Workout skin care: Make-up and working out


Happy weekend, everyone!

I already posted two blog posts earlier today, but I still wanted to give you a few tips. 

Today’s topic is workout skin care.  Should you wear make-up to work out?  Is it bad for your skin?

The general rule is; don’t work out with full face make-up:

I know that you want to look your best whatever you’re doing, but your skin needs to breathe.  You should always cleanse your face thoroughly before exercising.  Be sure to remove all foundation, since it will melt and mix with the sweat to block pores and cause blemishes.



If you are one of those people who wouldn’t be caught dead without make-up, use mineral make-up.  Mineral make-up is talc-free and won’t clog pores!  You could also use a tinted moisturiser.  Also, make sure that your mascara is waterproof.   


It’s important to cleanse again after exercising.  You should rinse your face with cold water; this will tighten the dilated capillaries that have expanded during exercise.  Always follow with your usual day cream.
