Here are some great tips found at

1. Make Hydration a Habit
With temperatures on the rise and activity levels peaking, it is crucial to stay hydrated for good health. Try keeping a reusable water bottle with you at all times to keep thirst at bay. You can even mix it up with infused or flavored waters like OWater or Metormint Water to avoid symptoms of dehydration which include dizziness, fatigue and even loss of consciousness in more severe cases.

2. Slather on the Sunscreen
And not just any sunscreen. A 2008 Environmental Working Group study found inadequate protection or hazardous ingredients in all but one of the top 3 brands of sunscreens, including Coppertone and Banana Boat. Protect your skin (and youthful appearance) with a mineral sun block like Badger’s full spectrum micronized zinc oxide sunscreen.

3. Don’t Become Dinner
Avoid skin irritating insect bites with a DEET-free natural bug spray. A USDA report found soy-based Bite Blocker from Homs, LLC to be as effective as 15% DEET while clinical studies have shown All Terrain’s Herbal Armor to be 100% effective for two hours. Grab some the next time the riverside is calling.
