We all know how important it is to exercise and work up a bit of a sweat on a regular basis. Working out can have a detrimental effect on your complexion, however, particularly if your skin is sensitive and prone to developing spots.
Excessive sweating can increase the risk of pores becoming blocked, while the heat and moisture generated by exercising can encourage the proliferation of bacteria. Swimming can cause problems, too, as the chlorine in the water can leave your skin dry and irritated.
We are not trying to discourage you from getting enough exercise, however; you simply need to make sure that you have an effective post-workout skincare routine that ensures your complexion looks its best!
Make sure that you cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin once you have finished exercising; Dermalogica Travel Sizes are perfect for putting in with your gym kit, meaning there is no excuse for not looking after your skin!
In a recent interview with FemaleFirst, the captain of Britain’s synchronised swimming team revealed that she relies on Dermalogica Cleanser and Toner to keep her complexion clear, and the Overnight Repair Serum to give her skin a refreshing boost to give her skin a refreshing boost before a competition.
Cleansing your skin will ensure that you remove any excess sweat, bacteria or chlorine that could cause you problems, while the refreshing spray-on toners will soothe, cool and moisturise your complexion.
