In My Gym Bag: 12 Beauty Essentials For The Workout Warrior

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…

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.
