How to be Summer Diets Free

May 29th, 2012

People with excess weight are constantly seeking ways to feel comfortable, especially during summer months to enjoy swimming. As a result, a number of blogs have come up that offer tips on weight loss diets for summer. These blogs state that the intake of iced drinks must be increased.

Similarly, some blogs hold the view that missing a meal during summer is a better option to stay fit. In reality, all these are mere myths. Though the intake of fluids has to be increased to make up the loss of dehydration during summer, but increasing intake of iced drinks hampers the digestive process which in turn builds up fat. Similarly, missing a meal slows down the body metabolism resulting in accumulation of fats.

There is no need for special summer diets ; even people with weight can feel better and enjoy swimming. Following are some of the useful tips to feel comfortable with your weight in swimsuits.

Learn to respect yourself. Remember external validation doesn’t bring permanent happiness. So, develop confidence on the foundation of self respect.

Evaluate your body figure while shopping for a suitable swimsuit. Depending upon your body shape and size, buy two swimming suits, and try the bigger size suit. This will help you to determine whether a baggy suit looks fine or the fitter one.

Realize the fact that no one is 100 percent perfect. Everyone is dissatisfied with some parts of his body. Once you realize this, you will feel confident and dive deep in to the water as you want.

Don’t pay attention to what others feel and say when you are in a swimsuit with your weight. Such feelings will only make you feel sad and dejected. Instead, feel happy and contented with what you are.

Remove doubts about yourself and develop confidence internally. Wear the swimsuit of your choice that suits your body and enjoy swimming. All these things will keep you happy, comfortable with your weight even in a swimsuit.

How to Suntan Safely ;)

May 25th, 2012

Getting a nice sun tan is something many people seek when the summer comes.
However, it is important to sunbathe safely to avoid sunburn or other skin conditions including skin cancer. Sun cream is a good way to protect your skin while exposed to the sun.

There are many different types of sun cream. To provide a satisfying protection, you should buy sun cream with at least a 15 Sun Protection Factor (SPF) and with an adequate level of UV ray protection.
No sun cream provides 100% protection from sunburn, however it is essential for people with a lighter skin tone to wear higher SPF creams for better protection.
Sun cream must be applied on dry, clean skin and must be applied generously and frequently to maintain protection throughout the day. Sun cream can wash off easily, and should be applied immediately after bathing.

Other than cream,
there are other ways to avoid sunburn
and improve your safety in the sun this summer.
For instance, it is preferable to avoid exposing yourself
directly to the sun during times where the UV ray strength is at
its highest. In the United Kingdom, this is between 11AM and 3PM.
This may vary in different countries, but it is generally better to avoid
direct exposure to the sun in the early afternoon. During sunbathing,
it is also preferable to avoid direct exposure for long periods of time, and you should allow your skin to cool down in the shade every hour or two. You can also use stronger cream in the first few days to avoid sunburn until your skin is better adapted to the sun. Finally, if you are prone to sunburn, wear clothes to protect the most sensitive and exposed areas of your body, such as shoulders and the face.

Make your own lip balm

Cranberry Lip Balm

Who does not want to have soft, kissable lips? To make that possible you have to moisturize your lips with a good lip balm. You can try to find your right lipbalm at a shop or you can create your own homemade lip balm. Now how is that?! Here is a recipe for a lip balm made with fresh cranberries that will leave your lips soft and kissable, and gives them a hint of color. All you need is the following; 10 fresh cranberries, 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil, 1 tee spoon honey and 1 drop of Vitamin E oil.

Mix all the ingredients together in a microwave-safe bowl. Put the bowl in a microwave for a couple of minutes until the mixture just begins to boil. Mix well and gently crush the berries. Let the mixture cool off for approximately five minutes and then strain through a fine sieve to remove all the fruit pieces. Mix the mixture again and then leave it to cool off completely. Now you can put your cranberry lip balm  in something that is smaller and more practical.
