WHAT’S IN OUR GYM BAG?

Now we’re not saying add a full face of makeup after the gym but there’s nothing wrong with a couple of strokes of mascara, bronzed up cheeks and a harmless red lip.

Gym Wear

This is obviously the most important thing that just has to be packed up in your gym bag, working out in a dress just doesn’t work. But the question is, what’s the best gym wear clothing?
We always turn to Sweaty Betty and Nike when we’re stocking up on our gym wear from workout pants to sports bras.

  • Workout Pants: We turned to Sweaty Betty for some workout leggings/yoga pants not only because the quality of these are beyond compare but they also come in lots of different and unique patterns that we just love. And of course, workout pants are an essential because nothing says “work it” like a tight pair of workout pants.

  • Sports Bra: Because you don’t want to be giving yourself a black eye! When it comes down to sports bras, everybody is different shapes and sizes so make sure you get the perfect one for you. We recommend a leisurely trip to Nike to find yours.

  • Gym Shoes: Again, we just can’t stray away from Nike.

Makeup Bag

Arguably, not the most essential part of the gym bag but after a gym session you’ll feel better than ever so why not add a little makeup afterwards to add to your already present glow!

Now we’re not saying add a full face of makeup after the gym but there’s nothing wrong with a couple of strokes of mascara, bronzed up cheeks and a harmless red lip.

  • Benefit Cosmetics Dew the Hoola: This liquid bronzer will set and blend easily on your face leaving a natural looking sun-kissed glow.

  • Makeup Forever Artist Rouge Matte Lipstick: There’s no denying, a red lip completes any makeup look and adds a little colour to your face, especially during the autumn to winter months. Say hello to our travel size, go-to red lipstick by the Parisian make-up artists!

Toiletries

As well as drinking lots of water throughout your workout at the gym, you skin also needs to keep hydrated before and after to fight off any chances of dry skin. Our go-to skincare products for on the go is Nuxe and these should definitely find a home in your gym bag.

  • Nuxe Hand and Nail Cream: This repairing and non-greasy hand cream relives and repairs dry hands and also nourishes the nails to strengthen and hydrate. This travel size bottle leaves you no excuse to hydrate your hands throughout the day – especially after the gym.

  • Nuxe Moisturising Cream: This moisturising cream for dry skin protects against oxidative stress. Did you know that oxidative stress is the main cause of skin ageing?
