Now that spring is here, we have the opportunity to take a break from driving by walking to work. April 3 is National Walk to Work Day so it’s the perfect time to start a new, healthier habit. Walking or exercising daily has numerous benefits for the skin but it’s important to protect your complexion when you are outside.
Many people do not have the option of walking to work but there are other ways you can participate. You can bike to work or make a commitment to walk for thirty minutes every day on your lunch break or after work. Incorporating walking into your routine is a great way to make sure that you exercise daily.
Anytime you exercise outside, you need to wear sun protection. EltaMD UV Sport Water Resistant Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 defends against both UVA and UVB rays and will not fade or smudge when you sweat. To increase your sun protection, you can also take Heliocare Sun Protection Pills daily. These supplements improve the body’s response to damaging UV rays and should be used along with a daily sunscreen.
On your daily walk, wear loose, protective clothing to reduce your exposure to the sun. You should also wear a wide-brimmed hat to prevent UV rays from reaching your complexion. Sunglasses help protect the delicate skin around the eyes from sun damage.
Once you get to work, you may be slightly sweaty so you should carry products with you to refresh your look. Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – Aerosol (Travel Size) absorbs excess oil on your scalp to revive hair. You can also use Eminence Green Tea & Hemp Blotting Tissues to absorb oil and sweat on your complexion. Then just apply a light layer of your favorite powder and you are ready for the day.
