Every time you see him, workout music turns to violins playing, the wind starts blowing and the breaking of sweat is not gross anymore. He is like a drill instructor on a mission to banish the flab. Under his command, you crawl across the floor, jump like a deer and squat like a kid! Every time he utters those two magical words, “Let’s go” the words “I can’t” fall off your dictionary.

Did that sound exactly like your current situation with your gym instructor? Do you have a big fat crush on your instructor? Well, then it is only natural that you want to dress your best, to the gym and we T.O.T.A.L.L.Y understand but unfortunately, your dermatologists and skin care experts won’t. According to dermatologists, wearing makeup to the gym is not always the best beauty practice but that doesn’t mean you can’t cheat! Read on as we take you through a quick guide to wearing makeup to your gym so you can exercise without the fear of your skin breaking out...

Sunscreen is a must

Make it a point to apply sunscreen to your gym. Why you ask? Because it is important to care for your skin no matter where you are! We suggest you wear the Lakmé  Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Gel Sunscreen as its gel formula will give you a matte finish, is light on the skin and won’t clog your pores post all that sweating.

You can invest all you want in waterproof makeup but if you don’t prime your skin well, your makeup won’t last the sweaty workout session. So make sure you prime your face well. If you ask us, a thin layer of the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer before applying your BB cream should do the trick.

Keep it light with a BB cream

It is NOT advisable to wear a foundation or a BB cream when working out but if you absolutely must dress your skin up to the gym, then opt for a light formula of a BB cream. Our pick for the gym is the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream as it offers complete coverage without making your skin suffer from a heavy cakey texture.
