Working out has a lot of skincare benefits for your skin.
"Exercise helps maintain healthy levels of the stress-related hormone cortisol, which could lead to breakouts or cause the collagen in your skin to break down, which can increase wrinkles and sagging." Dr. Timm Golueke
However, if you don't take care of your skin after you work out, the sweat and dirt can cause you to break out.
Therefore a good post-workout routine is important to maintain your after glow.
#1 Wash your face
Wash your face as soon as you're done working out. Thoroughly cleanse and dislodge the pores from debris, sweat, and oil to prevent breakouts.
#2 Use an essence
To get rid of excess dirt and oil focus on exfoliating ingredients like lactic acid and fruit acids.
„A good workout will actually help your body in the production of collagen, and this keeps your skin firm and supple.” Dr. Timm Golueke
#3 Apply a serum
Apply a gentle, nurturing serum post-workout to help with redness and blemishes, and encourage a healthy glow.
#4 Seal it with a light cream
Look for anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients in your moisturiser that can help tamp the redness down.
