La Roche Posay Effaclar Clarifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes
“These face-cleansing towelettes are great for wiping down your face, chest and back after a workout. They are fragrance-free and contain salicylic acid and zinc to prevent breakouts.” — Nancy Samolitis, M.D., board-certified dermatologist at Comprehensive Dermatology of Long Beach, California.
Sunday Riley, Ceramic Slip Cleanser
“A blend of baby soft, plant-based purifying soaps lift up and wash away dirt and impurities without stripping the skin. Massage onto dry or wet skin to remove dirt, oil, pollution, SPF and makeup. Rinse with water.” — Sunday Riley, founder and CEO of Sunday Riley Modern Skincare.
AcneFree Blackhead Removing Scrub With Charcoal
“I like [this] with salicylic acid for a great post-workout wash for face, chest, back and any other acne-prone areas. It does a great job of removing sweat and sebum, decreasing your risk for post-gym breakouts.” — Hadley King, M.D., board-certified dermatologist in New York City.
Avene Thermal Spring Water
“It’s a cool misting spray that soothes redness and calms while refreshing and hydrating the skin. This is perfect after a workout or anytime of day, and it can even be misted over makeup for that healthy glow.” — Jenny Sobera, M.D., dermatologist and chief medical officer of FaceMDPlus.
Sunday Riley, Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner
“To help combat the post-workout oil buildup on the face, I recommend [this] which transforms from a cooling gel (which feels great going on post-workout skin) to a water toner that absorbs into the skin, giving a matte finish to the skin by incorporating bentonite, which helps to absorb excess oil, marshmallow root and green tea to help improve redness among other ingredients.” — Garshick
Dr. Dennis Gross, Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel
“These two-step wipes are great for when you can’t wash your face or feel like it needs a good cleaning. Follow the process after a workout to help keep your face, or other areas that tend to break out, like your back, clean and breakout free.” — Christi Marraccini, Creator of GO and Producer at NEOU
Sunday Riley, C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream
“Infused with 5 percent vitamin C to visibly brighten dull skin, fight the signs of dehydration and damage, and provide advanced antioxidant support for a smooth, youthful complexion. Layer on last to moisturize and soothe the look of sensitive skin.” — Riley
Derm Insitute, Anti-Oxidant Hydration Gel Masque
“This is great for rehydrating your skin. If you are constantly washing your face from sweat, your skin will dry out. Apply one (or two, if you need a little love) packs on at night and you will wake up with a fresh face.” — Marraccini
Colorescience, Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen SPF 30
“It is easy to pack with you, easy to apply and great for all skin types. Sunscreen is always an essential part of any routine.” — Garshick
Almay, Oil-Free Makeup Eraser Sticks
“After a shower at the gym, there is always a smudge of mascara under my eyes. I love these sticks because they are easy to use — like a Q-tip filled with just enough makeup remover, but you have to break the tip for the remover to come out. That means no spilling in your bag!” — Stacy Schwartz, founder and CEO of Ketanga Fitness Retreats
Trish McEvoy Beauty Balm Instant Solutions SPF 35
“It’s a great all-in-one product. It is an anti aging moisturizer, primer and medium to full coverage light weight cream with a soft blurring finish. There are four different colors matching a wide range in skin tones.” — Sobera
SEED, Female Daily Synbiotic
“For 15 years, I struggled with cystic acne. Last year, I cracked the code and cleaned up my act from the inside out and started taking these probiotics. Without a doubt, good skin starts in the gut. Taking my SEED probiotics every morning after my workout is a non-negotiable.” — Natalie Kuhn, vice president of programming and founding teacher of The Class By Taryn Toomey.
Glytone Acne Treatment Spray Back & Chest
“To help prevent and treat breakouts that can be related to frequent workouts and build up of sweat, I like [this spray] which contains 2 percent salicylic acid to help unclog pores and is great for the hard-to-reach areas like the back and shoulders, which are a common place for post-workout breakouts.” — Garshick
TRESemme Between Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo
“Let’s face it, we don’t always have the time (or patience) to wash and style our hair after a workout, and this dry shampoo not only freshens up my roots, it also smells great and hides any scalp odor that may be present. Tip: buy the travel size to easily fit in any gym bag!” — Schwartz
Kopari Coconut Oil Deodorant
“I sweat for a living so this is a MUST to keep me feeling fresh and smelling good! The other benefit is that it’s aluminum-free, baking soda-free and goes on clear. Additional perks: it smells like a coconut and doesn’t get all over your gym clothes.” — Christa DiPaola, creator of The Cut and The Cut: Jump Rope at Equinox.
