During summer, you might feel a little more tired and like you have less energy than usual. Among other factors, this may be caused by the warm weather and high temperatures, which make us sweat and cause mild dehydration and mineral loss. Keep reading to find out how to refresh yourself and maintain good hydration!
• Don’t wait until you’re thirsty before you drink
• Avoid doing outdoor activities during the hottest hours of the day and don’t spend too many hours in the sun
• When you exercise, drink before, during and afterwards
• Drink between 2 and 2.5 litres of fluids during the day, consume both drinks and liquid foods (juices, soups, broths, dairy products, etc.) to restore balanced hydration
Juices and smoothies are a great alternative for rehydration and they also provide vitamins and minerals, but under no circumstances should they replace food. Aside from being highly nutritious, they are also delicious and can be made to suit your tastes.
Detox juices are made by combining and liquefying fruits and vegetables. They are an excellent source of energy and don’t contain many calories. They help to combat the sensation of bloating so you will feel lighter. They also eliminate toxins from your body and provide nutrients as they are rich in minerals, fibre and vitamins.
Smoothies are a great way to ensure your little ones are eating enough fruits and vegetables. The base is the same as a juice except you add milk, yoghurt or a vegetable-based beverage like almond, soya or oat milk. To make them extra refreshing, you can add ice or, in some cases, sweet ingredients like honey or sugar.
When you come to bathe in Caldea, don’t pass up the opportunity to book a beauty treatment that hydrates and repairs your skin. For example, we suggest purchasing admission and the 30-minute Doji massage so you can refresh yourself in the thermal waters and relax with the gentle movements used by our professionals and the application of scented candles.
Now you know, in summer you must maintain good hydration both inside and out😉
