Winter is in our rearview mirror. The warmer weather of spring and summer means more outdoor activities, more travel, and more memorable moments. Be sure you’re feeling your best so you can enjoy every one of those moments by following these three tips.  

Focus on refueling your body: Wake up each morning feeling well rested by getting a consistent seven to eight hours of sleep each night. Good sleep habits – like dimming the lights and unplugging electronics at least 30 minutes before bedtime – can set you up for solid slumber. Then, jump-start your day with a healthy breakfast that includes protein, whole grains, and a fruit or vegetable. For example, try a whole-grain waffle topped with Greek yogurt and berries. 

Stay hydrated: Drinking sufficient fluids each day is essential for almost every aspect of our health, from keeping our joints lubricated to improving brain function. The common advice to drink eight glasses of water a day is a good guideline. But listen to your own body and don’t wait until you get thirsty to reach for your water bottle. It’s also a good idea to up your liquid intake when the temperature and humidity soar and you’re losing fluid through sweating. Unsweetened liquids other than water will keep you hydrated, as will water-rich fruits and vegetables.  

Prepare to be on the go: Along with a charged smartphone and a filled water bottle, consider taking along cleansing wipes like WaterWipes Biodegradable Adult Care Sensitive Wipes when you head out the door. Convenient and easy to open, WaterWipes can help you feel clean and fresh instantly. So, after a round of pickleball or a brisk walk, you can say yes to that lunch invitation with confidence.  

Just as the seasons change, our skin changes, too. As we age, skin becomes thinner and less pliable, sometimes dry and fragile. With only two ingredients – 99.9% water and a drop of fruit extract – WaterWipes Adult Care Sensitive Wipes are fresh, natural, and free of ingredients that could irritate skin. That makes them the purest way to clean and care for delicate adult skin. What’s more, their textured finish feels soft against your skin, and the larger size wipe covers a greater surface of your body.  

Take good care of yourself. Be ready for the surprises in your day by getting your sleep, drinking plenty of water throughout the day, and feeling fresh and clean instantly with WaterWipes.
