For those of you not following my journey on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter (why the heck not?!), I am officially in full-on, bodybuilding competition preparation (comp prep) mode. For those not in that world, what that means is that I am tightening my diet and changing my training style, with the help of my Coach. Prep means that my days get longer and crazier, and my free-time becomes non-existent. With that in mind – here are my go-to products, to help me get through these busier times.
Caress Evenly Gorgeous Body Wash
Dry patchy skin is never cute, ESPECIALLY when you’re baring arms and rocking shorts at the gym, year-round. Enter Evenly Gorgeous, which not only sloughs off the icky stuff, but also leaves my skin smelling great and glowing.
Dove Dry Spray Deodorant
Gym stank is never good. Fortunately, these Dove Dry spray deodorants keep me smelling pretty. I’ve got one at my desk at work, one in my gym bag, and one in my bathroom at home. Great for de-stinking on-the-go.
Body Shop Tea Tree Wipes
I am a HUGE fan of face wipes – fact. These body shop tea tree wipes are a gym bag staple for me – great for cleansing my face (and my pits, shhh) after an especially tough workout. Bonus points for feeling super refreshing to hot, stick skin.
“Yes To” Paper Masks
At the end of a busy day, there is nothing I want to do more than de-tox my face. These “Yes To” Skincare masks offer up a variety of mask for every skin ailment, and come in handy, dandy, on-the-go type packaging. All you have to do is rip open a packet for instant skincare gratification.
Urban Decay Naked Skin One and Done
If ever there was a mantra for my beauty routine during prep season, it’s definitely “one and done”. This Naked Skin primer offers up light coverage and utter skin perfection. I LOVE one-stop products, and this Urban Decay staple is beyond amazing.
NARS Audacious Lipstick in Rita
Is there anything more transformative than a bright red lipstick? I think not. NARS Audacious lipstick in Rita is the quintessential scarlet red that instantly brightens up my face. Bonus points for the glide and finish on this gorgeous cream.
