Seven gym beauty essentials

Sure, deodorant is a must. But what other beauty essentials should you add to your gym bag to keep you looking great? We’ve rounded up seven of the best below. As a side-note how cute is this neon crop top and white backpack combo by Adidas by Stella McCartney? Not to mention our must-have Nike+ sports watch!

Hand sanitiser

After touching all that sweaty gym equipment a little squirt of sanitiser might just be in order! Divine by Therese Kerr Sanitising Hand Gel is scented with lemon myrtle, orange and lavender. It’s also certified organic and non-drying thanks to the addition of nourishing Rooibos tea and Aloe Vera.

Mini shampoo and conditioner

The perfect size to fit into your gym bag, Josh Rosebrook Deep Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner are both filled with luxe natural ingredients like African black soap and Evening Primrose oil.

Tinted lip balm

Wearing make-up to the gym often can’t be avoided during lunch time workouts. But, if you’ve got an early morning sweat sesh planned, it’s best to leave your skin naked so it can breathe. However, if stepping out of the house totally bare-faced feels too much try a tinted lip balm. HAUT Bio-Cocoa Balm in Love has a matt finish while still being hydrating. So it will leave your lips with a subtle healthy flush, not a shiny, glossy look. As an awesome bonus, all HAUT products are vegan and totally natural.

Dry Shampoo

Whether you’ve just had blow dry, or just don’t have time to wash your hair post workout, a great dry shampoo is a must. Toni & Guy Cleanse Dry Shampoo is a fave in the Sporteluxe office.

Lightweight moisturiser

Every gym bag needs moisturiser. Go-To Very Useful Face Cream is full of antioxidants and manages to nail the tricky balance between being lightweight yet super-hydrating. Not surprising since it’s from the new natural range by beauty guru Zoë Foster Blake.

Face wipes

Nothing beats face wipes for a quick refresh. Yes To Cucumbers On-The-Go Facial Wipes come in a convenient 10 pack and are soothing thanks to the addition of Green Tea and Aloe Vera.
