Feel better in your skin
The fact that we also expose more of our bodies on hot days means that many people feel uncomfortable with their swollen bodies. First, it is good to know that you are not alone with this. In addition, there are a few things you can do to feel just that little bit more comfortable in your own skin. With these three tips you can reduce bloating:
1. Avoid dehydration
It may feel like your stomach is very full, but don’t let this stop you from drinking enough water. Take small sips throughout the day and don’t go out without a bottle of water. Coconut water can also be beneficial. It contains electrolytes that can reduce the symptoms of dehydration.
2. Avoid certain foods
Some foods cause bloating, no matter how healthy they are. So, avoid these products on hot days. For many people, legumes, fiber-rich vegetables, caffeine, alcohol and soda are the culprits. If you want to drink a glass of wine or a beer, drink an extra glass of water for each glass of alcohol, to prevent dehydration.
3. Peppermint and ginger
These two plants are known for their effective action against digestive problems. On a sweltering day, you may not want a warm herbal tea, so make it a delicious iced tea. Brew tea with fresh peppermint and ginger, let it cool and add ice cubes. This way you immediately put back extra moisture.
