2. For Pre and Post Workout: Pretty Athletic 

What: Workout Glow: Hyaluronic Vitamin Tonic (£17.50)

The Rundown: For beautiful skin no matter how hard you sweat, try cleansing your skin pre and post exercise with Pretty Athletic’s Workout Glow. Pretty Athletic was designed for active women in mind; their products are 95% natural, vegan, and packed with scientifically-proven actives. The beautiful rosewater tonic gently cleanses, nourishes and hydrates. Just spritz, wipe and go.

We Say: Exercise and sweat is a killer combo for our skin. After a couple of uses, we found our skin more radiant and hydrated. Use the tonic before applying make up after an exercise session (putting make up onto an already sweaty face is never a good look).

3. For a Facial Oil: INGLOT 

What: INGLOT Sunrise Drop Facial Oil (£21)

The Rundown: Having pH level under control, Sunrise Drop Face Oil also improves skin elasticity, flexibility and its tension. Focusing on true hydration, this carefully chosen combination of oils is the guard of your skin, protecting it from the excessive moisture loss after exercise.

We Say: Facial oils have a tendency to be quite heavy, leaving skin oily rather that hydrated. However, the INGLOT oil easily absorbs, leaving a lovely glow rather than chip pan shine.

This 100% natural liquid soap restores moisture lost by sweat, cleansing the body, hair and face.

We Say: A lifesaver. A gym lifesaver. Our gym bag is a graveyard to empty of bottles lotions and potions – it’s handy to have just one bottle for the full works. And the smell is heavenly.

5. For Dry Shampoo: Maria Nila

What: Maria Nila Travel Size Style and Finish Dry Shampoo (£8.99)

The Rundown: Maria Nila is not the usual hair care company; all of their 100% vegan and cruelty free-certified products have been developed with love for nature, animals and your hair. With one easy spray, the dry shampoo  freshens up greasy hair, and can add volume to fine hair too. If you’re stretched for time after your gym class – just spray, style and head to the tube.

We Say: Not your average dry shampoo, the Maria Nila leaves no pesky white specs and, they’re not lying about added volume. We had bouncy hair for hours.

6. For Deodrant: Aesop 

What: Déodorant Roll-On (£23)

The Rundown: An alcohol-free, roll-on alternative to deodorant spray. Aesop’s deodorant contains zinc ricinoleate, wasabi extract, and a complementary blend of essential oils to reduce and mask unpleasant odour.

We Say: All of Aesop’s products are beautiful, yet practical. We love the natural ingredients, and the smell transports you out of the muggy gym changing rooms and into the roaming English countryside. Pricey, but worth it.

7. For Fresh Breath: Swish To Go 

What: Swish To Go (£3 for six sachets)

The Rundown: The unique waterless, powder-based system turns to liquid on the tongue, where it can be swished for 10 seconds then swallowed to deliver cleaner teeth, healthier gums and long-lasting fresh breath wherever you are.

We Say: You probably don’t need to brush your teeth after a spin class, but we never say no to minty fresh breath. Easy to use, and great for travelling too. And who wants to be lugging round a toothbrush and a tube of toothpaste all day…not us.

Stockists: Boots

8. For Micellar Water: A’kin

What: Cleansing Micellar Water (£12.50

10. For a Cleansing Cloth: Magnitone 

What: Microfibre Cleansing Cloth (£15)

The Rundown: The Magnitone WipeOut cleansing cloths are perfect for gym bunnies who want to get rid of post workout panda eyes in a flash.

The innovative micro fibres swell on contact with warm water and grab onto makeup and impurities found deep within your pores removing them effortlessly without tugging at the skin or having to use a separate cleanser and toner.

We Say: This is not a drill: these cloths actually remove water proof mascara, and you don’t have to scrub your eyes off.
