The Post Workout Beauty Essentials to Keep in Your Gym Bag

We all love to feel good while we work out and sometimes that means a few beauty products to make us slightly less sweaty and hot post workout. Feeling good inside and out is such a great way to leave the gym and to start or end your day, so we have compiled a list of some of the best beauty essentials to keep in your gym bag.

Muscle Relaxing Shower Gel

If you enjoy a shower in your gym or even if you’re at home, a muscle relaxing shower gel is always a good idea. This will relax you post-workout and help to prevent sore muscles which sounds like a positive to us!

There are so many of these on the market at the moment in a range of scents, so do a bit of digging and find one that you like.

Dry Shampoo

No time to wash your hair at the gym or maybe you want to wash your hair at home later? Apply a generous amount to your hair (focusing on your roots) to soak up some of that excess oil and sweat as well as leaving your hair feeling fresh and smelling amazing!

You’ll never have to leave the gym with sweaty hair again.

Facial Spray

Facial sprays are the perfect way to refresh your skin and also help to cool you down. Getting a spray which will benefit your skin is a must when you’re choosing your spray of choice.

Mario Badescu is a fond favourite of so many people, and most of us have probably heard of this brand. These sprays are infused with herbal and botanical extracts which will help soothe and re-energise your skin.


Cleanser is so important to keep in your gym bag, whether you have been sweating or want to remove some excess makeup. Removing all of the excess dirt and sweat after your workout, will keep your skin clear and prevent unnecessary breakouts.


It’s important to put that moisture back into your skin which you may have lost through sweat. Make sure that you do this after cleansing your skin to prevent moving the dirt around your face.

Another thing to remember is to wash your hands before you touch your face – there is a lot of bacteria and dirt on the gym equipment so touching your face can transfer all of this dirt onto your face.


This may not seem like a beauty essential. However, this may be the most important part of your post-gym beauty regime. You lose so much water from your body when you’re working out, so it’s crucial to restore this.

If your body is lacking water, your skin will look dry and dull which is the opposite of that post-gym glow which you really want.
