If April showers bring May flowers, then summer sun brings the heat. But rising temps shouldn't hold you back from doing the outdoor activities you love most. As long as you're geared up and properly prepared, you can have fun, be comfortable, and be safe all summer long.
First, arm yourself with at least SPF 30 or higher — and be sure to wear your sunscreen even on cloudy days and reapply often. Next, reach for a hat and sunnies to help reduce direct sunlight to the eyes. Then make sure you're hydrating properly, because remember: if you're sweating, you're losing water.
And lastly, make sure you're outfitted with warm-weather-ready clothes so your performance doesn't suffer. This means specifically looking for tops and bottoms that are sweat wicking, fast drying, breathable, and lightweight. Need some help narrowing down your summer shopping list?
