To make it happen, we’ve curated a list of essentials to streamline your post-gym beauty kit and keep you feeling good from head to toe long after your workout is over. Scroll for the deets.      

Alpha H Triple Action Cleanser

Exercise can both positively and negatively impact your skin. The increased blood flow gives you that post-gym glow (love) but leaving your makeup on whilst you work out or failing to properly wash your face afterwards can result in clogged pores, excess bacteria, and blemishes. Wash away all traces of makeup, oil, dirt, and sweat with Alpha H Triple Action Cleanser. This gentle gel cleanser possesses powerful antibacterial benefits and leaves your skin fresh, clear, and glowy. It can also be used in the shower, saving valuable time and getting you on that motorway and on your way to work before the dreaded rush hour traffic hits.

Gallinee Prebiotic Hydrating Face Cream

Downed a bottle of water during your spin class? Good job, but don’t forget to give your skin a drink too. Prebiotic face creams like this one from Gallinee replace any good bacteria that’s been stripped away during cleansing, as well as giving your skin a much-needed hit of hydration.  

Ho Karan Natural Power Deodorant

Ho Karan Natural Power Deodorant is enriched with organic hemp oil to neutralise odours and soothe the skin. Natural deodorants contain plant-based moisturisers, making them perfect for sensitive skin as they’re less harsh and leave the underarms soft, smooth, and smelling great, minus the irritation. Trust us, this effective deodorant deserves a permanent spot in your gym bag.  

Skin Gym Comb Rose Quartz

Swap your regular hairbrush for a Skin Gym Comb Rose Quartz to really amp up your wellness game. Rose quartz is known to ease tension, stress, and anxiety, so combing this through your hair daily will relax your scalp and tame your hair and leave it tangle-free. A post-swimming essential.  

Signature CBD Muscle Recovery & Joint Support

If you’re no stranger to a post-workout protein shake, you’re gonna love Signature CBD Muscle Recover & Joint Support. The carefully chosen active ingredients (ft. CBD) help to reduce muscle pain and soreness, as well as supporting a healthy immune system. Place three drops under your tongue, hold for sixty seconds, then swallow to speed up your recovery process.

Revolution Skincare Superfruit Essence Spray

Show off your yoga skin way after you’ve finished stretching with the Revolution Skincare Superfruit Essence Spray. Enriched with brightening blueberry extract, this antioxidant-rich spray is the perfect way to refresh and stay cool after sweaty gym sessions.

R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo

If you’re an early exerciser, you’ll know the struggle of trying to wash, dry, and style your hair before your 9am meeting all too well. Remove the stress from your morning by spraying your hair with R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo instead. Instantly soaking up excess oil, your tresses are left looking fresher, cleaner, and more voluminous. Sweaty hair, see ya later.

Mario Badescu Rose Hand Cream With Vitamin E

If you ask us, hard skin and callouses on your hands is a sign that you’re a girl/boy boss that’s lifting some seriously heavy weights. However, if you prefer to keep your hands soft and callous-free outside of the gym, invest in a pair of weightlifting gloves and some Mario Badescu Rose Hand Cream With Vitamin E. Light and fast-absorbing, the nourishing cream will condition and hydrate your hands to keep them silky smooth, no matter how much you deadlift.
