5 gym wash bag beauty essentials you always need

Whether you've been hitting it hard on the cross-trainer, stretching it out on the yoga mat or toning up with some weight work, you will no doubt finish your session looking a little rosy-cheeked, or if you're anything like us, a bit of a sweaty mess! Whilst we love working out, we’re not so keen on the post sticky feeling that comes after a good workout, and even less keen on stepping out onto the streets for all to see!

Leave the gym as fresh as the moment you walked in with our top five beauty essentials you always need in your gym wash bag

5 Post Work-Out Beauty Products for Your Gym Wash Bag

1. Face Mist

A refreshing spritz of a cool facial spray will work wonders on flushed skin. Pick a mist that doesn’t just freshen and hydrate, but is packed full of potent actives and other ingredients that benefit the skin. We like to pack Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist in our toiletry bag. This lightweight mist combines hydrating hyaluronic acid and hibiscus flower AHAs to leave a dewy healthy glow.

2. No Rinse Body Cleanser

If you’re heading straight back to the office or going out for drinks after your workout and don’t have time, or facilities, to shower, a no-rinse body cleanser is the next best thing.  A roll of deodorant is perfect for those days when you’ve had a lighter workout, but for a more thorough cleanse make sure your gym wash bag is equipped with Yuni Beauty Flash Bath No-Rinse Body Cleanser. The light cleansing foam instantly lifts sweat, smell and dirt with a purifying blend of neem extract and cooling aloe vera to leave you feeling shower-fresh with no sticky or greasy residue. Pop one in our 'Kate' 3 in 1 Hanging Wash Bag for the perfect quick fix!

3. Deodorant

There’s no contest with this gym wash bag essential! No matter what type of training you’ve got planned, an effective antiperspirant in your toiletry wash bag pre and post-workout is a must!

4. Dry Shampoo

Sweaty hair is an inevitable part of a gym session and one that is tricky to disguise. This is where dry shampoo comes to the rescue. The beauty essential of fitness-loving ladies everywhere a spritz of a good quality dry shampoo will soak up the oil whilst leaving a fresh scent.  Choose one that’s oil-absorbent, but light and non-powdery for a brilliant bail-out for not-so-fresh locks.

5. Tinted Moisturiser

If you’re planning on going straight from pump-class to pub you’re going to need something to disguise that tell-tale post-workout afterglow.  A tinted moisturiser is spot-on for hydrating whilst also reducing redness and smoothing out blotches without being too heavy on the skin. Pick a shade to match your skin tone (pre-workout, of course) and keep it in your gym make up bag, such as our 'Lauren' Folding Makeup Bag
