Summer is in full swing and if you aren’t enjoying the great weather, clear skies, and vibrant energy outdoors, then you are definitely missing out. In this blog post, we discuss five essentials for people who want to enjoy outdoor living this summer:
Did you know that people who use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher daily show 24 percent less skin aging than those who do not use sunscreen daily? Sun damage is cumulative. A huge 23 percent of a person’s total lifetime sun exposure occurs by age 18. If you are enjoying the outdoors, be sure to always have sunscreen on you and to reapply it often. Avoid burnt faces and the potentially deadly consequences of the sun’s UV rays with sunscreen!
- A GPS
Want to visit a national park, go on a road trip to a nearby city, or have a picnic in a park that you’ve never been to? Be sure to download Google Maps on your phone to safely take you to wherever your heart desires this season.
The average American family uses more than 300 gallons (ca. 1,136 l) of water per day at home, but how much of this makes its way into your body? The warmer weather increases the risk of dehydration, so make sure that you always have a reusable water bottle handy.
- Caps, Sunglasses and Summer Gear
Your summer attire will be greatly different from the jackets, earmuffs, and scarves that you may wear in winter. Be sure to always pack a cap, sunglasses, flip flops, and anything else you need to be comfortable in summer.
- A pool with a Retractable Roof
Entertaining guests at your home? Never miss a holiday activity with your friends and family at a pool with a retractable roof. These future-focused enclosures for homes allow you to enjoy the unobstructed views of the outdoors, get some fresh air, and stock up on Vitamin D safely. Never worry about having to cancel a pool party because of rain and the enclosure itself helps tremendously with pool maintenance as you won’t have leaves, grass, and dirt blowing into the pool!
