Celebrity Fitness Beauty Special: Pack Your Gym Bag With These Grooming Essentials!

Ready to look like Ashley Greene post-workout? Be sure to pack your gym bag with these celeb-approved essentials!

OK, BFFs, let’s be honest here: we all know that fitness is key to looking and feeling your best. However, one of the main drags of schlepping it to the gym is having to cart all your beauty essentials with you. Rather than packing your entire vanity and throwing out your shoulder (which would make strength training rather difficult,) how about taking these fabulous compact beauty favorites with you:

If you’re working out on a schedule like Kelly Ripa, you’re going to need hair products that will make getting ready super quick. Kelly’s mane guy, celebrity hairstylist Oscar Blandi, has a genius Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray that’s a quick and easy way to clean your hair without having to full-on shampoo post-workout. Nab the travel size for your workout bag.

Ashley Greene swears by celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson, who has created possibly the most genius hair product ever: the Ted Gibson Hair Sheet. Each individual towelette is soaked through with serum that conditions hair and adds a generous amount of styling product so that you can literally go straight to the dryer and style it as usual.

To get ready on the go, nab yourself a Bliss Sink Side Six Pack, which contains travel-sized portions of every essential you need from the legendary spa (Rachel Zoe is a fan): Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash, Bliss Lemon+Sage Soapy Sap, Bliss Lemon+Sage Body Butter, Bliss Lemon+Sage Supershine Shampoo, Bliss Lemon+Sage Conditioning Rinse, and a small Bliss Lemon+Sage Soap Slab.

Post-workout makeup is really easier than you think. I’m a fan of products that multitask, like the NARS The Multiple (which works for eyes, cheeks and lips.) Swipe this on over a great moisturizer like Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion To Go (the travel size) and a great mascara like Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara and you’re done. There’s no need to overdo it. Your post-workout glow is the best look of all!

Other essentials include deodorant, Q-tips, a razor and any feminine hygiene products (if you need them) and you’re good to go. Be sure to drink tons of water and you’re ready to look like a star, pre and post-workout!
