Summer Alert- Top 5 Essentials

Being prepared is the wisest thing you can do this summer. Summer essentials are simple, but is extremely important. They protect you from all the harm that only high temperatures can bring. So stay tuned….

Sunglasses

They can be said as a healthy fashion accessory. Sunglasses protect the eyes from ultraviolet rays and blue light. When you wear sunglasses, you can be rest assured that your eyes will be protected from scary diseases such as photokeratitis, snow blindness, cataracts and various forms of eye cancer. Health experts advise you to wear sunglasses that filter out 99-100% of UVA and UVB light.

Sunscreen

It is in the form of lotion, spray or gel and protects the skin from sunburn and skin cancer. Sunscreens with a sun protecting factor of 15 or higher do a good job of protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays. Never ever step out of your house without wearing sunscreen. Keep this as your summer mantra.


Clothing



It’s the first line of defense against the harmful rays of the sun. It is always safe to wear high necked collars, full sleeved shirt and full pants, when you venture out in the sun. Your clothes block out much of the harmful radiation. The more skin you cover the better it is for your health and wellness.

Hats

They work miracles to protect your head from the blazing heat. Have you ever heard of people gone insane when not wearing a hat? I haven’t. Head Wear Association recommends wide brimmed, curve shaped hats with close weave fabric or tightly woven straw. Wear some nice hats to make your summer more colorful. An umbrella can also be a good summer aid.

Water

Proper hydration is a must for summer. Water carries the heat away from your internal organs and prevents heat stroke. Drink lots of water. You can also include tea, coffee, milk, fruit juices, soups and vegetable juices to stay hydrated. During exercise it is good to supplement sports drink along with water.

Concluding thoughts
So as you enter into this summer season, be sure to keep all the essentials on high alert. Stay safe and be safe.

Take care,
