Gym Bag Essentials

Our workout routine is what helps us keep fit, looking great and feeling on top of the world but sometimes a particularly intense class can leave you looking a bit haggard. These beauty items are a perfect complement to your spring workout routine.

For Running — try:


Hydrating Toner, $28.00


Breaking a sweat is inevitable when you're running and the sweat can easily clog pores. Use an all-natural face toner to gently clean built-up bacteria and oil. This face toning mist leaves your skin feeling super refreshed. The Hydrating Toner is a lightweight mist that rehydrates and refreshes skin while restoring skin's natural pH balance and neutralizing surface impurities. Sodium PCA improves hydration, while chamomile and cucumber extracts soothe and minimize skin irritation.

For Spinning — try:


M.A.C Wipes, $29.00 or Nordstrom

These wipes are perfect for the on-the-go workout junkie. They're pre-soaked cleansing wipes that will refresh your skin and take off any make-up so you don't look like a hot-mess raccoon after a heavy-sweat workout like spin. They're also strong enough to take off loads of mascara or water-resistant foundation. What's even more impressive is how soft your skin will feel after using them.

For Yoga — try:

Phyto Professional

Phytolaque Soie, $10.95

We all know how hard those baby hairs can be to maintain. Keep your fly-aways tamed with an all-natural hair spray. The Phytolaque Soie hair spray contains a mix of natural resins and silk fibers that nurture and guard hair while styling and setting. The silk fibers are virtually the same as hair's natural keratin, which aids in smoothing down the cuticle and renewing the sheen and vibrancy of lackluster hair. Bonus – If you want to rock a down-do after yoga this is a non-sticky formula and easy to brush out.

For Weight Training — try:

MILK Makeup

All Natural Deodorant, $14.00

Weight training is definitely intense, so a quality deodorant is a must-have.  This deodorant is super gentle on skin and glides on easily. Good news: it's vegan and made with only natural and organic ingredients including Lavender oil that soothes and nourishes skin, and keeps underarms feeling fresh and smelling clean all day.

For Pilates — try:


Amazing Grace Perfumed Firming Body Emulsion, $23

Get double the firming power after your pilates toning session with this body lotion. It's made to tone and tighten your skin and can be applied all over, especially on your core. Apply after your post-workout shower.

For Swimming — try:

SwimSpray Chlorine Removal Spray, $11.99

Regular soap can't always do the trick. This 100% natural spray gently breaks the barrier between your skin and the harsh chemicals in chlorine water. It's designed for both hair and skin to remove chlorine while keeping moisture in.

For Running

The Rykä Dynamic 2 is the perfect cross trainer.  The layered mesh provides breathability, while allowing the Dynamic Fit system to provide desired level of support in the forefoot. $75
