Fit bodies need fit skin—that’s the premise of Mio Skincare, a brand-new “no nasties” line from London. It’s intended for women who like to workout—or who just like great skin!
To celebrate the brand launch, we teamed up with Circuit of Change in New York City for three workouts. Spiritual-fitness guru Brian Delmonico led us through a series of yoga, martial arts, and boot-camp moves, leaving everyone feeling renewed, happy, and glowy.

Mio founder Sian Sutherland kicked off the event in her stylish Lucas Hugh jacket. (We also obsessed over the Londoner’s chic teal fringe.)
“We all get the concept of fit bodies and fit minds, and Mio is the final piece of fit skin,” Sutherland explains.
Here’s a cool twist: Delmonico began the class in savasana to reset students’ intention for their workout.
The class isn’t all Zen and mediation. Witness the series of rolling planks, among other heart-pounding, strengthening moves.
After the workouts, everyone dabbed on Workout Wonder, a cooling post workout gel that felt amazing on the back of the neck. Mio’s Jill Dunk chatted about the Mio skin-care line to natural beauty gurus, Sandra Chiu of Treatment by Lanshin, Jessa Blades of Blades Natural Beauty, and Britta Plug of Treatment by Lanshin.
One of Mio’s most popular new products is Liquid Yoga (pictured front, left in green). A soothing muscle soak made with mineral salts. It’s like restorative yoga in a bottle for your tired body.
Of course, everyone left with a Mio swag bag, full of the brand-new products and an inspirational tee. “Small daily changes are the key to staggering long term results”—in life and in skin care.

To keep the post-workout glow going, Doctor Green and Glo juices from Juice Press were served—with special made-for-Mio labels!

At the evening event, candlelight bathed the room for the Circuit of Change class, which featured live drumming during the workout.
Master Flywheel instructor Shay Kostabi stopped by for the evening workout. Can we just take a minute to admire her amazing Michi leggings?
Tracy Carlinsky and Alisa Holzer of Brooklyn Bodyburn. Don’t let their pretty disposition fool you: if you’ve taken their class, you know these two are tough-as-nails in the studio.
