How to Treat Skin After a Workout

What's your skincare routine after a workout? Do you splash water and go? Do you bring your products with you? 

Working out and skincare is always a hot topic. In our fitness lifestyles, we are wearing little to no makeup so the skin is front and center. 

That's why it is so important to take care of it! Here's some ways we can take care of our skin after we are done crushing our workouts.

Apply toner. Toner is a great way to treat skin after a workout because it is an easy swipe of a cotton round. It also is light to pack in a gym bag and quick to apply before moisturizer. 

Murad's Clarifying Toner is a personal favorite toner that can be applied after any sweaty workout.  Another great one is Clinique's Clarifying Lotion 2 for an easy swipe of the cotton pad! 

Use facial wipes. Facial wipes are another perfect item to pack right in the gym bag. They also are perfect to rub off any nasty grime left behind in our workouts. 

There are many options out there for this quick cleansing solution. Some favorites are Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes, Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Towelettes, and Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths

Pack travel-size cleanser. The travel aisle is not only for vacation, it also is for gym packing. Finding small, compact cleansers is a convenient option to washing the old-school way. 

Many cleansers can be found in smaller sizes, such as CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser, and Philosophy Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser. With these options, we can certainly wash and go quickly without the hassle of carrying a heavy cleanser bottle. 

Remember moisturizer. Moisture is key. After any of the above ways we choose to cleanse, our skin will crave rehydration. 

That's why bringing travel-size moisturizers are important too! Some personal favorites to use are CeraVe Moisturizing Cream and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Let's take care of our skin, as much as our bodies. Our skin is just as important as our bodies. Neglecting one or the other will not lead us to healthy lives! 

Does anyone else have skincare recommendations for after working out? Does anyone have any favorite products?
