Hey guys!! A breezy hi from this side. This summer season is just getting hotter than ever. A place with no air conditioner making us sweat within seconds. Even if you are just sitting you feel sweaty and lethargic. However, the summer season is not that bad as we get to enjoy chilled ice-creams, shakes, smoothies, get to do pool parties with friends and to play around beaches, etc. Strawberry milkshake has my heart, tell yours? Here are some useful habits that we all must follow to beat the heat during the summer season:
1. Punch the heat with seasonal fruits and veggies:
Apart from having junk food, have light and frequent meals. Junk food is only good for the tongue but can cause bad impacts on the stomach. Have seasonal fruits and veggies with more water content like watermelon, tomatoes, oranges, lemon juice, pineapple shakes, etc. Seasonal food items help in reducing pesticide intake and you eat fresh and natural. It’s no lie that the juicy and most colourful fruits and veggies are those that are in season.
2. Skincare is MUST!:
Temperature now days is too high to handle. You should always apply sunscreen to all exposed parts before stepping out in the harsh heated sun. Be it male or female everyone’s skin needs to be taken care of.
wash your face often
use aloe vera gel to soothe irritated skin, rashes, etc.
some good sunscreens are VLCC Anti Tan sunscreen lotion, Hello Bello (Walmart) mineral lotion.
