What not to wear to class....

Makeup.... that's what not to wear to class or the gym.

But why?

Well....when you elevate your heartrate a few things happen...one, your pores become slightly enlarged and two your body produces sweat. When you sweat your pores need to breath. Wearing a full face of makeup can block your pores and glands, hindering your skin’s ability to breathe, which in turn can result in breakouts, blackheads and skin irritation. 

We understand a lot of women might be coming to class after work. Therefore you may already have your face on for the day. It's recommended that you wash your face right before your workout. If you can’t resist wearing makeup, its suggested by most dermatologist that you for an oil-free, lightweight foundation or BB cream, a lip balm or Chapstick and waterproof, silicone-based mascara.

There is a popular brand called Tarte that offers a foundation which is oil-free SPF 20 tinted moisturizer. Natural sheer-to-light coverage and non-chemical sunscreen ingredients. They actually have a whole athleisure makeup kit. 


In addition, if you’ve chosen to wear makeup while working out, then it’s crucial to cleanse tone and exfoliate your skin immediately after.
