7 Gym Bag Necessities

As you may know, leading a healthy and active lifestyle is an important aspect of my life. You shouldn’t have to choose between—as I call it— Living Wisely to ensure that you're feeling your absolute best.  In a perfect world, maintaining your social life, work life, workouts, etc. should all culminate into one beautiful blend. My gym bag essentials are a vital tool in making sure I can smoothly transition from a great workout to a busy business day or lunch date with friends. Here are my favorite products to store in my gym bag for a quick, clean refresher.

1. Yes to Cucumbers travel facial wipes

Facial wipes are crucial before and after every workout. Lifting excess dirt and oils off your skin pre-workout allows your skin to breath once you begin. Similarly, cleansing your face post-workout is equally important. Wiping away the sweat that can clog your pores prevents irritation and/or breakouts. Plus, these specific wipes are hypoallergenic, making them safe for anyone to use. They are infused with cucumber and aloe vera, which are both gentle on the skin and smell amazing!

2. Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion

Hair Potion will be your post-workout BFF! It starts out as a lightweight, white powder that transforms into a smooth lotion once worked into the hair. This product creates texture and volume with natural bulking agents, such as kaolin clay and acacia gum. It coats with a matte finish perfect for a "second-day hair" look!

Air Control is an innovative, flexible hair spray. It offers strong hold while still allowing hair to move freely and beautifully. It's lightweight, workable hold is derived from natural pine resin, which means it also has a friendly net-zero impact on the environment!
