Raise your hand if you need to go to the gym but don't want to.
Honestly, for me, the hardest part of going to the gym is actually getting there. I've tried signing up for "fun" classes, buying new outfits, but it always feels like a process getting ready/un-ready to go. Whenever I do actually make it, one thing I've learned is to never skimp on the skincare. I've found that taking the extra steps before and after a workout make a world of difference.
Here is my step-by-step regimen to keep my skin healthy during and glowing after a sweat session.
First, I use a make-up remover wipe (baby wipes are an effective and cheap dupe!) to remove the majority of my make-up, and follow with a quick lather using Philosophy's Purity facial wash.
Next, I use vaseline to get rid of any remaining eye makeup. Just glob it on, do a quick swipe or two with a cotton ball and any left over traces of mascara/liner will be gone!
Last, I use my Coconut Balm DotCom and a good moisturizer from Glossier for any dry patches. If my workout is outside, I definitely apply some SPF to any exposed areas, including my face!
After mopping off the gallons of sweat, I turn to my Clarisonic for 60 seconds of some serious TLC with more Purity face wash. I then load on the moisturizer and a little bit of eye cream to calm down any redness or dryness that came from that (sometimes) rare sweat session.
How do you guys take care of your skin when it comes to the gym?
