Refreshing Post-Workout Products to Cool You Down

After cranking out a spin session or busting your butt in a HIIT class, it's safe to say you're probably drenched in sweat. Priority No.1: cooling down ASAP. Picking up a few beauty products with cooling ingredients can really go the extra mile post-workout when it comes to helping you feel refreshed. Shape beauty director Kate Sandoval Box shares three go-to hair and skin products to pack in your gym bag (or keep at home in your bathroom) to make the transition from working out to whatever's next a lot easier. Best of all, each product works its magic in two minutes or less! (You can also try these Korean Beauty Products for a Post-Workout Glow.)

 

Use a minty shampoo (1 minute)

Work a shampoo that has mint extract into your roots to simulate circulation. It's like a shot of chilled espresso for your scalp. (Try Oribe Cleansing Crème, $44; oribe.com)

Chill your skin (2 minutes)

Massage a refreshing gel into your achy muscles post-workout. This stuff has cooling camphor and menthol in it, so it will relieve any tension and soreness. (Try Elemis Instant Refreshing Gel, $55; elemis.com)

Give underarms a wipe down (30 seconds)

Since reapplying solid deodorant when you're already sweaty can result in a goopy mess, use a deodorant wipe instead. They go on crisp and clean and wash away armpit odor as you apply. Try Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes, $9; target.com)
