You go to the gym on a regular basis. Good for you! You’re doing something beneficial for your mind and spirit by working out each week. Maybe it was part of your New Year’s resolutions, or the importance of regular exercise has always been a factor in your healthy lifestyle. Now let’s talk about makeup. Do you wear it to the gym or not?
If you head to the gym with makeup on that’s your choice. No big deal. We understand that you want to look your best at all times. The other side of things is that more than likely you are stopping by the gym after your workday or while you’re out running errands, so it’s natural that you have some makeup on if you wear a full face on a daily basis. With that being said, after your workout, it’s vital to take care of your skin. Here are some easy skincare tips to practice after the gym, so that your skin remains healthy and glowing.
Bring A Few Essentials To The Gym
There are a few products you can throw into your gym bag that will freshen up your skin after the gym, even if you don’t have access to a sink. Grab some facial cleansing wipes, your ASDM Beverly Hills Moisturizing Toner, and a lightweight moisturizer, like our Water Cream Moisturizer. These three products will clarify and get rid of any oil, sweat, or bacteria on your skin after a vigorous workout.
The Importance Of Cleansing After A Workout
The reason it’s vital to cleanse your skin after a workout is because that sweat and makeup mixed together have the potential to clog your pores. Acne can become a real problem fast. Not washing on a regular basis after a workout can also lead to dull skin with a less than radiant tone and texture. There is also the potential for irritated and inflamed skin if you don’t care for it in the right way after a sweat session. You can do these three steps after a workout in less than three minutes. Your skin is depending on you!
Three Minutes To Better Skin
First, wipe down your face with the facial cleansing wipes. If there is access to a sink and you would rather just cleanse your skin with your normal facial cleanser, that’s even better. ASDM Beverly Hills Moisturizing Cleanser is perfect. Plus, if you don’t want to bring the entire bottle of cleanser with you, buy a set of travel sized plastic bottles. Empty a week’s worth of your cleanser into the bottle to use at the gym for the entire week.
Next, use your toner. Wipe this all over your skin with a cotton pad for that extra fresh clean. Not only will this bring your skin back up to the proper pH levels, but it will remove any excess residue and help to unclog your pores. Toners, in general, have a gentle exfoliation action each time you use them, so they are terrific for imparting brightness to your skin.
Finally, you want to hydrate that clean skin with a lightweight moisturizer, like the Water Cream with hyaluronic acid. Once again, you don’t have to bring the whole container with you. Just scoop some out into a plastic travel container to use on the go.
When you take care of your skin after a workout, you’ll be surprised at how much better it looks for you. You don’t even need that much when you get right down to it. It’s time for basics, you don’t have to worry about loading on the products or serums. Just three minutes and three products. That’s all for after gym skincare.
