6 Skincare Must-Haves For Before, During & After Your Workout

When you’re a self-confessed gym addict, even lockdown can’t stop you from getting your fix. From online HIIT sessions and makeshift dumbbells to fitness apps and isolation friendly jogging routes, now is the time to get creative with your workout regime if you want to maintain your gym obsessed status.

If you’re using your time in isolation as an opportunity to ‘glow up’ (or counteract your increased trips to the fridge) it’s a good idea to invest in some skincare must-haves that are sure to compliment, improve, and accelerate your fitness goals. 

Read on for our breakdown of the essential products to use before, during, and after your workout.


Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleansing Water

When you exercise, your temperature increases and your body produces sweat to cool you down, both of which lead to open pores. Add a face full of makeup into the mix and those open pores are likely to become clogged, harbouring bad bacteria and causing breakouts. Prevent this from happening by removing all traces of makeup, dirt, and grime with Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleansing Water before you workout.


As our gym instructors keep telling us, if we’re not breaking a sweat whilst we squat, we’re probably not working hard enough and won’t get the results we desire. If concerns of excess perspiration and giving off unpleasant odours are keeping you from reaching your fitness goals, fear not. We’ve got just the thing: Mario Badescu Deodorant. This unassuming white bottle holds the power to keep you smelling fresh and feeling clean from your first burpee to your last. Now the excuses are out of the way, drop and give us twenty!



Has lockdown got you addicted to YouTube yoga classes yet? Us too. One of the most difficult things about practicing yoga at home can be creating a calm and tranquil atmosphere to do it in. Luckily, we’ve discovered a few tricks to help you regulate the energy in your workout space, like the Psychic Sisters Healing Crystal Set. Surround your mat with Amethyst, Purple Angle Aura, Clear Crystal, Rose Quartz, Green Fluorite, and Amethyst Fluorite to keep you in the right headspace whilst you stretch.


The Sunday Rain Sleep Easy Pillow and Room Mist is another way to keep your at-home gym zone happy. Spritz this blend of ten essential oils around the room to create an uplifting boost for the senses whilst you exercise.



Workout done? Jump in the shower with Yes To Activated Charcoal Bar Soap. Infused with active charcoal, almond oil, and tea tree this supercharged soap leaves your skin super clean without stripping it of essential moisture.

CeraVe Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum

You may have downed a bottle of water during your session but don’t forget to also rehydrate your skin post shower with the CeraVe Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Add a couple of drops to your favourite moisturiser to give your complexion a well needed boost of healthy hydration. Oh hey, glowing skin.
