sipping your favorite fruit cocktail.
# Wear a hat - even in the morning, the sun can be so strong, especially on the beach - so use your hat (it will protect your skin and hear).
# Wear cotton clothes - loose and comfortable clothes, preferably cotton will help air movement around your body and evaporation of the sweat.
# Apply a sun protection factor - use natural sprays with with proven ingredients like coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil etc. That way you keep the skin safe from harmful substances and possible sun allergy.
# Drink a lot of fluid (herbal tea is the best solution) - herbal teas contain many healthy ingredients that help you stay hydrated, such as mint tea or lemon balm. Add in an ice cube and a slice of lemon and sure you will not feel thirsty. Avoid beverages that contain alcohol, caffeine, or lots of sugar, which are dehydrating.
