I love working out…you probably can’t tell by looking at me because I also love to eat. 🙂 I workout at least 3x a week so it’s important for me to have a good skincare regime before and after I workout. Many of the studios I go to in NYC already have products but since I change my classes up so much I don’t think is necessarily that great to use different products everyday. These are a few of the products I bring with me.
ALAFFIA CLEANSER: so important to clean your face after a workout (I learned that the hard way) – this charcoal base cleanser really leaves my face clean and fresh – great for all skin types.
ALAFFIA DAY CREAM: coconut oil, turmeric and shea ingredients in this day cream make this the perfect after workout day cream. my skin gets really red after exercising so the coconut oil really calms it and the shea shields it from the harsh cold temps during the winter.
AVENE SUNSCREEN: you’ve heard it a thousand times…always wear sunscreen…even during winter months. this one is light and goes on very easily.
GLOSSIER FACIAL MIST: a face mist is a quick refresher if you aren’t showering at the gym. made with roses and aloe this product won’t only hydrate your face but also make it glow.
BEAUTY CONCEPTS FACE WIPES: i can’t live without my face wipes…i use it before I workout to wipe my makeup off and then after to wipe my sweat. these babies are a life saver.
OUAI WAVE SPRAY: the best beachy wave hair spray. I’m totally obsessed and use it before blow drying my hair for a bit of texture. this won’t leave your hair sticky or stiff…buy the smaller bottle to try it but trust me, you will love it.
ARROJO DRY SHAMPOO: when I’m not in the mood to wash my hair at the gym but need to look presentable, i spray my roots with dry shampoo. this one in particular leaves my hair with more volume and its made with aloe vera and ginger.
