The sun is out, and the temperature is rising. It’s a great time to get outside and do all the things that the only summer can provide. It’s also a good idea to think about how your skin can stay healthy this summer. Here are a few tips for staying healthy during the summer:
Stay hydrated in the heat.
Don’t forget sun protection.
Enjoy the sun without feeling the burn. UVB rays from the sun are the primary cause of those nasty sunburns, and prolonged exposure can severely damage and age your skin. But using a sunscreen with at least SPF 15 will protect your skin from 93% of UVB rays.
Get your fill of summer activities outside.
What we love about summer is that there’s so much you can do in the warm, sunny weather. Take advantage of the season and make time for some swimming, kayaking, hiking and beach days. It’s an excellent opportunity to get your body moving and work up a sweat.
Move your workouts outdoors.
Speaking of working up a sweat, summer is also an excellent opportunity to move your existing workout routine outdoors. Turn the treadmill off and take your run to a trail or ditch the yoga mats and move your routine to the park. Getting some fresh air will give you a fresh take on your weekly workouts. Remember to cleanse your face after a workout with Purifying Grapefruit Cleanser.
Take some time off during the summer.
It’s the best time of the year to go on that family camping trip you’ve been waiting for, or to conquer that strenuous hike with the view you’ve been dying to see. Take a break from the office, put away your phone, and enjoy some time with your family and friends.
Enjoy some seasonal fruit.
Apricots, plums, peaches, cherries, blackberries, strawberries, and other fruits are all in season during the summer. All these options make getting your vitamins and antioxidants a lot easier. Try a new smoothie mix or salad recipe with some of the fruits only summer has to offer. Banana Pineapple Enzyme Mask the best alternative for your face.
Get outside, soak up some sunshine, and have a healthy summer!
