Ever feel your hottest right after a workout? That post-gym glow is hard to beat, but the good news is it's easy to recreate. Moisture has never been more popular and now, sweaty glam is taking over high fashion runways. Here's how to get that post-gym glow without having working out.
Strobing and highlighting has been a popular trend for a while now, but the latest runways are seeing a new spin on glow. High-impact moisture has been front and center on spring season shows like Gucci, Balmain, Victoria Beckham, Chloe, Versace and more. It's about illuminated cheekbones, wet eyelids, and glossy nude lips. Think about the post-workout glow you get at the gym after a light run or some good stretching. We aren't talking about dripping sweat here, but truly glossy, flushed skin. It looks uber natural and healthy, and is a "stripped down", no-makeup makeup look that is fresh for spring. Forget heavy smoky eyes and time consuming routines — less is more!
While it is a natural look, it's also polished enough for work, brunch, dates, and beyond. To achieve the look, opt for cream formulas and illuminating skin products like primers, foundations, setting sprays, highlighters. It's all about beautiful, glowing skin!
Below are some of my favorite products that'll help you get that post-gym glow without having to step one foot on a treadmill.
