To ensure that your summer is a memorable one and not one spent dealing with problems, it is necessary to take care of your health and beauty according to this season.
Always apply sunscreen while going out and choose the right protection level or SPF on the basis of your exposure to the sun. It is absolutely essential that your sunscreen provides protection against both UVA and UVB rays. If you apply make-up see to it that your make-up provides you sun protection.
Use oil-free products on your face. This is especially important for people having oily skin. Summer increases sweating and oil production on the face. The last thing you need is more oil and mixing it with pollutants to clog your pores.
Keep your body hydrated:
Drinking sufficient water on summer days is very important. High heat and excessive sweating leave the body dehydrated. But sometimes just drinking water is not enough because through sweat essential minerals are also lost. Drinking tender coconut water is a great way to stay hydrated as well as replenish the lost minerals.
Keep on exercising:
Don’t stop exercising just because the temperature is rising. It is essential to get your exercising. Just change your exercising place from outdoors to indoors. Swimming is a great way of staying fit as well as beating the heat. Above all keep yourself busy with your hobbies or learning new courses. This could help you feel energized internally.
Dressing for summer
You can feel good and fresh all the time during the hot summer days by wearing light-colored clothing. Choose cotton and loose-fitting clothes over synthetic and tight clothes. Cotton evaporates your sweat easily making you feel fresh and cool. Remember, comfort is the key to a great personal style.
Eat nutritious and nonfatty food. Avoid eating hot, spicy and excessively salty food. You should eat lighter meals during the summer. It is necessary to keep on drinking water from time to time. If you drink alcohol, keep in mind that alcohol is a dehydrating agent so replenish with water or fruit juices. Add fruits having high water content like watermelon, grapefruit, peach, and pineapple to your diet. Avoid artificial and sugary fruit juices. You can drink lemon juice, thin buttermilk, and coconut water instead.
Keep yourself healthy!
