We’re all about #noexcuses at Women’s Health so if you are playing the dating game don’t let it get in the way of your workout routine. Go from sweaty to sophisticated in next to no time with our go-to guide.
First things first when you are out of your power shower use a hairdryer on cool to eliminate the last of your sweaty tendrils. When dry apply dry shampoo to the roots for extra volume. Depending on your workout and hair type work with a natural wave or work your hair into a messy “I-didn’t-even-try-but-this-actually-took-10mins” bun.
Don’t just opt for high-performance activewear upgrade you beauty kit. “When your body heats up during exercise blood vessels open up more to release heat, adding to that rosy glow,” says dermatologist Dr Natasha Cook. Optimize your post-workout glow with CliniqueFIT’s brand new range, their Post-Workout Mattifying Moisturiser and Neutralizing Face Powder will help reduce that sweaty sheen and give you an even skin tone. Add extra volume to your lashes with CliniqueFIT’s sweat-proof, smudge-free and waterproof 24-hour mascara.
Once you’ve cooled down and your body has stopped sweating apply a tinted moisturiser for a healthy natural-looking glow. Avoid the temptation to apply permanent fake tans as they could stain your clothes and can often be quite stinky – a potential date night disaster!
Whilst it’s important to freshen up before you head from the barre to the bar, unlike your burpees be careful not to go overboard. Mist your perfume into the air and walk through it to avoid a pungent OD.
Plan ahead and lay off the garlic salad dressing at lunch. Post-sesh brush your teeth or use breath freshening strips before your rendezvous for squeaky clean pearly whites all night long.
Follow these simple steps and you’ll be pilates to party ready faster than ever before!
