A healthy beach routine is ideal if we want to fully and healthily enjoy a trip to the beach. Take note of these tips we bring for you!.

From Las Dunas Surf Resort this week we bring you a series of tips to maintain a routine of healthy habits in the summer. And especially if we go to the beach, where a good nutrition and hydration is of importance.

Healthy beach routine:

We want to emphasize that these tips are basically appreciations on how we can maintain certain healthy habits without neglecting the rest and relaxation of the vacations. Summer is the time expected by many, not only for the vacations but also to get out of the monotony and do new things.

Good eating habits can make the difference in the enjoyment of the vacations. And this ranges from a good organization of food to physical and skin care. Let’s take a look at the tips:

1. Never go to the beach on an empty stomach:

Many times because of the excitement of a day at the beach, we go without breakfast. And it is a mistake, because due to the temperature or environmental characteristics, dizziness or low blood pressure may occur.

2. Hydration always present:

It is advisable to drink 2 liters of water a day, and ideally not wait until you are thirsty to do so. Proper hydration at the beach makes a difference: it keeps you active, helps the skin, and refreshes. Due to the temperatures, sweating increases. The ideal is to drink natural juices.

3. Eat every 3 to 4 hours:


Many times in the excitement of the beach we may miss eating properly. The ideal is to distribute throughout the day several meals: fruits, vegetables, bread, salads and other essential snacks. Large meals should be avoided.

4. Avoid culinary temptations:

At the beach we can find multiple options that can tempt us. From typical dishes of the area to more “creative” options. Although it can be quite an experience, many times there is a risk of indigestion, intoxication and others.

5. Know the area:

Every beach is different, and so is every wave. It is therefore important to know everything about the beach you are going to: best season, weather, type of waves, if there are jellyfish or not, etc. It is also important to know where there are lodgings, hospitals and other services.

6. Sun and hair protection:

Prolonged exposure to the sun generates wear and tear of the dermis and hair texture. It is essential to use adequate sunscreen for skin and hair. Also, hats or caps should be worn to avoid direct sun exposure.

7. Avoid peak sun hours:

If your plan is to get a great tan, you don’t need to spend all day in the sun. Peak sun hours will burn your skin. It is best to expose yourself to the sun from 9am to 12pm and from 4pm to 6pm.

These tips for a healthy beach routine will allow you to enjoy a relaxing day. The important thing is not to neglect basic aspects such as good nutrition and hydration. And at the same time be aware of sun exposure.
