Here is my best explanation:

'do this' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't tell whether it can be defined by this definition.

'concerned about heat and dry? frantically' is the wordplay.
'concerned about' becomes 're' (regarding).
'and' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other) (I've seen this in other clues).
'frantically' is an anagram indicator.
'heat' put after 'dry' is 'dryheat'.
'dryheat' is an anagram of 'hydrate'.
're'+'hydrate'='REHYDRATE'
