Summer

Summer has arrived and many of us have not been in the sun and outdoors in a long time.  After speaking with many of my clients, I have gathered their comments to get us Summer ready and help keep us healthy and safe.     

In addition to the Summer hints listed, I have an idea that is not only nutritious but delicious.  When I find myself with too many oranges, grapefruits or lemons, there is a perfect solution.  Squeeze the juice from the fruit, and pour the juice into different ice cube trays.  After frozen, the "fruit juice" ice cubes can then be added to your favorite ice tea, water, cocktail or summer drink.  What a great way to experience fresh fruit and stay cool at the same time.  You can also add fresh herbs to ice cube trays (with a little water) which is the perfect way to save your delicate spices for cooking. 

Because it is so hot in the desert, many of us turn to lighter wines during the Summer months and add ice cubes to our drinks.  That thought might frighten wine connoisseurs, however, if you add a bottle of the same wine in ice cube trays, your wine will be almost perfect as the wine enhanced ice cubes melt in your drink.   

Please feel free to contact me if you have any product questions and helpful Summer ideas that I can pass along to my clients. 

Sincerely, Dolores

Since you have not been in the sun and outdoors in a long time,  please consider the following helpful hints:

*Stretching is a great way to begin the day.  Start with light stretching to loosen up your body.  Reaching up to the sky then doing a few knee bends will help keep you and your body young and vital.

*Begin your outdoor activities very slowly.  Perhaps walking for a few days  before you begin running or jogging and alternate with walking.  Or, walk on the Sanddune to slowly get your body used to "moving" again. 

*Use a sunscreen or sunblock before outdoor activities, even when it is cloudy, especially on your face, earlobes, neck and throat areas.  Women, wearing liquid makeup or a tinted BB Cream and lipstick help to protect from the rays of the sun. 

*Men, please remember to use sunscreen or sunblock  especially when working out doors and playing sports, such as golf, tennis or hoops.

*Wearing a hat while outdoors will not only help keep the sun off of your face but your hair from fading, especially if you color your hair. 

*Don't leave home without having a container of water with you.  Sometimes I get tired of drinking water, so I add a drop or two of lemon, orange or grapefruit juice squeezed from the actual fruit to liven up the taste.

*Remember to gently moisturize your body on a daily basis.  We have a tendency to over shower during the Summer, so your skin needs to be protected.

     
*Spray yourself with an anti-insect repellent before going hiking or on a walk in the forest and be aware of ticks.  This might be the time to forgo your favorite fragrance. 
 
*Don't forget your Pets during the hot Summer months.  Their feet and skin cannot handle the hot sun and asphalt, as well as fleas.  One of my long-time clients has  purchased little booties for her doggie, and he just loves them.  For more Information on easy & beneficial Dog Grooming Click Here

                   The Sanddune
                 (Your Exercising Companion)

Since I live in the desert, and it can get over 110 during  the day, or when I am too busy, I use The Sanddune.  The Sanddune is a low impact aerobic exercise foam block that helps my core strength, balance, coordination cardio and toning, all without leaving my home. 

I also find myself on the Sanddune several times a day when sitting at my computer has also taken its toll on my body and posture.  It is a very quick exercise pick-me-up.
