Post-workout care is crucial to clear, healthy skin. Jill suggests showering and replenishing with protein and carbs, while Cybele has more specific instructions.
"Change out of exercise clothing as soon as possible and shower," she says. "Wash your face, and if not possible, I think a skin-cleansing wipe can be great. Simple makes them, and I love the Neals Yard ones."
"Try to clean off makeup before exercise, especially if it contains silicones, which can clog up the pores as you sweat—the silicones create a barrier (which is why makeup glides on after a silicone primer), but I don't use any skin care products with silicones as I feel like my skin can't breathe," she says. "Silicones are great for wound healing because they are occlusive, but that is what I don't like about them for overall skin health. And if you have hair products in your hair that have silicones or mineral oil, put your hair off your face in a bandanna."
There you have it: More exercise means clearer skin. Time to hit the yoga mat!
