Fitness Fanatics' Favorite Grooming Solutions
Staying in tip-top shape is hard work. While we don't have any solutions that will make you look like The Rock, we do offer a slew of products that will help make exercising more comfortable. See our top picks below to help with all the grooming issues yogis, fitness freaks and athletes face.
THERAPEUTIC/SPACE-SAVING BODY WASHES
Bring along a body wash like Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Shower Gel for the post-workout shower. This body cleanser rejuvenates and cleanses the skin while cutting down on muscle soreness.
Don’t have much space in your bag or locker? Jack Black’s All Over Wash is a top-to-bottom cleanser that can be used on your hair, toes and face! If looking to combine that with an in-shower shave solution, check out the Billy Jealousy Triple Crown 3-in-1 Body Wash. Both are versatile, fantastic-smelling and will save time and space after any workout.
The stress on the body incurred through sports or gym time can even leave a fitness guru with more than muscle soreness. The epidermis is the biggest organ in (on) the body and deals with issues like jock itch, sun/wind burn, bug bites, scratches and dry skin. Skincando Combat-Ready Balm is a cure-all balm that protects and heals skin from all things listed above and then some.
SMELL AND SWEAT
Showering is the first step in the battle to defeat your post-workout stench. Applying a deodorant is the second. The Recipe for Men Antiperspirant Deodorant is a fragrance-free antiperspirant deodorant that provides maximum protection against odor and wetness.
Bring your favorite cologne via a Travalo Travel Fragrance Refill Spray Container. This nifty device lets a guy bring his scent of choice anywhere without having to lug around the whole darn bottle.
Jack Black Dragon Ice Relief & Recovery Balm is a savior for the man turning 40 (or 30), who has sore muscles or joints after a tough workout. Apply to sore muscles (or the area where your muscles used to be) for quick relief to keep you going. Think Bengay on steroids, but without the smell.
Protecting skin against harmful UV rays is important and cannot be neglected, especially when outdoors. The Jack Black Oil-Free Sun Guard Very Water Resistant Sunscreen SPF 45 is perfect for exercising outside, whether at the pool or on the links. It protects against the sun no matter how sweaty you get.
If you prefer to get some bronze on while outdoors, you may want to try the Kiehl’s Facial Fuel SPF 15 Sunscreen, which not only blocks some UV rays, but energizes skin as well.
Have you ever smelled your shoes? Feet stink after a strenuous workout (or all the time for that matter). Don't let the name turn you off, Fresh Balls is a natural lotion that turns into a powder on contact with the skin to keep feet dry all day. Alternatively, you can use a powder like Grooming Lounge Super Powder.
If you're a competitive swimmer or biker you've probably done some hair removal before. If you go that route, grab the ultra-convenient Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Body Groomer and Trimmer. This powerful trimmer is highly maneuverable and is perfect for non-standard areas (privates, chest, underarms, stomach, groin, legs).
