We at Eastside Dermatology know how important it is to be healthy. We also know that most people want to look as good as they can, and even though summer is quickly coming to an end, there is still plenty of time to enjoy the summer season and use it to your advantage. Below are five beauty and health tips that you can use to enjoy the remaining days of summer.
Eat for summer – When you eat water rich foods like cantaloupe, watermelon, tomatoes, celery, and lemons the water in it actually helps keep your body cool when it is blazing hot out. It will also help you feel less bloated.
Beat the sun – Some foods can actually promote protection against UV rays. Foods like tomatoes, carrots, watermelons, and greens contain lycopene and beta-carotene, which are phytochemicals and those help the skin block UV rays. But never forget sunscreen.
Get Outside – By taking your exercises outdoors it helps boost your self-esteem and lift your spirits, especially if you are somewhere by waterfalls, river rapids, or waves. The negative ions that concentrate here are good for your mood and energy.
Sweat more – Try a natural deodorant that allows your body to be able to sweat more. Sweating helps get rid of toxins in your body, which will make you feel better. Sweating also helps get rid of dirt and toxins in your pores. Sweating also helps keep your body cool.
Swimming – Summertime is a great time to enjoy a swimming pool. Pools with chlorine help fight acne-causing bacteria. It lowers the walls of bacteria cells and purifies the water molecules in your skin. Swimming is also a great workout. Make sure that you are properly protected from the sun if you are swimming outside.
While we recommend some great ways to naturally improve your body, we know that there are also times when this can’t fix certain cosmetic imperfections.
