8 Gym Bag Beauty Essentials

When I walk out of the gym, I feel sexy and very confident, like I just accomplished something amazing. My skin is glowing, my muscles are perfectly showcased with every step, and my fresh scent is blowing in the wind (Ha! Okay, this is only how I feel). Picking out great beauty products to use after a nasty, sweaty workout is just as important as the workout itself. Click through the slideshow to see which beauty essentials are a must in your gym bag!

  • Travel size hair dryer 2 of 9

    It's no fun to have to wait for a dryer or leave with your hair wet. Invest in a lightweight blow dryer and look as fabulous as you feel when you leave the gym.

    Baby Bliss Pro Nano Titanium Bambino, $39.99

  • Bungee cord hair ties 3 of 9

    Now I have a lot of hair, and these bad boys are a favorite for me. They keep your hair in place without loosening as you work out. Bungee cord hair ties are also great because they do not rip out your hair and are very easy to remove.

  • Deodorant 4 of 9

    Working out can make you feel and look great. However, if you sweat heavily, you can begin to smell, and well, that sucks. Packing deodorant seems obvious, but this deodorant was formulated to work harder when you do. It keeps you dry and goes on invisible.

    Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant, $7.49

  • Body wash 5 of 9
    300

    There's no time like shower time after a workout. You're sweaty and so is everyone around you, making you want to jump in the shower (if you're like me). I use a moisturizing soap to get clean, as my pores are nice and open, ready to absorb moisture.

    Olay Body Body Butter Ribbons, $5.99

  • Face wipes 6 of 9

    While working out, you may begin to sweat heavily around the face. Letting that sweat dry on your face or wiping it away with your hands can lead to breakouts. Face wipes can be extremely helpful in keeping your face acne-free.

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Wipes, $6.99

  • Acne face wash 7 of 9

    Using a acne face cleanser after a workout will help reduce acne from forming on your face. Working out and sweating will open up your pores, so this is the perfect time to work on clearing breakouts.

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash, $5.49

  • Tinted moisturizer 8 of 9

    Tinted moisturizer is a must! It works as a 2-1, being a moisturizer and foundation. When choosing a tinted moisturizer, opt for an oil-free formula.

    Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, $42

  • Dry shampoo 9 of 9
    081610-Dry-Shampoo-400

    Can't wash your hair after a workout? No problem! Use a dry shampoo spray. This will absorb any excess amount of oil in your hair and add the needed volume you may have lost while working out.

    Oscar Blandi Volumizing Dry Shampoo, $25
