Things that Make You Say AHHHHH this Summer
This summer indulge yourself all season with carefree living. Get comfortable, get out of the box and into the sand box! And as a result you will feel that AHHHHH that summer always whispers! From bathing suits that make you feel like a million bucks to taking a break from your routine, these are the things that make you say AHHHHH this summer!
Find a swimsuit that makes you feel confident.
Putting on a swimsuit for the first time this summer isn’t easy, to say the least! Most of us are not ready to jump into a bikini and hit the pool. When it comes to shopping for that “perfect” swimsuit, it can seem like a daunting challenge for any age. So first, you’ll want to think about your swimsuit requirements. While you want something flattering, stylish, and comfortable, you also want one to make you feel your best. That most of the time comes down to fit, and not all suits are made the same. Go for quality of materials and colors that boost your hair and skin. Look for options that are sporty, fun, and made for your body type. Because we all deserve to feel those things that make you say AHHHHH this Summer!
Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate!
Dehydration is another issue many have in the summer. Being thirsty is serious! So, if you are going to spend more time in the sun, you must drink water and stay hydrated. There is a plethora of products out there from Gatorade to Topo Chico sparkling mineral water, whatever your choice or preference is, carry it around with you and stay hydrated!
SPF is your new best friend.
Fun fact: It can take just 15 minutes for the sun to harm your skin, even though it can take up to 12 hours for a sunburn to appear.
No matter who you are, you should use a sunscreen with a high SPF rating to protect your skin from the sun and reduce your risk of skin cancer and premature aging. But for those who’ve been treated for cancer, wearing sunscreen with a high SPF rating is especially important, as some treatments can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
A high SPF number in your daily facial moisturizer is important for regular sun protection and for preventing wrinkles, and using a daily body lotion with a high SPF number is a great idea for extra protection. A high SPF number in your sunscreen for a day at the beach is non-negotiable.
Studies show that products with an SPF of 30 are best, and that higher SPFs don’t work any better. Make sure you’re applying enough sunscreen for it to be effective. People often apply only half of the recommended amount, which gives you only half of the product’s SPF protection. For example, if you apply only half as much SPF 30 sunscreen as you should, you’ll only get the protection of an SPF 15. And don’t forget your lips — there are many lip balms with high SPF ratings.

Take a Break From Your Routine
Taking breaks can improve both your productivity and creativity. In fact, not taking them can make you less productive. So since we are talking about living your best summer, that means finding ways to reduce your stress and anxiety that most all of us suffer from. Such stress inducing routines, involving all work and no play, can also have serious implications on your breast health as it increases stress, fatigue and depression.
Benefits of taking a break:
- Reduced stress level
- Enhanced focus and concentration
- Improve memory
Therefore, break out of your daily routine this summer, take a breather and replenish your mental, physical and spiritual resources.
Things you can do:
- Find new places to eat
- Discover new music
- Leave room for flexibility
- Take yoga breaks
- Go for a walk every morning
- Relaxation techniques like meditation and deep breathing always help
Getting outside your routine can definitely help you live your best Summer and will go a long way in helping you relax and reduce stress and anxiety. Therefore, do something new, mix up your routine, reshuffle your priorities and take out time to focus on yourself for your own mental and physical benefits.
In talking about all of this fun, remember that no matter where you are this summer, healthy oral care habits is an essential step in caring for the items that we use every day.
