Makeup for the gym

A while back, I broke out badly after a lot of sweaty gym sessions. I quickly realized I was going straight from a long day of full face medium coverage makeup and layers of powder (because I’m always oily as fuqqq) to a full sweaty gym workout. Skin care is so essential to your beauty and makeup routine.

When you workout, your pores open as you sweat. When your pores open, they let makeup fall in and give you blemishes.

At the gym, you should try and wear as low coverage makeup as possible, but I understand the want to look cute. I do too!

Besides cute hairstyles and gym attire, a little makeup goes a long way. I use Almay Clear Complexion Concealer, which conceals redness, bags, and acne nicely and is not oily or as bad for the skin. I also use waterproof mascara, lip stain or balm, and a little blush for color. Post workout, I find translucent powder and blotting sheets awesome for decreasing shine.

If you have to wear foundation to feel evened out, try BB creme, especially brands with salicylic acid. It’s low coverage, but your skin will thank you.
