Wouldn’t it be great to have clear skin and a great figure?! Well Yasmina Kamli Head Aesthetician at London Real Skin can help with the skin stuff, going to the gym will then be down to you! Below are her top tips for looking after your skin whilst working out….
Remove makeup especially if you are prone to spots, when your face sweats pores can become clogged by makeup causing a bacteria build up leading to unwanted pimples.
Drink plenty of water before, during and after your workout. This is good for the whole body but will keep skin radiant and help combat dryness.
Use a sweat band to keep hair off the face, hair can be oily and can cause spots around the face.
Clean gym apparatus with anti-bacterial cleaner (usually in the gym) to avoid dirt/bacteria on the skin.
Take a clean towel with you to wipe sweat to minimise blocking pores.
Soprano Laser Hair Removal is a popular treatment to remove hair from the armpits, legs and bikini line for women. Far more effective than shaving and waxing which can irritate the skin when sweat produces salt which causes irritation to the skin and can cause in grown hairs (www.londonrealskin.com).
I would also suggest a NeoStrata Clarifying Peel with Mandellic Acid and Citric Acid every few months if you are prone to acne or spots. To help decongestion the skin, disinfect and help with irritation sweat can cause (www.londonrealskin.com).
