Summer is in full swing and for me, that means moving my workouts outdoors. I love getting out of the house, working from home has some cons, being couped up in the house all winter does nothing for your spirit. I’ve been taking my workouts outside soaking in the sun, even heading over to the park to hit up some of the hiking trails. I’ve got a few everyday essentials that I make sure to have with me and also at home for once I’m finished.
Aside from hiking trails, the park that I got to has a fitness trail with different exercise stations, a playground area, and a couple sports fields. All great for my everyday workouts because I can easily switch things up at any given moment depending on what I’m looking to do for the day. However, everything is right out in the open for the most part, directly under the sun with little to no tree coverage.
Sunscreen, a must have. I am super pale, I don’t tan easily, so any length of time in the sun ends in me looking like a huge tomato if I don’t wear sunscreen. Especially on my arms. I set a little reminder on my phone so that I remember to apply it. Sun protection doesn’t need to include sticky and heavy sunscreen. Instead, a simple addition to a beauty regimen can guarantee a carefree day of indulging in Vitamin D. I’m obsessing over the NEW Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30. I find that with some sunscreens, if I wear them and then head outside to workout and begin to sweat, I get really sticky and it’s just not cute. I don’t have to worry about that with this, it’s perfect. Containing hydrating ribbons of luxurious silk protein and Shea Butter, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen pampers the body with a breathable formula that delivers a weightless, airsoft texture helping protect us from the sun. I suffer from dry skin, so finding a sunscreen that is not only protecting me and keeping my skin safe but also moisturizing my skin, is a huge bonus for me.
Another one of my essentials is my Fitbit, I’m in a few weekly challenges with some fellow bloggers, so if I’m getting a workout in, I want to be sure I have it. It’s actually been super motivational, trying to outstep the other gals has become super fun between all of us. I also grab my headphones because there is no way that I can do any sort of workout without them.
I think it’s a given that sunglasses should also be on the Outdoor Workout Essentials list, especially for any outdoor activity, right? And I also have an essential that works for me at home after any time in the sun. Like I said, I have dry skin, I need all the moisture I can get. I’ve been using Hawaiian Tropic’s Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer whenever I get home from spending any time in the sun. The lotion is infused with an Island Mango fragrance and special light-reflecting pigments to help skin appear beautiful, radiant and glowing. Island Mango, is my jam, it smells amazing. Not only does it soothe your skin after extended sun exposure but it also softens it and leaves your skin looking extra radiant. It’s a must for me after a workout.
