Ten beauty products to pack in your gym bag

#1: Deodorant

Afraid of a little smell after a hard training session? Forget your worries with an anti-perspirant deodorant, which will prevent odour and keep perspiration at bay.

#2: Dry shampoo

It may not be as refreshing as a real rinse, but dry shampoo zaps sweat along the scalp and adds subtle volume.

#3: Hair ties

Whether you keep an elastic in your bag or around your wrist, always have one handy for throwing your hair up in a ponytail or a bun.

#4: Towel

Although most gyms provide them, you should always carry your own. You never know how much or what kind of detergent they use to clean them, which is especially important for anyone with allergies.

#5: Face wipes

To prevent breakouts, swipe your face with a face wipes. They can also be used before a workout to remove any make-up before it clogs pores.

#6: Water bottle

Always have a water bottle handy before, during and after your workout. Not only will remaining hydrated make you feel good, getting enough water makes you look beautiful as well!

#7: On-the-go snack

Post-workout, you want protein fast because it helps your muscles recover. Pack a protein or granola bar.

#8: Plasters

Have a few on hand, because nothing messes up your beauty game quite like blisters!

#9: Headband

Keep any flyaways or bangs back with a sport headband.

#10: Hand sanitiser

When your health is at stake, you can’t trust the cleaning staff. Always have hand sanitiser handy after your work the machines.
