Gym Bag Beauty Essentials

How to pack a good looking punch.

Sports keep you fit, they are fun and make you feel good in your skin. Gym bag essentials? Yoga mat, bottle of water and a towel. Don’t forget your essential cosmetic products that will help rejuvenate your skin before and after a training session, plus refresh and reinvent your entire day.

Stretch before training

The prep of skin is important before training. Think of it like stretching. The body needs a good warm up before an intense workout, and so does the skin. Gym or an outdoor session? Each environment requires different skin care. Prior to exercise, do not use any greasy creams or perfumes, as they may feel uncomfortable while sweating.

What is acceptable is water-based creams, gels or fluids. Outdoors, the sun’s rays are intensified by the sweat on our skin. Don’t refrain from playing sports outside, but to prevent skin aging, sunburn and skin cancer always apply a sunscreen in any form you prefer. Specially designed products for athletes provide adequate and reliable protection from the sun.

Sport and makeup? Not an unlikely combo!

Some women really like to wear makeup, even in the gym or while doing yoga, and that’s totally OK. Contrary to popular belief, makeup does not automatically cause pimples and bad skin while doing sports. But you have to use the right products. Workout makeup is now a thing.

If you want a little coverage, apply a very lightweight base or tinted moisturizer. Be careful because it can clog the pores. Another way to wear a base without actually wearing a ton of foundation is to just cover blemishes, pimples, redness and dark circles with a concealer and blend the rest of the product left on the sponge or brush on other parts of the face. Your makeup should be resilient to sweat.

Good news for fitness fans

Sport is healthy for the skin. Regular exercise is essential to provide the skin with nutrients and to give it a radiant and fresh look. After training, our body is better supplied with blood, yet our skin needs special care to compensate for the exposure to sun, sweat and dirt. A lukewarm shower about 15-20 minutes after exercise is ideal to cleanse the skin and open the pores for deeper penetration of products. For cleaning, it is best to use pH-neutral, mild and soothing shower gels. Ingredients, such as mint or lemon, have an invigorating effect and provide an extra kick of freshness after exercise. Then, depending on the skin type, a suitable moisturizer should be applied since open pores are particularly receptive to nourishing active ingredients. About 20 minutes after your shower, apply a mild deodorant. Pick a unisex fragrance for an extra fresh touch.

Drink plenty of water and adapt your diet to the needs of the sport. Supplements such magnesium, for example, can be taken by athletes and regulars to the gym to prevent cramping and contribute to making sufficient muscle.
