If greasy locks and sweaty underarms have demanded you skip your spin session or back out of barre class, it's time to reclaim your date with the gym. There are plenty of new products that promise to take you from grungy gym rat to polished and pretty with a simple swipe or spray (no shower necessary). Not only are these products the ideal solution to keep you from missing your favorite hot yoga sesh, but they're affordable and easy to stuff into a locker-sized gym bag.
CLEAN Original-Scent Moisture Absorbent Deodorant
The breakthrough formula in this product helps to absorb moisture without aluminium. A simple swipe after an intense workout is all it takes as the fragrance of this deodorant is akin to real soap and gives off a time-released scent. It's the illusion of a freshly showered bod, sans shower. CLEAN also makes a soap-smelling dry shampoo perfect for second day hair.
Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water
Upgrade from cleansing wipes to using cotton pads and this mineral makeup remover and your skin will thank you. Made with mineral rich hot spring water and infused with seven essential herbs like white birch sap, this water will not only remove traces of stubborn makeup and post-gym sweat, but will rejuvenate and replenish the skin.
Lush No Drought Shampoo
Lemon, grapefruit and lime oils help to revive strands in this zesty and fragrance-rich dry shampoo. Massage a little product into the scalp to get renewed volume and crave-worthy fresh hair. This multi-tasker can even be used on dark hair and is easily absorbed. Brush this wash-free shampoo into post-gym strands for a clean on-the-go style.
Vaseline Spray and Go Moisturizer
Even without a shower, skin can feel dry and parched after a serious sweat session. Give cracked hands, feet and elbows new life with this quick continuous-spray lotion which goes on like a spray sunscreen and is quickly and easily absorbed into the skin. Skin feels soft without a greasy or tacky feeling.
Victoria's Secret Bombshell Body Mist
The new Forever body mist gives off a fresh, fruity scent that lingers on the skin. Paired with Victoria's Secret lotion and this boysenberry, lavender and pamplewood-infused fragrance lasts for hours. Freshen up with a few mists as you're walking out of the gym and no one will know you skipped the showers.
Victoria Secret, $25
Tokyo Milk Lip Elixir
Nothing says dehydrated and un-glam worse than cracked lips. With all the moisture loss from scultpting and cardio, lips can become seriously parched. Try one of these jasmine and bee balms which will hydrate and renew lips so they look kissably soft and sultry. Try Salted Caramel or Cherry Bourbon.
While Crest Wisps hit the market a little while back, these little to-go toothbrushes (no water or rinsing required) are the perfect saving grace after a meal or even a gritty gym sesh. These single-use minis cleanse away morning latte and egg sandwich breath, and add back that clean-mouth feel with minty freshness to boot. Stash these in your gym bag and purse for any bad breath emergency.
