Finally the government has announced UK gyms can re-open from the 25th of July!

Exercise is awesome for your mental health, and can be great for your skin. It helps to reduce stress-related hormones such as cortisol which causes breakouts. However if you're not preparing your skin properly, sweat and dirt can cause breakouts 🙃 Here's some top-tips for avoiding breakouts post work-out.

1) Wash your face before and after going to the gym

Going to the gym fresh-faced is the best way to let your skin breathe during exercise. Allowing your skin to sweat-out excess oils and dirt. Then wash your face again post-workout to stop any sweat residing on the skin!

2) Always Shower Post-Workout

 Sweat left on your skin allows bacteria to develop and affect your skin, causing breakouts and more. So make sure you're showering for your skin, as well as the smell 🤢

 

3) Always moisturise post-workout.

Working up a sweat can also dry out the skin. So be sure to moisturise after exercise to keep your skin feeling as great as your body!

 

4) Avoid scrubs

Post-exercise skin can be tender, so avoid putting unnecessary pressure on the skin using a harsh scrub!
