The holiday season is upon us and choosing a fitness gift or a stocking stuffing for that runner in your life may be a challenge.  

Here is my fitness gift guide with some gift ideas from skincare to self-care. For my skincare needs before and after a run, I use Zyderma.

Shop the complete Zyderma Collection:

Gentle Foaming Cleanser:

 

The soft and airy foam will gently cleanse your skin from impurities without stripping the lipid barrier.

This delicate and well-balanced formula promotes a healthy skin flora and is gentle enough for all ages, skin types, and conditions. Available: Full size 150 ml, Travel Size 50 ml and Refill/Concentrate for 150 ml

Konjac Sponge:

This highly absorbent facial sponge is handmade with food grade konjac powder and infused with fine-mesh tourmaline crystal powder. By respecting the integrity of the stratum corneum, this Konjac Facial Sponge provides excellent daily cleansing and exfoliation for a smooth and vibrant complexion.

Clarifying Cream:

This powerful multi-use product helps to improve the appearance of problematic skin of all ages and types.

Effective at regulating the skin’s microflora and strengthening its resistance to colonization of unwanted bacteria. 

Used as a serum, primer and moisturizer, this Clarifying Cream will support your skin’s natural healing process and provide protection against unwanted bacteria for up to 24 hours or until rinsed off. Available: 

Full Size 50 ml; 3 x 7.5 ml in a Discovery Set.

At Zyderma®, we take a forward-thinking, eco-scientific approach to daily skin care. Rather than replace the body’s mechanisms, products should support & strengthen our skin’s biome – a veritable “pharmacy” of microflora that are an integral part of a healthy appearance.

Blackhead Extraction Set:

If you’re going to pick, pick responsibly! This limited edition 24K gold and platinum extractor kit contain a fine point tweezer and a double loop comedone extractor.

LOKAI

Add a LOKAI classic bracelet to your athleisure wardrobe.

Inside the white bead is water from Mt. Everest and the black bead contains mud from the Dead Sea.

‘These elements inspire the wearers to find balance and there are some days you’re living your best life but it’s important to stay humble, while other days you’ve hit a low and it’s even more important to stay hopeful.’ – Lokai website.

B Yoga

I use the Everyday Mat 4 mm, for body-weight exercises, stretches, along with some lightweight training. 

It is a perfect size, lightweight, and is durable for whatever exercises I am doing that day.

FIRMA

I wear FIRMA Energy Wear to go running and look styling. The leggings are great to pair with a turtle neck or a cozy sweater. 

The Capri leggings are perfect for running for their comfort and performance-wise which helps with my muscle fatigue.

Dr. Teals

Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salts is part of my self-care toolkit. After a run, I enjoy soaking and relaxing in the bath with Epsom salts by Dr. Teals. I find it smooths my skin as well. It is an excellent stocking stufer.

Bare Foot Mask by Freeman – After a run, my feet get pampered by wearing a foot mask with disposable booties. 

The mask soothes and hydrates my feet and I don’t need to go to the spa. It makes a perfect stocking stuffer.

And, to keep my feet happy I use the Bare Foot, Foot Balm, it helps soften my dry skin and calluses.

I deal at times with leg muscle soreness after an intense run. 

I was introduced to the Conair Superlite Deep Tissue Massage Gun – this will help massage your tired sore muscles and joints.
