Summer ready

Well that sure was one long never-ending winter! We finally seem to be coming out from it and can now dare to turn our thoughts to hopes of summer sun and heat – making plans for long evenings in the outdoors and trips away. Two things we might need to think about are safe sun exposure and not succumbing to a feeding frenzy on our newly-bared skin.

Many of us know to supplement with vitamin D, but the main natural source of it is sunlight as you might know. Sun creams unfortunately block this, which is no doubt partly why more people are deficient so it’s worth thinking about letting the sun on your arms and legs maybe for a certain length of time most days – 20 minutes early morning and late afternoon when the risk of damage is low is probably safe for most of us in Ireland.

Sunscreens can be a problem in terms of some of the chemicals they contain which get absorbed into our systems, but also they are adding to the environmental burden where they get washed into the oceans, affecting aquatic life. Naturally your local independent health store will have sunscreen products that don’t contain these harmful chemicals. Pop in to your local Health Stores Ireland member shop where you can be advised on products.

There are also vitamins and other supplements that you can take to protect yourself from within, which is worth considering if you are going somewhere with hot sun. Loading up on oily fish and antioxidant-rich veggies and fruits will work to this too, so think of Mediterranean style meals now – full of good fats and brightly coloured fruit and vegetables.

Many of us are just too attractive to various insects and it can often be a big nuisance and sometimes the ruination of a holiday to be feasted upon when others are blissfully unapproached. There are essential oils that have a repellent effect and smell nice too, but also some very effective spray products that don’t contain neurotoxins like their conventional counterparts. When it’s more than a nuisance it is worth chatting to staff in your local health store about what vitamins and supplements to take to make you less of a magnet to these suckers. There are also a number of natural products that can help relieve reactions to bites by lowering the histamine response and these also work well for the miserable effect of pollen allergies that plague so many people.

Prevention is always the best idea and your local Health Stores Ireland member store is your resource for solutions for these summer challenges.
