Being female’s in a male dominated sport, we have quite a few different struggles. One of the things that are often overlooked is maintaining a "girly" image, even when we are riding in the dirt and mud, and smell like gas and sweat. So, What to do? Not to worry, QuadGirls.com is here to help! We have the tips and tricks to stay beautiful at the track after the helmet comes off. Dirt on your face? Never a disgrace! Situation: You had a great race, and came off the track to have a bunch of people waiting to take pictures, and congratulate you. Problem? The track was dusty, and you know your face is probably covered with the dirt and grime. No time to get to a shower, and no place to wash your face and nowhere to hide. What to do?! Solution: Baby wipes can be a racing girls best friend. From dirty hands, to your face, a quick wipe can be perfect to clean up fast at the track when your away from a sink. Not to mention, they are ‘throw-aways’ and wont need washed which is especially important when you come back home. Ware Wolf Legs Without the Full Moon? Situation: You’re at a really warm track for the weekend with your truck, a tent, and a handy dandy port-a-john. After the race, you want to put some shorts on, but your legs are hairier than most of the men there. What to do? Solution: Leg hair can grow so fast, but there are many ways to slow it down. Of course there is the traditional waxing gimmicks that supposedly “don’t hurt”, and I wish you luck with that. But for me, keeping my legs clean shaved starts before I leave for the weekend. Shaving with hair conditioner will leave you leg hair thinner, softer, and less noticeable. This quick fix will last a few days, and although your hair will grow, it wont be as easy to see. Crampin Your Style? Situation: It’s that wonderful time of month once again, but this time its also a big race or ride. Your cramping up so bad you can barely stand up, let alone ride. To tell the guys “I can’t ride today” is defiantly out of the question, but riding seems to be to much too. What to do?? Solution: For some time now, women have been able to look to menstrual pills such as Midol to solve some of the cramping and bloating. Midol can often be a very useful tool, and for some, is enough. For other ladies, a stick on heating pad by Playtex can be a great relief, and will move with you when your ride. Helmet Fro’s are for the Bro’s Situation: You just came back from a great ride, and you’re about to take your helmet off and strut your stuff through the pits, until you remember what’s under that helmet… HELMET HAIR!!! Solution: When you’re riding, a helmet is always a must, which also means helmet hair. Not to fear, lady racers/riders have been working on this folly for quite some time. Racers such as Angela Moore and Heather Byrd wear their hair in a French braid to keep it neat and together under the helmet. For the ladies who don’t have the dreads for braids, try using a bandana. Bandana’s are cheap, and can be stylish. It’s easy to get a color that matches your outfit, and can be worn under the helmet and will keep sweat out of your eyes. All In all, as ladies and racers, we have a little more to struggle with than just the average guy. Keep these tips in mind and you can keep beauty in racing. ________________________________________________________________ What are some beauty tips you ladies have to share?
