If there’s one person who knows how to pack a sports bag in style, it’s exercise aficionado and founder of chic sportswear brand The Upside, Jodhi Meares. Our recent interview with her inspired us to put together a Beauticate edit of the ultimate essentials for three of our favourite workouts. So whether it’s yoga, paddle boarding or running that you’re into, it’s time to get packing.
What to pack for Bikram Yoga
Soothing feminine tones of pink and purple add a refreshing vibe to an intense bikram practice. Add to that some wipes to take off the day, a stylish deodorant, a refreshing facial mist and Orchard St’s delectable Cashew Chai smoothie to nourish post-vinyasa. With Ayurvedic chai spices, dates and a pinch of sea salt, this alkalising, nutrient and protein rich nut and coconut-based smoothie promotes a calming, restful sleep.
What to pack for Paddle Boarding
Channel your inner gidget with neoprene accents, a faux glow and an action-girl bikini. A missoni towel adds a dash of unabashed colour while ModelCo’s bronzing sunscreen perfects and protects at the same time. Protect your lips from harsh UV rays with Chantecaille’s new lip sunscreen with SPF 15 the rose and honey blend will leave lips supple and hydrated until it’s time to paddle home.

What to pack for Running
Cool and crisp, hit the ground running in a wardrobe of ice blue and navy. You can work up a sweat with confidence thanks to Kiehl’s Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant deodorant which is super gentle yet industrial-strength, and protect your hard-earned hair colour with Kerastase Soleil Leave-In Sun Protectant. Now you see me, now you don’t.
