We all know the point of working out is to look and feel good, right? Well, it’s kind of hard to do that, when after going to the gym, doing yoga, or whatever your get-fit activity is, you sometimes have to go and be seen in public. Between trying to fit gym time in between classes, or just in your regular schedule, adding “taking a shower” into the mix seems near impossible. Sometimes it seems like it’s easier to just not go than figure out how to make it work. Well, here are five products to help make sure “not looking like a hot mess” in your next class will no longer be your excuse to not go. You’re welcome!
2. No-slip headbands. Working out can be hard enough without having to worry about fly-a-ways or loose strands falling in your face — it makes counting down those final seconds on the treadmill so much harder to see. Which is why no-slip headbands by brands like Lululemon, Bondi Bands, or even good ole fashioned Goody are life savors. One thing to keep in mind, the Goody headbands tend to leave a dent in your hair, so if you plan on letting your hair down, the others may be the better choice.
4. Face moisturizer. Using a moisturizer after you clean off your face with those wipes will help you out a lot in the long run. Depending on how often you go to the gym, all of that rinsing and washing could leave your skin looking and feeling pretty dry. If that isn’t reason enough, ever notice that slightly flushed look you have after working out? Using a moisturizer will keep your skin looking fresh, and doesn’t hide that glow from your hard work.
5. Body spray/deodorant. These ones may seem a little obvious, but don’t over look ‘em. Whatever your deodorant or perfume of choice may be, see if they come in a travel size. If not, test out some new scents and see what you like. This one by Victoria’s Secret doesn’t take up too much room in my bag, and isn’t too overpowering. Even though you may be trying to mask the scent of your hard work, sometimes smelling like you bathed in your perfume can be just as bad.
