Beat the Summer Heat
Sunburns, dehydration, and heat exhaustion… oh my! Gotta love the sun, but a beautiful outdoor day can turn red quickly if you are not prepared for the heat. Stay cool this summer with a little planning before you head outside.
Bring sun protection! Sunscreen, protective clothing or an umbrella are great options to help you escape the sun’s harmful rays. Not sure which SPF to choose? When choosing a sunscreen, multiply the amount of time it takes to burn without sunscreen by the sunscreen’s SPF. This number equals the maximum amount of sun time before you need to cover up, find shade, or reapply. If you opt to cover up, there are a lot of stylish options out there! From lightweight, SPF clothing to sunglasses and hats, there is something for everyone. To keep the sun off you face and out of your eyes, check out Sauce Headwear’s new Saucy and Flight Visors. Perfect for whatever outdoor activity has you on the move this summer!
Stay hydrated! Dehydration can lead to serious health consequences, and in the midst of all the summer fun, it’s easy to go hours without stopping for a drink. By then it’s too late! Fortunately there are lots of ways to keep the thirst at bay. Try hydration packs such as Camelbak so that you always have water on you…literally. Infusing water with lemon, cucumber, berries, and mint can make a tall glass of water more appealing and make you more likely to drink up!
The heat doesn’t stand a chance! Go make the most of your summer!
