8 Tips for after Gym Skin Care ...


You have your morning skin care habits and your before bed skin care regimen, but have you made your after gym skin care routine?

If not, you really should — you’ve done your body good by working out, so let’s make sure your skin stays happy and healthy at the gym too.

Here are 8 tips for after gym skin care.

1. Workout without Make-up

First of all, you’ll look ridiculous in full make-up, with raccoon eyes and runny foundation, there on the elliptical, and you might leave smudges of make-up on the equipment, too.

Second, you’re going to sweat it all off anyway, so do you really want to waste your fave MAC eyeliner at the gym?

Skip the make-up and arrive at the gym bare-faced, ready to get all sweaty from your workout.

The glow you’ll get from exercise looks so much better than bronzer, so this is my first (and maybe most important) after gym skin care tip!

2. Skip the Tanning Bed!

Most gyms have tanning beds (fair or not, I blame this on the GTL craze on Jersey Shore), but the first step in after gym skin care is to skip the tanner.

It’s harmful to your skin, in so many ways… there’s deadly skin cancer, for starters, which is on the rise, dramatically.

But there’s also the range of cosmetic skin concerns, like wrinkles and sun spots, so skip the tanning bed!

3. Be Gentle

If you’ve been sweating for the past hour (and you should have been!), then you might be tempted to scrub yourself from tip to toe to feel clean again, but this could spell disaster, especially if you have sensitive or dry skin already.

Use a gentle shampoo and cleanser, which will do the trick no matter how sweaty you’ve gotten.
