Workout Beauty Tips with Amanda Harrington

We have exciting news to share! We are extremely proud to announce that we have partnered with InParlour, London’s premier beauty concierge service. An amazing team, handpicked by InParlour’s founder, Amanda Harrington, they are incredibly talented, personable and ready to help you achieve your ultimate beauty look this Summer.

In honour of this new collaboration, we decided to get some top tips from Amanda in an all-you-need to know Q & A. Amanda let us in on the best beauty tips during a workout and post workout! Here is what she had to say…

TruBe: What’s the best makeup to wear during a workout?

Amanda: The best for maintaining makeup throughout a workout is definitely Sports FX Time Out Face Mist. If you’re into lashes, the best lashes to wear that last would be Eyeko Yoga Waterproof Mascara. And the best makeup for adding colour would be E.L.F. Workout Ready Lip & Cheek Palette.

TruBe: What are some tips for skin care during and after a workout?

Amanda:

  1. Do not apply heavy makeup, but if you do have a lot of redness in your skin, look for moisturisers or skin serums with soothing ingredients such as white tea, sea whip, azulene, chamomile and bisabolol which will help to calm the skin by taking the pressure away from the capillaries.
  2. Post workout is the most important time to protect your skin, it needs moisture and restorative antioxidants to hydrate, feed and protect it against damage.
  3. Your skin is susceptible to breakouts all over your body should you not cleanse it properly post workout. Don’t forget about other parts of your body apart from your face; change out of your fitness gear immediately, as it will allow your pores to breathe and prevent breakouts in areas such as your back and chest.
  4. If you’re working out outdoors, opt for a vitamin C antioxidant serum and a high SPF moisturiser (non clog) for hands, neck and face.
  5. After a workout, use a salicylic face wash to immediately take of sweat and toxins on skin to avoid post sweat spots on face.

TruBe: How can you have a fake tan that won’t run/smudge when you sweat?

Amanda: Definitely don’t apply fake tan on the day you exercise. Make sure the top layer is washed off and allow 12-24 hours for the colour to settle before breaking a sweat. Fake tans that are a mousse formula are the best tans for a non-smudge experience.

TruBe: What’s the best hair care if you tie up your hair a lot, or alternate things to do with your hair when working out, to stop it getting damaged in a tight bun/bobble?

Amanda: The Hot Head Microveil treatment is a heat activated mist that responds as body temperature rises and the hair cuticle opens. It’s rich in argan oil and the treatment conditions and hydrates the hair as you condition your body. Make sure to use a protein shampoo and conditioner to protect the ends from getting damaged. I personally use a Redken Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner to protect my hair against damage.  Kerastace Resistance is a good cheaper alternative. Moroccan Oil intense hydrating mask is the best thing to apply when you wash your hair post workout and is a steal at £9!

We thoroughly enjoyed speaking with Amanda and we hope these beauty workout tips inspire you to feel fabulous no matter what the occasion.

We believe that a positive state of mind is crucial for good health, happiness and success. Your body craves goodness, the better you feel the better you look, and vice –versa!
