Are you someone who works out everyday or plays a sport? This means you probably spend a good portion of your day sweating. It's great to be active, but you may notice your skin is not thanking you for it. Excessive sweating can cause a build up of oil, bacteria and dirt on your skin. This can be the cause of your acne. So, how can you manage this?
Washing your face before working out is actually very important. It can remove any bacteria that is on your skin, preventing you from spreading it while sweating. If you like to wear makeup, make sure you remove it before you hit the gym. Working out with makeup can cause a buildup of oil, which can clog your pores and prevents your skin from breathing.
Do not touch your face! You may have the urge to wipe the sweat from your forehead, but this can actually spread even more bacteria from the equipment you have been touching. Maybe use a sweat towel instead.
Finish off your workout by cleaning your face with room temperature water. Hot water has the potential to remove moisture from your skin. Use our Double-Duty Amino Gel Face Cleanser + Makeup Remover to exfoliate and clean your skin. This product is made with plant-based ingredients that will naturally freshen up your skin.
