Sunscreen

Now that the weather is warming up, it is important to remember the benefits of wearing sunscreen. Sunscreen prevents sunburn, wrinkling, premature aging and most importantly, skin cancer. Enjoy the outdoors without hurting yourself by picking a sunscreen that has SPF of at least 15. It is also important to look for a waterproof brand if you will be sweating or swimming.

Greek yogurt

Greek yogurt is heavily strained to remove liquid whey and lactose, leaving behind a rich, creamy and tart product. Snacking on Greek yogurt is a smart and gratifying choice if you are craving a healthy snack. Greek yogurt is high in protein, which helps promote fullness. It is also a great source of calcium and is good for your digestive health which keeps the bacteria in your gut healthy.

Cuticle oil

Nail oil is designed to protect and maintain healthy cuticles. The majority of nail/cuticle oils are made with moisturizing oils such as avocado oil or almond oil and typically includes vitamins, particularly vitamin E. It leaves your cuticles looking soft and keeps your nails hydrated. Nail oil also helps protect nails from breaking due to lack of moisture.
