Whether you’re following up on a New Year’s resolution or hitting the gym to prepare for that summer beach body, workout season is heating up. But while the long-term results of exercising and getting fit leave you looking hotter than ever, during and right after that workout can be a bit rough on your skin, makeup and hairdo. It’s hard to stay motivated to fit the gym into your schedule if you are worried about being seen by that cute guy from the coffee shop or looking like a wreck going back to work or out with your friends afterward. Don’t let these concerns ruin your fitness goals! Just be sure to pack your gym bag with a few essential beauty products that will allow you to look (and smell!) your best both during and after the workout.
Our Top 4 Gym Beauty Product Must-Haves
- Body Mist/Spray. A refreshing body spray is a soothing, hydrating treat after a hard workout. We love Ahava Dry Oil Body Mistr. Several key ingredients include Jojoba Seed Oil to soften and hydrate the skin, Dunaliella Algae to protect skin from free radical damage and Sesame Seed and Vitamin E oils to help strengthen the skin’s natural protective barriers and give the body a healthy glow. Available in the following scents: original Dead Sea Plants; Cactus & Pink Pepper; Sea Kissed and Prickly Pear & Moringa.
- Dry Shampoo. A good dry shampoo is a must have for refreshing limp hair post-workout. We like Alterna Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Dry Shampoo . This virtually translucent dry shampoo spray absorbs oil, product build-up and impurities without leaving a powdery residue so that you can get back to work or a night on the town. Available in original scent, Sugar Lemon, Sheer Blossom, Mango Coconut or Bamboo Leaf.
- Makeup Remover Wipes. Nothing is worse than heading to the gym straight from work and afterward finding that you look like a raccoon with your eyeliner and mascara running down your face. Remove your makeup quickly and gently with bareMinerals Beauty-To-Go Makeup Remover Wipes. All bareMinerals products are of high quality and beneficial for your skin, and these wipes are no exception. They are alcohol-free and hydrating with no rinsing required.
- Cooling Essential Oil. A great way to cool down after a sweaty workout is to use a little aromatic oil like Keune So Pure Cooling Essential Oil. This blend of essential oils includes organic Mint, Rosemary and Argan oils. It is intended to be added to their hair care products, but can also simply be added to a damp towel to cool and invigorate your hair and scalp.
