The Best Beauty Products To Keep In Your Gym Bag
Let’s talk fitness: No matter what time of day you prefer to work up a sweat, it takes serious strategy to assemble a perfectly curated gym bag. Not wanting to be without a crucial product yet aiming to achieve a minimalist routine for maximum productivity at your exercise studio, refer to this packing list of essentials to leave you fresh after a workout.
Especially useful for those who like to work up a midday or evening sweat (likely after you've put on your daily face), take one of these gentle wipes to your complexion and décolletage to rid of makeup, sweat and impurities—the calming ingredients will also help soothe a post-workout flush.
Notice a trend? When it comes to the gym, wipes are your friend. As traditional stick deodorant can often break or flake when rattled around in a purse or on-the-go bag, these Pacifica wipes (formulated with natural essential oils and coconut milk) are our new hero product. We love these not only for their portability, but also for their aluminum-free formula that still manages to keep us odor-free.
The name of this brush says it all—on account of its compact shape and innovative design, this styler takes up minimal space in your bag and effectively detangles post-gym locks. The removable cover protects its bristles from catching wayward dust that might be lingering in your bag.
A multitasking mist is an easy way to revive hair and skin after a workout. Not only does it leave you smelling better (thanks to rose essential oil), but this product also contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients to soothe and renew the complexion no matter your skin type.
Say you squeezed in a light session at the gym (weights day, perhaps?) and you have somewhere to be soon after—washing your hair might not be an option. In this case, a travel-sized can of texture spray can be a total game-changer. This product adds volume and definition to locks while controlling grease and oil—think of it as a dry shampoo and styling agent all in one.
If you have to leave a fitness studio with wet hair, keep your look polished by rocking a sleek topknot or low bun. These miracle stylers eliminate the need for countless bobby pins as the twisty shape touts the staying power of several. Simply twirl into the base of your hairdo and crisscross with another to lock hair in place.
Real estate in your on-the-go bag is precious—therefore, there's hardly room for a clunky can of shaving cream. This 3-in-1 design contains a refillable water cartridge, pre-shave soap bar and razor blade which makes for the perfect companion when showering at the gym.
