BY Lauren Salerno · October 13, 2015

Working out is critical for achieving not only body health, but skin health as well—and we take that very seriously. To help guide you on your healthy journey, we’ve put together our 7 beauty essentials for the gym. Watch the video below or keep scrolling to see what these products are.



1. Smudge-Proof Mascara

Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara

Why We Love It: This mascara can handle even the most intense workout. It’s top-rated because it doesn’t smudge or clump and the dramatic volume and black, glossy colors stays on all day. Plus, it’s easily removable with just a cleanser—no makeup remover required.

2. Tug-Free Hair Tie

Dye Tyes Satin Collection Prima Ballerina Hair Ties

Why We Love It: A stretchy and pretty hair tie that seamlessly holds up our ponytail without tugging, crimping or creasing our strands. It comes in pretty colors for every style too!

3. Rinse-free Cleanser

La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution

Why We Love It: Cleanse, tone and remove dirt and makeup in one step, without water. This top-rated solution is made with poloxamer, a gentle cleansing agent commonly found in contact lens solutions, so it’s gentle enough for all skin types, especially sensitive and redness-prone skin.

4. Dry Shampoo

One Love Organics Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo Powder

Why We Love It: Post-workout bliss for your hair. This dry shampoo is a perfect way to not only refresh your hair and soak up unsightly oil after a gym session, but it volumizes as well. Just sprinkle the certified-organic powder onto your roots, let it sit for two minutes and then brush through. It comes in two sizes that easily fit into your bag.

5. Detangling Brush

Harry Josh Pro Tools Detangling Brush

Why We Love It: This brush allows you to detangle your tresses whether they’re wet or dry without any tugging, snagging or damaging breakage. So if you wash your hair or use dry shampoo or just want to detangle your hair after working out, this one brush is all you need!

6. Protein Powder

David Kirsch Wellness Protein Plus Vanilla

Why We Love It: It’s a protein powder that’s good for your body and your beauty regimen! Created by A-list trainer David Kirsch, it’s packed with vitamins, protein and fatty acids to boost metabolism and satiate hunger while biotin improves the strength of your hair, skin and nails.

7. BPA-Free Water Bottle

bkr Glass Bottle and Silicone Sleeve

Why We Love It: This eco-friendly glass water bottle is an excellent alternative to BPA-ridden plastic water bottles. The silicone sleeve prevents slipping and comes in a variety of fun colors. And the twist-off cap has a loop, so it’s easy to carry from one workout machine to the next. Good for you and the environment!
