If you love the great outdoors, you know that some beauty products can be a downright hindrance instead of helping your skin. Women on-the-go often find that their makeup and other beauty products cause them to breakout with unsightly skin conditions.
But don't ditch your beauty routine just yet! The trick to balancing your love of the outdoors with your skincare regimen is finding products that work for you.
If you have an active day ahead of you, skip the foundations and powders and opt for a tinted moisturizer instead - preferably one with solid SPF protection. Keep eye makeup to a minimum, with just a splash of color finished with some waterproof mascara. Finally, protect your lips with a subtle gloss that offers a little UV cover.
Adjusting your makeup is only half the remedy. The rest lies in a good skincare routine. Always have cleansing pads on hand, such as Elemis FreshSkin Make-up Away Cleansing Wipes, to use after athletic activities. A good cleanser is also essential, followed by a toner that replenishes the hydration lost from perspiration, such as Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner.
Don't let your makeup products ruin your love of the outdoors! Treat your skin the way it deserves to be treated, and stop those unsightly breakouts.
