There’s a certain breed of women who magically seem able to maintain their post-workout glow for hours after they’ve hopped off the treadmill—the ones who seem to have been blessed with the ability to leave the gym without looking red-faced, sweaty, disheveled, and exhausted.

"I leave a ton of products in my bag because I typically work out mid-day with a client, so I need to be armed with the essentials for post-sweat sessions. I wash my face with a Sisley milk cleanser, apply Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum, and finish off with Sisley rose tonermoisturizer, and SPF

Keeping my skin hydrated is what I focus on most. I love to sweat for the detoxification benefits, but then I need to focus on rehydration from the inside out and the outside in. I only drink Essentia water because it’s alkaline, ionized, and hydrates eight times better than any other water on the market! Pre-workout, I wash my face with a gentle cleanser like Sisley Cleansing Milk and sometimes apply the Sisley Express Flower geland leave it on during my workout. Then I take a shower immediately after the workout—don’t let the sweat dry!—and tone, moisturize, and use Sisley Eye Gel. I always carry the Sisley Floral toning mist to spray on during the day for extra hydration and a fresh boost."—Anna Kaiser, AKT founder

"I always carry body spray in my bag so that I can freshen up after yoga class, whether I’m taking a class or teaching one. My day is very hectic and I’m constantly running from place to place, and I like to stay as fresh as possible. I like Yuni products because they contain awesome ingredients, and the body spray contains essential oils. I also swear by Burts Bees lip balm—I keep it in my wallet, car, desk, gym bag, everywhere. I hate having chapped lips, and the texture of bees wax gives me life."Jessamyn Stanley, yogi and influencer

"Agent Nateur deodorant always sells out at the studio. It's completely non-toxic, naturally smells good, and really works. I love supporting its creator—she made this deodorant as an art. She's a cool person with a cool creation, and she's passionate. That makes the deodorant work even better. 

Also, Henné Organics lip balm ingredients are so rich and 100 percent natural that it really heals the skin. I'm a lip balm addict and I use it everywhere, including my eyebrows to shape them and on my cuticles, elbows, etc.

I use Ratrani Rose Replenishing Mist right after a workout. It smells like heaven, refreshes the face and body, but isn't so strong that it will bug the person next to you or scent the air of the room. Dr. Pratima Raichur is such a smart woman, and her products are smart and perfect in every way.

Finally, Kjaer Weis Bronzer is my no-makeup makeup. It's so easy to toss in a bag and it's all-natural, which makes it very hydrating for the skin. The beautiful, reusable packaging is like a mini sculpture."—Karen Lord, Karen Lord Pilates Movement founder
