Fitness and beauty are two things, the objectives of which are not too different from each other. They make you feel better about yourself. There’s perhaps nothing more invigorating than a good sweaty workout or a nice relaxing trip to the parlour.
‘Athleisure beauty’ an expression that has been gaining a lot of popularity of late, combines the best of both worlds by curating beauty products that allow you to hit the gym with full gusto without having to worry about going bare skin or having your makeup ruined. After all, what’s the point in trying to get fitter if you’re not looking good doing it?
What is ‘Athleisure Skincare’?
Athleisure beauty products can essentially be classified into three categories—sweat-proof and smudge-proof makeup, natural makeup products that are less detrimental to your skin while exercising and those products which have just been inspired by the concept of fitness and wellness.
Is it good to wear makeup to the gym?
Well, plainly put forth, wearing makeup to the gym is not really a very good idea from the point of view of skincare. The tremendous amounts of sweat that you produce while exercising help detoxify your skin by getting rid of all the toxins from it. Any makeup that you apply inhibits this process in varying degrees, depending upon how breathable it leaves your skin post application.
Why you’ll absolutely love Athleisure Skincare
Athleisure skincare is all about channelling that post-workout glow with the minimal use of products that still allow your skin to breathe. The Lakmé Absolute waterproof mascara and lightly tinted lip balm like those from the Lakmé Lip Love Lip Care range can go a long way in accentuating your post-workout radiance.
There are also certain skincare products that allow you to fake that after-gym glow without really hitting the gym. It’s more about using makeup to enhance your natural complexion and glow with the help of translucent and dewy makeup products such as the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation.
However, no matter how much or how little foundation you’ve applied, it is absolutely imperative that you take it off with the help of a gentle cleanser like the Lakmé Deep Cleanser Cleansing Milkk before you start working out. Letting your skin breathe is only going to make your skin look healthier and more radiant.
