Once summer is in full effect, our social calendars fill up with outings. We tend to be on the move a lot more, catching rays and sipping rosé between handling life’s many responsibilities. And even with the million and one things we have going on, we have to find time to workout, because health is wealth. Spoiler: you don’t have to skip your workout to run errands or meet the gals for happy hour. This summer, stock up on some gym-approved beauty products that can take you straight from the pilates studio to whatever activity is marked on your to-do-for-fun list.

Even if you don’t have plans post workout, here are 20 gym-approved beauty products that will outlast every sweaty summer situation. The best part? You can look photo-ready during those endless ab twists and squats (if that’s your thing).
