Warm breezes and sunny skies is what summer is all about! While we all love spending time outdoors in this wonderful weather, we must always remember to protect our bodies as well as our skin during the summer months.
Be sure to stay hydrated when enjoying summertime activities outside. By the time you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrated. Drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water each day (and more when you’re especially active in warmer weather) will ensure that your body gets the water it needs to function properly.
Wear a hat and sunglasses. Since everyone knows that sun exposure causes skin damage such as wrinkles, dry blotchy skin and various forms of skin cancer, it’s very important that you wear protective covering and to limit your time outdoors.
Use sunscreen daily. Using a high SPF sunscreen every time you are outdoors will protect your skin during times of prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful rays and will help keep it looking healthier longer.
