Ahh the simple joys of summer! Glimpse the bright sun shining down upon you. Feel the warm breeze as it sweeps across your face. Smell the freshly cut grass and smile!
The summer season is upon us and we are ready for some yoga fun in the sun. Yet, too much time outside can be rather harmful to our bodies. Remember to stay protected while you enjoy the great outdoors. Whether it’s a backyard party or a yoga festival. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with a few tips to stay safe, hydrated and naturally protected all summer long!
Safeguard Your Skin
The sun emits ultraviolet sun rays that are the main cause of the sun’s damaging effects on our skin, the largest organ in our body. In order to avoid skin damage and sunburn, apply a natural and organic sunscreen directly to your skin every few hours. Wear a sun hat to shade your face and cover your shoulders. Take frequent breaks from the direct sunlight to avoid overexposure.
Keep Bugs at Bay
Avoid bug bites and repel those pesky creatures from attacking your skin. Elect for a DEET-Free insect repellant like Buzz Away Extreme, an eco-friendly alternative bug spray that is effective at keeping bugs away for hours.
Made from natural plant oils, Buzz Away Extreme successfully repels mosquitoes for up to 4 hours. In a 2003 study conducted in southern Ontario, Buzz Away was 92% effective after 3 hours of use and 250% more effective than other natural repellants. Apply Buzz Away with the easy-to-use spray bottle or convenient towelettes every 4 hours and sing “Shoo Fly Don’t Bother Me” to make it more fun for the whole family!
Our bodies are 80% water and we lose water with sweat in the summer heat. Increase your H2O intake so you drink at least half of your body weight in ounces of water each day. Always carry a reusable water bottle with you and refill as needed to keep you hydrated all summer long.
