Looking good while working out

This blog’s tagline is “Health, fitness and vanity.” There is quite a lot of talk on health and fitness but I count just two posts on vanity – one about how I have too many workout clothes and the other on the how endurance athletes have quite attractive body types to me. Does this mean I’m not as vain as I thought I was? :)

Today I’m going to talk about something quite bimbiotic – which is how to look good while working out. As you can tell, this post is targeted toward the female population because I have this impression that guys don’t really have the same hangups as we do about looking pretty while sweating!

My three tips to looking good while working out are:

  1. Put on makeup that doesn’t look like makeup
  2. Wear flattering clothes
  3. Prettify your hair

Ideally and practically speaking, you wouldn’t be wearing any makeup at all when you’re exercising. Your pores should be allowed to breathe and it’s nice not to get powder all over your towel when you’re wiping down. But unless you have perfect skin, you’re not going to look very pretty exercising bare faced. That doesn’t mean that you start caking on foundation and three layers of mascara like Kim Kardashian at the gym.
