HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SKIN POST WORK OUT
Wash your face immediately after your workout. It’s one a few skin-care rules that you should never break. You don’t want a cocktail of dirt, oil, and bodily fluids clinging to your skin, affecting its pH, and clogging your pores. You can use a cleansing facial wipes..
How to wash your face after a workout:
The main thing is to get the dirt, grime, and sweat off your skin.
Use a gentle cleanser: Stay away from cleansers that contains ingredients that can overly dry skin. Try an anti bacterial cleanser, a cooling gel based face wash or a gentle milk cleanser.
Try tepid water: End with a few splashes of cool (not cold) water. The lower temp can cool your skin, of course, but it can help close your pores, which dilate to help release sweat.
Pat, don’t wipe, your skin dry with a towel: Toweling off sometimes can irritate skin, particularly if your face gets really red when you work out.
Don’t dry your skin completely: Allow your skin air-dry. Somehow this helps curb an otherwise tight and overly dry feeling.
Apply your sunscreen: Applying a good sunscreen helps protect your skin from harmful radicals.
Save serious treatment products for bedtime: Sometimes, even a normal skin can be more sensitive right after a workout, so you may want to wait until redness dissipates or bedtime to use your super active acne or anti-aging treatment products.
