1#/ Face mist An essential any time of the day in summer, but especially when you’re working out. Look for one with zingy citrus notes, such as Kora Organics Energising Citrus Mist, for an uplifting effect. Shop Face mists.
2#/ Face wipes You’ll need these once before you work out (to remove any make-up) and again post-workout to cleanse the skin of sweat. We like Yes To Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes, but you can shop face wipes here.
3#/ Headband A soft, stretchy headband will keep hair out of your face without digging into your skull or leaving a dent in your hairline. We like Lady Jayne's Lycra Headband Shop headbands.
4#/ Deodorant Look for one marked antiperspirant, such as Clarins Gentle Care Roll-On Deodorant, to help reduce wetness. Shop deodorants here.
5#/ Hair Ties A ponytail or bun is a must – and hair ties are easy to forget. Shop hair ties here.
1#/ Dry shampoo This one is a no-brainer. Try Batiste Dry Shampoo Original and spritz through sweat-soaked roots, wait a little, and massage through for an instant refresh. Shop dry shampoo here.
2#/ Cushion compact These were made for your gym bag – they offer great coverage with a dewy finish, and the portable case and inbuilt mirror (found on compacts such as YSL Beaute Le Cushion Foundation) means no messy fingers. Shop cushion compacts here.
3#/ Colour Correcting Primer Green sits opposite red on the colour wheel, which means they cancel each other out. Translation: you can quickly camouflage a post-workout flush with a green-tinted primer (plus a primer will help your make-up stay put all day long). We love Dermalogica Redness Relief, but you can shop a range of products here.
4#/ Brow pencil Groomed brows are key to looking polished when you’re on the go, and pencils, like Dior Sourcils Poudre Powder Eyebrow Pencil, are practically goof-proof. Shop brow pencils here.
5#/ Eyeshadow crayon A crayon eyeshadow in a neutral brown, such as Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes in Fuller Fudge (below), means one swipe, and you’re good to go. Shop eyeshadow sticks here.
6#/ Mascara Leave the drama for evening – a natural mascara, such as Maybelline New York Full n Soft Mascara in Very Black, gives subtle definition that’s perfect post-workout. Shop mascaras here.
7#/ Lip & cheek tint If you need a little more on your face, add a sheer wash of colour to lips and cheeks by tapping a subtle tint, such as Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge, on with your fingers. Only have coloured lip balm? A slick of this will work wonders on cheeks too. Shop lip and cheek tints here.
8#/ Fragrance A fresh, citrusy fragrance will prolong your post-workout high. Try Tom Ford Neroli Portofino or shop a range here.
