Natural Hydration Tips for the Summer

Natural Hydration Tips for the Summer

Planning for a summer escapade? Excited for island hopping, snorkeling, scuba diving and beach volleyball? Before anything else, make sure that you are physically equipped for the heat of the sun, or else, you’ll end up mumbling at the corner wishing that summer was not part of the four seasons.

While plunging into the deep blue sea is probably the best way to celebrate summer, it still requires you to hydrate your body inside and out. Though the human body contains 70 to 75 percent of water, it still needs to be replaced every now and then.
Apart from drinking more than eight glasses of water a day, to prevent thirst, there are other natural hydration guidelines you may follow while at the beach villa or even at home, to keep you in control while enjoying the heat of summer.


Shiny Crowning Glory
Your hair catches the UV rays of the sun directly, as it draws attention first, so you must make sure that you have the best weapon, without having to spend much.
Use an entire egg to condition a normal hair, egg whites only for oily hair, or egg yolks only for dry and brittle hair. Apply ½ cup of it to your clean, damp hair then massage it to your scalp. You may add more eggs if you have a long hair. Leave on for 20 minutes then rinse well with cool water and shampoo.
Repeat the process at least once or twice a week, to have a healthy, shiny and hydrated crowning glory that will surely turn heads toward your direction!


Fabulous Face
Want to have a face that would launch a thousand ships on the dock? Never let your beauty be damaged by the sun rays.  
Go to your kitchen and find the oatmeal you used to eat for dinner. Just mix together two tablespoons of oats with a tablespoon of honey and a dash of water. Warm up the mixture then rub it into your skin. Wash it off right away if you prefer to use it as an exfoliator, or leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes as a soothing, hydrating mask, then rinse well. Use moisturizer to keep that fascinating face hydrated all day.

Luscious Lips

Your lips must always be ready for that summer love story. Always use your lip balm to prevent having cracked and dry lips.
But if you forgot to bring your lip balm or you ran out of stock, you may combine three tablespoons of petroleum jelly with one teaspoon of honey. Warm the mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds until melted, then let it cool before using.
Your gorgeous body would definitely be accentuated by those sexy lips, ready for that one romantic sunset near the beach!

Fabulous Figure
To guarantee that your inner body is in good shape, eat more fruits. It will add more water, vitamins and minerals to that summer body. Replace one of your current daily snacks with a piece of fresh fruit and your skin will look and feel a lot better.

Now that you’re fully ready for the heat of the summer, don’t forget to exercise and stretch your body before a busy day at the beach. It would prepare you for the activities waiting for the very exciting escapade. Wear your Pure Comfort Classic Capri and do your yoga using this stylish, comfortable and sustainable organic bamboo clothing by Green Apple, and you’ll definitely have a summer like never before.

What’s The Rush?

The benefits of Savasana…..

 

I get it.  You are a Type A, on-the-go, two-page to-do list super-human kind of student.  But give yourself a break and really explore the benefits of your practice; give yourself the gift of Savasana.  As a yoga teacher in Los Angeles it’s always a challenge to communicate to my students the benefits of savasana.  A lot of people consider Savasana a dispensable little nap after the physical exertion of their practice.  I’ve seen more and more students leaving before Savasana and complaining to me that they just don’t have the time.  But you can make the time, even if you have to leave early
