The Essay

Fall in samba should not be reason for neglecting health. This is the medical alert dermatologist and Daniela Hueb, nutróloga of Bauru (SP). According to the expert, it is in this period of relaxation that people leave aside some primordial habits for a healthy life, how to respect the timetables of sun exposure, use sunscreens and intake plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. “And that everything should be linked also to the adoption of a healthy menu,” says Hueb.

To help deal with these four days of revelry, Daniela Hueb has developed a short manual of survival to the Carnival with the 10 rules that must be followed. Check out:
