6 Essential Items for your Gym Bag


Whether it is taking care of your skin, eating right, or staying active, we at Clarisonic are all about living a healthy lifestyle. As part of a great daily routine, we should all try to include some type of physical activity. The majority of us love to stay active outdoors but busy schedules and the weather can get in the way. Heading to the gym may be the most convenient way to get an amazing workout into that jam packed schedule of yours.

Here are 6 essential items we believe every gym bag should have:

1. Music Player

The tread mill and elliptical can be very monotonous, so listening to music can be a great motivator. Creating a playlist with your favorite upbeat songs will surely help get you through your workout in no time.

2. Flip Flops

A great line of attack in good hygiene is to bring your own flip flops to the gym. If you are going to hop into the shower, this can be a simple and easy way to cut your chances of contracting a gross fungal infection on your feet.

3. Deodorant

We all want to smell fresh and clean after a great workout, especially if we have somewhere important to go. Try a clear, natural deodorant to stay dry and battle unwanted odor and minimizes streaks on your clothes.

4. Towel

Another must have is a personal towel, to wipe yourself down after a shower or after a hard workout.

5. Water Bottle

Always bring a water bottle. Staying hydrated before, during, and after a fantastic workout is important. Opt for a stainless steel BPA-free water bottle. Not only does a portable water bottle cut down on plastics entering our landfills, studies have shown that BPA may have harmful effects on the body.

6. Mini Product Bottles

Keep you gym bag stocked with mini bottles filled with your regular skincare products. Just because you may have to shower at the gym, doesn’t mean you should neglect your skincare.
