BRRRRRING ON THE COLD

-

Don’t love winter temps? We don’t either. But when you’re outside freezing your buns off during a winter run or hike, let this fact warm you up: Repeated activity in the cold increases brown fat, which helps use up stored energy for heat and, in turn, prevents weight gain. Still not convinced to get outside? Try these cute and (warm) gear ideas:

 ??  ?? Locks in body heat under your coat for extra-cold days on the ski slopes but also acts as an outer layer to strip down to when you work up a sweat on milder days. A lightweigh­t layer that can unzip to give you some air.

 ??  ?? A close-fitting layer that keeps body heat in and wicks sweat away.
A soft, breathable fabric with flat seams that feels comfortabl­e on the skin.
