Safe Summer Workouts

Safe Summer WorkoutsBy Dr. Mao Shing Ni

Yes, of course, we can have great workouts in the summer but when we get really hot, our body routes blood away from our organs and muscles and circulates it through our skin. This increases the amount of cooling sweat we produce but at the same time, can seriously dehydrate us. When humidity is high, our sweat cannot evaporate properly so our core temperature rises even higher.

Ask Dr. MaoQ: I’ve been hearing about dry brushing. What does it do exactly?

A: Centenarians have long touted the popular technique of dry brushing the skin for its anti-aging benefits. Our skin is the largest organ in the body—it is the outmost layer of defense against pathogens like bacteria and viruses, so it only makes sense that if we take proper care of our skin, it will take care of us.

Our lymphatic system helps us rid our body of wastes that may be detrimental to our health and affect the appearance of our skin. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, unhealthy lifestyle habits, even chemicals in the environment, contribute to a buildup of toxins that can ultimately lead to weight gain, poor health, aging skin, and fatigue.
