From the beach to the BBQ, summer is a time packed full of social occasions. Naturally, we all want to look our best. But one thing that’s commonly overlooked is spending time on improving what’s inside. And this is the first step for looking good on the outside.
Here’s a checklist for staying healthy this party season, helping you to glow both inside and out.

Tanning
Throughout the 20th century, society began to associate tanned skin with good health. But interestingly, it wasn’t always this way. Golden skin was formerly considered to be a sign of the peasants who spent their days working the fields.


History aside, tanning isn’t healthy, and over-exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can be very dangerous for your health. This season, why not find a healthy balance instead, and pair this season’s great range of women’s swimwear from Very.co.uk with a high quality fake tan? Be sure to exfoliate well and moisturise regularly to make it last as long as possible.

Drinks
With so many social gatherings, it’s not hard to see why summer is thought of as the silly season. And as you flit between different outings and occasions, it’s easy to let your alcohol consumption jump well above the recommended intake.


Men are advised to consume no more than 21 units of alcohol in a week. For ladies, the weekly amount is capped at 14 units. Keeping your alcohol consumption under control is all about planning. If you know you have a big few nights planned at the weekend, it’s always a good idea to detox in the days leading up, so you can stay within your weekly limit.

Diet
Along with the added drinks, summer socialising usually means extra food. If you have a tendency to lose sight of the diet at social gatherings, try and find a compromise. Let yourself eat as much as you like – just restrict your choice to the fruit platter!


Alternatively, eat a light meal, such as vegetable soup, to help fill you up before you head out. This way, when you’re faced with a platter of food, you can decide if you’re eating for hunger or eating for satisfaction.

Stay hydrated
The golden rule for summer socialising is, of course, to drink plenty of water.
Staying hydrated gives you healthy skin and hair, helps you feel alert, and keeps you feeling fuller for longer.

As long as you follow these simple rules you'll definately have fun in the sun!!
