After going through a phase of acne this spring, I decided to get a facial and the eastitician’s first guess of the cause was that I was not cleansing my face right after a workout. If you are the queen of lounging in workout clothes post class like me, don’t forget a travel sized face wash for a post-workout mini facial. KIEHL’s makes my favorite “Ultra Facial Cleanser”, which is good for all skin types and helps avoid clogged pores and acne which can form on your commute home from the spin studio.
As KOPARI suggests, “Empower your pits” post-workout with their coconut oil scented deoterant. Not only is this my favorite aluminium-free natural deoterant but it glides on clear, avoiding the awkward white residue of other brands. Natural deoterant is a easy first switch to natural skin care, and KOPARI is a great place to start. I had trouble at first finding a brand that did not wear off after an hour of use but I found love in a hopeless place with KOPARI. To dive deeper into the world of natural deoterant and learn how to make the switch, check out this “Into the Gloss” article.
If you are like me, sometimes you wish drinking water could be a little more fun and you would rather reach for that Gatorade than your Hydroflask. Keep your skin glowing and healthy by hydrating with a NUUN tablet in your water bottle. Step aside sugary artificial sports drinks, these tablets are low calorie and made from plant-based ingredients. With flavors like Blueberry Pomegranate these tablets make drinking water less a chore and more a treat!

After an intense spin, I leave the studio with dry, sometimes cracked lips. One of the first things I reach to post-workout is this Supergoop! Lip balm. With shea butter and a delicious acai taste, a layer of this balm will automatically nourish dehydrated lips. Each tube also containes SPF 30 protecting those now plump, kissable lips from the sun as you take on your day.
