Summer Skin Protection: Handful Summer Essentials

on July 20, 2021

Summer Essentials

Handful Activewear knows you have a full schedule this summer; hiking, gardening and living your best life outdoors. With the summer come a few essentials to keep your body healthy, happy and thriving throughout all of your summer activities.

Sunscreen

We all love to soak up the sun, but it’s important to do so with sunscreen. Thankfully, sunscreen technology has evolved with sophisticated formulas that are breathable, comfortable on the skin and easy to reapply. For example, Banana Boat has a Dry Balance formula that smells like bananas, is breathable, and we can vouch that it lasts through a sweaty, 2-hour+ half-marathon. Dermatologist recommend using a sunscreen with at least 30 SPF, especially for the face. 

Hydro Flask or Re-Usable Water Bottle

Staying hydrated during this incredibly hot summer is crucial. Bottles like the Hydro Flask have insulated properties that keep your water cool for up to 24 hours. Choosing to bring your own reusable water bottle on your adventures also helps reduce plastic waste from single-use water bottles. 

Wide-Brimmed Hats

Your scalp needs protection from the sun just as much as your face and body - That’s why a wide-brim hat or the ever-trendy bucket hat is an essential item for our staff at Handful. Both are wide-brimmed and offer protection for your sensitive scalp and face. 

Umbrella / Pop Up Tent

This summer, the country has seen temperatures soar across the country. You have your sunscreen, water and hat but depending on the activity, consider bringing along an umbrella or pop-up tent to stay cool in the shade. Sunscreen and staying hydrated are important, but seeking shade from the heat and sun is also key to making your time outdoors enjoyable. 

Proper Footwear

Poor-fitting shoes can cause blisters, and that’s the last thing you need when hiking by the river; you also want to make sure you can take them of easily to cool off quickly. Tevas and Chacos are popular options for their durability and versatility in and around the water. Whichever footwear you choose, make sure they fit well to minimize the chance of foot injury this summer.
