You can't dress up when you go to the gym, but you can still feel fabulous while you're there. Even once your workout is over and you're sweating through your clothes, you can make yourself up to be beautiful. All it takes is the right equipment. Here are some gym bag essentials that'll make you feel fabulous while getting fit:
1. Facial Wipes
After a good workout, you're going to be sweaty. That's why you need to bring along some face wipes so that you can clean off your cheeks and forehead. If you let the sweat stay on there, it could cause you to develop unwanted acne. You can even run the facial wipes along your arms and stomach if you're feeling extra sweaty and unattractive. Of course, for good measure, you should also bring along hand sanitizer, because you don't want any of those gym germs to stick to you all day. It's better to be safe than sick.
2. Dry Shampoo
If you don't have time to take a full shower after your workout, you should bring along some dry shampoo. It only takes a few minutes to apply, and you'll feel better about how your hair looks. You've probably never used the product before, but you can find it pretty much anywhere, so don't forget to add it to your list.
3. Lip Balm
Running on a treadmill for two hours can dry out your face. That's why you should always bring along some lip balm. No matter where you are, you always want your lips to look soft and kissable. I mean, your Prince Charming could be the dude lifting weights next to you.
4. Hair Ties
No matter how long you spend in front of a mirror, sometimes your hair just won't cooperate after a workout. That's why you should pack a hair tie in your gym bag. It's impossible to look bad when your locks are tied back in a tight ponytail.
5. Floral Deodorant
Spritzing on perfume after a workout can be overkill. The mixture of that scent with your body odor can be pretty gross, which is why you should stick to applying deodorant. Just make sure that you buy a nice, floral scent so that it's the next best thing to perfume.
6. Travel Toothbrush
Sometimes, a piece of gum just won't do the trick. If you're worried about the smell of your breath, bring along a travel sized toothbrush that you can use and dispose. That way, you can go through the rest of your day without being self-conscious about what you smell like when you open your beautiful lips.
7. Miniature Mascara
You don't need to pile on the make-up after your workout. After all, if you're still sweating, it'll wipe all your hard work right away. That's why you should stick to the basics. All you really need is some mascara and lip gloss. They're both easy to reapply, so you won't waste the valuable time that you could be spending doing something productive.
No one looks like a superstar at the gym, but that doesn't mean that you can't feel fabulous. As long as you bring these items along with you, it won't take long for you to transform from drab to fab. What else do you pack in your gym bag?
