the heat is all about thinking ahead,” says Dr. Turek, who practices at Tidelands Health Family Medicine at Garden City. “It’s important to thoughtfully consider what you’ll wear and bring to stay as cool as possible.”
