Close your eyes and imagine the rustle of the leaves when the breeze sweeps through the palm trees. The scent of coconut oil and barbecue combine into an intoxicating aroma of what can only be described as sweet, sweet summertime. Warmer temperatures are right around the corner, and soon short shorts, strappy sandals, and outdoor lounging will be the music of the moment. Sitting seaside is not an option for everyone, especially in Atlanta, but enjoying an afternoon by the pool is a perfect way to enjoy a hot Atlanta summer. Before jumping feet first into the deep end of summertime bliss get prepared with these poolside must-haves. They are guaranteed to make any moment by the pool more euphoric.
No one wants to feel like a wet dog after taking a dive in the pool so be prepared to dry off quickly. Have a highly absorbent, oversized towel, nearby. A colorful towel, suitable for poolside lounging, is a summertime must-have. It should be long enough to lay out on and warm and plush enough to cuddle into if there is a cool breeze.
The glare from sparkling pool water can be blinding. Look stylish and protect your eyes and the sensitive skin around them with polarized lenses. Functional and fashion forward, sunglasses are the perfect poolside accessory to keep you looking great in any weather.
Remain poolside even longer by fighting off dehydration and heat stroke. Staying hydrated will help you maintain a cooler body temperature - in or out of the pool - plus, it helps keep skin looking clear and youthful. Filling up an insulated water bottle and keep it nearby while enjoying time outdoors. Athletic drinks, fruit juices, and colas are all tasty, but water is the best option for poolside longevity.
Sunscreen is vital to enjoying time outside. Protecting skin from the sun’s harmful UVR (Ultraviolet Radiation) is imperative to maintaining a healthy summertime glow. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more is best for extended outdoor exposure, so lather up with sunscreen a half hour before sitting poolside. Applying sunscreen with SPF is an easy way to extend your time in the sun and prevent skin damage.
