THE LOOT: Spin-class gear like sneakers and tights take up all the room in her tiny duffel, leaving just enough space for drying, alcohol-laden grooming goods.
THE REBOOT: A roomy leather carryall stocked with more gentle skin and hair multitaskers will make the post-class dash to work quick and easy.
Cleanser: Keep breakouts at bay with a salicylic acid face wash that dissolves dirt, sweat, and oil in one step.
Hairbrush: This double-duty tool with superabsorbent microfiber bristles sops up excess water while detangling strands.
