Summer heat is upon us. Already, afternoons are horribly humid and everybody's throat is parched. If you're overweight like me, you'd also feel a little short of breath just walking short distances in this heat.
So hydrate, hydrate and hydrate. Drinking lots of water will save you from real medical problems brought about by heat as well as from drying up like a raisin. If your skin is looking all dried up and you're sporting cracked lips, it means you're not hydrating enough. And that you may need to load up on certain vitamins.
And though it makes us feel icky applying them, using moisturizers, lotion, sunscreens and anti aging face cream regularly and vigilantly will go a long way in having healthy skin. So take the time and make the investment. An ounce of face cream now IS worth more than a pound of wrinkle creams later.
