Challenge 47 : Post-Workout Beauty Routine
As health and wellness are at the top of everyone’s New Year’s resolutions, a lot of us are hitting the gym, especially in this cold, chilly weather! If your gym bag has limited space or you are pressed for time, here are some of my beauty tips for your post-workout beauty routine:
Whether we workout or not, perspiration is inevitable. So as part of our beauty routine, we can’t neglect our body odour! For this, I like to use an all-natural deodorant cream by Soapwalla, which I recently discovered at The Detox Market’s pop up shop in Holt Renfrew. It lasts all day and it’s also vegan-friendly!
After a workout, it’s nice to be able to spray a refreshing facial mist, which I’ve been using Miyu Beauty Essence in No. 02. It totally calms and soothes the skin.
For my face, to cut down on a lot of makeup steps and beauty bag space, I will opt for a BB Cream such as Dior’s Hydralife Hydratant Sublimateur BB Creme with SPF 30 in “#1.” It’s like a moisturizer/primer/SPF/foundation-in-one. I find BB Cream will help to even out my skintone, but I still need a little bit of coverup in certain areas of the face, which I turn to Face Atelier’s Ultra Camouflage Duet in Light.
For my lips, I used an organic tinted lip conditioner by Ilia Beauty in Nobody’s Baby. This also doubled as my blush. The creamy texture blends well on my cheekbones with my MAC #190 Foundation Brush.
Quickly, I added a couple coats of mascara using Clinique’s High Impact Mascara for nice volume and filled in my brows with my Deca Brow Pencil in “Dark Brown.”
And lastly, to maintain that healthy post-workout look, I used Benefit’s Watt’s Up! highlighter on my eyelids/browbone, cheekbones, and down the center of my nose to create a nice luminosity on my skin!
