Summertime comes with sunshine, plenty of outdoor time, and an abundance of locally grown fruits and vegetables.

But it also comes with its own set of nutritional challenges. With a little planning, you can overcome these and make it your best summer yet.

Sunshine can do a number on your skin

Hitting the beach on a sunny day is the quintessential summer escape. But the cycle of swim, dry in the sun, repeat can damage your skin. Chlorinated pools can also leave your skin feeling dry and tight.

To support your skin health, make sure your diet includes plenty of antioxidants. Reach for strawberries, raspberries, blueberries—any brightly colored fruits and vegetables that pack this nutritional punch.

For even more support, try a supplement that provides phytonutrients, which are the natural nutrients in vegetables and fruits that give them their vibrant hues.

Protect your hair

The more time spent in the sun or at the pool can mean dry, damaged hair. A diet rich in protein can help nourish and protect your summer locks. Pick lean meats, beans or legumes, low-fat dairy or other lean sources, like Plant Based Protein Powder.

Biotin supplement can also help your effort to promote healthy hair.

Hydration and electrolytes

You may be spending more time at the water in the summer, but are you drinking enough water? The more time you are spending outside exercising, playing or sweating in the sun, the more attention you need to pay to staying hydrated.

Start your day with a glass of water when you wake up to get yourself on the right path—then keep up the pattern during the day. If you are on the move, make sure to pack water.
