{GBF Life + Beauty} Simple Midday Workout Beauty Solutions

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

When I'm super stressed at work, I sneak out for nooners. The elevated heart rate, the sweating, and the gyrating help release buildup of tension. Don't let your mind go. I'm talking about lunchtime workouts.

As a girl living the virtues of efficiency, a midday workout is a time saving exercise that breathes productivity and energy (with the added side benefit of glowing skin) into the workday. But the logistics of trying to fit an impactful workout, a shower, and look work ready in just one hour is enough of a nooner buzz kill. While one friend advocates the army shower method which is just a fancy term for dabbing yourself with paper towels, I believe in taking a hybrid approach to lunchtime showers. It's a time saving simple ten minute process that's refreshing, cleansing, and erases all traces of a sweaty nooner. Use it for your lunchtime workout or anytime you find yourself in a rush to get ready.

 1. Before the workout, twist and tie your hair into a top bun with a no crease hair tie to avoid weird folds.

2. After the workout, step into the shower for a quick one minute rinse. Avoid getting your face wet.
3. Step out and dip your head into the sink. Shampoo the roots only. Towel dry.
4. Spritz It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In conditioner into your hair concentrating on the top bun. It's a 10 Haircare offers five products in their Leave-in Collection. A thick cream that comes out as a fine spray, the Leave-in acts as a conditioning product and styling aid. Each product has 10 benefits (shine, moisture, frizz-free, breakage protector, to name a few) to instantly deliver superior, salon-quality hair care. My favorite is the Miracle Silk Leave-in as it helps to dramatically reduce breakage in my waist length hair while providing unrivaled softness. I haven't had a trim in almost a year because this product has had my back!

5. Wipe off excess sweat from face with an anti-blemish pad.
6. Touch up and hydrate your skin with a tinted moisturizer.
7. Unwrap the top bun. Proceed to blow dry the roots with a fast drying tourmaline hair dryer. I'm currently obsessed with the T-3 Featherweight. No need to fuss with the ends as the leave-in conditioner and top bun will create natural soft waves.

8. You're done! It's time to go back to work feeling lighter, productive, and looking like you just stepped out of the salon! Aren't nooners fabulous?
