Summer is just around the corner. You know what that means: it’s time to rummage through your dresser drawers, pull out that swimsuit and face the mirror. Hiding under sweaters and long-sleeved shirts is no longer an option with all of those pool parties, beach weekends and vacations on the calendar.
Why bother with white sugar when raw honey is just as sweet–and good for you?! “Raw” refers to the non-filtered, non-processed form of this sticky substance, made by bees from the nectar of flowers. In its pure, natural state, honey is swimming with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, live enzymes and other beneficial nutrients. Plus, it tastes great, whether swirled into a cup of hot tea, drizzled over a warm muffin or eaten straight from the spoon!
The stores are filled with bikinis and beach blankets, and visions of summer vacations are distracting everyone from kids at school to seasoned office workers. Just one problem: For many of us, those winter comfort foods like mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie have resulted in too many bulges for bikini bliss. If winter weight gain is preventing you from anticipating beach season, then relax. We’ve got the skinny on how to slim down and achieve your best body for summer fun:
Q: I dread the thought of developing sun spots. What can I do to prevent them?

As the weather warms up, we find ourselves out and about enjoying the sunshine and all the beauty Mother Nature offers this time of year. Swimming pools, lakes, rivers and oceans are all calling out for us to swim and play. Being outdoors is wonderful, but you must remember skin care basics! With increased outdoor activity, remember that UVA/UVB rays from the sun contribute to more than half of the aging process. That’s right. The sun contributes to aging more than anything else. Who wants wrinkles, sun spots and sagging skin?
Being cooped up all winter is no fun. Now that spring is (finally!) here, why not take advantage of the beautiful weather and get outside for some fresh air, sunshine and exercise? There are endless fun and creative ways to work out outdoors—most of which won’t cost you a thing. So slather on some sunscreen, fill up that water bottle and try these ideas to get moving outside the gym or home.
Now that summer is here, you’re probably spending a lot more time outdoors. For me, it took years to learn the importance of wearing sunscreen. I remember being at the beach with friends when I was younger, slathering on tanning oil and spending the entire day in the sun without giving it a second thought.
Break out the beach balls, bikinis and barbeque sauce – summer is upon us! And so is the sweltering sun, of course. If you’re planning to step outside and enjoy the beautiful weather, be sure to protect yourself with a safe, natural and effective sunscreen.
This quick, handy guide will make it easy to choose the sunscreen that’s right for you:
