Post Workout Skin Care

Everyone follows a morning and before bed skin care routine, but do you have a after gym routine? Here are some ways you can take care of your skin post workout

Workout without make-up

Make sure you are not exercising with make-up on. Not only will you end up looking ridiculous but also it will keep your pores blocked while you are exercising. Thus, skip the make-up and arrive at the gym bare-faced. Be ready to get all sweaty from your workout and don't worry about how you look with all the perspiration on your face!

Don't use hot water

After a workout, your muscles are sore and you are already very exhausted. Even though washing your face or taking a shower with hot water might ease your muscles, but it will also strip your skin of vital oils, leaving you dry and itchy.

Re-hydrate your skin

The best time to re-hydrate your skin is when you are right out of the shower. Take a few minutes and apply a generous dollop of your moisturiser and body lotion. This will keep your skin supple and moist.

Be gentle

If you've been sweating for the past hour, you might be tempted to scrub yourself from tip to toe to feel clean, but it could only spell disaster for you! Use a gentle shampoo and cleanser which will ensure that you stay clean and your skin stays soft.
