5 guaranteed tips for a great summer with VIVO! Bratislava
Have you already been on summer vacation or are you just planning your vacation days near the water? To make the upcoming sunny weeks really great for you, our blogger Lenka has written 5 guaranteed tips for you – from eye protection to amazing summer dresses.
Sunglasses do not only serve an aesthetic purpose. Their main task is to protect the eye from harmful UV radiation. In the eye, the UV radiation is absorbed mainly by the conjunctiva and partly by the cornea.
Therefore, insufficient protection against the UV radiation can often lead to conjunctivitis or, in extreme cases, to corneal inflammation – keratitis. Excessive exposure to radiation can then irreversibly damage vision. Therefore, your sunglasses should meet high requirements and provide 100% protection for your eyes. You can choose the model according to the type of activity for which you use the sunglasses most often, or according to shapes and colors and renowned fashion brands.
Although sunglasses in supermarkets or drugstores are attractive because of their favorable prices and nice design, they are a gamble for your eyes when exposed to direct sunlight, on the beach by the sea for example. Most renowned brands indicate the UV protection on the label. Look for a label that says "100% UVA and UVB protection" or "100% UV 400 protection". You can visit FOKUS Optics, for example.
2 SPF during each day
Yes – not only during the summer holidays and sunbathing, but every day. Did you know that environmental factors (UV radiation and pollution) are responsible for up to 80% of skin aging?
Both types of the UV radiation have the potential to damage the skin throughout the year, so make sure your skincare routine protects your skin from both UVA and UVB radiation.
Your day cream should contain at least SPF 25 to guarantee basic protection at least. If you are going on vacation and do not want to miss sunbathing, buy a sunscreen from a pharmacy with a higher factor.
High summer temperatures can drain the human body more than physical strain. The feeling of thirst is a warning sign of a significant lack of water in the body. You should replenish fluids continuously – even before feeling thirsty.
Insufficient fluid intake causes various health problems, most often dehydration of the body, which is manifested by fatigue, drowsiness, dizziness, impaired coordination, dryness and inflexibility of the skin, accelerated pulse, lowered blood pressure. Water is absolutely necessary for human life and that is why it is very important to prevent dehydration in the summer heat with a suitable drinking regimen. During the heat, it is recommended to drink a minimum of 2-4 deciliters of fluid per 10 kilograms of body weight, which is approximately 1.5 to 3 liters of fluid per day. However, this amount increases with people who work physically and sweat more.
Water should be consumed continuously, in smaller doses and more often. The most suitable is drinking water, but also mineral waters, unsweetened herbal and fruit teas. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices diluted with water are also suitable. If you are interested in the last tip regarding the fresh juices, try out one of the Fruitisimo stores.
Namely our tip – Passion fruit drink Maracujáda, which in connection with ice cubes will provide refreshment even during a really hot day in the city. We hope you enjoy it too!
You will definitely agree that in summer there is nothing worse than a polyester dress wrapped around you. We should feel comfortable and cosy in our clothes. Therefore, choose a looser cut in the length below the knee or midi, i. e. in the middle of the shank. With a ready-made size, you can go one or two numbers higher, so that your comfort is really guaranteed.
When buying amazing summer clothes, it is not enough to just touch them. Focus also on what is written on the label. Polyester with a small admixture can look as a pleasant cotton or lyocell. Experts agree that the best materials for your skin to be able to breathe and the sweat to soak up are cotton (be careful of the polyester content), linen (if it does not crease, it is not real linen), silk (has the ability to cool you down), bamboo (highly breathable, with excellent water absorbency, and the ability to block UV radiation 417 times more compared to cotton) and the very popular hemp (solid antibacterial and hypoallergenic material). You will also find lyocell dresses in the H&M store.
This is a relatively new way of producing textile fibers, which is known for its environmental friendliness. In the fashion industry it quickly became popular and its popularity continues to rise. It has countless advantages, some of which surpass classic cotton.
Are you sure you are wearing the right size? More than 80% of women wear the wrong bra, most often with the wrong cup size. Most of them wear larger girth and cups than they actually should. Either they want to put their breasts in smaller cups, which results in "overflowing", or on the contrary, the cups stand out and the breasts are "drowned" in it.
Wearing the right bra works wonders not only with your figure, but it can also help your health. It is very important to choose the right bra size. Even when choosing a swimsuit bra. We recommend that you visit the Attractiv store. They will measure your size and offer you a perfectly fitting swimsuit or underwear.
