Whether you’re heading back into the office or meeting up with a date, your post-workout shower plays a crucial role in preventing your skin from becoming dry, cracked, or covered in clogged pores due to excessive sweat.
Apart from helping you look your best, having a post-workout shower also helps the muscles recover after an intense exercise session.
Here are 7 of our favorite essentials to help you walk out of the gym looking and feeling fresh as ever.
Flip Flops: Gym shower rooms serve as the optimal place for the transmission of indirect infections, thanks to their generally moist nature. Wearing flip flops to, from, and in the shower will help avoid infections being transmitted through feet.
Disposable Razor: Don’t let the second day stubble ruin your appearance, use a disposable razor for a quick and effective close cut shave and get that evenly smooth skin.
Face Wash: It helps remove any oil and sweat from clogging your pores, thus giving your skin a brighter and vibrant look.
Shower Gel: Ditch your bar of soap, and switch to a gentle shower gel to cleanse the skin without irritating it.
Solid Cologne: Solid cologne keeps you smelling fresh without any worry of spillage. Just dip your finger and apply to the go-to pulse points: wrists, neck, and behind the ears.
Deodorant: When you work out hard, you need the best deodorant for the best odor protection. Use a deo that can reduce sweating and help you stay fresh and good all day.
Hair Styling Cream: It helps keep your hair in place throughout the day, while also providing the benefits of a dry shampoo, as it absorbs moisture left over from an extra sweaty workout.
While you may sweat hard at the gym, let these post-workout shower essentials help you be a gentleman and put your best foot forward.
