Throughout the winter a lot of people avoid the healthy lifestyle and exercise in favour of over indulgence. Cold and dark nights make it almost impossible for people to motivate themselves to actually go out and exercise so this time of the year people are working doubly hard to try and get their body beach perfect ready for summer.
Although working up a sweat a few times a week is great for your body though, it’s certainly not good for your skin – especially if it’s sensitive or you’re prone to spots.
Sweat will block your pores and the heat combined with the moisture of sweat creates a breeding ground for bacteria which is seriously bad news for your skin if you don’t get rid of it properly. Swimming can cause harm to as the chlorine in the water is particularly harsh and will lead to dry, irritated skin.
If you use the right skin products though, exercise won’t be a problem at all and your skin will remain at its best. Dermalogica Skin Purifying Wipes come in a great, handy pouch and they can be put with your gym kit and used to remove excess sweat and oil from your face after a workout. Dermalogica also have a whole range of miniatures that are easy to transport in your gym kit and will allow you to fully cleanse and moisturise your skin after a session at the gym.
