Skincare Tips Before, During And After A Workout Session: Expert Do's And Dont
Through an Instagram video, Dr Jaishree Sharad shares her best tips on keeping the skin healthy before, during and after a workout.
Remember moisturise your skin, especially elbows, knees and ankles
There's nothing like a good workout session - the happiness and pride we feel after losing those excess kilos is incredible, whether we are working out at a gym, or outdoors for a jog, in the swimming pool, or just doing yoga. An added advantage of a good workout is the glow that follows a sweaty workout? Isn't it wonderful to have that glowing skin? However, if you don't care for your skin after working out, sweat and dirt might create breakouts. As a result, you'll want to keep up with skincare routines that help prevent acne, increase moisture, and reduce inflammation and damage.
In an Instagram video, dermatologist Dr Jaishree Sharad shared a few tips for a solid skincare routine before, during and after a workout.
Here's what she advised:
Cleanse your face with a facewash.
Apply a moisturiser and sunscreen.
Avoid make up to prevent clogging of pores.
Wipe sweat with a clean, soft napkin.
Spritz thermal water mist on your face to hydrate your skin and cleanse the sweat salts.
Do not touch your face. Your hands may be dirty.
Take a shower immediately after a workout.
Change your sweaty clothes.
Moisturise your skin, especially elbows, knees and ankles.
Do not wear the same sweaty clothes the next day.
Wash your clothes and socks in hot water.
