Extreme heat is hitting Florida and as we head into summer and Memorial Day weekend, staying hydrated and sun safe is top of mind.  

Liquid I.V. 

  • Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier® has 3x the electrolytes of the leading sports drink, and 8 vitamins and nutrients in every convenient individual stick.  
  • To hydrate better than water alone, simply add to 16 oz of water.  
  • Available in Hydration Multiplier® and Hydration Multiplier® Sugar-Free, and in summer flavors like Tropical Punch, Strawberry Lemonade and Sugar-Free Peach, superior hydration is as convenient as it is delicious.  


Melanoma Research Alliance 

  • The Melanoma Research Alliance and the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention want to raise awareness about the importance of skin cancer prevention through their “Don’t Fry Day” campaign. 
  • This Friday, May 24th, has been designated as “Don’t Fry Day” – a national effort to encourage everyone to protect their skin as they head outdoors.   
  • Beyond Don’t Fry Day, a few more evergreen sun-safe tips from the MRA include:  
    • Never intentionally expose your skin to the sun’s rays  
    • Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily  
    • Reapply at least every 2 hours, and more if you’re sweating or swimming 
    • Apply one ounce to your body (at least the size of a shot glass) and about 1/3 of a teaspoon (about the size of a nickel) to the face  
    • Wear sun-protective clothing, hats and sunglasses  
    • Avoid peak UV rays, particularly between 10am to 4pm
