Tips for Summer
Itzcovitz, Fashion and
Picture courtesy of M&Co
It's Summer and
many of us are taking relaxing
holidays, sunbathing in the
garden or going out for day
trips to the beach, countryside
or sightseeing. But the weather
can often be changeable,
especially if you are holidaying
in the UK. One minute it's
boiling hot, a few hours later
there's a downpour of rain, and
then it's sunny again the
So I've put together my top tips
for August and September and making the most
of the warmer weather, whatever
you decide to do this Summer.
Top Tips for the Summer
Protect yourself from the sun -
Be careful if you are planning a
beach holiday or tend to spend
long lengths of time in the
garden, to protect yourself from
the harmful rays of the sun with
a high quality sunscreen.
Make sure to apply it to your
face, arms, legs, nose, ears and
anywhere that is exposed to the
sun. Reapply it after swimming,
even if you think you are
sitting in the shade. And go for
a high factor SPF for the best
My favourite product, and great
value this season is Sun Smart
Sensitive Moisture Protect Sun
Lotion SPF 30 from Marks &
Spencer. It features a skin
caring complex of sunflower oil,
soothing aloe, and antioxidant
Vitamin E to keep your skin
moisturised, while protecting it
against the damaging effects of
the sun. Water resistant to
protect you while swimming for
up to 40 minutes. Price is £6.65

Wear sunglasses - Many of us
forget to wear sunglasses as
they can be uncomfortable but
they are essential to protect
your eyes from the damaging rays
of the sun.
If you already wear glasses, ask
your optician to advise you on
prescription sunglasses or clip
on lenses. Don't leave it to the
last minute before you go on
It's a good idea to have your
eyes tested before you go on
holiday to check your eye health
and to ensure you have the
correct prescription for your
glasses. Bring along a spare
pair of glasses if you need to
and disposable lens wipes to
keep them clean.
Beachside confidence - For many
of us, wearing a swimsuit for
the beach or swimming pool can
make you feel self conscious and
shy, especially if you have put
on a bit of weight over the
years or have stretch marks or
So don't feel that you have to
wear a bikini if you don't want
to. There are some gorgeous
one-piece swimsuits with hidden
tummy control and hidden support.

technology, where an inner layer

It's also a good idea to bring
along a cover-up to walk down to
the beach or poolside. An
oversized denim shirt or black
shirt left half unbuttoned looks
very stylish. It can also be
used to protect you from the
sun's rays. A kaftan or sarong
is also very chic.
Wear a hat - Treat yourself to a
beach hat for sunbathing or a
day out sightseeing to protect
your face from the sun.
Sun hats are very on-trend at
the moment, look out for wide
brimmed straw hats or sultry
panamas - very cool. They will
stop your skin from burning or
freckling in the sun.
ASOS have a great selection of
hats at excellent value. This
lovely Straw Floppy Hat with
Multi Tassel and Pom Pom Trim
offers good protection from the
sun and is light and youthful.
Price is £10.50.

Drink plenty of water - When the
weather gets warmer it's more

you can ask your tour guide for
advice if you are not sure.
Go swimming - Summer is a great
time to go swimming and tone up
your body. Swimming is the
perfect way to keep in trim and
feel healthy and refreshed at
the same time. If you are on
holiday, try an early morning
swim before breakfast when the
pool is relatively quiet.
If you aren't
lucky enough to have a holiday
this summer, go to your local
swimming pool with a friend or
try a water aerobics class.
