There are many people who are great fans of exercising under the sun and they are not afraid of the hot skin burning summer sun. Although the temperature is high outside, many people enjoy doing various exercises (mainly running and jugging) outside next to beautiful mother nature. These kind of people normally believe that they get more motivated to train and work harder when they are outside, than being indoor (gym).
However, it is good to know that physical activity outside during hot summer days can also hurt your health, specially your sensitive skin, if you're not correctly protected from the sun. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should remain inactive during this period of the year and gaining weight by becoming lazy. Good thing is that we at getmecreative have created a list of tips for those planning to exercise outdoors in summer.
First and foremost, you should wear lightweight clothing in light and bright colors. It is wrong to wear black clothes and clothes in dark colors because they have the ability to absorb and keep the heat. In the end, you will feel extremely hot and this feeling won’t stop until you take a shower.
Obviously, heavyweight, tight and thick clothing can also increase your body temperature and make you feel uncomfortable under the hot summer sun. So, if you are involved in any kind of outdoor physical activity during the summer period wear comfortable, light clothing so you can allow the air to cool down your skin and body.
Whether you have a sensitive skin or not it is essential for you to put some High UVA sun cream (possibly 30 or 50+), making sure that it covers most part of your body and face. Too much sun light can cause skin cancer, so please make sure that your skin is protected. Also make sure to put on your cool sun glasses to protect your eyes from too much sun light exposure.
The summer days are longer, so it is a good idea to avoid the hottest hours of the day. The best option is to get involved in a morning workout before you go to work or in the evening when the sun is gone. Experts recommend remaining inactive between 10 am and 5 pm. However, don't worry if you can't afford to go out at that time, simply use our guide.
Before you go outside, apply sunblock especially if you are planning to stay outside for a longer period of time. In addition, you should also wear sunglasses if possible.
Finally, don’t forget the importance of staying hydrated because all that sweating can easily make you thirsty.
