From Sweaty to Chic: How to Clean Up in under 5 minutes

We're thrilled to once again feature Jacquelyn from our favorite fitness blog, fitsouffle! Jacquelyn lives in Chicago and is a NASM certified personal trainer and Fletchers Pilates teacher, among other accolades. For years she has motivated us to live our healthiest lives, so we love sharing her genius with you. Today, she's giving us her invaluable tips for going from sweaty to chic in under 5 minutes. With our schedules, we definitely find this useful! (We also admire her bravery photographing herself for the cause after teaching an hour long bootcamp and running 2 miles in the rain! Although we think she's always darling. She cleans up nicely, doesn't she?)

"It's great to be back on Celeste & Pearl again! Today I have put together my often daily routine of what I call "Sweaty to Chic." Hope you enjoy and take some tips with you!

There are some days where you have to choose between getting in a workout or running errands, or maybe you don't have to choose! You can do both by using these quick tips to clean up and get going without anyone knowing you just worked out. I teach bootcamp on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and I have less than five minutes between class and a client to clean up... it's possible!

Products from top: Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist (Travel Size), Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion SPF 15, Sephora Travel Hairbrush, Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes, Bobbi Brown Cream Concelare, Secret Invisible Solid, Nars Blush, Nars Bronzer, Trish McEvoy High Volume Mascara, Eco Tools Travel Brush Set

How to:

1) Take hair down and brush, spray lightly with glossing mist.  It adds a clean smell and tames fly-aways.
2) Clean face with a Neutrogena cleansing towelette.
3) Apply lotion, creamy concealer, and a light touch of bronzer and blush only if needed (sometimes your post workout glow is enough!).
4) Reapply deodorant to stay smelling fresh :-)
5) Apply mascara to brighten eyes.
6) Simply braid hair to the side to look a little more polished than your workout pony.

Voila! Ready to tackle the world smelling fresh and looking CHIC!"
