Summer is almost here and that means for many of us, outdoor plans, travel and exposure to changes in temperature. However, we still have time to prepare our body for it.
We share some tips to help you prepare your body.
Skin: during this time of year our skin is more exposed to the sun so preparing it is essential. A few things that can help:
- Dry brushing: a very effective technique used to exfoliate our skin. It is done on dry skin rubbing a brush with coarse, natural-fiber bristles in a particular pattern. The idea is that the coarse fibers will help to remove dead skin and improve the skin’s ability to eliminate toxins through the pores. This technique has its origins in traditional Indian medicine. It is important to remember that the skin must be completely clean, without any type of creams or products, and dry.
- Body oils: hydration is essential to keep our skin healthy and beautiful. Some body oils specialize in hydrating, others in softening, and others in protecting. But, in general, they all fulfill those basic functions. In summer, our skin becomes much more dehydrated than during the rest of the year, so using body oils will help prevent it. Wisdom Cares Stardust Body Oil nourishes the skin while giving it a golden glow. These types of products are perfect to use on a beach or pool day.
Body: it is important to prepare our body from the inside as well. Both to tone our muscles, and to have energy to face long summer plans, it is important to start taking care of ourselves inside and out.
- Drink a lot of water: no one can question the vitality of water for our body. But it is always important to remind everyone. It is advisable to drink at least 2 liters of water a day. This will help you stay hydrated, keep a healthy looking skin and feel more energised.
