Use a fabric hair tie
Pre-workout, pull your hair up into a high bun, pony, or braid—using a stretchy elastic. This will keep hair off your neck, helping you stay cool and preventing strands from getting super sweaty or greasy. Emily Burkhardt, instructor at Flywheel, praises creaseless hair ties. “They’re the reason I’m able to let my locks down after a great workout—without getting that dreaded dent in my hair.”
Cleanse your face
Post-class cleansing is a must to wash away sweat, stink, and blemish-causing bacteria. When you can’t shower, wipes are the next best thing. Katia Pryce, founder and creator of DanceBody, has her post-workout routine down to a science. “Living the life of a trainer, I don’t always have time to shower after class. When that happens, I use Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes,” she says. If you have acne-prone skin, dermatologists recommend wipes with bacteria-busting salicylic acid.
