Summer Activities and Staying Fresh: Your Guide to a Cool and Fun Season

Summer Activities and Staying Fresh: Your Guide to a Cool and Fun Season

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy as much time as you can outdoors doing your thing solo, with friends and with family. As the temperature rises we might find ourselves wanting to get outdoors without any ideas of what to do or where to go. In this article we’ll have a look at some of our favorite summer activities for the outdoors and how to stay fresh under that hot, hot sun. 


1. Water, Water, Water: Swimming and Water  Sports

Swimming is basically synonymous with summer. Whether you’re at the beach, lake, or pool, taking a dip is our favorite way to cool off. If you’re looking for a new way to approach the water, consider giving the following watersports a try:
  • Paddleboarding: This sport offers a full-body workout while allowing you to explore the water for some me-time, or with your friends and family.
  • Kayaking and Canoeing: Paddle through serene lakes or adventurous rivers alone, with your family, partner or kids.
  • Surfing and Bodyboarding: Is it finally time to take some surfing lessons? Ride the waves and experience the thrill of the ocean.


Pro Tip: Wear lightweight, quick-drying swimwear, always apply waterproof sunscreen to protect your skin, and keep your favorite Play Pits’ natural deodorant handy for when you’re ready to cool off. 

And, if baking soda in deodorant isn’t working for your skin type, we now have a baking soda free version of our beloved deodorant called LOVE. Instead of baking soda we’re using ingredients like Magnesium Hydroxide, Zinc Ricinoleate, Triethyl citrate, alongside the very soothing and nourishing Shea butter + Coconut oil to give you the very best results out there. 

2. Explore Nature: Hiking and Camping

For those who love the great outdoors, summer is the perfect time for hiking and camping. Explore national parks, forests, and trails, walk around a lake or take a walk on the beach.

Staying Fresh Tips:
  • Dress in layers: Wear moisture-wicking clothing to stay dry.
  • Stay hydrated: Carry a reusable water bottle and drink plenty of fluids.
  • Take breaks in the shade: Rest in shaded areas to avoid overheating.
  • Play Pits to the Rescue: Re-Apply your Play Pits deodorant as needed. 
Pro Tip: Play Pits is a full body deodorant which can be used everywhere and anywhere as needed. 

3. Outdoor Fitness: Biking and Running

Summer’s long days provide the ideal opportunity for biking and running in the early mornings, afternoons or after a full day of work. These activities are not only great for fitness but also give you that excuse you need to be outside for longer.

Pro Tip: Schedule your workouts during the cooler parts of the day, such as early morning or late evening, use a cooling towel to stay refreshed and apply your Play Pits deodorant in the areas needed most before your workout.

4. Garden and Grow: Home Gardening

Gardening is one of those soul rewarding summer activities that connects you with the earth. If you have the space for it, grow your own fruits, vegetables, and flowers on a balcony, front or backyard, or community garden. 

Staying Fresh Tips:
  • Garden early or late: Avoid the midday heat.
  • Wear a hat and gloves: Protect yourself from the sun and thorns.
  • Stay cool: Keep a spray bottle filled with water nearby to mist yourself.
  • Relax with Play Pits: Enjoy the natural essential oil scent of your Play Pits deodorant at work. For instance our Queen deodorant will give you a splash of a sweet and sultry fusion of Lemon, Rich Amber, and Jasmine. 

5. Enjoy Local Events: Festivals and Farmers' Markets

Summer is the season for festivals, fairs, and farmers' markets. Enjoy some fresh baked goods, get some music in and treat yourself to some healthy local produce. 

Staying Fresh Tips:
  • Dress light: Opt for breathable fabrics like cotton and linen.
  • Wear Sunscreen:If you’re planning to walk around and spend the day outdoors, we always recommend protecting your beautiful skin with sunscreen.
  • Stay in the shade: Seek out shaded areas to rest and recharge.
  • Stay Confident: with Play Pits on your side (under your arms and anywhere else you need for that matter!), enjoy your time outdoors knowing you’re smelling your very best. 

6. Stay Cool at Home: DIY Projects and Crafts

On those days where the heat is just too intense, enjoy DIY projects and crafts indoors. Try new recipes from your farmer’s market activity, or start a new hobby. Cool down with delicious summer recipes. Enjoy refreshing salads, smoothies, and ice-cold desserts. Take advantage of seasonal fruits like watermelon, berries, and citrus fruits to stay refreshed and healthy.

Staying Fresh Tips:
  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water and enjoy ice-cold beverages like homemade lemonades and iced-teas.
  • Take cool showers: Refresh yourself with a quick, cool shower during the hottest parts of the day and enjoy your Play Pits Detox Soap Bar


Summer is a time to make the most of the warm weather and enjoy your time outdoors with all that Vitamin D exposure. Whether you're swimming, hiking, biking, gardening, hitting up local events, or staying cool indoors, there are so many ways to stay fresh and enjoy. You can enjoy some alone-time, or make it a family and friend-filled summer this year. Whatever activity you decide to go for, know that Play Pits always has your back (and anywhere else you might work up a sweat!) 

We’ve rebranded and revamped our deodorants, which now feature the awesome powerhouse Tocopherol. Tocopherol is a powerful antioxidant that extends natural oils
