Whether you’re spinning on a bike, hitting the pavement or striking a yoga pose, there’s no reason you can’t do it all with panache. Taking care of your skin and hair (and looking fabulous) is a 24/7 job, after all. We’ve rounded up the best in beauty for the busy gals hitting the gym. Fit and fabulous? We recommend two sets of 10 every day.
For skin that’s lovely when you’re doing reps, try beingTRUE’s Transforming Skin-Tint. It’s a foundation that’s truly not a foundation in many ways. Packed with minerals, essential vitamins and botanical extracts, it gives a more even complexion and youthful glow with a sheer finish. It can be worn alone (perfect for a morning at the gym) or as a primer under a mineral foundation. From Bath Haus.
Another beingTRUE product that’s perfect for the fitness buffs — the new Mineral Illuminator Compact. Crushed mineralized pearls in a variety of colors make highlighting and bronzing a cinch. Use on the eyelids for eyeshadow, sweep across cheekbones for a highlight, use the bronze color to bring life to your face and smudge the palest hue on the brow bone to make eyes pop. From Bath Haus.
Bumble and Bumble’s hair powder is a must have post workout. The oil absorbing spray comes in a variety of colors to cover roots and works well enough to ensure no need for another hair washing after hitting the gym. From Bath Haus.
For post workout skin revival, reach for Mario Badescu’s facial spray. This super light (and delish fresh smelling) mist sets or refreshes makeup and cools the face. From Bath Haus. While you may work up a sweat working out, those two showers a day do some drying things to the skin. Moroccan Oil’s newest creation — Intense Hydrating Treatment — restores the moisture lost post workout and shower.
During your workout, you want to look decent without pulling out the lipstick. Try beingTRUE’s odd little blue lipgloss. The satin lip shine has a combo of peppermint oil, caffeine and antioxidants to hydrate while minimizing fine lines. And that odd blue? Goes on clear and keeps those teeth looking extra white.

For hair, keeping it in a simple ponytail is the way to go. But there are some super simple tips you can do before and after you hit the gym to keep your do looking right all day. Start with humidity-fighting products from the get go. Aveda’s Smooth Infusion line at be.
