We often associate the need for trying to stay healthy with winter. But it is every bit as important to look after yourself in summer too. Here are some tips to do that…

1: Sunblock

This one is a no-brainer. The sun’s sharp rays can burn in just a few minutes, so protect your skin with sunblock anytime you are going to be outside.

2: Stay Hydrated

In summer we tend to sweat more, so your body can easily get dehydrated. Drink plenty of water to avoid headaches, sunstroke and increased hunger.

3: Watch The Smoothies

Smoothies are marketed as a healthy product. But not all smoothies are created equal. Some include sneaky unhealthy ingredients like ice cream and cream. Stick with fresh fruit and low fat milk options.

4: Exfoliate

The amount of dead skin cells on your body tends to increase in summer. Regular exfoliation can pave the way for new and healthy skin growth.

5: Keep Moving

The sunshine is the perfect excuse to get out and get moving. Just be mindful of the rising temperatures. Swimming can be a fantastic way to get your exercise in.
