Hot, sunny days can be totally blissful, but this summer (and its multitude of heatwaves) feels a little too much for a lot of us.

High temperatures are all well and good if you’re splashing in the sea or chilling out by the pool (we can dream, can’t we), but if you’re traveling about or stuck at work, the heat can be seriously bothersome, bordering on a health hazard.
