Make up for the gym?
Take a long swig from your water bottle and get stretched before starting that intensive workout! But, the question is…are you wearing make up? It’s a do or don’t for a lot of us out there, and others wonder how much is too much? Or do you go completely make up-less to the gym? Let’s look into it some more!
Caring for your skin! It’s no surprise that it’s rather easy to clog your pores. It’s also no surprise what happens when your pores do get clogged. (Oh no!) Of course we all want to avoid those unsightly zits and other issues so it’s important to clean your face daily. Quite a few dermatologists have told us that wearing make up at the gym can cause the dreaded pore-clogging as well as bacteria build up. Not to mention that the last thing you want is to get off the treadmill looking like a panda due to running eye liner! Although, regardless of the warning from doctors and the fear of looking like raccoons and pandas, we still see girls applying make up in the locker rooms. So…what to do?
Do or Don’t? Am I guilty of wearing make up when I work out? Yes. I will admit to it! Although, I’m not the only one! The trend for make up at the gym isn’t heavy and rarely involves ANY foundation or base of any sort. Why? Some girls complain that it feels heavy, or they are worried about sweating it all off. Instead, just a gloss on the lips and mascara (just make sure it’s water resistant!) on the lashes. This won’t be too showy, but it will still let you feel sexy while running/lifting/stair climbing/jogging or whatever your routine includes! Although, there are a lot of girls who don’t wear any make up at all at the gym, so don’t feel pressured to try to primp before taking to the machines.
The most important part! Is to always make sure to wash off your face AFTER you work out! With your fresh face and the satisfying after-work out burn you can re-apply your make up (if you want) and head out looking and feeling great! All this talk about the gym is making me crave a good work out! Be sure to check out the wellness services offered by the best salon and spa downtown Pittsburgh, Verve 360!
