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.
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.
This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.
Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.
If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help page—where they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.
Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.
This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
