WORDS: MARNI ROSE MCFALL

After a long, sweaty workout, choosing the right products is key. From cleansers that hit deep to soothing mists that calm the skin and mattifying moisturisers that will rid you of any unwanted post-exercise glow, these are the products worth squeezing into your gym bag this year.

1. THE CLEANSER

Cleansing the skin post-sweat is essential. And Eve Lom’s Foaming Cream Cleanser is the place to start. Enzyme-infused, it uses the power of water to activate a cream-to-foam lather which gently removes any impurities without drying the skin out.

2. THE SOOTHING MIST

Designed to be used anywhere, anytime, Origins’ Mega Mushroom Soothing Hydra Mist does exactly what it says on the tin. Delivering a hit of moisture with the soothing effects of mushrooms, use pre, post and during workouts for an instant refresh.

3. THE DEODORANT

A deodorant that also looks after your skin? Aesop have nailed the formula. A deodorant spray, it contains 11 essential oils to prevent and neutralise arm odour. Smart.

4. THE MATTIFYING MOISTURISER

Mattifying moisturisers are a saviour post workout and Sisley have mastered it with this one. Hydrating enough to act as a moisturiser, while the addition of purifying ingredients leave skin fresher and clearer. And most importantly, the addition of bamboo powder and java tea extract help to control any shine.

5.THE LIP BALM

Cold winter days mean lip balms are essential. And Augustinus Bader’s The Lip Balm is cult. Deeply conditioning, it nourishes, protects and improves texture thanks to a winning blend of amino acids, vitamins, waxes, butters and oils. The best bit? A little goes a long way. Keep close at hand.

THE FRESH FRAGRANCE

The best fragrances for post-workouts? Ones packed with fresh citrus fruits. House of Creed’s Viking Cologne fits the bill. Zesty bergamot mixes with a woody base of sandalwood and earthy vetiver. Bold and fiery but with the refreshing twist you’ll be craving.

7. THE CBD RECOVERY BALM

Need to give muscles a helping hand post-workout? PureSport’s 1000mg CBD recovery balm should do the trick. Infused with lavender, lemongrass, witch hazel, wintergreen and peppermint, it helps to relieve pain and promote faster recovery. Genius.
