My Post Workout Beauty Products

There’s nothing like a hot shower after a serious workout session but sometimes I don’t have the time – or shower near me – to do just that. And we’ve ALL been there before. That’s when I reach for the following post workout beauty products to keep me going throughout the day:

Face Wipes

These are the first thing I reach for after a workout. I’m loving the Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes because they smell like fresh cucumbers and feel very soft. They’re great for sensitive skin because they’re non-irritating, paraben free, non-comedogenic and – fun fact – even compostable! You could also use them to remove makeup but I just use them to freshen up my face and upper body.

Dry Shampoo

Also known as the best thing that ever happened to your hair. Right now I’m using the Herbal Essence Naked Dry Shampoo and at first I wasn’t a fan of it. When you spray it on it comes out clear, which is great, but also wet. I thought a dry shampoo should be…dry? It does have a very nice cooling effect and feels so refreshing after a serious workout. It smells like citrus mint and makes me feel a whole lot better about my hair. The shampoo does dry after a few seconds but I’ve been more cautious when applying. If you don’t mind a wet spray initially this is a great dry shampoo but I’ll move on to something else once I’ve finished this one.

Deodorant

Obviously. Since I stock up on my Nivea deodorants like a crazy hoarder every time I’m back in Europe, I’m currently using the Nivea Sensitive & Pure Anti-Transparent Roll-On. Phew that’s a long name…I can’t recommend these enough and am still in shock that there are no decent rollerball deodorants in the US. Feel free to leave me a comment if you know of any brands that make them in America. I’m obsessed.

Face Spray

The Caudalie Beauty Elixir is definitely in the “Do I really need this?” category of products but what can I say – it feels great! It has a fresh eucalyptus scent and makes me feel like I just got out of a spa treatment instead of a workout class. Reason enough for me to continue using this beauty.

Body Mist

Once I’ve applied all of the above mentioned products I use a body mist to give myself that last boost of freshness. I don’t really like über sweet scents but I got the Victoria Secret Love Spell Fragrance Mist as a gift and it’s been growing on me. They describe the scent as an “irresistible blend of lush cherry blossom and juicy peach”. Nothing wrong with that!

I realize that I used the word fresh a lot but hey, that’s the point of post workout beauty products! So fresh, so clean…okay I’ll stop now. Do share in the comments below what beauty products you like to use after a workout!
