If you’ve ever gone to the gym before work, then congratulations! It’s a great idea. Although, it’s not so great when you discover that you only have 15 minutes to take your look from sweaty to smart; and that somehow, every other woman has decided to do the same. Add to this – limited mirror space, half-naked 60 year olds, and hair so frizzy that you’re considering skipping work.
However, there’s no need to panic. These smart, affordable and simple products will have you looking sharp and sweat-free in no time:
