The ladies of Uplift know how to throw a great class, and a great time, so it’s no wonder they know all the secret beauty products that will make any fitnessista look great before, during and after a workout.
We asked six of the women-only studio’s top instructors for the must-have products they rely on to stay hydrated, warm and looking and feeling great through the winter months and into the spring.
Take a look and try them for yourself. P.S. Don’t forget to book a class with these ladies soon!
Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo helps me cut down on the number of times I have to shampoo between workouts plus nourishes my hair with oat milk, keeping my hair from getting too dry and breaking.
Coconut Oil – I LOVE this stuff. It has all sorts of uses: removing waterproof mascara, moisturizing extra dry spots (cheeks, elbows and heels), and deep conditioning my hair. Whatever I have left over from an application, I rub all over my hands and cuticles for extra benefits. Extra virgin coconut oil is the best, and I use the Nutiva brand.
Coconut Oil: Any organic kind from the supermarket. I use it on my face and body during the winter months because I can’t seem to get enough hydration.
Moroccan Oil: I put a quarter sized dab in my hair after I wash it. It leaves hair with a nice shine and protects it from the dryer and I love the way it smells.
L’Occitane Hand Cream: I always keep a tube of this stuff in my backpack or purse. Since I’m always touching sweaty fitness equipment, I wash my hands a lot, and they can get very dry. This stuff is amazing for dry hands!
Suave Dry Shampoo: This stuff is like three bucks and it works just as well, if not better than the more expensive stuff I used to buy.
Glittery Hair Ties: They dress up your workout ponytail and make you feel festive during the holiday season, even when you live in workout clothes!
Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Facial Moisturizer: My skin is incredibly sensitive, and this products is lightweight, hydrating, and never makes me breakout.
Wigwam Socks: I am on my feet all day either dancing or training, so I need a great pair of socks that protects my feet during the winter.
Smart Touch Gloves: I LIVE for my playlists. Thus, I’m constantly listening to music while riding the subway or walking, trying to find the best music to motivate my clients. These gloves allow me to use my phone or iPod without freezing my fingers off.
“The Herbal Answer” Herbal Aloe Force: The Skin Gel: You can find it at Whole Foods, health food stores, and online. This stuff is amazing as it’s incredibly soothing to the skin. It also works perfectly as a natural alternative to hair gel for slicked back buns and polished curls.
Drink Up Intensive Overnight Face Mask by Origins: Not greasy (so nothing rubs onto your pillow) but does exactly what it does and has a wonderful light scent without any synthetic fragrance added.
Bath and Body Works’ Secret Wonderland Body Spray: It’s such a great scent but neutral and fresh enough that it’s not too overpowering if I am going to workout.
Cover Girl Professional Loose Powder: It’s super cheap and available at drug stores but it works better than any expensive stuff I have found. It’s super light so I can wear it before working out if I want something but don’t want it to run when I sweat.
