Because you're probably not drinking enough water (especially as
the weather warms up), put a refreshing twist on your regular glass of H2O with Tetley's Cold Infusions tea bags. This tea is made specifically to be brewed in cold water — so you can pop one of these fruity, pyramid-shaped bags straight into a glass or jug of water for a naturally delicious way to hydrate.
Cold Infusions come in five very summery flavours — our pick is the brand new Mango & Turmeric — and are caffeine-free, with no added sugars, sweeteners, artificial flavourings or colourings. Brew for five to seven minutes and throw in a few ice cubes for guilt-free refreshment.
Available from all good supermarkets, why not buy a box for $5 to find your favourite flavour?

Mini Massage Ball, $8 from Kmart
Strappy heels, slides and even your summer staple, thongs, can be damaging to your feet. If you've spent most of the year
working barefoot from home, it's time to start paying your tootsies some attention.
Investing in a small, spiky massage ball for a daily foot massage has surprising benefits, from helping to strengthen ankle and foot muscles, reducing pain from flat feet, and improving circulation. They're a simple, affordable health hack — your podiatrist will thank you!

Wear sunscreen every day — that's it, that's the whole tip! It's the one piece of skincare advice that applies to every skin type, every season, and the only true beauty must-have.
And while the best SPF is the one that you'll wear, great formulations don't have to be expensive. The iconic Ultra Sheer Face & Body range by Neutrogena is oil-free and non-comedogenic, so it won't clog your pores, and dries to a beautiful matte texture that won't leave you feeling like a greaseball.
Best of all, it will only cost you $10 from Chemist Warehouse.

Sometimes it's the smallest changes that make the biggest difference. So if you
really want to make the most of each and every day this summer, you need to monitor and limit your screen time (if you're not already).
For iPhone users, the built-in Screen Time feature on the iOS 12 makes it easy to set up time limits and warnings. But even if you're not an Apple user, there are lots of great, universal apps that will help you
break your smartphone habit for free.
The reward: improved sleep, a more present state of mind, and less time lost in the scroll! Win-win-win.
