If you too want to look fresh AF walking out of the gym, leaving the sweat (and sometimes tears) behind, a solid post-gym beauty routine is a must. Any good post-gym routine starts with great products to help rehydrate, cleanse and brighten your complexion when you’re heading out the door. Ahead, find our top five (and well-deserved!) picks to add to your gym bag for your post-workout.
First things first when it comes to removing any post-gym gunk: Wipe down your face with a moisturizing makeup remover towelette. This will not only get your face ready for makeup, it will also restore and hydrate your skin after your workout.
If you like to wear makeup while you workout, we recommend you remove and refresh your face with the towelettes’ respective counterpart — the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. Use this baby with a cotton pad or swab to remove every last trace of makeup from your face.
Once you’re ready to reapply, start with the Infallible Pro Glow Primer to get your face prepped for face makeup. Bonus, this stuff makes your skin glow through the makeup you apply — leaving you looking dewy, not sweaty.
A waterproof mascara is always a great choice during and post-gym because it can stand up against any extra oils or sweat. Lash Paradise is perfect for this, and it will help wake up and brighten your eyes after a long workout.
Finally, your lips need a little TLC post-gym, and we recommend you look no further than the YSL Tint-in-Balm to add some moisture and shine. Swipe this on to finish off your look, and you’ll be ready to head just about anywhere (and no one will know you’ve come from the gym).
