Work Hard, Play Hard, Workout HARDER: Beauty Tricks to Help You Look Good While You Sweat! #LAStory

I got this PR blast in my inbox:

Why does this matter to you? Well if you are in a fitness program or particularly addicted to a workout regimen like I am, you should be interested in how to look good while you work out. I care enough to be presentable – -and I work out at home by myself. Why would I do that? It’s another reason to work out and if I look good doing that, then I can look good anywhere!

Here are 4 products you should be checking out (because I am going to be using them!)

Mia Sport Reflective Tony Ties


These reflective hair ties won’t leave a trace once they’re removed. The soft elastic doesn’t pull or crease hair and can be worn as a bracelet post-workout.

I personally like the ones in the “blonde” tones! I love that they don’t crease my hair–especially since I have returned to the CURLY way of life, it’s important to keep my curls in check but fluffy!


Price: $8.00; available online via

Pura Naturals Active Charcoal Purifying Soap-Infused Facial Cleansing Sponge


Reveal soft skin even after the hardest training sessions. This 3-in-1 soap, washcloth and facial loofah, is formulated with charcoal to combat skin toxins that cause breakouts and clears away dead skin and oils that clog pores post sweat.

I workout with some kind of masque on to keep the pores clean. However before that masque goes on — and before the workout– I make sure my skin is pretty clean for that masque. After the workout is done and I am sweating, I want to get rid of what’s left of the masque and any debris it has managed to capture that got left on my face. Better to use this infused cleansing sponge to make it easy to get a wonderfully clean face.

Price: $5.99; available online via

BioRepublic Sheet Masks


Restore moisture post-workout with ultra-hydrating portable sheet masks. Packed with all natural ingredients, skin is left refreshed and radiant.

Sheets masques (or masks) are so cool. After you shower off, catch a few minutes and put this baby on and lay down. Your skin will glow and look refreshed. The nice part is that it makes the face look so good that you don’t need as much makeup! It restores the balance of the skin and doesn’t require a lot of effort.

Price: $4.99; $14.95/Set of 3, available online via

Key West Aloe Frangipani Salt Scrub


Polish and renew skin with the sweet floral fragrance of Frangipani Salt Scrub containing Dead Sea Salt and Essential oils to replenish hydration and nourish skin.

Before you jump into that shower, do your body a favor and grab this scrub (or one of the other tropical flavors) and take it with you into that shower. Not only will it cleanse and exfoliate the skin but the salt scrub will give your skin a glow and a nice body oil finish. Nothing too slippery but it’s a nice soothing and smoothing touch to do that before you wrap that towel around you. You won’t need body lotion. You will look awesome.

Price: $25.00; available online via
