After running the 2017 NYC Marathon, I had a strong desire to better myself in every sense of the word. Training my mind and body for the 26-mile challenge heightened my awareness of how I eat, how I rest and suddenly, I found myself applying those healthy habits to my daily life even after I crossed the finish line. To continue on my wellness journey, I made a New Year’s resolution and signed up for the Rome Marathon this April.

Now, that I’m preparing for my run throughout the city of Rome I’m focusing on the fitness and beauty items that will boost my performance level—all while taking care of my body inside and out.

During the winter, most forgo SPF and tend to reach for heavy moisturizers due to the cold dry air. To keep skin its healthiest daily sunscreen protection is essential as damaging sun exposure can occur even on the chilliest days.

My go-to for sunscreen as of lately has been Lancome’s Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 as a moisturizing base. The creamy texture applies smoothly onto your skin without the chalky residue most SPF’s leave. For added protection, I also use Derm Institute’s Cellular Brightening Daily Defense SPF50 PA+++. This formula evens out skin tones and repairs DNA damage.

SPF formulas tend to leave your skin with a flat matte texture, so adding a swipe of highlighter will give your face instant dimension. Fenty Beauty’s Matchstix has matte and shimmer textures that give you definition. The formula is light with a high pay off, and a little goes a long way. Another option is the classic NARS Multiple that comes in a range of iridescent nudes and demure blush tones to compliment any skin tone. For those looking for a natural, vegan and cruelty free product, the NOTO Hydra Highlighter is the simplest way to look dewy and glowy in a flash.
