Apart of my daily routine is getting in a good workout. But what do you do when you have plans directly after your gym sesh? Or if you’re working out on your lunch break and have to return to work? The struggle can be real.

While I am a stay-at-home-mom now, in my prior life I was trying to fit in a quick workout before returning back to work. While now I’m usually running my toddler to music class, toddler time or to a play date after my workout, I still don’t want to be a sweaty and stinky mess.

So what’s a girl to do when she has limited time to look like she never broke a sweat? Follow this tutorial of course!

Before Your Workout: Use Neutrogena Makeup Removing Wipes

I love using Neutrogena Makeup Removing Wipes before my workout to take off any makeup before getting all sweaty. These makeup remover wipes can even remove waterproof mascara!  It leaves skin thoroughly clean with no heavy residue. I have horrible skin, so taking every precaution that I can to ensure that I don’t clog my pores is super important to me.

Use a Headband During Your Workout

Using a headband not only keeps your hair out of your face, but it also helps keeps additional sweat out of your hair.

Use a Shower Cap During Your Shower

There is no need to mess up your hair, even if it got a little sweaty! I like to use a shower cap to keep my hair dry while I take a quick shower. When I was working, I could never go back to work without a quick 2 minute shower rinse off.

Cleanse Your Face

Using Neutrogena Deep Clean Micellar Water helps cleanse and purify your skin. Like I said before, I have horrible skin. It’s naturally sensitive and prone to breakouts. Neutrogena Deep Clean Micellar Water is a brand new product that’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. This facial cleanser deeply cleanses by targeting 100% of impurities, leaving skin soft and healthy looking. I love how clean this made my skin feel! It didn’t feel like there was leftover residue and it took care of any leftover dirt and grim from my workout.


Use your favorite daily facial moisturizer and Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion to replenish you skin. This lotion leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and naturally healthy looking and is gentle enough for everyday use. It’s also fragrance free, nongreasy and noncomedogenic, which is perfect for sensitive skin!

Dry Shampoo

My hair can get sweaty and greasy after a workout. Freshening up with dry shampoo works wonders! Use dry shampoo on your roots and near any damp/sweaty spots. Let the dry shampoo sit for about 5 minutes and soak up any residue before brushing through your hair.

Simple Makeup Routine

I’m a strong believer that simple is better. After an intense sweat sesh, I like to freshen up with a simple makeup routine. Adding a touch of foundation, a swipe of mascara and a coat of lipstick and you’ll be ready to take on the world! Whether it be the corporate world or the world of managing toddlers.

    • Brittany | 7th Mar 18

      Thank you! I love both of those products too!

  2. Leah Ashley | 7th Mar 18

    What a simple routine!! I am addicted to dry shampoo it is the greatest thing since sliced bread!

    • Brittany | 8th Mar 18

      Right??? I used to do my hair every single day. Now I enjoy the extra sleep instead!

  3. Amy | 8th Mar 18

    I love it! Easy & fast. I would love to be able to work out before work in the mornings, but it doesn’t make sense logistically to go to the gym and go back home. It also doesn’t help that I’m too high maintenance to get ready completely at the gym (mainly washing/drying my hair). I’ll have to try this out!

    • Brittany | 8th Mar 18

      Haha, totally get that! I hope it helps some!

  4. Emily | 8th Mar 18

    I just got back in the gym and find myself way out of shape and sweating all over myself! So this is perfect!!!

    • Brittany | 8th Mar 18

      Oh perfect! 🙂

    It’s so important to take care of your skin before and after your workout! Love the Neutrogena products!

    • Brittany | 8th Mar 18

      It really is! ME too!
