My 2018 resolutions are still going strong and I hope yours are, too! I’ve still been going daily and I’m more active at the gym now than ever before, and with that comes more complications. I use a lot more machines, which means I’m more susceptible to germs, which means I wash my hands a lot more and use sanitizer like crazy, and I basically do whatever I can to stay clean. This new habit on top of it being winter has caused my skin to dry even more, so I’ve revamped basically everything that I take with me to the gym. Take a peek at the beauty items I like to tote along with me!
1. Dry Shampoo
This is an absolute must for me especially since I don’t wash my hair everyday. My locks are still in very brittle condition so I avoid drying my hair out even more with daily, regular shampoo. I spray on dry shampoo on my hair whenever the need arises, and it’s either before the gym, after, or even both! The one I use absorbs sweat and leaves a fresh, clean scent.
2. Cream Face Wash
I’m unfortunately a habitual face toucher, so sometimes I do it without even realizing it, which is unfortunate when you’re a gym rat. I carry face wash with me so I can make sure my face has a chance to get clean while I try to get rid of my face-touching habit.
3. Olay Total Effects Whip Face Moisturizer
This has been my go-to moisturizer, and it’s especially perfect for my gym beauty bag. It’s formulated differently, which means it works and feels differently! It’s so lightweight which is perfect for the gym, and it leaves a smooth, matte finish and I looove that even more because of my oily/combination skin.
I found my Olay Whips Face Moisturizer at the Southlake Kroger store, but you can find yours at your local Kroger or Kroger banner store! They also carry the Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer, and it’s available with and without SPF in Regenerist, Total Effects and Luminous. Each product has its own youth-restoring benefits, whether you’re looking for smoothness and firmness, tone perfection or overall nourishment. You’ll be able to find one that fits your skincare needs!
4. Loose Powder
There are some days where I just had such a good workout that my face still looks shiny even after washing my face and moisturizing, so I take it a step further and layer some loose, translucent powder over it just to get rid of the shine. I mostly only do this when I need to run an errand right after the gym.
5. Highlighting Drops
Let’s not confuse shine with GLOW. I have some highlighting drops with me so I can add a touch of natural glow on top of what the Olay Whip Face Moisturizer provides!
6. Hair Ties
Because they somehow seem to spontaneously combust and disappear before your very eyes (insert obvious sarcasm), you can never have too many hair ties. You will ALWAYS need one!
I hope you guys found a peek into my gym beauty bag a bit useful! Like I mentioned, I found my Olay Total Effects Whip Face Moisturizer from my local Kroger, and you can find it in the facial skin care aisle!
