So how should you manage your post-gym skincare routine after those sweaty workout sessions?
Today we are tending to help create a skincare routine for all those strong women who sweat at workout sessions.
GET OUT OF YOUR GYM GEAR
Sure you look cute in your gym gear but you don’t want tight leggings and a sweat-filled T-shirt to stick on your skin with the trapped oil and dead skin for hours. So make sure to change as soon as you are done.
CLEAN UP ASAP!
Splash your face with cold water. What I do is that I use a salicylic acid cleanser (check CeraVe, Cetaphil or a good local brand) to help unclog those pores so that you can remove all that sweat, debris and oils that you excreted in the gym. Best it to take a shower
Double cleansing has picked up and has become one of the most popular skin trends, thanks to Korean skincare. And what it means that you use two types of cleansers; one is oil-based like balm and the other is water-based like a gel cleanser.
APPLY A SERUM
Go for an activating serum to help you lock in all the moisture and gave you that glow. Hyaluronic acid helps to plump and sooth the skin.
After a game in harsh temperatures or a workout session, your skin needs some pampering. Best time to moisturize is after your skin comes back to normal temperature post work out.
No matter which decade you’re in, SPF IS A MUST. There’s no excuse to not wearing one and there are a lot of budget and luxury brands available to cater to your skin needs. Opt for a non-comedogenic and oil-free sunscreen to protect your skin.
