8 Post-Workout Beauty Products and Tips We Are Obsessed With

Beauty
Fitness

There are millions of products and must-try tips to accompany your workout and wellness routine, but what is truly battle-tested when it comes to a sustainable beauty regimen? You give it your all when it comes to your fitness classes, and what you use should, too. 

From silky smooth skin to feel-good sprays, we asked eight active MINDBODY boss ladies for the inside scoop on what they swear by every time they step out of the studio. 

 

Face the day. 

“My number one beauty rule post-workout is all about cleansing my face. I like to book last-minute fitness classes, but I never have my facewash on hand. That’s why I love Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Facial Cleansing Cloths. They are gentle on my sensitive skin, keep my pores clear and leave my face feeling super clean, no rinsing required!”
- Julia M., Product Manager, Marketing 


 

Keep it clean. 

“From barre to the barbell, you can touch a ton of different equipment everytime you exercise. But how clean is it really? Always remember to wash your hands. It might seem like an easy task, but how many times have you rushed out of class to get somewhere on time? Your skin and your immune system will thank you.”
- Yuki D., Executive Assistant  


 

Get that healthy glow.

“When I am looking to replenish my skin after an intense workout, Elemis Superfood Facial Oil is my secret weapon. It’s lightweight antioxidant and omega-rich concentrated formula keeps my face feeling hydrated, healthy and radiant, without a greasy residue.”
- Lauren T., Product Manager 


 

Try a tonic.

“I like to schedule a variety of fitness classes most days, which means I sweat…. a lot. To keep my skin feeling clean, nourished and hydrated before and after my workout, I invest in a skin spray, like Pretty Athletic’s Workout Glow: Hyaluronic Vitamin Tonic. Featuring natural ingredients like rosewater, avocado, and aloe vera, this refreshing and light tonic makes it easy for me to spritz, wipe and go!  It’s seriously my gym savior.” 
- Lydia C., PR and Content Specialist, EMEA Marketing


 


Love your locks.

“If you don’t wash your hair every day, one good sweat session can have your recent blowout falling a little flat. Dry Shampoo always saves the day. It absorbs oil and keeps my hair feeling flawless. The whole no wash, no worries mantra fits my busy lifestyle and with products like Drybar’s Detox or Batiste Dry Shampoo, my style stays intact.”
- Natalie E., Manager, Product Management   


 


Hydrate your skin.

“All those post-workout showers can really dry out your skin. I swear by Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream. This six-ingredient balm works wonders with it’s all natural ingredients. I like to apply this cream before bed so I can fully reap the benefits of its moisturizing power. This lotion has a cult following for a reason!”
- Devin D., Social Media Manager


 

Invest in underarm armor.  

“I love to sneak a workout in during my lunch break, but I don’t always have time to shower before heading back to the office. My smell good savior that has me feeling confident in back-to-back meetings? Pacifica Coconut Milk & Pineapple Deodorant Wipes. These all-natural, aluminum-free wipes have a subtle scent that is soft on your skin and super effective. Plus, they are biodegradable, so you’re doing Mother Earth a favor, too.”
- Mariah M., Manager, Product Management  


 

Make your own soothing spray. 

“Whether it’s to accompany my yoga practice or add a little *extra* zen to my day, an easy, homemade essential oil spray is key to my workout and wellness routine. I like to make my own with 6 ounces of aloe vera witch hazel water and 5-7 drops each of lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint essential oils. Shaken up in a small glass spray bottle, it’s my instant dose of hydrating calm, no matter where I go or what my fitness goals are.”
- Keana N., Consumer Products Marketing Manager

Not Too Cheesy: Vegan "Cheese" Recipes That Taste Like The Real Thing

Recipes

Nutrition

We all love cheese. And if you don’t love cheese, well, you just haven’t found the right kind for you. If you’re unlucky like me, however, cheese does not like you. Thankfully, we live in 2020, where plant-based cheese recipes are alive and well.

I have been dairy-free for a few years, and cheese is truly the food group I miss the most. As much as we try, we sometimes just can’t get vegan cheese to taste like the real thing. So, I recruited my dairy-loving, cow-consuming friends to be my taste-testers. Their brutal honesty helped me create some “fake” cheese that can actually compete with the real stuff.

Goat "Cheese" Ball

Did you know you can make mouth-watering “fake” cheese with macadamia nuts? Yes, macadamia nuts. If you’re craving that creamy consistency but your stomach isn’t down for dairy, try out this recipe inspired by Simple Vegan Blog
