Thanks to the rapid rise of TikTok, we’re now able to witness an increasingly fast and diverse cycle of trends within the beauty and wellbeing space. Whether it be make-up, fitness or any other aspect of the beauty spectrum, it seems there’s a new innovation to try out every week. Sunburn blush, the ‘Clean Girl aesthetic’, skin and hair slugging, but what’s to be found of fit girl beauty?
After all, standing the test of time is the sure-fire fact that in order to both look and feel our best, exercise is essential. Regardless of the exact form that our activity regime takes, we know that boosting our step count and getting our heart rates up on the daily is for the greater good. Luminous skin, stronger immunity and better mental health are just some of the benefits that we can reap from carving out time to boost our fitness levels.
However, for all of the added vitality that exercise leaves us with, comes the unwanted effects. Sweat—particularly if you’ve opted for a workout under the sun—and build-up that leads to greasy hair are just some of the downsides to keeping fit that can leave us feeling less than our best.
However, a regular workout regime needn’t come at the price of completely sacrificing freshness for fitness. Upped activity should leave you with a palpable glow that shines from the inside out, and we could all do with a helping hand when it comes to maximising this. So, without further ado, read on for Vogue Singapore’s curation of eight fit girl beauty essentials for your arsenal that will go that extra mile—perhaps literally—to keep you clean and happy amid your active lifestyle.
