Should you wash your face after a Workout?
You’ve just finished a workout and sweat is pouring down your face. Instead of reaching for the towel, you may want to read on, to find out exactly why you may want to put a little bit more consideration into your after workout regime.
When you sweat, your body is going through a detoxification process. Toxins are being brought to the surface, if this sweat is not cleansed away, those toxins will get reabsorbed into the skin - So wiping with a towel, may be reversing some of your hard work!
As well as your body releasing toxins from within, if you workout at a gym, if you were using public yoga mats, the chances are high that you would have been exposed to environmental germs.
To avoid putting your face at risk to inflammation, clogged pores and breakouts, it’s important to develop a skincare regime to compliment your workout. We’ve selected three products that you may want to check out - all available in store.
