1. Avoid cotton fabric
As cotton is excellent for moisture absorption, it absorbs sweat well. But there is a disadvantage of this fabric; it’s hard to dry. Cotton absorbs sweat while running, resulting in adding some extra “weight”. Furthermore, wearing a wet T-shirt and keeping it wet may lower the body temperature even in the summer. For these reasons,
I would say that an ideal fabric for running gear is polyester, which has sweat-absorbent and quick dry features, instead of cotton.
2. Layer according to the weather conditions and body temperature
In the autumn and winter in particular, we need to know how to coordinate right. We should treat sweating more carefully than the summer; otherwise, we easily lower our body temperature due to sweat. When it gets cold, we opt to put on thicker clothes, but this act actually hinders the control of body temperature, so I wouldn’t recommend it.
Breathability is the key
Basically, I wear a sweat-absorbent quick dry T-shirt and layer a light long-sleeve shirt depending on the temperature outside. If it’s windy or cold, I put on another wind-proof outer layer as well.
When it’s cold, I put on those three items to start, then take one off as the body gets warmed up. A thing we need to bear in mind is to take gear off before actually sweating.
If you sweat and the T-shirt gets wet, your body temperature would be lowered due to sweat so we should be aware of the right timing for controlling the body temperature.
3. Accessories and sunscreen items for better comfort
A running cap helps reduce UV ray exposure in addition to preventing sunburn. Because long hours of sun exposure make you tired, a cap protects you from the sun, reducing physical exhaustion and fatigue.
Arm covers work the same way. They may be thought to simply protect against the cold but there are a variety of summer items that are made of cool touch fabrics with UV protection. You can enjoy the benefits of those items, sun protection and reducing physical exhaustion on a hot sunny day.
We can’t exchange the skin just because it’s damaged; the skin is nothing like an outfit.So use accessories and sunscreen to protect the skin from UV rays and save your energy to enjoy a fun run.
Sunscreen is a must-have for UV protection. It is important to choose an item that is excellent in terms of being sweat/water-proof and smudge-proof because you are exposed to the sunlight for long hours during your run.
ANESSA Perfect UV Skincare Milk offers strong UV protection thanks to its newly improved Aqua Booster EX technology, which enhances the UV protection veil by reacting with sweat or water.
Formulated with skincare ingredients, it moisturizes and treats damaged skin. It spreads smoothly without leaving a chalky, white residue and the skin feels soft and comfortable.
It can be easily removed by general cleansers, no need to use special cleansing form or scrub, which is very useful, isn’t it?
Running gear that offers comfort

Sweat-absorbent quick dry T-shirt
Select a T-shirt with quick sweat-absorbent and evaporation functions.
It helps provide comfort for long hours.
Running pants with pockets
By wearing running pants that have a stretchy pocket around the hip, you can run comfortably as they prevent your personal effects such as snacks, keys or smartphone from jostling around in the pocket while running.
A windbreaker is very useful in the cold weather but it can be bothersome after you take it off. I would recommend a pocketable, portable one in a carry-on bag or lightweight one.
Stretchy jacket with reflectors
This long sleeve jacket allows maximum body movement such as arm swing, etc. while running thanks to its highly stretchy fabric. It has a pocket to keep a smartphone and reflectors that increase visibility at night or in the crowded streets. This jacket is a perfect item for runners.
Compression running tights
These highly functional tights hold the body core in place and support the waist, hamstrings, knees and calf muscles, which are more easily hurt during a run. They feature beautiful streamlined graphic design along the muscle lines, realizing beautiful legs.
