5 things you should have in your workout wardrobe
When it comes to working out, whether you are a gym regular or just starting a routine, it is important to ensure that you have the right items in your workout wardrobe.
Not only can wearing the wrong clothes while exercising be uncomfortable, it can also be dangerous; especially if you are making use of equipment.
In order to get the most out of your routine it is best to make sure you are wearing clothing that is suitable. Incorrect outfits can restrict movement, which can lead to you performing stretches or exercises incorrectly and injuring yourself.
So, before you hit the gym or start a yoga session, here are the five things that should be in your wardrobe.
Sports bras are different from those that you wear everyday. They offer more support and restrict movement to a minimum in order to make exercising more comfortable. Whether performing a low or high-impact workout, you need to be wearing a sports bra.
Unlike regular bras, a sports bra will cover the entire breast area, keeping them firmly out of the way. This stops them from spilling out mid stretch or moving around too much - which can cause you discomfort or even pain.
We all know that wearing the incorrect shoes can be incredibly uncomfortable and leave you aching for days. But when it comes to working out, the wrong shoes can cause a lot more damage.
Trainers are the best option as they allow for a good level of movement, can be adjusted easily to maintain your comfort and have a good level of grip. They are suitable for a number of different activities and so are a good investment.
When choosing your trainers you should ensure that they fit properly, provide support to your ankles and feel right when you move.
You might think that you can get away with an old top and a pair of tracksuit trousers when working out, but these items really aren't ideal.
When it comes to the best pair of trousers, you need something that is flexible so your movements aren't restricted, warm and aren't too loose.
Leggings are the perfect option as they move with you, meaning they are great for most forms of exercise. You can also get different lengths, which makes them suited for various weather conditions and exercise types.
Vests or tank tops are the best option for exercising. The lack of sleeves is beneficial as it means no part of the top will get in the way and, just like leggings, they move with you. This ensures a good level of movement.
You are able to get vests in a large variety of styles, helping you to find one that you are comfortable in, fits you correctly and keeps you covered no matter what exercises you are doing.
If you do want to go for something with sleeves, choose a fitted top to avoid the issues that loose clothing can create.
Headbands are vital for high impact sports where you are likely to sweat. Not only do they help to keep hair out of your eyes, they also stop perspiration from running into your eyes and hampering your eyesight.
This drastically improves your vision throughout your whole workout and ensures that you don't hurt yourself or anyone else.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
