An easy fix to one of the biggest dilemma's women face whether you're headed out to the water or putting on shorts for a run!?
I hope everyone has had a happy and active summer! This summer has been crazy busy for me with training, races, gardening, camping, yard work and all the other fun summer activities that come around this time of year. One of my favorite things to do is get active in the water whether that's the pool for laps or a lake for stand up paddle boarding.
Getting in the pool can be a great form of exercise. Swimming or running laps in water increases your heart rate and strengthens your muscles, not to mention it’s the most refreshing form of exercise when the mercury is high. Another great form of exercise is Stand Up Paddleboarding. When you’re first starting out with this sport, it serves as a strength workout as you work on pulling your bodyweight out of the water after you fall off of the board. Once you get the hang of it and spend more time out of the water, your core muscles work to keep you upright on the board, and your obliques go to work as you paddle forward. Eventually, you can paddle your way to a great cardio workout!
The only downside is those activities send many of us ladies into the bathroom for a razor and shaving cream before we head out. Precious time and water lost having to jump in a shower to shave before you go and then having to shower all over again. What I’ve been guilty of doing in the past is quickly running a razor over dry skin (ouch!), or using conditioner which leaves a film that just doesn’t feel right! I’m so glad ran across this breakthrough product from Busy Beauty that is a showerless shave gel, perfect for this warm weather dilemma.
At first, I was hesitant to try it because right before it arrived, I ended up with a poison ivy rash thanks to my dogs. The last thing I wanted to do was try a new product that would be in between my stinging skin and razor. After reading the product label I took a chance, after all, it was labeled sensitive skin and also contains natural essential oils like tea tree oil, ginger root oil, eucalyptus and clove oil which are all work as skin antiseptics and protectants.
I applied the product and shaved as I usually would, with one difference I wasn’t using any water! The gel didn’t have an overpowering scent and was clear which made it feel nice and clean. When I was finished shaving, I simply used the excess left on my skin as a moisturizer. I’ve always had very dry skin, and after using this soothing product I noticed my skin was very soft, this was probably the best post shave moisturizer I’ve ever tried! This gel is going to be a staple in my toiletry bag from now on!
Another thing I liked about Busy Beauty showerless shave gel was that it is an environmentally conscious product because it’s paraben, alcohol, and cruelty-free. The product container is conveniently 3.4 ounces which makes it, purse, small bathroom cabinet and TSA friendly. So the next time you find yourself on an adventure, I recommend having Busy Beauty Showerless Shave Gel on hand.
