Summer so beautifully mesmerising and cheerful. An early morning filled with birds chirping and ending with an evening brushed into a colorful sunset! But what about the disadvantages of summer? Living on a tropical island is heavenly but with the high level of humidity rising it becomes frustrating to even step out from the house. Headaches, quick fatigue and dehydration take over your body. Drink plenty of water and replenish yourself with fresh tropical fruits and veggies. If you hate still water, make a detox for some taste. I will share more healthy recipes with drinks, fruits and veggies.
Fruits during summer are great source of natural antioxidants which help to protect your skin from sunlight damage, dehydration and pollution. Use sunscreen when going out from the house, drink plenty of water and always carry your H2O with you. We all hate having to hang around with an oily skin, face masks do not usually help to decrease the excess oil on your skin. The vitamins and antioxidants which fruits contain will supple and smooth your skin to perfection. So this summer, consume a rainbow of tropical fruits. You can also opt to create your own natural facemask with fresh fruits. Cucumber, lemon, orange, papaya, carrot, tomato, watermelon, pineapple and mango are amazing facial masks, cleanser and face scrub to use during summer. Pamper yourself with fruits and vegetables.
The beauty of summer are always reflecteed with the blossoming of plants and flowers! I love how bright the plants get. Do you strive to lose weight or reduce any carbs? All you can do is to drink plenty of water or detox water. Eat plenty of fruits and raw veggies as long as you can. I usually substitute snacks for some pieces of caarrots, cucumber and beetroot. Summer is also that wonderful time for evening long walks and swimming at the beach. Again protect your skin from the terrible heat and tanning of the sun during the day! Opt for evening swims.
Homemade fresh juice, aboslutely refreshing and filled with vitamins and fibers. Tip for you: never get rid of the fibers. I have seen many juice machines straining the fibers away which is very bad! Use your ordinary blender or mixer to crush the fruits and its fibers smoothly! Revitalize your body with fresh fruits. Best way is to turn them into juice incase you hate eating them or you are too busy! Add your favorite fruit depending on your preferred flavour and create your wonder!
