Introduce your man to three gym must haves: after workout body wash & body powder from Spongeable, Jack Black, and MenScience.
The upside of a man dedicating a few hours each week to keeping his bulging muscles in check is that us ladies get to enjoy the efforts of all of his hard work. The downside: Still high after a charge-filled workout, he forgets that he isn’t quite smelling like a bed of roses as he goes in for that “hello” hug, a hug that promptly repels us backwards struggling for a breath of fresh air.
With your man in mind, these post-gym must-have products were created to make him hug-ready after a hard workout.
Kindly offer your gym rat Spongeable Shower-Gel-in-a-Sponge for Men ($5.99, ulta.com) – a hypoallergenic, anti-microbial sponge filled with fragrant, skin-rejuvenating shower gel. He’ll get over 20 uses out of this olive oil, glycerin and shea butter-infused sponge which not only cleans his sweat-ridden skin, but keeps that very skin looking young for years to come since it’s also infused with vitamns A &E (antioxidants which slow the aging process).
Can’t massage your man’s muscle aches away after a serious workout? No worries because he can handle this by himself in the shower with Jack Black Performance Remedy Body Rehab Scrub & Muscle Soak ($35, sephora.com). ‘Body Soak’ contains eucalyptus and rosemary to help loosen knots & increase circulation and arnica and epsom salts to help relieve tension and soothe aching muscles. What’s more, ‘Body Rehab’ removes dead skin and contains shea butter & glycerin to smooth rough skin.
Once your man is nice and clean, he should use a body powder like MenScience Advanced Body Powder ($16, menscience.com) to keep his armpits and ‘other’ private parts dry so he doesn’t experience chafing or friction. Seeing a grown man wince in pain is so not sexy.
