After 40 yrs young, I start to see my skin thinner, drier, brown spot on my checks, despite I spent $200/jar or anti-aging cream. I create this REJUVEX for me and women 40 plus, all races and colors. There are many researchers behind this REJUVEX cream, it has been tested with more than 7 years with 95% positive response.

    Father Time can be a harsh master as he will visit the ravages of aging upon all of us. And while aging can’t be stopped, Mother Nature is kinder and provides the means to slow down the unceasing march of time.

  • Tips to Stay Hydrated During Summer!

    Tips to Stay Hydrated During Summer

    Water is very important for your health, but plain water is boring. Here are some tips to stay hydrated during summer.  If you have kids, teenagers, or partners who love outdoor activities or work outside, then these tips may be useful.  If you have elderly parents under your care, you can use these four tips to stay hydrated and avoid many unexpected health problems, save time and money.

    I am in the same boat as all of you. My husband is an inspector and works outside most of the time. His favorite reward at the end of a long work day is to drink one or two bottles of beer. Like most people, he doesn’t prefer plain water as his treat. Because of the hot weather this ear, his appetite was affected. Sometimes he came home not wanting to eat because of the heat.

    I prefer to have a healthy husband, who enjoys life and travels with me.  I look for ways to keep both of us hydrated this summer, which led me to conduct my study.

    Summer Heat Effects

    In the summer, our body uses energy, nutrients, and minerals to regulate the body and prevent overheat. Sweating keeps us cool, but we lose a huge amount of water and minerals through sweating. Without properly hydrating, we are subjecting our self to the following risks:

    • Heat stroke
    • Exhaustion
    • Cramps
    • Heat rash

    These risks are higher for athletic, well-fit, healthy people who love to perform strenuous physical activity. The risks are also higher for people who are often outdoors or workers who work outside. I knew a friend who lost her mom at a very young age. Her mom was a very healthy, strong, athletic beach volleyball player. She was an excellent athlete and had won many medals. She collapsed during a game due to heat stroke. Her husband blamed the hospital staff because he felt they didn’t do their jobs properly. However, it was too late. Staying hydrated is the only way to save us in this hot weather and prevent unexpected accidents from happening to your loved one.

    The AKP Way to Stay Hydrated During Summer

    Here is AKP way to stay hydrated in hot weather and avoid heat-related illness:

    tips to stay hydrated during summer

    Stay Hydrated Tip #1: Drink Before you Feel Thirsty

    1. Track Your Water Intake & Drink Before You Feel Thirsty,

    General water intake advice is one half of the body weight. This number increases during the hot weather as we need more water.

    It’s very easy to forget to hydrate. Kids and healthy young teens have fun playing in the sun and are focused on winning their sports games which makes it easy to forget.

    As people age, their thirst sensor shuts off. This makes it hard to tell when the body is dehydrated until it is overly exhausted.

     

    Set an alarm on your watch or phone to help you remember to hydrate. Consistently consuming water is important because once you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrated. Drink water before you feel thirsty.

    Keep your water ready for use. Tips to stay hydrated during summer include investing in a high-quality, reusable water bottle. You can also reuse glass bottles and jars. You can replenish the water bottle’s contents anytime you are near a sink, water dispenser, or fountain.

    2. Avoid Alcoholic Beverages & Sugary Beverages:

    Having cool beers or sugared sodas is often associated with summer leisure. However, it is not a good drink for hydration purposes. While you might feel more refreshed at first, you’re likely to feel dehydrated soon afterward due to the effects of alcohol and sugar. They are very good diuretics and will cause you to urinate more frequently. This leads to drinking more and overloading the body with calories or alcohol. It’s best to either limit yourself or not drink any at all in the summer.

    Stay Hydrated Tip #2: Avoid Alcohol and Sugar Drink

    3. Make drinking Water Enjoyable With Real Fruits:

    Drinking plain water can get boring and/or difficult to drink when we don’t feel thirsty.

    Plain water or purified water is not a good option to hydrate because it does not replace the minerals lost through sweat. AKP’s way: Make Electrolyte ice-cubes. See the photo below for the recipe.

    Replace minerals lost. Enjoyable. Delicious Way of Hydration tips to stay hydrated during summer

    Stay Hydrated Tip #3: Electrolyte Ice Cube

    Throw a couple of ice-cubes in water with a little natural flavoring from these slices of fruit. This makes an electrolyte minerals solution and also makes water more enjoyable while replacing lost minerals.

    Cool fluids help encourage us to drink more before we even feel thirsty.

    Have fun making ice cubes with your kids, they love to drink what they make.

    Staying fully hydrated keeps us from drinking sugary beverages like soda or beer.

    Save money and improve your health simultaneously.

    Do you lose appetite in hot weather?

    You need nutrients for your body, even in the heat. The following are tips for summer foods.

    Stay Hydrated and nourished with Easy Recipes tips to stay hydrated during summer

    Stay Hydrated Tip #4: Hot days Love Cool Soups

    4. Eat “Cool” Foods in Hot Weather:

    Mother nature is wonderful, she creates summer fruits and vegetables. Watermelon, Oranges, Grapefruit, Spinach, Zucchini, Celery, Radish, Cucumber and more. They contain high amounts of water and also many minerals and vitamins. Thousands of phytochemicals like flavonoids are found in fruits and veggies which play an extremely magical role in many chemical reactions. They happen inside our body to regulate the heat and act as an antioxidants to help neutralize free radicals. These can be caused by sun radiation to prevent sunburn. The dark leafy green vegetables have higher amount of Magnesium, which helps regulate body temperature. 

    These tips to stay hydrated during summer are for the regular person. If you are extremely athletic or on a special diet or medication, you may need to check with your nutritionist. Be aware of possible deficiencies of nutrition, especially Magnesium. I will discuss Magnesium deficiency in another blog.
