Sweaty yoga hair, blotchy gym skin, no thanks! Olympic swimmer and LensCrafters lifestyle expert, Natalie Coughlin, shares her secrets to looking great after a workout.

Avoid caking on makeup
I love BB Cream! It’s an all-in-one tinted facial cream that conceals, corrects, and protects (it has SPF built in) skin. Rub it in like regular moisturizer. You’ll look fresh-faced and glowy–instantly! Plus, it’s not heavy and won’t run while you’re working out and sweating.

Put your hair up
I always brush conditioner through my hair with a wide-toothed comb after a gentle shampoo. After I hit the showers, I spritz leave-in conditioner through damp strands and put my hair up in a quick chignon. Voila–ready to go!

Buff and hydrate skin
I dry brush my skin (use a body brush, loofah, or exfoliating gloves) to exfoliate. Then I slather body oil or a heavier lotion on still-damp skin after showering.

Wear glasses
I like to wear glasses at the gym to give my eyes a break from my contacts and it keeps my specs from drying out. And I never forget to pack my prescription sunglasses. I love oversized wayfarers and aviators–the classics!
