The start of a new year also signalling your return to the gym? Us too. Which is why it's time to rethink our beauty regimes. Quick, easy and hassle-free, these are the eight beauty saviours you need to add to your gym kit. They might just make it a little less painful.


1. Ditch foundation



Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20


When we work out, our pores open up to expel sweat. So, to steer clear of any nasty post-workout breakouts, opt for a lighter formula such as an oil-free tinted moisturiser.


Shop Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, £34


2. Cover it up



Nars Cosmetics Soft Matte Complete Concealer


Rather than go for a stifling full base, touch up any blemishes with a matte concealer. This Nars option contains collagen-boosting peptides and hyaluronic acid to help plump and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.


Shop Nars Cosmetics Soft Matte Complete Concealer, £24


3. Just a tint



Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Balm


Suffering from chapped lips and pale winter skin? Add colour and moisture to your lips with a swipe of tinted balm.


Shop Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Balm, £28


4. Go waterproof



Lancôme Hypnôse Drama waterproof mascara


Save time after class by swapping to a waterproof alternative like this Hypnôse Drama waterproof mascara from Lancôme, which is great for volumous, high-impact lashes that stay put.


Shop Lancôme Hypnose Drama waterproof mascara, £24.50


5. Set it in place



Urban Decay De Slick Setting Spray


If you only pack one thing, make it this setting spray from Urban Decay. Free from oil and complete with temperature control technology, it ensures your complexion is left shine-free and keeps makeup in place.


Shop Urban Decay De Slick Setting Spray, £23.50


6. Take it off



Estée Lauder Double Wear On the Go Make Up Wipes


Don't have time to remove your makeup before the gym? Make it a priority straight after. While we would usually advise you use a proper cleanser, there's nothing wrong with reaching for a wipe as a quick fix. Just ensure they're gentle on the skin, like these from Estée Lauder.


Shop Estée Lauder Double Wear On the Go Make Up Wipes, £20


7. Set your brows



Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up


Don't waste your time trying to achieve perfectly defined brows in a crowded changing room. Instead, enhance your natural shape with a gel. Simply brush upwards in a zig-zagging motion for added thickness.


Shop Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up, £19


8. Restore the moisture



Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream 50ml


The most important thing you can do post-workout? Feed any lost moisture back into your skin. Use a lightweight, gentle moisturiser on clean skin to avoid dehydration, like this facial cream from Kiehl's which works to balance and comfort skin.


Shop Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream 50ml, £24.50
