I Sunburn Easily — Here's All the UV-Ready Gear I'm Shopping For My Summer Workouts
In the summer months, there's nothing I love more than a workout outside. Whether it's yoga in the park, a casual run around the block, swimming, hiking a new trail, or kicking the soccer ball around with friends, I'm all about moving and sweating in the great outdoors.
But as much as I thrive outside, I'm hyperaware of sun safety. I'm on top of my UV-protection game not only because it's a part of general skin and healthcare (although that is my number one motivation!), but also because I burn very easily and would rather not be in pain all summer long. Thankfully, there are a number of ways to keep harmful — and painful — rays from causing damage and ruining my summer vibes. Scope out the eight UV-ready items I'm adding to my shopping list this summer.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Sport Sunscreen
You better believe sunscreen is an essential for any outdoor workout. La Roche-Posay Anthelios Sport Sunscreen ($30) is a great option for those breaking a sweat outside or even hanging out around water thanks to its broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and water-resistant formula.
UA Fusion Pants
For those hikes, walks, or other summer favorites, the UA Fusion Pants ($65) are a great, comfortable choice. The cinched crop, elastic band, and ventilated paneling all make it a solid option for outdoors-lovers. Toss in UPF 50+ sun protection and you're all set.
UA TUNED™ Road Propel Sunglasses
Don't think sun safety ends with your skin. Keep those peepers protected too with UA TUNED™ Road Propel Sunglasses ($100), which block 100 percent of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. In addition, expect a no-slip grip and distortion-free vision while you hit the trails.
Brush on Block Translucent Mineral Powder Sunscreen
Although we all know to reapply SPF, it's easier said than done. But with Brush on Block Translucent Mineral Powder Sunscreen ($32), it's actually super easy to up that sunblock game with just a few swipes of the brush. Now there's truly no excuse not to reapply while you take your water break.
UA Sun Armour 1/2 Sleeve
The dropped hem and generous fit of the UA Sun Armour 1/2 Sleeve ($30) make it a cozy and breathable option for hiking, biking, walking, and general summer activity. On top of the fit and quick-drying material, this top features built-in UPF 40 sun protection.
