The summers are here and how! Humidity and excessive sweating flushes out fluids from our body, leaving us dehydrated and in extreme cases, sick. Lack of fluids can also cause digestion issues and spell danger for our skin and hair. That's why, we are advised to drink as much water and liquids as we can to replenish the lost water content from our body. With a variety of fruits and vegetables available in the market in this season, you can come up with a myriad of concoctions to cool off in this sultry weather. We can be creative here but we know, not all our experiments turn out to be successful. Right?
