Suncreen: Opt for a lightweight, hydrating sunscreen to not only protect your skin, but also keep it feeling supple and healthy.

Lip balm: Protect and moisturise your lips with a lip balm containing SPF to guard against sunburn.

Chafe protection: Nothing puts a damper on your mission to move more than getting chafe. Applying some roll-on the skin where you are prone to get chafe can help to reduce the friction. We love the Clere roll-on range, as it is affordable and keeps you feeling fresh for longer.
