Door handles - too hot to open

It was a nice sunny day up here in NH. The outside temp was about 65. A nice break from winter.
We were at a dog agility trial and the car was sitting in the sun. Dog mode was on and worked great.
I was happy, sitting inside playing Beach Buggy and Cat's Quest. The dog were resting after their first run.
The wife approached the car, it was about 11 AM.
She couldn't open the doors with the black door handles because they were quite hot from the sun.
The sun is getting more intense now that spring has arrive.
However, I would think that folks in the southern states much have experienced this issue many times.
What have you done to prevent or to cool off the door handles?
