Most of us have planned our summer vacations, whether it is a road trip, stay-cation or a beach vacation. Travelling can be tricky if not planned properly. Proper planning doesn’t only include booking hotels or preparation of a ‘things-to-do’ list but it also involves, planning nutrition and staying healthy during the journey.
Here are 06 tips travellers must keep in mind —
Sightseeing, sweating and drinking sugary drinks tend to dehydrate our body. It is important to keep water handy at all times. Consuming fruits and vegetables with high water content is suggested.
Adopt an appropriate skin care routine
While travelling during summers, excessive oil and sweat can harm your skin in many ways. Before embarking on your trip, it is important that you choose skin care products that suit the season. Face packs with aloe vera gel or sandalwood can be of great help. Whenever stepping out, don’t forget to apply sunscreen to all exposed parts of your body.
Pick the right destination
Pick destinations which are less touristy and where the weather is pleasant for sightseeing. Choosing hill stations over beaches can be a smart choice during summers.
Eat cooling foods
During summers when the body is prone to dehydration, staying away from oily street food is the best choice. Try to munch on foods like cucumber and watermelon through the day.
Choose the right clothes
Cotton and linen clothes are best for the summer season. Avoid dark coloured clothes as they absorb more heat.
Timing is important
Spend the day time, from 11 am to 4 pm indoors as it is the hottest time of the day. You can use this time to explore places like museums, shopping centres or enjoy a nice movie.
In addition, always remember to carry some emergency medications in case of any minor health issues. .
Hope you enjoy your summer vacations!
