Post-workout beauty products just might be the best thing that ever happened to woman-kind. As if the gym selfie we took wasn’t enough, our bodies love to remind everyone that we hit the gym with oily skin, sweat marks, and (use a little imagination here), please. And not everyone has a billionaire budget for post-workout beauty products. Don’t worry; we’ve got your back (and pits) with some affordable gear to get you from workout straight back to the life of a girl boss.
Shea Moisture Soap Wipes – African Black – $5.99
Trust the expert – this one’s a must-have for anyone who’s active, in a rush, and not about to drop $30 on a pack of wipes…
“I usually suggest these to those with kids in sports, or parents that work out between busy days,” says Lenae. “It’s not an end all be all! It is specifically a means to get you from A to B.”
The Shea Moisture Wipes are great for those with oily skin, and they’re a great post-workout beauty product to freshen up until you get to a shower.
Glycolic Acid (Grapefruit) – Mario Badescu – $15
Sweat and oil leads to dreaded breakouts, and Ploscynski has another great post-workout beauty product for this. Mario Badescu’s Glycolic Acid lotion is a great toner after you’ve exfoliated, particularly for oily skin types.
Flower Balm – Winky Lux – $14
Let’s talk hydration. While sweating it out in the sauna (or during your regular gym session) has endless health benefits, the process dehydrates our already worn-out bodies. The solution? Water, duh. But after properly hydrating, be sure to give your lips some love with a soothing balm. The Winky Lux Flower Balm reacts with your skin’s pH levels to create a unique shade of pink, goes on clear, and comes in a refreshing coconut scent. Hashtag you’re welcome.
Face + Body Hydrating Spray – CliniqueFIT- $12
Skin refreshers are a must-have post-workout beauty product. Hydrate your skin with a quick spritz on your face or body; this is also a great way to cool off in between sets! Clinique’s FIT line is geared toward active ladies with dryer skin.
Dry Shampoo – Amika – $10
Let’s not forget the hair, where sweat and grime gathers locks in unsightly ways. Can we take a moment of silence for the top bun? If washing your hair isn’t an option, try the next best thing: dry shampoo. Amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo absorbs all the oil and gunk, and, after a few seconds of massaging, leaves hair refreshed in less than a minute. It’s talc, sulfate, sodium chloride, paraben and artificial color-free, and great even on treated hair!
So don’t let your beauty be the only thing holding you back from an active life. Grab some cleansing wipes, dry shampoo, a flattering lip balm, and toss them in your gym bag. You can thank us later.
