What’s In My Gym Bag

What’s In My Gym Bag

Phew! What a busy couple of weeks. We’re fresh into the New Year with plans to start anew and accomplish our goals. We’ve rolled out our vision boards, pulled out our planners, and we’re going extra hard on all our affirmations. That’s why we needed to carve out this quick break to discuss some of our pocket-sized essentials while we’re on the go. 


Things can get a little grimy while you’re at the gym. Packing a gentle cleanser can help you wash away all the toxins you’ve just sweat out and refresh your mind. Cleansing should be your first priority after working out.  It ensures that all that dirt, sweat, and makeup doesn’t sit on your skin or clog your pores. Our goal is to break a sweat not breakout in whiteheads. 

We recommend the AROMATICA Rose Absolute Cream Cleanser

Face Mist

If you’re on the run, grabbing a face mist can help save you minutes. It’s an easy way to supply vitamins and minerals back into your skin. Whether it’s a few spritzes of your favorite essence, toner or serum,  a travel-sized mist can easily settle your skin and soothe any irritations. Quickly freshen up and glow in no time.

Moisturizer/ Sunscreen

…because it’s super important to balance your skin and restore lost moisture. It’s especially essential in dry winter weather. No matter your skin type, the winter chill can dry out your skin and lead to flaky, sensitive patches and even worse – an overall dull complexion. It’s a win win if you double up your moisturizer as a sunscreen so that your skin stays protected.  

Dry Shampoo

Let’s face it, our hair can be in need of a little lift after a few reps and sets. Even more, working up a sweat can leave your scalp feeling heavy and kinda greasy.  A dry shampoo or scalp spray easily relieves and soothes our scalp all while keeping hair odor at bay. Whether it’s a spray or light treatment, a little can go a long way in reviving our tresses. Help your hair feel and look as good as you do on the inside. 

Suggestion: AROMATICA Tea Tree Purifying Tonic

The Long and Short

Squeezing in those few self-care moments at the gym is essential to managing your skin-health and staying on track. It’s important to find those reliable items that work for you and don’t compromise your pre- and post-workout needs. Getting rid of bacteria and dirt, as well as ensuring that your skin’s moisture barrier is intact, is just as much a part of your workout routine as working out itself. Find your skincare rhythm, focus, and get ready to flow into a healthier you.
