Post workout skincare

A trip to the gym can do the soul a world of good – if only we could get motivation! But when the mood does strike, you should be skincare prepared. We all know not to wear makeup to the gym, it’s just a disaster waiting to happen. But what should you do to your skin post workout? Well fear no more, we have the answers:   

Avoid the tanning beds

It has been proven time and time again that sun beds deplete the skin’s collagen, they also cause sunspots and can cause skin cancer. Opt for a gradual tanning product instead – we love St Tropez’s in-shower self tanner. Shop
   

Hit the showers

If your muscles are sore don’t be tempted to have a hot shower – opt for lukewarm water to cool down. Your skin will thank you. If you want a deep cleanse a light exfoliant. Shop  
   

Moisturise

Routine

SPF

Hydrate
