How to Freshen up after Gym Class for Girls Who Don't Have Time to Shower ...

By Holly

Some of us love gym class, but most of us hate it. No matter what your opinion is on physical education, you're required to take it. Since you have to show up for the class anyway, you might as well try your hardest in it. Don't worry about sweating so much that you look like a mess for the rest of the school day, because here are a few different ways to freshen up after gym class:

1 Run Your Wrists under Cold Water

If you leave gym class and can't stop sweating, there's an easy fix. All you have to do is run to the nearest sink to place your wrists under cold water. That should lower your body temperature, and stop the sweat from falling down your face.

2 Use Dry Shampoo

Even if your school has a shower for you to use, you probably won't have time to hop in it before your next class. If you cringe at the idea of spending the rest of the day with greasy hair, you should bring some dry shampoo with you. All you have to do is spray it onto your hair and then blend in whatever pieces of white powder remain. Then your hair will look as fresh and full as it would if you actually washed it.

3 Create a New Hairstyle

If you forgot to pack your dry shampoo in your bag, then hopefully you have a hairband on you. It doest matter if you spent your first few classes with your hair down, because you can spend the rest of the day with your hair up. Your best bet is to stick it in a ponytail or a side braid, because the style will help hide whatever grease is in it.

4 Blot Away Your Sweat

Make sure that you bring a clean towel or some baby wipes with you to school. That way, you'll be able to blot off all of your sweat. Not only will it make you look better in the moment, but it'll stop the sweat from leading to clogged pores, which can cause acne.

5 Only Reapply Essential Makeup

You don't need to put blush on your face after gym class, because your face will already be red enough. You should also stop yourself from putting on a new coat of foundation, because your sweat could wipe it all away. Instead, you should just swipe on some more mascara and lipgloss. That's really all you need to get through the day.

6 Apply a Light Body Spray

You should always apply deodorant after gym class, even if you don't think you need it. It's also a great idea to spritz on a light body spray to feel fresh. You don't want any scent that's too heavy, which is why you should avoid using perfume. A strong scent like that mixed with the smell of sweat is off-putting.

7 Change Your Socks

If you wear your gym sneakers to all of your other classes, then you should at least bring an extra pair of socks to change into. You don't want your feet to smell, and socks are easy to pack in your bag.

Don't be afraid of putting in all of your effort during gym class, because there are simple ways to clean yourself up after a workout. What other things do you do to freshen up after gym class?
