After a lunchtime run, laps in the fitness-center pool, or half an our of intense interval training, you have limited time to shower, change, and get ready for the rest of the day. To avoid looking disheveled after every workout, you need body-care products to handle smell, sweat, and dry skin. We found products that are easy to use, tuck into a gym bag or backpack, and, most important, keep you looking your best, fast.
Paper Shower Body Wipes
A good post-workout cloth that doesn't smell like a baby wipe or contain skin-drying alcohol is hard to find. Paper Shower is a two-cloth system that tucks easily into gear bags for a quick cleanup when you're nowhere near a shower. You just wipe down arms, legs, neck, even your face (it's gentle enough) with the soap-and-water soaked cloth and then mop with the dry one. Both wipes are 10 inches x 12 inches and cover a lot of skin. We like the Natural version best, because it contains fewer chemicals yet still does a fabulous job.
