With the arrival of summer weather, starting a new training routine is usually easier due to more sun, more light, more opportunities to go outside, and also more time spent at the beach. In other words, there’s no better time to get back in shape. Whichever activity you choose, chances are you will be spending much more time under the sun, and breaking a sweat. To help you accomplish as much as possible in as much comfort as possible, we asked our good friend and collaborator Mia St-Aubin, founder of Move Collective to help us pick some of the best products to accompany you during your training sessions.
First things first, choose a deodorant (that actually works). You may be wondering if you should opt for an antiperspirant, but our advice is to go with the deodorant as it allows your sweat to cool your body during exercise. Luckily for you, ours are available in 4 fragrances plus an unscented version. Depending on your preferences, you can choose between the stick or spray formula. There is definitely something for everyone in the deodorant department! Our chemical-free and aluminum-free deodorants will work wonders, helping you feel great and letting you focus on your exercise.
Chances are your new habits will make you spend lots of time under the sun, which means you will need to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Our mineral sunscreens are made with organic and safe ingredients. Not only are they protecting you without the use of chemicals, but they also help keep your skin hydrated. If that is not a win-win, we don’t know what is.
Fast-forward to the end of your sweat session. You are proud of yourself, feeling good, energized and ready to hit the shower. Guess what? We can help with this self-care moment too! Made with cold-pressed, locally harvested organic sunflower seed oil, our bar soaps are rich in antioxidants (vitamin E and carotenoids) and skin moisturizing omegas. Blended with coconut oil for a gentle silky lather leaving your skin feeling fresh and soft, they are ideal for the most sensitive skin types. Add a moisturizer or a body lotion to the mix and you’re all set for another amazing day!
Training has never sounded (or smelled) so good! It’s time to go outside and enjoy the sun. Also, make sure to visit Mia’s Instagram account for the best tips and tricks when it comes to your training life.
