Working out is great for your mind and body, but can wreak havok on your face. Normally, I have pretty clear skin, but when I’m doing a lot of sweaty workouts, I notice my forehead breaking out a bunch. Does this happen to you too? I have started washing my face in the gym locker room as soon as I finish my workout (as opposed to waiting until I get home) and I feel like that has helped a lot. I keep foaming face wash pads in my gym bag and they are perfect because you just throw them away after each use. I’ve had them so long that I threw away the original package, but I think they might have been Olay 2-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths. Super convenient and helping cut down on the breakouts.
At home, my skin is sensitive so I stick with the same gentle cleanser I’ve been using for years (Cetaphil) and then sometimes at night also use good ‘ole SeaBreeze (for sensitive skin). For a moisturizer/sunscreen, I also wear Cetaphil. It’s the only sunscreen I’ve found that won’t break out my skin- besides the spray on kind I wear at the pool. Both Cetaphil and SeaBreeze are sold in the drug store/grocery store.
Obviously my skin care routine is pretty sparse. I drink a lot of water, try to avoid sun on my face, and wear a visor when I run or go to the pool, but that’s about it. Are you doing facials, skin care “systems” or have any particular products you love? I have a friend who is a consultant for Rodan + Fields and she swears by it. She gave me a mini facial to try that I still need to do. I’ll be hosting a giveaway for Rodan + Fields soon too if you’re interested in that line.
