We give you the right drinks for dehydration, sunburn relief and everything you need to know to have the time of your life
After a day at the beach, have you ever felt dry, sticky and icky? Well, you’re not the only one. Spending too much time at the beach can have hazardous effects on your whole body, if you’re not prepared. But don’t worry; we have your sandy back. Sunscreen your body up, fill up on hydration drinks and get ready to ride those waves.
1. The sun doesn’t play any games
Consider sunscreen the equivalent to an umbrella on a rainy day. Many beach-goers don’t realize the importance of sunscreen, but sun exposure and UV rays are no-bueno. Even if it’s a quick run on the beach, or the sun doesn’t seem to be too harsh, always carry your waterproof sunscreen and apply generously every few hours. Your skin will thank you later.
2. Dehydration no more
Drink lots of fluids before, during, and after hitting the beach. Dehydration is the main reason why you may feel tired after being exposed to the sun, so make sure you don’t forget your hydration drinks. When your body is properly hydrated, you’re less prone to flaky skin and exhaustion. Don’t know what to drink when dehydrated? Electrolit is the best drink for dehydration, so remember to stock up the cooler. Bonus tip: try Coconut Electrolit for a tropical and effective hydration.
3. Wash it off, wash it off, ohh ohh
Nothing like a cold shower right after coming home from the beach, amirite? Right, but after stepping out of the shower, make sure to apply moisturizing body lotion, cream or whatever works for you. This will help seal in the moisture and keep your skin fresh and clean.
4. After the sun comes… the aloe vera?
So you forgot to put on sunscreen. Even though that’s a huge no-no, it could happen to anyone, and chances are, the sunburn will be a good reminder for next time. First, make sure to wash off all your beachy souvenirs such as sand and salt. After that comes the not so fun part: apply anything that might soothe a sunburn such as:
apple cider vinegar, baking soda, tea, milk, yogurt, honey, vitamin E and the ‘oh so powerful’ Aloe Vera.
So now you know it all! Make sure to follow these tips you’ll probably have 100% fun and 0% ouch. And stock up the cooler with the best hydration drinks out there and have a rad time in the sun.
