3 Accessories You Need for Good Summer Health
By Genevieve Cunningham
Accessories are key to looking good in the summer. We're ready to match our swimsuits to our cover-ups and our flip-flops to our beach bags. But accessories are so much more than appearance. In the rising summer temperatures, the right accessories can save your health! If you're interested in looking good and saving your health at the same time, take a look at these three accessories that you need right now.
Burned skin doesn't look good. But beyond that, it's also so bad for your skin's overall health. And it's bad for your body as a whole too! Instead of allowing the burn, make sure that you have plenty of sunscreen to slather on through the summer. This should be a summer staple, and you shouldn't leave home without it. Sunscreen can help protect your skin from burning, age spots, damage to the skin, and even skin cancer. Protect yourself by making this a constant accessory.
Many are really good at protecting their skin, but they forget about the eyes! The sun is also bad for the eyes, especially if we're in direct sunlight. Make sure you have a pair (or two or three!) of sunglasses that stay on your face during the day. This protects your eyes and the skin surrounding them. And if appearance is of concern, you can totally use this accessory to protect yourself and look sharp too.
A water bottle is essential to good summer health. It's not really the bottle, but the water inside that matters. Water is even more important in the heat in order to keep our bodies from dehydrating. Adequate water intake can prevent dry skin and lips, protect body functions, and even sharpen your focus. Find a water bottle that's easy to carry with you, and then keep it filled! The more water you drink, the better your health, and the more you'll protect yourself in the heat.
It's OK to want to look good in the summer. That's part of the fun! But pay attention to more than appearance. Pay attention to health! Pay attention to how you feel and take proactive measures to protect yourself. Use these accessories as a place to begin, and enjoy better health all summer long.
