Why should we have a skincare routine post-workout

As much as working out is important for the better functioning of our internal organs, having a skincare routine is important for the external barrier of the body i.e, skin. As we workout, exertion causes our sweat glands to overwork in turn producing more sweat. All of this sweat and sebum can

  • Clog pores
  • Cause breakouts
  • Excessive redness
  • Acne flaring
  • Skin infections similar to dermatitis
  • Chafing
  • Itching and many other issues.

To eradicate these problems, one must have a skin-clearing routine after a workout. Some of the steps that we can take except doing a skincare routine to reduce these skin issues are skipping heavy makeup while working out, and always wearing a broad spectrum UV protection Sunscreen that doesn’t clog your pores. Not taking these precautionary measures can have damaging effects on your skin.

Keeping a healthy skincare routine pre and post-workout can keep your skin in Its prime condition. It can also help you to keep away many skin disorders. Some of the steps which you can take to keep your skin healthy post-workout are as follows

  • Cleanse – When you are done with your workout session, showering is the best choice to thoroughly cleanse and dislodge the pores from debris. It can break down sweat and oil to prevent breakouts. Body cleansing is as important as face cleansing, so take a ‘non-cosmogenic’ cleanser and gently massage your face with it. Don’t forget to use a good anti-fungal body wash for the skin on the body.

  • Scrub– It is recommended to not use a scrub on your face or your body post-workout as the skin is sensitive and prone to more micro-abrasions.

  • Serum – Apply a serum to the face, like ones that have epidermal recovery and growth factors. These help with redness and blemishes.
