On a COLD day our thermoreceptors (found in both our skin and in our brain) monitor changes in the external temperature and our body begins to minimise the blood flow to our skin by constricting our arterioles (very small arteries). This is called vasoconstriction and results in our skin turning pale and losing less heat through radiation.
Our bodt also increases its rate of heat production (a product of cellular respiration) Our bodies can aslo gain heat through muscular activity, that is why we shiver when we are cold (shivering is the rapid involuntary contraction of our skeletal muscles)

On a HOT day our thermoreceptors monitor changes in the external temperature and our body begins to increase the blood flow to our skin, this results in us having a flushed red look. For this to happen, our arterioles dilate  (vasodilation) and our liver becomes less active.
Our bodies can also lose heat through radiation and sweating, the evaporation of your sweat causes a significant cooling effect. However if you undertake strenuous exercise under humid comditions your body will secrete sweat faster than it can be absorbed, and sweat collects on your skin. It is very dangerous to do this as it can cause heat stroke or heat exhaustion can occur.

On a hot day the body releases it's heat by sweating. This is where the heat is evaporating from the surface of the skin.
