8 Post-Workout Beauty Products and Tips We Are Obsessed With

Beauty
Fitness

There are millions of products and must-try tips to accompany your workout and wellness routine, but what is truly battle-tested when it comes to a sustainable beauty regimen? You give it your all when it comes to your fitness classes, and what you use should, too. 

From silky smooth skin to feel-good sprays, we asked eight active MINDBODY boss ladies for the inside scoop on what they swear by every time they step out of the studio. 

 

Face the day. 

“My number one beauty rule post-workout is all about cleansing my face. I like to book last-minute fitness classes, but I never have my facewash on hand. That’s why I love Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Facial Cleansing Cloths. They are gentle on my sensitive skin, keep my pores clear and leave my face feeling super clean, no rinsing required!”
- Julia M., Product Manager, Marketing 


 

Keep it clean. 

“From barre to the barbell, you can touch a ton of different equipment everytime you exercise. But how clean is it really? Always remember to wash your hands. It might seem like an easy task, but how many times have you rushed out of class to get somewhere on time? Your skin and your immune system will thank you.”
- Yuki D., Executive Assistant  


 

Get that healthy glow.

“When I am looking to replenish my skin after an intense workout, Elemis Superfood Facial Oil is my secret weapon. It’s lightweight antioxidant and omega-rich concentrated formula keeps my face feeling hydrated, healthy and radiant, without a greasy residue.”
- Lauren T., Product Manager 


 

Try a tonic.

“I like to schedule a variety of fitness classes most days, which means I sweat…. a lot. To keep my skin feeling clean, nourished and hydrated before and after my workout, I invest in a skin spray, like Pretty Athletic’s Workout Glow: Hyaluronic Vitamin Tonic. Featuring natural ingredients like rosewater, avocado, and aloe vera, this refreshing and light tonic makes it easy for me to spritz, wipe and go!  It’s seriously my gym savior.” 
- Lydia C., PR and Content Specialist, EMEA Marketing


 


Love your locks.

“If you don’t wash your hair every day, one good sweat session can have your recent blowout falling a little flat. Dry Shampoo always saves the day. It absorbs oil and keeps my hair feeling flawless. The whole no wash, no worries mantra fits my busy lifestyle and with products like Drybar’s Detox or Batiste Dry Shampoo, my style stays intact.”
- Natalie E., Manager, Product Management   


 


Hydrate your skin.

“All those post-workout showers can really dry out your skin. I swear by Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream. This six-ingredient balm works wonders with it’s all natural ingredients. I like to apply this cream before bed so I can fully reap the benefits of its moisturizing power. This lotion has a cult following for a reason!”
- Devin D., Social Media Manager


 

Invest in underarm armor.  

“I love to sneak a workout in during my lunch break, but I don’t always have time to shower before heading back to the office. My smell good savior that has me feeling confident in back-to-back meetings? Pacifica Coconut Milk & Pineapple Deodorant Wipes. These all-natural, aluminum-free wipes have a subtle scent that is soft on your skin and super effective. Plus, they are biodegradable, so you’re doing Mother Earth a favor, too.”
- Mariah M., Manager, Product Management  


 

Make your own soothing spray. 

“Whether it’s to accompany my yoga practice or add a little *extra* zen to my day, an easy, homemade essential oil spray is key to my workout and wellness routine. I like to make my own with 6 ounces of aloe vera witch hazel water and 5-7 drops each of lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint essential oils. Shaken up in a small glass spray bottle, it’s my instant dose of hydrating calm, no matter where I go or what my fitness goals are.”
- Keana N., Consumer Products Marketing Manager

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
