I'm personally not a fan of wearing makeup to the gym - I'm a sweaty, unattractive mess when I workout, and I continuously rub my face so there really isn't any point. But I understand that not everyone likes going to the gym with no makeup on at all, and it's always good to take some beauty essentials with you when you're off to workout. A no brainer and total essential is of course, deodorant. I always carry my Garnier Mineral Ultra Dry Anti-Perspirant with me, it's soft to touch and quick drying. And no white marks! Face wipes are always handy to have with you for a quick freshen up, and if you do wear makeup to the gym then they're fab for quick wipe-aways or touch ups. Of course any brand will do really but my personal fave has to be Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. If you prefer a micellar water to remove your makeup or cleanse, just take some cotton pads with you and you're good to go!

Dry shampoo is a must have in your gym bag, if you don't have time for a real rinse after your workout then the next best thing is sweet smelling hair. As I've mentioned before on here, I always reach for the ever iconic Batiste because it never fails me. I'm currently using their Floral and Flirty Blush fragranced dry shampoo and I adore the scent! Whilst we're on the subject of hair, I always make sure I've got my hair brush with me. Again this is a bit of a no brainer, and something I carry with me all the time - you just never know when you're going to need it (or when your friends are going to borrow it!). Naturally I always reach for my Tangle Teaser, but I've really been loving this wee travel sized guy from New Look recently.

If you do plan on showering at the gym then make sure you've got a good body wash with you. I love using a moisturising body wash after working out just to replenish my skin and add some hydration back in. Aveeno Body Wash has a nourishing formula that helps lock in moisture. I love how soft and smooth this makes my skin feel, I definitely need to make an effort to try more from Aveeno. A BB cream or tinted moisturiser are great additions to your gym bag, especially if you're heading to work, or out to run errands afterwards. My favourite tinted moisturisers are from No.7 and Laura Mercier. It adds that little bit of colour back into your skin, or covers up a whole lot of redness in my case. Or y'know just helps you look a little more alive! Lastly, what I couldn't leave the house without - hair grips and hair ties, hand cream, headphones, lip balm and not forgetting, water!

What are your gym bag beauty essentials?
