Fresh on the Fly
Eco-friendly products that take you from sweaty to ready in a flash
by Ashlee Piper
Few pleasures are as delicious as greeting the day with a restorative workout followed by the ever popular Chicago tradition of brunch or tackling errands. That said, if you’re really rocking your practice, the transition from sweaty studio to chic street can require a little primping. These picks stash lightly in your bag, are eco- and animal-friendly, and will help you maintain that post-Savasana refreshment without a lot of fuss.
ROSE LIP TINT IN CORAL ROSE
Maintain that dewy Vinyasa glow with this coconut oil- and Bulgarian rose-packed sheer tint. Imparts a Jane Austen movie-freshness when tapped on lips and cheeks, yet is sheer enough to moisturize cuticles and dry patches. And for the gents or color-averse, there’s a non-tinted option. Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Lip Tint in Coral Rose, $24.
SKINNY SKINNY ORGANIC DRY SHAMPOO
Manage a sweaty mane with this all-natural, heavenscented dry shampoo. Sprinkle on palms and rub into scalp for instant refreshment and volume (perfect for that polished post-class topknot). And, it’s so gentle, it can be used on the body and shaken into stinky shoes for a refresh. And the rose and black pepper scent is clean and gender-neutral.
