Easy Skincare Routines For Before and After the Gym
Posted on 01 April 2021
Sometimes you need a grueling sweat session at the gym to de-stress from a hectic day. Whether the gym is your sanctuary or you’re just there for a quick workout, it is important to also take care of your skin before and after you go. Follow these quick and easy pre- and post-workout skincare routines to maintain your healthy glow!
Before You Go to the Gym
Step 1: Cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser to remove any debris buildup or make up. Washing your face before your workout is just as important as washing your face after a workout. If your skin is cleansed, there is less opportunity for grime to accumulate and clog your pores. It’s also important these days to cleanse beforehand if your gym requires you to wear a mask.
Step 2: Hydrate your skin with a lightweight, fast-absorbing moisturizer. Routinely moisturizing your face maintains the overall integrity of your skin.
Step 3: Apply an SPF lotion to protect your skin from sun damage, especially for outdoor exercises.. Even when leaving your house and going outside for a little, it’s still important to make sure you’re protected by the sun. When fully absorbed, it blends into your skin leaving no residue!
When Your Sweat Session is Over
Step 1: Cleanse and exfoliate your face and body to ensure that dirt, oil, and sweat is eliminated to prevent pore clogging and potential breakouts . Body Merry's Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser is packed with willow bark, glycolic acid and jojoba beads to exfoliate the skin surface and kojic acid and plant oils for skin nourishment. If you’re new to this cleanser, start using it once to twice weekly and gradually increase usage to build up tolerance.
Step 2: Apply a face serum per your skin type. For example, use a serum with retinol if your skin is blemish-prone or a serum with hyaluronic acid if your skin is dry.
Step 3: Moisturize your face and body. Skin hydration is essential for preventing damage and wrinkles.
