There is nothing more frustrating than finishing a workout (good for you!) then discovering your basic, post exercise needs cannot be met.  Stash these essentials in your gym bag to ensure a stylish* exit from Fitness Planet/World of Workout/insert your gym's cheesy name here.  Again, these are the essentials - if your gym has showers there's a lot more crap you'll need to pack...

* Be they actual face wipes or the baby variety, wipes are essential to removing sweat from face, neck, chest and underarms.  They will help to cool and calm the skin as well as freshen you up a bit before interacting with people who have not just sweat their asses off  to a mambo beat.

* Body mist - a little spritz of a floral or fruity scent is a great follow up, post wipe.  Choose something on the lighter side for a more fresh feeling.

* Your face might be a tad flushed so rather than slathering on cosmetics blot your skin to remove excess oil.

* To hydrate your lips as well as add a bit of pretty polish, without bothering with makeup, slick on a lip balm with a bit of color.

* Your tresses are more than likely not looking their best at this stage so stash a few hair solutions in your bag such as dry shampoo spray, a few elastics and a headband.

* Let's not forget about the actual bag itself...they tend to get a little funky so toss in a diaper pail deodorizer (see, another benefit to having kids) in the bag to keep it as fresh as possible.  If you store your shoes in the bag invest in a pair of sneaker balls to combat additional odors.
