Fall is here and most of us are busier than ever. But that doesn’t mean our beauty and fitness routines have to fall to the wayside. Trae Bodge, Smart Shopping Expert for GiftCardGranny.com, is here to share her favorite products to carry us through the fall season feeling healthy, fit and beautiful despite our busy schedules.


Beyond Yoga collection at Saks via ShopRunner.com – First thing’s first – apparel! I love the versatility of these pieces from the Beyond Yoga line, which is available at Saks. They’ll take you from the gym or yoga studio, right to brunch! I ordered these items using my ShopRunner membership so they arrived to me in just 2 days and with free shipping. ShopRunner offers its members free return shipping, too, so it’s a great service to have if you’re too busy to head to the mall and would rather shop online.


Yoyo Mat Self-Rolling Fitness & Yoga Mat from The Grommet ($79.95) – Yoga mats tend to curl up and even slide, but this mat has built-in steel bands and a non-slip pattern to keep it in place. It also rolls and unrolls in one quick motion, thanks to the steel bands.


MISSION HydroActive Max Instant Cooling Towel ($19.97 at Home Depot and Amazon)

The HydroActive Max Instant Cooling Towel, which Serena Williams and Duane Wade both love, keeps you cool and makes preventing heat-related illnesses easy. When wet, the towel cools down 30 degrees below your average body temperature and stays cool for up to two hours. All you need to do to activate the cooling power is wet, wring and snap. It’s washable, reusable and the technology will never wash out.

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing productsMicellar water is a gentle, yet highly effective way to clean the skin. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean and refreshed without over-drying. I love the NEW Towelettes ($6.99) for on the go, and the liquid ($8.99) for use at home. If you’re more of a liquid person, they also have a cute travel size! Drugstores

HelloFresh’s 20 Minute Meals ($9.99 per serving) can be ordered to arrive once per week, perfect for those nights when you take your favorite class after work and have limited time. HelloFresh.com serves up tasty, healthy meals take 20-Minutes to prepare with ready-made sauces, pre-chopped vegetables, and fast-cooking ingredients and can serve 2-4.

Molekule ($799) is one of the most up to date air purification systems available and offers a whole new way to make your air cleaner than ever, with two filters: a pre-filter that captures larger particles such as dust and pet hair and a nano-filter breaks down pollutants at the molecular level using a patented technology called Photo Electrochemical Oxidation or PECO.   This filter works to eliminate indoor air pollution and is able to destroy pollutants 1000 times smaller than traditional HEPA filters.
