After a workout, you may be feeling a bit grubby and sore. As well as completing some post-workout stretches, it’s important to have some products that help set your day up right. We’ve previously given you a breakdown of your gym grooming bag essentials, now we’re taking it up a notch and providing you with some suggestions.
It’s important to have a quality body wash for use after any workout. Enriched with French green clay, this Ab Crew Body Wash helps to stimulate and remove impurities from the skin. Perfect after an intense workout, it will leave your skin feeling clean and invigorated with the fresh scent of wild verbena.
As you will know from our previous post ‘Bend It Like Beckham‘, it’s important to stretch after a workout to eliminate lactic acid. If this still doesn’t combat the aches and pains, the Jack Black Dragon Ice Relief is sure to sort you out. This innovative soothing cream works to ease aches, strains and tension. Enriched with Menthol and Dragon’s Blood, this product will help to speed up your recovery.
After a workout, your skin will be a bit oilier than normal. This can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. The Anthony Glycolic Exfoliating and Resurfacing Wipes exfoliate the skin, helping to remove dirt and impurities. Enriched with menthol and aloe vera, this product is sure to give you a fresh feeling on the skin, whilst soothing any post-workout irritation.
The Jack Black Clean Booth Soothing Antioxidant Toner works to calm, soothe and refresh the skin. Post-workout, your skin may be a bit more inflamed than normal and this toner will help to combat that. Combining aloe vera and vitamin E, this antioxidant toner will eliminate puffiness and angry patches.
After you’ve been in the gym, your skin may be stripped of its natural oils and moisture. The Clinique Moisurizing Loition works to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin. This moisturiser is perfect after a workout as it has properties that help to cool the skin and reduce redness. Sounds great, if you ask us!
