5 Tips to Help Kick-start Your Summer Self

El verano is your time to shine, so follow these 5 tips for kick-starting your summer swag!

If the winter months took a toll on you, it’s time to get back into your warm weather groove! You’ll definitely want to nourish your body, both inside and out, so here are a few helpful tips to ensure you’re ready to take on the summer.

1. Switch up Your Routine
It’s difficult to get motivated to work out during the winter months, but warmer weather means you can easily switch up your fitness routine. Swap indoor workouts for outdoor walks or runs, or head to a nearby park to do your daily workouts al fresco. Use the season to explore new outdoor fitness activities like rowing, paddle boarding, aqua cycling and other water-based exercise classes. Stay fresh all day and lock away odor with Secret Outlast Deodorant before getting your sweat on!

Laundry Tip: To keep your activewear in tip-top shape, try using Tide Plus Febreze Freshness Laundry Detergent.

2. Embrace In-season Snacks
Before (and after) you exercise, grab some in-season snacks before heading out the door. Cherries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and watermelon are packed with antioxidants and vitamins.

3. Hydrate with Intention
Sounds simple, but many fall ill to dehydration during the summer months. It’s recommended to drink eight 8-ounce glasses (2 liters, or a half gallon) per day. Not only will you feel good, your skin, nails and hair will benefit from it, too. Not a fan of plain ol’ water? Check out these natural ways to infuse your water with flavor!

4. Soak up the Vitamin D
It’s not uncommon for people to emerge from winter with low amounts of vitamin D. Spend time outdoors in the sun, but be sure to protect your skin with a daily moisturizer-meets-sunscreen, such as Olay SPF 15 All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen, while soaking up the rays.

5. Affirm Your Beauty Daily
Self-love is vital to embodying and accepting who you are. No matter the season, celebrate your beauty, attributes and gifts. Who cares if others don’t find your curves or curls beautiful? You do, and that’s all that matters.

Refresh Tip: Want to keep your hair oil-free post-exercise? Grab your favorite scent of Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo (we love Grapefruit & Mosa Mint) for lightweight body and a boost of freshness.
