Outdoor workouts are a (literal) breath of fresh air. Weather permitting, there's nothing like clearing your head with a run, a walk, a hike, or a HIIT or yoga class in the park. Unfortunately, the best part — the sunshine! — is also the biggest downside. As much as we might savor the warm sunlight, our skin isn't quite on the same page. Sunburn isn't a good look, but it's even worse for your health, and getting a tan isn't any better. Both light- and dark-skinned people can develop skin cancer, and any time your skin changes color after sun exposure — tan or burn — your risk of skin cancer increases.
That means it's a really good idea to wear protection when you're exercising outside: lathering up the sunscreen and wearing a hat or visor to protect your face. Luckily, there are lots of lightweight, breathable choices that won't get sweaty and uncomfortable on a hot run or hike. And frankly, these seven hats are so versatile, we'd rock them sitting by the pool or on the beach, too.
