These are my essentials from Rite Aid for a simple but effective post-workout skincare routine.
Rehydrate. I drink a boatload of water throughout the day and on days when I’m exercising really hard, I like to give myself a boost by taking these Hydralyte Effervescent Electrolyte Tablets. It’s as simple as dropping it into some water and letting it dissolve. These have 75% less sugar and 4x the electrolytes of sports drinks.
As a bonus, they make my skin glow from the inside out and keep my immune system strong even through winter and working out next to people constantly!
Restart. Micellar water is one of my absolute favorite beauty products of all-time. Even though I workout with no makeup on, I know there is sweat, oil, and dirt on my skin after a workout session. Neutrogena Deep Clean Micellar Water removes waterproof makeup, impurities, oil, and it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
A little bit of this on a cotton pad will keep your skin soft, healthy, and glowing. I am always shocked at how much comes off my face after a workout despite the fact that I do not wear makeup while exercising. This is a crucial step for me in my skincare routine because it lets you start with a clean slate on your skin post-workout.
Refresh. This Clean & Clear Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub is a product I’ve been using since I was a teenager. It gives my skin a cooling, tingly feeling that feels oh-so-great after a workout. It also exfoliates any dead skin cells and generally feels super refreshing after intense workouts.
The cooling sensation makes it especially great for those who want a little spa-like treatment after working out.
I picked these products up from my local Rite Aid, which I’ve loved since I was a teenager. I have fond memories of my mom taking me to Rite Aid after I received my allowance so that I could pick out the latest beauty products. I’d rush home to take a shower and use them. I guess some things never change?
The best part is that Rite Aid has a Beauty+Wellness Program that focuses on a new theme every month. With the new theme comes special offers and savings, so I always keep an eye out for what that months “theme” is going to be. Right now, from March 4th, 2018 to March 31st, 2018 they have a promotion going on where if you spend $30, you get $10 Bonus Cash on participating Wellness+Beauty items. Now you know why I was doing a great big happy dance in the middle of my Rite Aid above (they were also playing great music)!
