Your In-The-Gym Style: You’re on the go, and your gym regimen needs to be able to keep up. There’s no time for dilly-dallying – you mean business. And not just in the spin room. A successful sweat sesh means efficiency in the locker room, too. You like to look your best in and out of the gym, meaning that having the proper products and beauty essentials on hand is all a part of the routine.
What You Need in Your Bag: You don’t want to do even more heavy listing after you’re done with your workout. For you, minimalistic and multitasking versions of your at-home faves is key: dry shampoo that also pumps up the volume, a foundation that does double duty as a moisturizer, even a tiny flat iron you can stash in a side pocket. Whether you’re heading to a meeting, meet-up, or the farmer’s market, here are the twelve beauty essentials to stash in your gym bag to primp in record time…
KLORANE DRY SHAMPOO WITH OAT MILK
How we ever lived without dry shampoo, we have no idea. But this waterless wonder is the key to staying fresh and clean when you’re on the go. Klorane’s dry shampoo leads the pack as a grease buster, volumizer, all-natural wonder.
MIO GYM KIT
When you’re short on space for post-sweat essentials, this is your go-to kit. Clean Slate workout swipes remove makeup pre-workout, sweat and grime post-workout, and help you freshen up in record time. Mio’s kit also includes Workout Wonder muscle recovery gel to help you beat the post-workout soreness blues.
JUICE BEAUTY ORGANICS TO GO
Is this not the cutest grab n’ go beauty set ever? This tiny but mighty five-piece to-go set has a little of everything you’ll need for a mini facial apres gym. Our favorite is The Hydrating Mist, which we stash in our pockets for a cooling post-run spritz before hitting up yoga.
SIMPLE EXFOLIATING WIPES
Enriched with vitamin B5, vitamin E, and aloe vera, these two sided wipes cleanse on one side, exfoliate on the other – no rinsing required. The best part? They’re at a price point we can so get behind.
LIVE THE PROCESS FLORAL-PRINT STRETCH-JERSEY HEADBAND
Whether you’re wearing it to tame your flyaways at Flywheel or make a statement in savasana, this LTP headband keeps you looking just as gorgeous as its delicate floral prints.
LAVANILA LABORATORIES THE HEALTHY DEODORANT - VANILLA LAVENDER
The only thing you should be getting a whiff of at the gym is the sweet smell of success. Stay stink-free with an all-natural deodorant free of harsh chemicals and aluminum – we’re fans of Lavanila Laboratories’ Healthy Deodorant in Vanilla Lavender.
WHISH THREE WHISHES BODY BUTTER
You know keeping your skin hydrated is a must, but the last thing you want to put on after a long, hard workout is greasy body lotion. Enter this decadent organic body butter from Whish that’s just the right size to stash in any gym bag.
ULTRA CHI MINI IRON
We jumped for joy when we found out our fave styling iron had a little sister! CHI’s Original Ceramic Hairstyling Iron minature version features 1″ ceramic plates and heats to 392 degrees Farenheit to help you create any slicked, flipped, curled, and twirled style you can imagine – or just smooth out that ponytail crease post-workout.
T3 FEATHERWEIGHT COMPACT
Your gym doesn’t have hair dryers in its locker rom? Not a problem. No one wants to lug around a whole set of hair tools to and from the gym, which is why we love this lightweight, compact ionic option. Infrared energy dries your hair at record speed, so you can spend more time sprinting, less time primping.
BOSCIA GREEN TEA BLOTTING LINENS
Raise your hand if you keep sweating long after your workout! For the active gal plagued with overactive skin, these blotting tissues are your new BFF. Formulated for all skin types and made from green tea and 100% percent natural Abaca Tree fibers, these silky sheets also deliver a boost of antioxidants and antibacterial protection.
ILIA SHEER VIVID TINTED MOISTURIZER
No one wants to smear on gobs of makeup right after sweating their heart out. This sheer tinted moisturizer by Ilia does way more than double duty, acting as a moisturizer and just enough coverage to even out your skin tone. Packed with skin-soothing aloe vera, white tea, and rosemary extract, this little bottle keeps working long after you leave the locker room.
LESPORTSAC 3 PIECE TRAVEL SET
Organization is a key component of any workout routine. Sassy and super functional, this threesome by LeSportsac helps you organize all your makeup, skincare, and essentials (i.e. wallet, keys, phone) so you don’t have to worry about anything once you step into the gym – except what goal you’re gonna crush this time around.
