The Summer Days

Posted: April 27, 2010 in The summer days
Excessive exposure to the harmful rays of the sun can cause premature aging and sometimes lead to skin cancer too. To reduce the risk of sun damage use sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 15 [SPF stand for sun protection factor]. In addition, make use of accessories like a hat or a bandanna. Invest in a pair of quality sunglasses that provide protection from the UV rays of the sun.

If your skin feels dry and itchy during the summer days, it’s probably due to the side effects of tanning. Exfoliate to get rid of the dead skin cells in your legs and hands. Keep your skin moisturized at all times with a rich hydrating body cream.

Make sure you apply a bit of almond oil on your hair before swimming. The oil acts as a barrier between your hair and the elements. After a swim, immediately rinse off the chlorine residue or the salty water out of your hair. Condition your hair with a deep conditioner.

Get rid of all your nylon, synthetic and PVC clothes which are an absolute no-no during the scorching summer days. Invest in some cool cotton clothes, and choose from the numerous options of ‘airy clothes’ in the market that are designed for the hot days.

Finally, keep a check on your diet. Include lots of fresh fruits and green vegetables in your diet. Instead of three heavy meals, have five to six small meals a day. Drink lots of water as you tend to get dehydrated sooner than you imagine. Make sure you drink at least eighteen glasses of water a day.
