Here’s some tips because Summer weather is here. This is a throwback picture when I hiked Big Sur for 18hrs under 90+ degrees weather! That was hot! 🔥🌞 and mostly the trail was exposed by the sun.—
Nature is beautiful, but it’s also possible that by spending some time in nature you’ll leave some damage on your life, your skin that will be less than beautiful. Skin care for summer hiking doesn’t need to be complicated, but a few quick considerations will make sure that you come off the trail looking healthy and outdoorsy, not dehydrated and sun damaged!
1. Tip One: Be careful of your Bug Repellent. We certainly don't expect you to head out into the woods without bug repellent. ... I always have them every hike. I use OFF spray.
2. Tip Two: Stay hydrated by eating your water, if I’ll say drink you’ll just sip hahaha... 3. Tip Three: Sun Block, Sun Block, Sun Block! ... I apply sunblock every 3-4hrs and I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Water Resistant and Non-Greasy Sunscreen Lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF 75... even when I do my long runs I have them. (as you can see on this picture that I’m shimmering because of the sunblock! 😂😂😂 4. Tip Four: Wash your face shortly after a hike... DM me if you want to know my skin products. I don’t have a perfect skin. I am not selling anything just so you know, I just want us outdoorsy peeps not to sacrifice anything. I’ve heard a celebrity just got diagnosed with skin cancer so please be mindful, take care, stay healthy and glowing! #nelldiaries #optoutside #thegirloutdoor #summerweather #skincare #stayhealthy #life #lifestyle #positivity #encouragement #hikers #hiker #hiking #hikerslife #socalhiker #advice #tips #outdoors #outdoorsy #mountaingirls #adventure #explore #california #tbt at Big Sur, California
