How to get the sports luxe look

With athletic fashions to show off your beach body, summer’s the ideal time to try out this blend of high style and sporty design. Here are four ways to nail the athleisure trend.


Skin: get a sporty sheen

Your natural glow after a gentle workout is a universally flattering look, with rosy cheeks and a healthy dewy sheen that make-up artists have been recreating on the catwalks and red carpets.

Since you can’t step on a treadmill every time you head out on the town, you can recreate it too. The key to the sporty glow is a smooth, even skin texture and a dewy complexion. Try Olay Regenerist CC Cream, which blends the power of a serum, an SPF15 moisturiser and a sheer foundation for instantly perfected skin.

Hair: score a sporty up-do

Sporty hair is sleek, simple and – most importantly – easy. You can capture the essence of summer's sport luxe vibe with a clean, pulled-back ponytail.

The position of the ponytail is key: aim for the nape of the neck where there is a natural indentation. This will keep it hanging completely vertical.

Fringe-wearers can blow-dry it straight and set with hairspray, while everyone else can part their hair in the middle for a fuss-free look.

Try drying the hair first with a heat-protection spray such as Aussie Miracle Recharge Take the Heat Conditioning Spray and parting it with a fine comb. To finish, saturate the hair with a shine spray such as Aussie Miracle Hairspray Shine and Hold to get a smooth, flat finish.

Body: keep your legs ultra-sleek

Athletic looks with short hems mean more attention on your legs. Make sure you get maximum benefit from all those lunges by keeping your pins looking sleek.

Celebrity body therapist Nathalie Eleni recommends exfoliating with a body scrub to smooth uneven skin and provide a more absorbent base for moisturiser. Next, swap your rusty old blades for a razor with moisturising bars, such as the Venus & Olay Razor. Finish your sleek routine with a moisturising lotion with SPF.

Make-up: nail luscious nude lips

You can recreate the natural flush of colour that exercise brings to your lips with a lip balm. Use one with a hint of pink so you get that glossy hydrated look along with a gentle flush of colour.
