What’s In Your Gym Bag: Summer Edition

Summer isn’t “officially” here, but already temperatures are soaring. With heat indexes hitting the 100-degree mark, enjoying your favorite running and cycling trails, or playing outdoor sports can take a toll on your skin and body. The following products are some of my favorites to have on hand during San Antonio summers. Add them to your gym bag to help you beat the heat.

Supergoop Sunscreen

I LOVE lightweight, non-greasy Supergoop for its wide variety of formulas (including a fun foam mousse) and its Super Broad Spectrum protection that protects skin from UVA, UVB and IRA rays. Slather up buttercup!


Baseball Cap

For additional protection, (or to hide sweaty hair) nothing beats a ball cap. I like the Dash and Splash from Lululemon. The sweat wicking swim fabric keeps you cool while the UV protection helps shield you from the sun’s harmful rays. Added bonus: it’s super cute!


Goodwipes Body Wipes

Goodwipes make getting rid of sweat a cinch! They refresh skin on contact with peppermint and tea tree oil, while exfoliating and wiping away dirt and odor. With formulas designed for both men and women, they’re a quick and easy way to cool down, freshen up and feel fabulous.


EO Lip Balm

When it comes to protecting your selfie pout, pucker up to EOS Active Protection Lip Balms. With SPF 30 and yummy flavors like Lemon, and Fresh Grapefruit, they keep lips smooth and kissably soft.


Hydro Flask

I’ve gone through a lot of water bottles, and the Hydro Flask is hands down my favorite. Sure the double wall, vacuum insulation keeps your water icy cold, but what sealed the deal for me was the sports bottle cap (sold separately) that gives you faster, easier access to your H2O on the go! If you’ve ever tried to twist off a cap while road cycling you understand.


Sport Sunglasses

We all love fun, stylish sunnies, but outdoor sports call for something a little more functional than fashion forward. Oakley offers a great selection for both men and woman that feature UV filtering lenses designed to protect the eyes from sun and wind. Comfortable and slip resistant to sweat, they can stand up to all your summer activities.
