These are things your gym bag needs!
Makeup remover wipes:
If you've come to work out right from work or college, chances are you will have makeup on. Working out with a full face of makeup is a big no-no! Makeup remover wipes are super handy to get your face clean before you sweat it out. We love these and these from Essence!
Needless to say this is super important! Both for you and for your gym partners too! Try a fresh smelling deodorant like the Green Tea Deodorant from Yves Rocher.
If you are someone with sweaty feet carry this in your gym bag and spray on while changing from work shoes to gym shoes and then back into flip flops; this will not only keep your feet from smelling bad but also save you from fungus that can be caused by closed shoes and sweat, especially in humid monsoon weather. Look at these options from Inatur and Yves Rocher, both available on msmbox.com
This is great if you have to head out somewhere straight from the gym & don’t have time to wash and then blow dry your hair. A spritz of dry shampoo at the roots of your hair helps to eliminate grease and control odour. (Do remember to shampoo later once you get home however. Dry shampoo is a great short term stand-in but does NOT replace regular shampoo)
No matter how much you trust your gym facilities and their cleanliness, it doesn't hurt to be cautious especially since you will be touching weights and other equipment that is shared with other gym members.
Now that you're done with your workout and need to be somewhere looking more than a little presentable, here is what we suggest you should carry with you. A face wash, rose water toner and a moisturiser is perfect to get rid of sweat and to make your face clean and fresh.
Note: no makeup included in this little kit because after a good sweat session it's best to let your skin breathe. Chances are you wont need any makeup because of that healthy post workout glow, right?
