6 Beauty Essentials Every Girl Needs in Her Gym Bag - VITAL+ Pharmacy

Strapped for time after your morning gym session? Here are 6 beauty must-haves guaranteed to take you from workout to work in no time

Find it impossible to achieve that fresh-faced glow after the gym? Think again. We’ve put together an essential edit of must-have products that will save you time in the shower — and on your morning commute — every day. So you’ll never need to cut your workout short again (if that was your excuse for leaving every class early!).

Here are six beauty essentials your gym bag should never be without.

Deodorant

Trying to stick to only light exercises or avoid getting too close to anybody should never be your goal at the gym. Deodorant is your solution.
Make sure you carry a good deodorant that doubles as sweat or odor protection for you.
Choose one that is all natural, paraben, and aluminum-free. This type of deodorant not only prevents body odor but also eliminates bacteria and prevents pit stains.

Dry Shampoo

Washing your hair every day can really take its toll on your tresses — washing it too much can actually dry your hair of its natural oils and moisture. Plus, who has time for a shampoo and blow-dry after a morning workout?! But of course, if you’re working out every day, you’ll want to freshen up, rather than scraping back into a (slightly sweaty) pony.

Our solution? A quick spritz of dry shampoo. We love OGX coconut milk dry shampoo. It’s tropical scented, so any trace of post-workout sweat will be well and truly masked, whilst the softening coconut milk formula works to restore and revive strands, so your locks will be silky soft and ready to roll — without so much as a hair dryer in sight!

Thermal water spray

After a workout, you can be hot and bothered. If your skin tends to turn quite red during exercise, keep it cool with a mist of refreshing thermal spring water. The best part is you can’t overdose on it – it’s especially good for sensitive, irritated or broken skin.

Hair elastic

Somehow, no matter how many elastic bands we buy, we always seem to lose them, don’t we? Keep a handful in your gym bag so you can throw your hair up into a ponytail. There’s nothing worse than working out with hair hitting you in the face.
