hint of Summer in the Hamptons
It's the first day of Summer, which means everyone in New York is starting to escape the city on the weekend. I was lucky enough to spend a few days in East Hampton on a press trip, soaking up some sun and lounging poolside! It's only a 90 mile drive, but if you leave at the wrong time on a Friday, you can get stuck in traffic for five or six hours (like we were). It's a small price to pay though to have this little oasis on the other end!! Maybe next time I'll just take the train?! lol.
It was a hot weekend, so I made sure to stay hydrated with the partner of today's blog post, hint water.
Hint is an unsweetened, flavored water made for people who want to avoid soda, sugar and diet sweeteners, but get bored with drinking plain water. It's 99.9% water with just a 'hint' of flavor. Just the right amount!
I do a few things differently in my routine when Summer hits:
-I stop using a heavy moisturizer and switch to a serum or oil (which you'd think would make your face more oily, but it doesn't)
-I walk more (I explore NYC a hell of a lot more in the Summer. It's too beautiful to stay inside.)
-I work out more (gotta get that beach body, honey)
-I drink more water!
I honestly have a hard time drinking water. I know it's important to stay hydrated and healthy, particularly in the Summer, but drinking 8 glasses a day (or however much they say you should drink these days) is a lot. That said, I am making every effort to be more health-conscious. You won't get that Summer body drinking sugary sodas! I cut out sugar from my morning coffee and stopped eating sugary pastries. My next hurtle is water.
Hint has a whole range of flavors to try, so it makes drinking water a hell of a lot more fun. Watermelon is my favorite, but they offer everything from cucumber to peppermint. If you're spending your weekends in a pool, drinking rosé and soaking up the sun, STAY HYDRATED. It's also incredibly important for your skin. The more water you drink, the clearer and more even your skin will be!
What are you doing this Summer to stay healthy and hydrated?? Let me know in the comments. ;)
