Colleen's beauty stats: Early 20s; thick, short, curly hair, never dyed before; clear skin with the occasional breakout.
"Gearing up to train for my first marathon means I have to spend some serious time at the gym. Whether I'm logging miles before work or after, here are the products I use to stay beautiful while working up a sweat."
Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes
"If I head to the gym after work, I always take off my makeup with these towelettes. They prevent breakouts and clean my face entirely, so I dont leave a gross residue behind when wiping my brow with the gym towels while on the treadmill. The refills also come with a handy hard travel case that you can easily throw in your gym bag."
Scünci Headwraps with No-Slip Grip
"These headbands are perfect for my Victoria Beckham-inspired cut. I can throw my hair half up on into a tiny low ponytail and use these to keep the flyaways out of my face. They are lined with a grip so they don't slide out of your hair but also don't leave your pony with a kink in it."

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Heat Defeat Protective Styling Spray
"I have ridiculously curly hair that I do not want. To solve this I flat-iron my hair every day. (I know, I know!) This spray protects my locks from the intense heat from my flatiron and leaves it shiny. I spray it all over my hair before I blow-dry and again on each section as I flat-iron. It's also great for the humid summer nights when I can't pretend I have straight hair."
CHI Adjustable Turbo Flat Style Iron by Farouk
"I am queen of the flatirons. I've tried them all. The CHI is the only one that actually straightens my curls and doesn't make my hair frizzy. If you use a high-end flatiron like this, you don't need to splurge on an equally expensive hair dryer. I dry my hair using the gym dryers or an old one from home. To dry, I flip my hair over my head and, with a flat brush, part my hair down the middle at the base while pushing it forward as I dry. When it's dry, the CHI warms up in 30 seconds and is ready to go. By separating my hair into three sections (bottom, middle, top), I can make sure it's perfectly straight without missing a chunk."
