Sometimes I even wonder why I buy real clothes, because the majority of my week is spent in my athleisure gear. I love myself a good legging and a cute top that can be worn from a workout class straight to a meeting, errands, or just my favorite coffee shop to sit and get some work done without the fuss of getting all dressed. 

BUT I just recently started to realize how gross and TERRIBLE it is for your skin when you don’t take the time to at least wash your face after a workout…hence me doing a TOTAL upgrade on my Gym Bag Essentials. 

So this post is all about a quick skincare routine for after your workout when you just want to keep running errands, etc. I also included a few things I pack to freshen up my hair and body! 

Everything is done in less than 5 min and leaves you feeling…

This may be TMI; but babes, I am a SWEATER. I love my workouts and I honestly kinda love a good workout that has me sweatin’ out all the yucky stuff that I know my bod does NOT need. 

That being said, I am totally APPROVING all of these products and not just for after a pilates workout or walk around the park I do this even after an hour of boxing or a intense climb class!

Let’s start with the two products that I use to freshen up my BOD

  • a quick re-apply of your favorite deodorant is probably WAY too obvious but hey, I didn’t want to leave it out!
  • Fave Perfume; I do a little spritz on body but also in my hair!

My favorite new healthy deodorant is Origins and my go-to perfume is Flowerbomb

Now let’s tame that hair…

This stuff is DA BOMB. As soon as a let my hair out of the pony I grab my Wet Brush and spray this DIRECTLY onto the brush and the brush through my hair. Helps with static and restyling it.

I just rub a little on my hands and run through hair and tame any fly-aways and also a little on ends so they look smooth.

  • If my hair is like OVER the top crazy, then I also bring a cute scrunchie, baseball cap, or  little hair scarf! Then I do a messy bun, half hair up, or just cover that ‘ish up with a hat!

By The Way

I did a little video and saved it on my IG stories under the, “Beauty” highlight to show you EXACTLY how I use these products after a sweat sesh!

Finally, let’s fix dat face…

but, girl WASH YOUR FACE

  • A quick makeup wipe all over face and neck.
  • Grab a Cotton Pad (when I forget or run out I just ask someone for a tissue) then do some witch Hazel ALL over face and neck. FEELS SOOO FLIPPING GOOD!

I call it my, “ONE MIN FACE”

  • After cleansing, moisturize with a tinted SPF– its quick and easy and you get your sunscreen and a smooth all over coverage!
  • quick eyebrow comb down and curl those lashes…I mean these two steps in themselves go A LONG WAY!
  • Then put on some bronzer, blush and highlight! A good makeup pallet is perfect bc its all in ONE!

a little goes a long  way so even just a quick brush of each to contour and add that little glow will make you feel SO PUT TOGETHER!
