It’s no secret that a gym is a place where your body works hard and is really tested for durability. After an intensive training, your beauty needs special recovery. So, we’ve compiled a list of must-have beauty products that will be useful throughout the training and till the very moment you leave the gym. Indeed, the body will be grateful for using these products.
Hydrating facial spray / thermal water
Thermal water is a useful purchase and a must for the fitness club. It can and should be periodically used during training because the skin needs to breathe and get hydrated in the desired degree: it loses a lot of moisture during the workout. Moreover, the product affects the narrowing of pores, reduces redness and eliminates irritation, nourishing the skin with essential micronutrients.
If you are seriously engaged in trainings, you really need to wash your hair after the exercise. Therefore, your beauty arsenal must include a shampoo that is suitable for your type of hair and skin. Fitness is a certain stress for your hair, so you should treat the choice of shampoo and balm with great responsibility. Just like you do at home.
Hair balm and hair mask
The situation is the same. Exhausted during the workout, your hair should be moisturized with a good balm, which smooths the porous areas and facilitates combing. Just like the skin of the face and body, hair loses critical amounts of moisture while you are exercising. Therefore, you cannot go to a fitness club without a hair balm.
A compact comb
You can have a separate mini-comb for the fitness club. It will not take much space in a sports bag. When buying a comb, you should pay enough attention to it: poor choice of a comb can make it unsuitable for use, causing breakage and hair loss and hindering the process of making a hairdo. We recommend choosing the famous Tangle Teezer.
Invigorating or soothing, for sensitive or normal skin, for oily or dry skin… To put it brief, a shower gel should be chosen according to all individual characteristics. Choosing the product must be approached responsibly: it is an important component of making your body beautiful. However, the choice of a shower gel is traditionally paid the least attention.
Even though the workout is over, you must keep in mind that all necessary processes in the body have already started, so your sebaceous glands begin to produce much more secretion. By the way, there is nothing wrong in it: the body gets rid of harmful substances effectively. You just need to be prepared for this, selecting the most resistant deodorants.
Moisturizing body products
As we have already written a few times, body moisture diminishes strongly. Hence, among other things, it is necessary to moisturize the body. The beauty market offers an unprecedented amount of moisturizing creams, lotions and oils, even massage tiles, without which your skin will not feel good. In addition, there are special moisturizing agents for dry areas of the body (for example, the elbow or heel bending). There are also universal types of oils that can be applied to absolutely all areas of the body.
Washing away excessive sebum (the consequences of hard work of the sebaceous glands) and the remains of makeup is much easier if you treat the face with micellar water. Micellar water is good because it does not dry the skin and contains no alcohol, parabens, silicone or perfume. Instead, there are various components, soothing the skin and relieving irritation. It can also be applied to hypersensitive skin around the eyes. All of these advantages make this product extremely competitive on the market among the goods with a similar purpose.
Besides, there are special devices for cleaning the skin, which fit perfectly into the sporty collection of beauty products, especially if you have enough time to steam and prepare the skin in the sauna. Along with cleansing milk, such devices are really able to transform the skin, not leaving any chance of peeling.
After thorough cleansing of the face, irritated sensitive skin needs to be moistened. Even though thermal water retains moisture, it cannot replace cream. Therefore, choosing the appropriate option of face cream, we recommend buying two portions – one for the home and another one for the fitness center. Keep it in a sports bag or in your locker (there should be enough place for other beauty products that will simplify your life greatly).
This product is a lifesaver for fitness as it significantly reduces the time needed to apply make-up. After all, you will definitely need to rush somewhere after fitness, so the stages of preparing for the tone, the tone itself and fixing it are a luxury. BB-cream adapts to the complexion, includes the best qualities of foundation, simplifies the process of applying makeup and does not affect its quality.
Hair care, of course, is important. Fortunately, manufacturers of hair sprays think of us and release mini-bottles that are comfortable to use not only while traveling (in fact, they are created for this purpose), but can also be placed in your sports bag. Of course, this affects the duration of use, so if you have reserved a private locker and do not need to pack the bag from scratch each time, it is better to choose products of the standard size.
Additional products for hair care
Whether you like it or not, you should not overload the sports bag with your beauty arsenal. Moreover, it is not very reasonable, we must always be moderate, including everything connected with the fitness club.
However, you always need to buy “something else”. So, you can opt for an instant hair mask or indelible spray. If your hair is dry and brittle, it is necessary to purchase oil for dry ends or for the entire length of hair. But the most convenient solution is an oil-spray for hair ends.
