Practicing Yoga and walking are my main forms of staying active. Whether you are a gym rat or yoga junkie, improper skincare before/after a workout can lead to breakouts, irritation, unwanted skin troubles.
Here’s what you can before and after a workout:
✅Wear minimal makeup (avoid it altogether, if you can)
- Sweating enlarges your pores, makeup particles can enter the pores and possibly clog them causing breakouts and uneven skin texture.
- Your skin becomes the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and the makeup clings on to these bacteria causing acne and irritation.
- Dead skin cells may clog your pores when you sweat, therefore, exfoliate weekly with a gentle scrub to prevent drying and dullness.
✅Take a cold shower
- Jumping into a hot shower or sauna right after a workout will dry your skin and possibly increase the visibility of pores and wrinkles.
