In this month’s issue, we’ve put together a collection of stories that will hopefully equip you with the tools that you need if camping and outdoor activities are as foreign to you as they are for a city girl like me.
The Skin When you are an outdoorsy girl who enjoys her wilderness adventures, then you should protect your skin more than ever. In ‘Written All Over Your Face’ (page 25), we have care tips for sun-damaged, irritated, dry and acne-prone skin.
The Body You should read ‘Fresh Air That Ain’t’ (page 37) if you love outdoor activities. While we encourage you to take your routine outside, there are some rules that you should abide by if you want a safe and healthy experience.
The Food What better way to celebrate eating outdoors than a picnic? Seeing as how we are subjected to sudden downpours and scorching hot sun all in one day, in ‘Basket Optional’ (page 49), we teach you how to turn even a stormy day into one to roll out the blanket and feast!
The Lesson In our outdoors guide compilation, who better to tell us how to protect ourselves when we are ‘out there’ than Baywatch hottie Alexandra Daddario. She even offers a quick workout plan for a bod that can withstand the elements better in ‘Beach Please’ (page 60).
The Mind While there’s fun in doing all the above in a group and with a partner, I think the biggest adventure that you can have is doing them on your own. In the ‘The Power of One’ (page 54), we offer solutions on how you can pack for a solo adventure.
