With spring just around the corner, many are in the gym getting their bodies beach ready for the warm weather and outdoor activities. But with all that working out and sweating, it’s important to make sure you’re also taking care of your skin.
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice great skin and a even tone for that flat tummy, so SHEEN has you covered with 3 tips on how to keep that beautiful clear glow.
Create a skin care gym routine
It’s true that working out can leave your muscles looking great at the cost of your skin, so having a routine to clean your face before and after working out is vital. Though you may have a morning and evening routine already, it’s important to consider creating a routine for cleansing your skin that can begin even while you’re still at the gym. This includes a facial wash and moisturizer, which is separate from your normal body wash. Your face will thank you.
Be tender with your skin
You’ve just spent hours working out and you’re covered in sweat from head to toe, so it’s understandable that you may feel the urge to vigorously scrub every inch of your body. But this is not a good idea as it could cause damage to your skin and cause irritation later.
Instead gently massage your face as you would normally do.
Preparation is key when you’re trying to keep your skin healthy while at the gym. Make sure that you’re avoiding direct contact with gym equipment. Though it may be a hassle, try wearing clothing that covers your body or bring a towel to place on items where your skin may be exposed.
