By all means, when you’re at the gym, work up a sweat. A solid workout routine will do wonders for your overall health, but it can create a few problems in the skin care department. That sweaty layer you’ve got going on is clogging your pores creating a breeding ground for acne. Don’t let a little sweat stop you from having radiant skin. Just follow these skin care tips:
REMOVE THE MAKEUP
Ladies, if you’re hitting the gym after work, head to the restroom first and wipe the makeup off your face. The combination of makeup and sweat spells disaster for your skin. Use a basic face wash to remove the makeup from your face.
WASH YOUR FACE IMMEDIATELY
Once you’ve finished your hour on the treadmill, wash your face again. Yes, it’s a little repetitive, but it’s the best way to keep your skin clear of sweat-induced bacteria. Your skin is a bit sensitive after working out so the heavy-duty creams and moisturizers are best left at home. Save that for your pre-bedtime routine.
USE A MOISTURIZER
If you’re washing your face before and after you workout, your skin could get a little dry. To avoid this, use a basic facial moisturizer. Apply it to areas that are prone to dry skin, rather than re-clogging your just washed pores.
