Do you wear makeup while working out?

Do you wear makeup while working out?

Every gal wants to look her best, and for some of us that even means looking great while we're at the gym. If you just don't feel complete without foundation and mascara, you may want to consider a few of these tips for keeping your complexion blemish-free while you're working up a sweat.

"Wearing makeup while working out can hinder some of the natural ways your skin adjusts to exertion, like sweating and dilating pores," says New York City dermatologist Erin Gilbert to Allure Magazine. "This can be a disaster as it often leads to clogged pores and breakouts."

You can prevent breakouts by washing your face with a cleanser like Elemis Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser. Formulated with sunflower seed oil, soothing vitamin E and lime blossom, this non-foaming cleanser can remove skin impurities prior to exercise, priming your face for the application of beauty products.

After using the Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser, consider using a mineral foundation like Colorscience Pressed Mineral Foundation that was designed with athletes in mind. This waterproof foundation is sure to feel weightless on skin and won't clog or trap sweat in your pores, which can lead to blackheads. With heavier foundations, you're more likely to get a caked-on appearance that will create an awkward situation if you happen to sweat profusely from your workout.

Once you're done exercising, it's important to remove makeup using a mild cleanser or cleansing pad. Otherwise for sensitive skin types, excess dirt and sweat can irritate flesh.

Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!|
