Everyone knows that on the month of March, the time of the year when the temperature starts to soar and every kind of physical activity you do takes more effort and a little more struggle.
Though the temperatures finally risen and it seemed like an endless winter. This is the time when you can go outside to a beach and also into swimming. Apart from those outdoor activities, one thing we must need to focus on how you look at yourself during summer.
Here few of the suggestion that really helps you to maintain your health during summer:
- Change Your Facial Cleanser
Even summers are really sweaty and also more oil gets secreted by the skin to combat the hot and humid weather. Therefore, you need to cleanse your face twice a day and use a suitable gel or water-based foaming (if you have oily skin) or non-foaming (for dry and combination skin). Make sure your cleanser is alcohol-free and pH balanced. The right way to use the facial cleanser is to massage it gently on the face for a full one minute before washing it with lukewarm water.
- Eat healthy and light
Intake of light, small meals on a regular basis. Heavy meals with high carbohydrate and fat content generate a lot of heat in the body. Fresh fruits and vegetables with high water content, such as oranges, watermelon, tomatoes, and so on, should be prioritized. It is advisable to eat less oily and spicy food to avoid gastrological problems.
- Rest & Recovery
Your body needs time to recover after a strenuous workout. This entails getting adequate rest, being hydrated, and eating enough nutritious food! Get 7-9 hours of sleep and hydrate yourself well.
- Drink plenty of water
The excess of humidity and sweat can dehydrate your body that may resulting in unfavourable health outcomes such as fever and chills. Drink at least 2 to 3 litres of water per day to keep yourself hydrated.
During summer, everyone tend to sleep under a fan or in an air-conditioned room that result in further dry up your skin and throat and when you wake up it is quite natural to feel the dryness of the throat, eye irritations or skin dryness. Better start your morning with 2-3 glasses of water even. If required one can also use lime juice or cinnamon soaked in the water. Following this, a cooling drink is highly recommended like Ashguard juice with a few drops of lime and Amla juice. This is highly beneficial to health in keeping the blood glucose in check and also to regularize your weight. Ash gourd juice can be replaced by wheatgrass juice, moringa juice, celery and cucumber juice or even coconut water.
