Since you might got damage by the heat while moving during the daytime in the Gerudo Desert, you should buy the Winterwing Butterfly from merchants such as Beedle at the Gerudo Canyon Stable before you go, and use it as a material to make heat-resistant medicine or food.

How To Make Chilly Elixir

Cold Darner x Monster Part

The higher the doses of Winterwing Butterfly or Cold Darner, the longer the duration of Elixir. However, note that the duration is not significantly doubled, so it is enough to prepare two or three Elixirs made in 1:1 quantities.

No Need To Deal With the Heat During the Night-Time

In the Gerudo Desert, the temperature drops at night, so you need to have the cold resistance. If you got the Warm Doublet in the early stage, it'll be fine to go to the Gerudo Desert at night. However, you also need to be aware of the Skull-type enemies appearing at night.
