Summer calls for different gym bag essentials than the other months of the year. If your gym doesn’t have air conditioning, for example (and even if it does, you may find yourself out in the heat sweating more afterwards), you are going to need more hydration than you would during the cooler months. With the extra heat that comes during the summer, it is a good reminder to pack certain gym bag essentials that will keep you cool and help you deal with the implications of heat. Some of these items may seem like common sense to pack, but you would be surprised how many people just go to the gym unprepared. I used to do that, and my workouts would always suffer (or I would always suffer afterwards if I didn’t pack any water) – so hopefully these summer gym bag essentials will help you get the most out of your workout!
1. GUD from Burt’s Bees Orange Petalooza Facial Cleansing Wipes
These post-workout cleansing wipes are one of the most important gym bag essentials you can get. They smell amazing, and are made from natural ingredients, but best of all they only cost $3! These wipes are great for removing make-up and giving your face a refreshing feeling. I also think they are helpful for cooling off slightly after a good workout. They are very portable, and great for when you can’t make it home for a shower and want to get some of the sweat off of your face right away. This is actually an important thing to do if you want to prevent summer acne!
