It's time to ditch those jackets and bring out the shades! Now that we have more hours to enjoy the sunshine, it also means there are more hours to beat the heat.

The #1 takeaway to prepare for the spring and summer time is to always wear sunscreen! It should not only be associated with the beach or at the pool but anytime you spend long periods of time outdoors in the sun. A great way to ensure you never go without it is by always carrying a travel size with you. There are pocket sized bottles that can fit in your pocket or purse, or better yet a sunscreen keychain that can easily attach to your keys or bag.
The sun is no joke! Avoid getting overheated with a cooling towel on hand. On its own it can take off the sweat but add water to your towel and it will keep you cool long after the sweat is gone! The great thing is they come in several different sizes and colors so there's something for everyone.
Another great way to stay cool is with a portable fan. It is easy and convenient to carry around whether you're attending outdoor sporting events, festivals or just enjoying a day outside. The traditional hand-held fans are now being replaced with battery powered options so you can feel the breeze with the ease of a button. Even better, a rechargeable fan eliminates the hassle of having to find batteries when they unexpectedly run out.
Nobody likes a warm beverage and there's only so much a neoprene koozie can do. Instead, a better alternative would be a stainless steel can cooler. It will keep your drink colder longer and it can fit both cans and bottles.
The only way to avoid the heat is by staying indoors but what fun is that! Make being outdoors enjoyable by using these products to keep you cool.
