When it comes to style and getting in shape, I like to look good. You never know who you are going to meet while you are working up a sweat. I have meet clients, new friends, and have run into old friends all while working out.
Now, don’t get it twisted – I am not one of those workout beauty queens. Fresh blowouts and a full face of makeup aren’t in the cards for me. My beauty routine has to work with my workout. I mean, the workout is the whole point, right?
I’ve got 5 tips that will have you looking good and feeling good in no time.
Before heading off the gym I make sure I am properly moisturized. If you are showing any kind of skin you don’t want it to be scaly. A non-scented lotion on your body and a tinted moisturizer on your face is the perfect solution. If you want to look extra toned in your tiny tank try a lotion with bronzer to “sculpt” those guns.
I am showing off my “guns” in this great Splice tank from the Twist collection. The V-neck is universally flattering (aka anyone can wear it) and the pink flatters my skin tone making giving me a make-up free glow.
Hair in your face doesn’t work during a workout. I always bring an adidas headband or two to tame any wild hairs. For bonus style points, wrap them around your wrist for a makeshift bracelet.
There is nothing worse than putting on an adorable pair of cropped workout pants and realized you forgot to shave your legs. I don’t know about you but if I don’t feel confident my workout suffers. Keep a disposable razor in your gym bag for a quick locker room shave.
Plus when you are wearing the most stylish running shoes ever, people are going to be looking at your legs!
I am not one for wearing makeup at the gym but sometimes even the most beautiful girls need a little help. I use the cult favorite Rosebud salve to give me lips moisture and a natural flush of color. This balm also helps condition dry elbows and knees if you forgot to moisturize before heading out the door.
When wearing a gloss or some sort of lip color go natural or wearing a color that compliments your wardrobe. The pinkish hue of the gloss really plays off of my gray boyfriend crew neck sweatshirt.
Beauty doesn’t always mean beauty products. Having a great foundation for your workout attire is sometimes more important than your hair and makeup. I always make sure I am outfitting in a supportive and stylish bra. Take a few minutes out of your day and dump all the old tattered sports bras that aren’t working for you. I always reach for my trusty Techfit bra. Stylist tip- if you wearing a looser tank, link the Splice tank, try a sports bra with molded cups for a more stunning silhouette.
That’s how I keep things pretty at the gym. What are your fitness beauty secrets? Share them in the comments below.
