With Spring just around the corner, it’s time to get our body into top gear. Here are some tips on how to look your best even during your craziest workout sessions.
As a general rule, wearing makeup at the gym is not advisable because your pores open when your body temperature rises. You wouldn’t want bacteria to seep in and cause breakouts.
However, if you insist on glamming up, try waterproof mascara- it can really open up your eyes and won’t interfere with your skin either. Your face will look luminous on its own while you exercise due to the increase of blood circulation.
For those who prefer going to the gym at night, after work or school- try bringing makeup wipes with you so you can remove at least the top layer of your makeup. Remember to always wash your face and hands after your complete a workout to keep your skin clear.
Post workout, be sure to was your face with an antibacterial cleanser to maintain a clear complexion.
Put your hair up into a high ponytail or bun to keep it away from your face. If you have short hair, there are plenty of really cute headbands and clips to keep those strands in place.
If you are a runner, it’s important to always keep your toenails clipped short to prevent various unglamorous injuries. Remember since you are going to be sweating, make sure you wash your feet when you get home and hydrate them with anti-fungal moisturizers to prevent infections.
If you are planning to be outside during your workout, don’t forget to wear sunscreen all over your face & body that contains UVA and UVB protection.
Deodorant is a must all the time, but especially when you know you are going to be active. There are plenty of organic ones (if that’s your preference) to keep you from any embarrassing situations.
If this is the beginning of your workout journey be sure to take it slow so you don’t hurt yourself!
