Post-Workout Skincare Tips For A Clear Complexion

Post-Workout Skincare Tips For A Clear Complexion

A good workout is good for your body, mind and spirit, but it’s not always skin-friendly! Frequent sweating, rubbing your face and the release of toxins during exercise can leave you with blemishes, so follow our top tips to keep your skin looking clear and radiant even after a solid workout.

Before You Hit The Gym

It’s advisable to remove your makeup before you hit the gym to prevent the sweat and makeup combining and clogging your pores, which are more open during a workout, leading to blemishes and irritation.

So before you hit the treadmill, remove your makeup using Magnitone London’s magical WipeOut! The Amazing Microfibre Cleansing Cloth. The innovative skincare must-have tackles stubborn makeup using just warm water – ideal for when you’re rushing from school to the gym.

During Your Workout

When you’re half way through a tough workout and sweat is trickling down your face, it can be tempting to keep wiping your face to get rid of the sweat, but this can transfer millions of bacteria from your face, especially after you’ve been using gym equipment. Try to take a clean towel with you to the gym, so you can gently pat away the sweat from your skin, without introducing too much bacteria to your face.

After Your Workout

Cleanse

If you want to maintain a gorgeous, clear complexion, then cleansing your skin after your workout should be the first thing on your mind. The Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Cleanser will help you to clarify and refresh your skin after a hard workout, without stripping the skin or drying it out. The 0.4% concentration of Salicylic Acid works to gently exfoliate the skin after your workout, helping to remove sweat and oil from deep within the pores to prevent those pesky breakouts.

Refresh

If your face is all red and blotchy after the gym, try splashing your skin with cold water to help constrict blood vessels and calm down the skin, followed by a refreshing skin mist, like the Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist to calm down your complexion. The blend of Orange Blossom Water, Citrus Fruit Extracts, Lavender and Arginine work to revitalize and reenergize the complexion, refreshing your post-gym skin.

Soothe

Ease your sore muscles after the gym with thisworks’ Perfect Body Muscle Therapy. The roller ball design has been formulated for quick, on the go relief from sore, tired muscles. The soothing formula contains a blend of natural essential oils which work ease pain and relax the muscles after a rigorous gym session.

Makeup

If you’re rushing somewhere else after your workout, applying a thick foundation to your warm skin is the last thing you want to do. If you just can’t go without a foundation, opt for a mineral foundation like the Elizabeth Arden Mineral Makeup to soothe and nourish your skin and leave you with a bright, radiant complexion.
