An incredible workout or great run can leave you feeling as though you can really take over the world and if it’s a not so good run – which we all experience every so often, you still need a pick-me-up to get you going and excited to continue with your day, with that little extra glow to it. Your body and your face also go through a fair share during your workout, so consider the following to ensure that you look and feel phenomenal in every way. Keep in mind that any bad post-workout skincare habits can certainly lead to clogged pores, acne, blackheads, or even uncomfortable itchiness.
Cleansing wipes – a great way to cool off a bit post workout, until you get a chance to freshen up at home or at the gym.
- Epsom salts in a warm bath – these salts are easily absorbed through the skin and can help reduce inflammation and soothe any minor sprains you could experience
Body scrub – a combination of cleansing, exfoliation and massage that provides incredible benefits to skin including boosting circulation.
- Facial mist – these are great at hydrating your skin, especially with our dry Winter months. The key ingredients to look out for are lavender and rosemary which have incredible effects
Something to munch on
- Protein shake
- Trail mix – preferably one that has more fruit than nuts
