I resolved to focus on health for 2016 and so far so good. I want healthier skin and a healthier body. I’m working out with a personal trainer twice a week and riding my bike/doing the treadmill/attending yoga classes/suffering through core workouts at least three other days each week. I’m also taking good care of my skin – religiously washing my face at night, washing my makeup brushes once a week, and using treatments with proven ingredients.
While I feel so much better physically, I do find that since I am going from work to workout I am always wanting to freshen up. Two products I am finding invaluable for this are Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths ($3.29) and ESPA Detoxifying Body Oil ($68).
Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths are always in my gym bag! They instantly wipe away sweat and grime, refreshing me after even the most grueling workout. I like to use them to clean my hands during my workout too – gym floors and equipment can be kind of grimy. These wipes aren’t overly wet so they don’t leave me all sticky and trying to dry off. They have this powder finish that is soft and smells so good. I love them.
I am also loving the ESPA Detoxifying Body Oil. Body oils in general are an awesome way to keep skin soft and supple, and this one is incredibly refreshing. The grapefruit scent smells clean and happy, and the sweet almond oil is terrific for skin hydration. It is detoxifying in that it boosts circulation (which also helps reduce the appearance of cellulite — hooray!). Cypress and juniper berry also help stimulate the lymphatic system which then flushes away toxins. This elegant oil is refreshing and so good for the body that it’s totally worth the price tag.
