Skin is the most exposed organ of the human body. It works hard to protect from environmental hazards. Neglecting it can make us prone to disease, sun damage, and premature aging. A naturally sourced skin care routine and high-quality skincare accessories can slow visible signs of aging, helping it look soft and youthful. Exercising on a regular basis can help improve appearance and keeps you healthy, but it can also result in bouts of acne. Here are some tips for avoiding breakouts after hitting the gym.

Remove Makeup Before Working out

Ensure your pores aren’t clogged before you begin to sweat by removing makeup and cleansing the skin before exercising.

Don’t Touch Your Face

Exercise equipment likely has dirt and bacteria on it. Keep your hands away from your face, neck andback to prevent transferring it to your skin. 

Pull Your Hair Back

Hair can rub against your skin, irritating it during a workout. Use a headband to keep bangs off your forehead and wear long hair in a ponytail to keep it from your neck and back. 

Cleanse After Exercise

The equipment, towels, andother surfaces can all be sources of bacteria. A post-workoutface wash reduces the amount that can linger on your skin.

Use Gentle Moisturizers

Select oil-free products that won’t clog the skin. Vitamin C serum for oily skin is lightweight, non-greasy, and helps reduce wrinkles.

Exfoliate Regularly

Sweating and cleansing at regular intervals can dry the skin, causing it to flake. Exfoliating sloughs away old, dead cells to reveal soft, glowing skin and reduces clogged pores.

Keep it Cool

Exercise indoors with the A/C or outside in the cooler hours of the day. Thisreduces the oil build-upthat can cause acne.
