Going to the gym / studio and getting your workout on is typically motivated by two primary factors: feeling better and looking better (let's be real). A beautiful, healthy body is something most women strive for, and there is nothing wrong with that! So long as you set balanced and realistic goals, and acknowledge that outer beauty isn't all that matters.
But, on that note, finding a healthy skin regimen, and the right sweat-friendly products that will have you looking great without clogging your pores, screwing up your skin, or getting you pegged as the "melting makeup girl" is something worth thinking about! Here are some favorite, nature-friendly and organic products that are strong enough to keep up with you while you're kickboxing, cycling, hiking and beyond...
Pump some of this product into your luscious locks before and after a hard workout. The gluten-free, vegan formula is made with organic ingredients and state of the art natural dry shampoo technology. It is aerosol-free in a recyclable, eco-squeeze dispenser. Age-old plant based and mineral ingredients work together to absorb oil, sweat and dirt that accumulate throughout the day, leaving hair voluminous and refreshed, with a light, clean scent. It'll absorb sweat in an all natural way, and leave you feeling fresh if you don't have time for a hair wash. No shame...we are busy women!!
Remove make-up, cleanse and tone in one easy step - pre-workout (after work), post-workout (before reapplying your liner for a night out), or both!

Chamomile and calendula help to calm and soothe. Antioxidant-rich grapeseed oil, olive oil and aloe vera moisturize and condition skin.
