What is heat stress?

Heat stress is what happens when your body cannot control its temperature properly and gets too hot. Your body may heat up through exercise or just from direct sunlight. When this happens, your body tries to get rid of heat through the skin by sweating. As sweat evaporates from your skin, it also takes heat away with it, leaving your body nice and cool.
