Summer Survival Tips

Summer is Here

With it all the wonderful things that come along with the warmest time of the year – outdoor barbeques and leisure activities, water sports, hiking, biking, and more. Unfortunately, summer also brings with it some less desirable things such as flying insects, overexposure to the sun, overexertion while exercising, and profuse sweating, to name just a few.

Thankfully NOW® offers a variety of natural products to help you get the most out of your summer!

Keep Mosquitoes at Bay

Nothing can ruin a cookout or picnic faster than a swarm of hungry mosquitoes or other flying, biting insects. NOW offers two different products that can help you protect your family and friends from summer’s worst insect perpetrators.

NOW® Essential Oils can naturally help repel seasonal bugs. Outdoor Living Essential Oil Blend, Lemon Eucalyptus, Lavender, Thyme, Citronella, Lemongrass, Tea Tree, Neem, Peppermint and Geranium are few that act as a natural insect deterrent.

Protect Yourself From The Sun

With so much to do and so many fun things to capture our attention during the summer months, it can be super-easy to forget about protecting yourself from the sun. If you’ve ever had a sunburn you know what a bummer it can be. While we can’t keep sunburn from happening, we can help make it a little more bearable until the body’s natural healing processes do their thing.

NOW® Aloe Soothing Gel is a refreshing and revitalizing formula with aloe vera and cucumber extract to help naturally replenish healthy skin. Allantoin, arginine, and vitamin E help to soothe exposed skin, restoring moisture, and panthenol help to deeply moisturize the skin.

Hydration is Essential

For many warmer weather means increased physical activity, yet we often forget one of the most crucial aspects of exercise – hydration. Neglecting to stay hydrated is a bad idea any time of the year, but it can become a serious health concern when it occurs on hot summer days. In addition to resting regularly and avoiding prolonged sun exposure, staying hydrated is absolutely essential to thriving during the summer.

A Shave That Comforts & Soothes

If you enjoy swimming or sunbathing during the summer, then you probably put a premium on the appearance of your skin. You want to ensure that your exposed skin looks and feels great. Protecting it with sunscreen, and moisturizing with natural creams and oils, go a long way toward making this possible. But did you know that shaving also plays a huge role in the appearance of your skin?

NOW® Solutions Nutri-Shave™ Natural Shave Cream is specially formulated to reduce irritation and the occurrence of ingrown hairs that shaving can cause, leaving skin smooth, healthy and well nourished. Ideal for both women and men.

Support Temporary Effects of Overexertion

Physical fitness means pushing your personal boundaries, but sometimes leaping those boundaries can come at a cost when you overexert yourself. Minor, temporary aches and pains due to overexertion may be unavoidable, but you don’t have to let them linger…

NOW offers a variety of supplements that may help when dealing with the temporary effects of overexertion, including two of our favorites. Joint Support™ is a blend of natural ingredients and nutrients that help to support the formation and function of healthy joint tissues. L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that helps to maintain overall good health and aids in recovery from exercise, while helping to reduce muscle soreness after physical exertion.
