Whether or not you burn in the sun, sunscreen can help reduce skin damage from the sun altogether. It's important to keep sunscreen with you, especially if you find yourself outdoors often! Keep your summer activities fun and safe by protecting your skin!
Your skin isn't the only thing that needs protection. Proper sunglasses can help protect the eyes from harmful UV rays. Stay safe and stylish with a pair of good shades.
My favorite accessory. I take my reusable water bottle everywhere I go because it limits the usage of plastic water bottles, and helps me stay hydrated all day long! It can also save you a few dollars a day if you usually buy bottled water on the go.
DISPOSABLE/ POLAROID CAMERA
Be ready to capture life's wonderful moments on film! I love having a disposable camera on me so I can have a few printable photos at the end of the summer. They're great to keep, add to a small gift or string up on a wall!
A BOOK OR MAGAZINE
I love to keep at least one book or magazine, along with my journal and planner with me. You'll never know when you need to jot something down, or when the long summer day calls for a reading break. At the beach, by the pool or sitting in traffic- a book is always good to have!
Good shoes are a MUST HAVE for any and all summer outings. Shoes are your foundation and support for adventures and activities, and help you stay on your feet during the loveliest season of the year. Rhea Footwear's non-slip sandals combine fashion and function with NeverSlip technology. This is how Rhea does beach days:
In case you haven't yet seen what Rhea Footwear sandals can do, check out this short video:
Just about six months ago, Falcons rookie running back Tevin Coleman suffered a concussion after slipping in the team's facility showers. Earlier that week, there was talk about using the promising running back in a big game but his shower accident called for a change of plans.
Last fall, Canadian tennis player Genie Bouchard suffered a similar accident. In a dark training room with no one else in the building, Genie came across a wet spot on the floor and slipped, causing a serious concussion. Bouchard was forced to withdraw from the U.S. open the following week because of her injury.
A couple years ago, Celtics player Rajon Rondo broke his hand in (yet again) a slip and fall shower accident. At the media day when reporters bombarded Rajon with questions regarding his injury, the Celtics president of operations Danny Ainge admitted that he too had recently faced a head injury after slipping in the shower. All in all, shower injuries from slip and fall accidents are very common and can adversely affect a professional athlete's career.
Rhea Footwear is scheduled to release a shower sandal this summer that is the ultimate preventative measure against shower injuries. With a grip-tech sole that combines an exclusive rubber compound and a patented micro-channel tread, these sandals will grip the on the most extreme slippery conditions.
Even further suitable for shower environments, the shower sandals have drainage holes to prevent puddling at the feet and also include anti-microbial materials to protect from disease and illness found on most bathroom floors.
Slip and fall accidents are a common and serious issue that all athletes should be aware of. Gyms, training rooms, locker rooms and communal shower facilities can be the next site of major injury if preventative action is not taken. Stay tuned for information regarding our soon to be released shower sandals.
