Beauty Gym Bag Essentials

Beauty Gym Bag Essentials

When it comes to the summer months and we start hitting the gyms in preparation for the beach, we need to make sure we have our beauty gym bag essentials on hand. Exercise is great for our skin, bodies and health, but as heat and sweat can wreak havoc and cause breakouts and oily locks, we need to make sure we have the right products on hand to always look our best.

Packing a set of skin, body and hair gym bag essentials therefore is key to maintaining that post exercise glow without any of the sweaty after-effects.

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
