Pretty Athletic in a gym bag near you!

Working out in the gym or at home will always leave you feeling better, looking better may be a different story short-term! I have been looking for a skin-care range that will reduces redness and leave my skin properly hydrated. So I was delighted to find – Pretty Athletic! The first skincare brand designed for female fitness enthusiasts. 
The lady behind the range is Leyla Cooper, she found herself returning to the office after a morning run or lunchtime workout looking sweaty as opposed to serene! Her usual skincare products and facial oils just didn’t seem to do the trick and Leyla noticed that there was very little on the market in terms of specific sports skincare, beyond foot spray and muscle rub. Hence she set out to create her own range and Pretty Athletic was born.
"Whether your concern is hot, sweaty skin prone to redness or breakouts following intensive gym sessions or dry, dehydrated skin after exercising outdoors and frequent showering, we have the product for you. We know that you want to return to your serene self afterwards – and quick!” Leyla Cooper, Pretty Athletic Director and Co-Founder
Each product has been designed to soothe and/or cool the skin after exercise, with a synergistic blend of botanical ingredients – such as plant oils and botanical extracts. Ingredients include aloe vera for its soothing properties, rosehip oil for its nourishing benefits and witch hazel to tighten pores.
The range contains no ‘nasties’ such as parabens, silicones, mineral oils, dyes, PEGs or sulfates. Plus all products and packaging are made in England, meaning less of a carbon footprint too. Pretty Athletic’s sleek, sporty tubes are perfectly portable and easy to fit in among your gym kit – meaning no more having to tote around heavy jars and pots of moisturiser.
