How your workout can affect your skin


Stay hydrated by drinking water before, during, and after exercise.

Solar protection: 

Wear UV protection when exercising outdoors.


After exercising, wash your face and body to remove sweat and bacteria. Avoid overdrying with a mild cleanser.


Use a skin-type-appropriate moisturizer to avoid dryness.

Dress appropriately: 

Chafing can be reduced by wearing moisture-wicking, breathable clothes.

Quick Shower: 

Shower right after exercise, especially if you sweat a lot. Hot water strips skin of natural oils, so use lukewarm.

Avoid Makeup: 

Avoid applying heavy makeup while exercising to avoid clogging pores and breakouts.

Clean Gear: 

Cleaning gym equipment before and after usage reduces bacterial transmission to the skin.

sensitive areas:

Use petroleum jelly on chafing regions like underarms and thighs.
