YC instructor CHELSEA FOSS shares how she keeps her skin glowing when she hops off the podium...
What are your skincare must-haves?
This past year, I’ve tried to be more pro-skincare than pro-makeup. A gentle cleanser, toner, moisturizer and sunscreen are a MUST for me.
What are your go-to products?
• Cleanser: Indie Lee’s Rosehip Cleanser
• Toner: Heritage Store’s Rose Petals Rosewater
• Sunscreen: Coola’s Classic Sunscreen (SPF 30)
• Evening moisturizer: Indie Lee’s Lavender Camomile Moisturizing Oil
Tell us your top beauty products.
While I try to wear the least amount of makeup that I can, I still have two must-haves: Benefit’s Fakeup Hydrating Under Eye Concealer (run, don’t walk to go buy this!) and Glossier’s Boy Brow (to tame and fill the brows).
Do you ride with makeup on?
I prefer to ride with a clean face. Sweat and makeup do not mix well!
Tell us about your post-class skincare routine.
First and foremost, get out of the sweaty clothes! If I’m not immediately going home post-teaching or class, I’ll pack a change of clothes. Staying in your clothes after a workout traps in all of the toxins your body just sweat out and that’s not a good look.
I recently discovered two body bars that have truly worked wonders for my skin — Swedish Dream Salt Soap and Seaweed Soap. I use the Seaweed formula daily and the Salt formula every other or every three days as an exfoliant. Neither dry me out, which is crucial when I have to shower multiple times a day.
Finally, can you share the beauty secrets that you swear by?
Yes! Two words: eyelash extensions. Mascara (even waterproof) is not ideal for indoor cycling or sweating in general — unless you want to look like Alice Cooper in class or spend 10 minutes aggressively scrubbing your lashes. Eyelash extensions give you volume and length without the mess!
