If you live the active lifestyle and do a lot of exercise then the truth is that although your body may be healthier than most, your skin’s probably suffering. Have you noticed that you tend to suffer with spots and breakouts much more than your unfit colleagues? Well, as horrible as it sounds, it’s probably caused by sweat.
Keeping fit is all well and good but you should always ensure that your skin gets some proper treatment afterwards. Although when you’re running, cycling or at the gym you probably notice that you’re sweating, by the time you get home you’re usually dry so you forget and although you have a shower you probably forget to clean your face properly. This could be a key contributor to your spots.
The combination of sweat, dead skin cells and the skin’s natural oils accumulating on the surface of the face means that pores become blocked quickly, and blocked pores lead to infection and spots. You don’t have to choose between your skin and fitness though; fitness just means that you have to think about your skin a little more often. Dermalogica’s Skin Purifying Wipes come in a small handy packet and they’re great for throwing into your gym bag; if you use one wipe after each run or workout then your skin is guaranteed to improve. The wipes are anti-bacterial and remove sweat and oil and refresh the skin. They also prevent the pores from becoming blocked by removing dead skin cells which means future breakouts can be kept to a minimum.
However, although Dermalogica’s Skin Purifying Wipes save your skin in the gym, they don’t make up for a proper skin care regime so remember to check out the rest of the Dermalogica range.
