After completing a workout session in the gym, you must be dripping in sweat. Of course, you will not be comfortable with your body especially when you have somewhere to be afterwards (like a meeting with a client or brunch plans with friends). A shower may or may not be an option, so a quick freshening up is needed. This is why, apart from your basic gym essentials and change of clothes, it makes sense to pack several beauty products into your gym bag as well. With these beauty products, you can still look hot (and fresh) after a workout even without having to shower or going through a long skincare process.
Beauty Product #1 - Micellar Water
Micellar water is a gentle cleanser that removes impurities from your complexion. Just in one simple step, your sweaty face will be oil, dirt and grime free. The best thing is, you don’t even have to rinse it off. Very handy, right?
Beauty Product #2 - Cleaning wipes
Like micellar water, cleaning wipes will not only let you remove makeup before a workout but can also double as a convenient way to cleanse your face post-sweat session. If you are in a hurry, just cleanse your face and skin using the wipes to make you feel fresh again.
Beauty Product #3 - Moisturizer
Don’t forget to pick some lightweight and oil-free moisturizer as one of your go-to skincare products. Apply your favourite moisturizer to hydrate and keep your skin moisturized.
Beauty Product #4 - Face Mist
A grueling workout session can irritate your complexion and make it dry. Spray some facial mist to reduce redness, blemishes and soothe the skin. You can also lightly spritz facial mist once you are done with your make up, leaving your skin feeling hydrated whilst keeping your makeup from being cakey.
Beauty Product #5 - Dry shampoo
When you have no time to shower or properly shampoo your hair, opt for dry shampoo. It will instantly soak excess oil and grease, at the same time adds volume and instantly lifts your hair. Enjoy clean healthy-looking hair in a matter of seconds.
Beauty Product #6 - Deodorant
Use deodorant to combat odor and absorb wetness. You want to stay fresh and confident all day long.
Beauty Product #7 - Makeup essentials
You might not have ample time before heading to do your next errand or appointment. Just make sure your makeup essentials are with you. Keep it simple, suitable be it for work or leisure. Add some hint of colours to go with your natural look.
Beauty Product #8 - Perfume
Last but not least, spray your favourite fragrance to complete your appearance for the day and you are ready to go.
