With health it is better to respect some guidelines.

As we always emphasize, the pillars of good health involve: varied diet, physical activity & nbsp; and rest. & nbsp; In this time we can add hydration, care in sun exposure and other tips that & nbsp; They will be very useful.

If you are outdoors, protect yourself from the sun

Always wear comfortable, wide and breathable clothing, preferably of natural fabrics. The effects of heat are mainly reported in the elderly and in children. Remember that direct exposure to the sun is not recommended for children under 2 years of age.

Eat the food as soon as possible

Between its preparation and its consumption, it should not be too long, nor should it ever be kept at room temperature. In the case of processed foods taken from cold and frozen gondolas, they should never be more than 2 hours at room temperature and if consumption is immediate, much better.

Watch the insects

Outdoors it is always better to use repellents to avoid bites. But it is also very important to avoid sources of propagation, especially mosquitoes since they are the main transmitters of diseases. That's why I kept empty containers and watched the accumulation of water in the yard.

Use sunscreen lenses

Dark lenses protect the eyes from the sun, however if they do not have good protection against UVA and UVB rays, it is better not to use them. Therefore, we recommend that you go to an optician so they can give you the best recommendation and avoid buying your glasses in kiosks or non-specialized stores.

Stay hydrated

The best way to hydrate is to drink water. Soft drinks, processed juices or alcoholic beverages are best avoided. The recommendation is to drink between 1.5 and 2.5 liters of water a day and do it even if you are not thirsty.

If you take medication, avoid the sun

The recommendation is that before sun exposure consult with your doctor the chances that it may cause you or a side effect or allergy due to how the components of the drug behave under this radiation.

Dress with light colors

Preferably we always recommend light clothes from fabrics such as cotton or linen, and light colors. Since dark colors attract the sun and some tissues in particular can cause allergies or eczema, which will be aggravated by heat. This is very important especially for the little ones.

I chose light meals

Both at home and wherever you go, I chose light meals with salads, fruits and vegetables. Avoid excessively hot meals and precooked dishes or those that contain a lot of fat.

Avoid drinking alcohol on the beach or pool

Mainly because it favors dehydration; in addition to the risk of swimming or practicing water sports under its effects.

Beware of digestion in water

The digestion cuts are not a myth. If you recently ate copiously, wait a couple of hours to get in the water. If you notice that the water is very cold you should get used to the body getting wet little by little and, once inside, if you have trouble breathing, you should leave immediately.

If you are going to sunbathe, be cautious

Always with solar protection not less than SPF of 30, and control it is broad spectrum, reliable brand and has not expired. Always take the sun progressively and with caution. It starts with sessions of 15 to 20 minutes and gradually increases, never exceeding exposures of two hours in a row.

You can prepare yourself previously consuming products that collaborate to take color and protect your skin. Natufarma recommends Carotenos, Natubrown and Geneo Solar within its line of body aesthetics.
