The top 5 products you should always have in your gym bag (EN)

I’ve been known for neglecting the gym for a great deal of my adult life. Now that I am back, however, I try to keep a healthy relationship with it and I might even say, gym time is one of my favorite times in the day.

The perks of being a regular at the changing rooms though, are not to be taken lightly so here are my top 5 picks for beauty products you should always have in your gym bag.

  1. Demaquillage wipes – sweat, hair products and make up are a total disaster for your skin! demaquillage wipes
  2. Sanitizing wipes – not only for the treadmill or weights but also for the locker in the changing rooms – and don’t forget the bench where you usually sit to change – some people put their feet on or sit on it with bums that have also sat on the shared gym mats. Yikes, if you think about it.
  3. Deodorant with cotton smell – nothing like a fresh cotton smell to make you feel perfectly clean even if you showered on the go! in your gym bag
  4. Your own yoga mat – or mat for the various classes and abs excercises. It can be a nightmare to carry but who wants to sit where everyone else has been sitting – you take all the bacteria with you back at your car seat, home chairs etc.
  5. Natural tear monodoses – if you are a contact lens person you know you can’t go without one of those cuties in your handbag so don’t forget to pack a couple for your gym bag, too. Sweat mixed with hair products or make up makes your eyes sting.
  • And a bonus +1: Dry shampoo ! I was very skeptical about it, I admit, but now I can’t live without it. It so happens that my bestfriend chooses to text me for drinks when I’m at the gym and even though I don’t have time to wash my hair, I can spray my divinely smelling Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo (got  mine at Fairy Nails Rhodes) and I’m ready to go! dry shampoo quote
  • OK bonus 2: If you are like me and want a quick make up alternative for when you want to go out immediately after gym, a bb or cc cream is the best!

My favorite was Idealia BB cream by Vichy and lately Rosaliac CC Cream from La-Roche Posay. Great color, super fresh smell and a creamy, smooth texture, perfect alternative to make up. cc cream

What about you? What is never missing from your gym bag? I’d love to know!!!!

Also, if you have suggestions for a nice gym bag, I really have to buy a new one!
