No matter what time of day you workout, we think it’s completely necessary to keep your gym bag packed with beauty essentials. When you are prepared, you are ready to tackle anything that comes up in your day.
To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite beauty items:
Makeup Remover Wipes:
These are perfect for taking off your makeup before you sweat it out and/or to refresh your skin after your workout. Cleansing your skin will ensure you minimize clogged pores and/or breakouts.
We love Bare Naked all natural Wipes by Josie Maran.
This is likely something you already carry around with you. Sometimes we need a little extra throughout the day; especially after a tough workout. Try Lovefresh Super Strength Deodorant. It’s natural and proudly Canadian (like us)!
The best way to avoid getting sick is by washing our hands. However, this isn’t always convenient. So having your own sanitizer at the gym is essential.
Five Minute Face:
These five makeup products are all you need to freshen up your look before you leave the gym: B.B. Cream, bronzer, mascara, lip gloss and concealer
Hair Tie or Clip:
How many times have you arrived at the gym only to discover you forget a hair tie? So annoying, right? We like to keep a bunch on hand. Besides, who knows, someone else might need one and you could save the day! We especially love this colourful bow hair tie set from Anthropologie.
This amazing spray turns into a powder and can be applied to your roots to reduce oil. It extends the life of your blow-dry in an instant. Unfortunately, if you get really sweaty during your workout, this probably won’t help you.
We can’t get enough of V.I.P. (Volume In Powder) by Kerastase.
This is great to have on hand; especially if you don’t have time to shower right after your workout but need to freshen up. A quick spritz and you are good to go. Try Calgon’s budget-friendly Hawaiian Ginger Fragrance Body Mist.
