How to Freshen Up On the Go After a Killer Workout
We all lead busy lives. In our efforts to stay healthy, we do our best to squeeze some exercise in as often as possible, whether it’s a quick run around the block every morning or weekly pilates and yoga classes. While the focus during our workout is to get our heart rate up and break a sweat, the focus post-workout shifts to freshening up quickly and heading to our next task of the day. We get it, though, not everyone has the time for a full-fledged skin, makeup, and hair routine post-sweat. To help make sure you still cover all your bases without being late to your next appointment, we’re sharing the top nine L’Oreal Paris products to help you freshen up on-the-go after a killer workout, below.
SKIN CARE ROUTINE
L’Oreal Paris Ideal Clean Makeup Removing Towelettes
Priority #1 post-workout should be to remove impurities and sweat from your skin’s surface before they have the chance to wreak havoc. If you don’t have the time to hover over a sink with the double-cleanse method, store these towelettes in your gym bag for a quick skin refresh while on-the-go.
L’Oreal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water – All Skin Types
Ok, ok—you’re not a fan of cleansing wipes. Don’t fret, we’ve got another no-rinse option for you: micellar water. This unique cleansing formula is formulated with gentle micelles to lift away impurities without harsh rubbing. After your workout, dispense L’Oreal Paris Micellar Water onto a cotton pad and sweep it over your facial contours until clean. The result? Skin that’s purified and clear of makeup and dirt, while left with a hydrated look.
L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care
You know the drill: After cleansing comes hydrating the skin, and for that we recommend none other than L’Oreal Paris’ Hydra Genius Moisturizers. There are three formulas total, which differ slightly in order to meet the needs of three unique skin types—normal/dry skin, extra dry skin, and normal/oily skin. What the formulas do share, however, is a base formula of aloe water and hyaluronic acid and the ability to thoroughly hydrate the skin all day long. Follow up with Broad Spectrum SPF 15 or higher.

L’Oreal Paris Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer with SPF 30
When you’re crunched for time, double-duty products can be a total lifesaver. Combine two steps into one with this moisturizer formulated with SPF 30. This hydrating formula, with glycolic acid, not only moisturizes the skin but visibly brightens the complexion, evens skin’s tone, and helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles. For sunscreen use, apply 15 minutes prior to heading outdoors and reapply at least every two hours.
L’Oreal Paris Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer
Once your skin care routine is completed, kick start your makeup routine with an illuminating primer. Not only can makeup primers create a smooth canvas for your foundation, but most can also help your makeup last longer throughout the day. This particular formula can be worn a few ways: under foundation or mixed into it for a soft light illusion OR as a highlighter on specific areas of the face for a sculpted effect.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer
When there’s no time for a full-face of makeup, just wear it where you need it to help cover problem areas or imperfections. We like to place our concealer under the eyes to help hide dark circles, around the nose to camouflage discoloration, and overtop blemishes to reduce their appearance.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer, $9.99 MSRP
L’Oreal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo
When washing your hair simply isn’t an option but you’re in need of an instant refresh, reach for a dry shampoo. This formula—with three refined clays—can help absorb any excess oil or grease for fresh, lightweight hair with no visible residue between shampoos.
