Take SPF pills

Shield your skin with additional SPF provided by a sun protection pill.

Summer is the time to relax, take it easy and plan your long holiday away from the everyday routine. Well, we are sorry to interrupt, but you cannot avoid your regular exercise. Apart from making you look good for the beach it helps your overall health and improves your mood. Therefore, if the summer heat is bothering you and making you avoid your regular workout, you should consider practicing swimming.

For those who are lucky enough to live by the water, this can be very easy as it includes all the beach fun. However, make sure you establish a good schedule and stick to it. Swim every day for 15-20 minutes and gradually increase the time until you reach 45 minutes of swimming with short breaks. Pool swimming is also a very good option for those who don’t live near the beach. You can practice the same routine and enjoy all the benefits of this sport.

Here are the health benefits swimming provides:
