When Fashion Magazine issued this month’s Beauty Panel’s set of challenges, it couldn’t have been more perfect as I recently discovered some new brilliant products that I wanted to share with you. Last week’s Beauty Panel is about skin care, specifically about post-workout beauty regimen: Ways to say goodbye to sweat and hello to skincare when you’re at the gym.
I cannot possibly stress the importance of post-gym skin care! From gym equipment that is not sanitized to sweating to dehydration during a workout, we need to ensure that we properly care for our skin and body right after! I always carry facial wipes with me especially for times that I cannot take a full shower at the gym. I know, I know I really should – every.single.time. But the reality is, that’s just not possible all the time.
I also carry an antI-blemish solution; it comes in handy if you feel a breakout is about to come! I’m deathly afraid of acne that I panic if there’s anything that pop ups that resembles a break-out. In fact, I’m a little OCD on this matter that I carry a number of different emergency zit zapper! I have yet to figure out which one really is the most effective but I do hope to figure that out soon.
If there is one take away from this beauty tip is that it’s very important to re-hydrate right after by using an all-natural moisturizer for face and lips! My all-time favourite? THANN’s Anti-Aging Face Cream. My new favourite? Avene’s Thermal Spring Water and Epic Blend’s Premium Lip Balms. With formulas like Hemp, Vegan and More Moisture, I keep one in my office, my gym bag and my jacket pocket! They’re soft, buttery and paraben-free!
My current favourites from Epic Blend are the tropical flavoured ones like Coconut and Pineapple Mint. It’s a refreshing breath of fresh air and it gives me a happy illusion of summer this winter!

And if I really need to go out after working out? I simply swipe a coat of Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara and light touch of pink berry gloss and I’m all good to go!
