Life doesn’t slow down when your period comes to visit and neither should you! Whether you’re working a full shift or headed to the gym, you should use products that you can rely on to support your lead role. That's why U by Kotex and SweetSpot Labs at Target are teaming up to help girls on the go, go with the flow and take charge of their time of the month. #PeriodPower
As a girl on the go, I don't always eat the best, which is why the gym is so important to me. Making sure that my body works off excess calories in fun workout classes keeps me motivated to be consistent in my workout routine. Sometimes for busy lifestyles, it's hard to go home to get a shower in between the gym and your next engagement. That's why I keep these essentials in my gym bag at all times to keep me fresh after a workout.
1. U by Kotex Pads: My mom would always say to me "never leave home without a few pads" and that is advice that I live by. There is nothing worse than having your "monthly friend" show up when you least expected her. Now, I make sure my gym bag is fully stocked with a few pads for me and a few extra just in case I need to share. I love these U by Kotex Pads because they're ultra thin, flexible, and they keeps me dry throughout my workout.
2. Washcloth & Towel: I love to feel clean after I've sweat through my clothes so I make sure I keep a clean cloth and towel in my gym bag for a hot shower in the locker room. There is no better feeling than cool air hitting freshly washed skin.
3. SweetSpot Labs Gentle Wash (Vanilla Blossom): We all know normal soap can be a bit harsh on our lady parts especially during that time of the month. That's why SweetSpot Labs has created a soap free and glycerin free wash to help you feel fresh after your workout. The reason why I love this product is because it's made up of 97% natural ingredients such as aloe vera, coconut oil, sunflower oil, and jojoba oil. SweetSpot Labs Gentle Wash is also recommended by Gynecologist AND was created by women! #PeriodPower
4. Ibuprofen: I always keep a few ibuprofen tablets in my gym bag just in case cramps want to try and ruin my workout. Cramps make even the most exciting workouts a drag, so as soon as I feel an ache arise, I eat a light meal and take a few tablets to subside my discomfort.
5. SweetSpot Labs On-the-go Wipes: If you're in the need of a quick pick-me-up, these are the perfect match for you! I love the Sweetspot Labs On-the-go Wipes for my restroom visits especially for my heavier days. Each cloth feels super soft and is covered in gentle cleansers that refresh you instantly. Want to know an additional bonus? It's 98% natural and cruelty free!
