Tips for an unforgettable summer
Tips for an unforgettable summer!
The most popular season is finally here! It’s time to enjoy the sun and spend more time outdoors. Whether you're going on vacation or not, it's important to take the right steps to keep the heat, sun rays, and excess cravings from messing with your weight and skin. Here are some helpful tips to have a happy and healthy summer.
- Strengthen your immune system
In summer is common to slow down, but you need to keep your focus and maintain an exercise routine, an eating plan, and consume vitamins regularly. With so many viruses out there, it's important to boost your immune system with a Health Pack that includes Echinacea, Vitamin C, and Zinc. It is proven that they are essential to support the immune system. Together, they work as a complete antiviral when fighting colds and other viruses. (1)
- Hydrate your body inside out
Studies recommend a daily water intake of 3.7 liters for adult men and 2.7 liters for adult women, although physical exercise and heat can greatly increase daily fluid needs, as can long hours on the beach or pool (2). Your skin also needs proper care. That's why we recommend the PIEL ETERNA Moisturizing Face Cream, which includes antioxidant ingredients and peptides to stimulate collagen and achieve a firm complexion without expression lines caused by sun exposure.
- Do not forget sunscreen
Everyone wants to show off an amazing tan in summer, but no one thinks about the hours exposed to damaging UV rays that cause sunburns, which can even ruin a vacation. Dermatologists recommend using sunscreen with a high concentration of protection. For example, a sunscreen with SPF 50 means that your skin will take 50 times longer to burn than if you were not wearing anything (3). Use it daily and every time you are going outdoors. You can also wear clothing made of protective fabrics and a hat to cover the most sensitive areas of the face and neck.
- Protect your eyes
Sunglasses are an incredible way to style any summer outfit, but most importantly, they can protect your eyes from the damage caused by UV rays. You should also protect the eye contour area as it is sensitive and can easily develop wrinkles. We recommend using the PIEL ETERNA Revitalizing Eye Cream, which is ideal for maintaining a youthful, restful look as it has a calming effect and helps reduce the appearance of dark circles while deeply hydrating the skin and smoothing fine lines.
- Eat seasonal foods
To maintain your health and weight, make sure you consume foods that help you stay hydrated and provide nutrients, such as watermelon, oranges, celery, cucumber, melon, apple, and strawberries. You can consume them while you enjoy a sunny day or add them to your whey protein shake, which contains 25 grams of protein, and helps you maintain that feeling of satiety for longer.
- Plan ahead
Leaving everything for the last minute will make you spend more money than you thought, and you won’t be able to take advantage of promotions or discounts. Look for different options of activities, so you can enjoy them with your family, whether you go to the beach, mountains, or have a picnic at a park. Making a list of what you need and organizing yourself according to your budget will help make any activity successful.
Try to be focused on the moment to fully enjoy your summer. It’s the perfect time to create unforgettable moments with your children, partner, and friends. If you decide to spend it on your own, appreciate everything around you. Feeling grateful and happy will always make life more pleasant.
