6 Ways To Look Good While Sweating It Out At The Gym

 

Because you want to look hot—not a hot mess

 

While the guys can get away with looking like they just jumped out of bed and into the gym, girls just can’t. But what’s the point if you’re going to sweat buckets anyway? It doesn’t matter. It pays to make an effort to look good whether you’re yoloing it up in the club or doing cardio. Besides, there’s a long list of people you might bump into: boss, ex, ex of the ex, new friend, future boyfriend, etc.

 

1 PUT A FACE ON

No, don’t wear a smoky eye. Just cover up what needs to be concealed with a tinted moisturizer, like Pond’s BB Cream, brush up those brows and secure in place with a tinted brow mascara, like Happy Skin Arch Definer & Brow Mascara, a two-in-one automatic brow pencil and brow mascara, add a bit of pre-game color on lips and cheeks with The Face Shop My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Lip & Cheek Tint and curl those lashes to open up your eyes.

 

 

2 HAIR UP

Unless you’re in pole class, we encourage you tie your hair. Nobody looks cute with their hair all over the face when running on the mill. Here are some Pinterest-worthy styles you might want to try.

 

 

3 DRESS UP

Don’t wear your jammies to the gym. If you have a nice upper bod, wear a sando or stringers. It’ll help you track progress in that area, too if you’ve been working it out. Great legs? Put on cycling shorts or dolphin shorts. 

 

 

4 HIGHLIGHT YOUR ASSETS

Add a little grease on areas that you want to highlight—collarbone, arms, legs. Use regular oil or dry oil, it softens skin, too without the greasy or oily feel.

 

 

5 SMELL GOOD

Add a spritz of cologne, something fresh and light or gender-free, after putting on deodorant just because.
