Our Favorite #BeautyHacks

We are always looking for new ways to stay fresh after a sweat sesh – here some of our instructors share some of their go-to beauty routines.

KENDALL Z. –¬†I keep a big pack of baby wipes in my gym bag, and immediately wipe my face after class. You’re sweating out bacteria and gunk and if ya don’t get it off quickly it’ll stay and form a pimple. Andddd baby wipes can help you feel clean all over ūüė≥ūüėāūüôą!¬†I also keep Dove Dry Spray in my bag so I can freshen up quickly!

AK –¬†My recent obsession is Coconut Oil – twice a week I leave it in my hair overnight, teach in the morning, and then shower (make sure you sleep with a towel down, shower cap on, or an old pillow case as some will transfer onto the pillowcase)! I also LOVE Coastal Salt & Soul’s Blushing Peony scented anything – especially the Blissful Body Butter¬†to help my skin stay moisturized from all the sweating/showering.

CHELSEA K. –¬†My newest go to is Makeup ForeverPRO > BRONZE FUSION– it’s waterproof, so I’m not dripping brown drops during/after class!

KATELYN S. РPost class, I use oil-free makeup remover wipes to remove sweat and left over makeup. I follow up with Mario Badescus Rose Water Spray on the my face and neck to refresh and get skin glowing, then apply Laura Mercier Radiance Primer and my post workout glow is perfect!

MC –¬†I swear by Klorane Dry Shampoo¬†to counter the post-ride ponytail.

ALICIA R.¬†–¬†I am obsessed with Honest Beauty Makeup Remover Wipes post-sweat! I also cannot live without Batiste Dry Shampoo, this Vita Liberata¬†bronzer & this moisturizer by Charlotte Tilbury!

Our Current Obsession: “The Man Bun” for Women

Despite the gloomy weather, we are gearing up for the summer at Tandem – and that means breaking out that warmer weather wardrobe. With that, comes humidity – which can mean major stress around what to do with our hair. This season, we are LOVING the man bun/half bun come back. Whether you are rocking it to and from the studio, or a night out with your girls, this style is so simple, yet so chic!

This is a great way to hide greasy roots, while still allowing for some length around your face. How can you pull this look off? ¬†This article by wellandgood.com¬†breaks it down –¬†“If you have a shorter face, opt for the ‘mini’ version by taking a smaller section of hair from temple-to-temple and sitting the knot high on the head. If you have a longer face or narrow forehead, pull the knot from ear-to-ear to the back of the head, versus the top.”

The best part – the messier you make it, the better it looks.¬†We recommend using some texture spray (we LOVE¬†Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Spray)¬†to help add a “fresh from the beach” look.

We are pairing this style with our favorite pair of boyfriend jeans, or harem pants, a basic white tee, and a pair of sunnies! See some of our go-to picks below:
