Hey gym enthusiast! Follow these simple skincare tips to achieve glowing skin

But worry not, as we are here to help. Don't let breakouts put a damper on all the benefits your regular exercise routine provides. Here are some skin care tips to help your skin look its flawless best even after a sweaty exercise session...


Pull your hair back

Take care of your body too

Irrespective of the length of your hair, always remember to pull it back from your face. Either use a headband or tie your hair into a ponytail and secure the flyaways in place with bobby pins. This is because hair products combined with sweat will clog pores and cause your forehead to breakout.


Touch me not

Take care of your body too

Never touch your face after working out if you want to prevent acne. The germs and bacteria from the sweat as well as the gym equipment could transfer on to your skin leading to infections or breakouts. If you want to clean your face of sweat, always keep a clean towel handy.


Workout with a clean face

Take care of your body too

Hitting the gym with a cleansed face is a great idea. Remove all the makeup and wash your face before working out. Use sunscreen if you are working out outdoors. The mixing of the sweat and makeup could adversely affect your skin and lead to irritation or breakout.


Clean your face after working out

Take care of your body too

It is extremely important to wash your face after you work out to eliminate all the sweat and acne causing bacteria. Remember to use a gentle cleanser that works for your skin type. Pick a cleanser that has ingredients such as glycolic acid or tea tree oil. These ingredients can prevent your pores from clogging.


Take care of your body too

Take care of your body too

Don’t forget to change out of your sweaty clothes after your workout. when you exercise, your body tends to sweat and release toxins. These toxins get soaked into your clothes. If you don’t change your clothes, the pores on your body can get clogged, leading to body acne. Make sure to shower and change into clean clothes.
