Post Workout Routine For Keeping Your Skin Healthy And Beautiful
Probably the biggest reason why you breakout after a workout, aside from the sweat, is due to touching gym equipment and then touching your face to wipe off the sweat.
Safest best is to use a towel but this is probably wrong too. The moment you reuse the towel you’ll probably will be spreading bacteria you just wiped off. Paper towels will work great since you can just discard after each wipe.
Below is a compilation of beauty and workout gurus that will help you sort out your post workout routine.

Putting yourself together post-workout is one of those arduous tasks that can keep you from getting in a good sweat session, and some people make it look way easier than others. As a matter of fact, we wondered how our favorite beauty experts, the folks who give tips and tricks to getting your beauty game back in gear after a hard-core workout, put themselves back together after their favorite workouts. So, we reached out to some of the top beauty mavens in the industry (and one hard-core training expert who works with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson and Jennifer Lopez) to get their post-workout beauty secrets, and they were more than happy to dish:
Name: Joanna Vargas, celebrity esthetician and creator of Joanna Vargas Skincare.
Favorite Workout: “I love Flywheel, it’s a great workout for a busy person. It’s so short and sweet with 45 minutes of major calorie burning.”
Favorite Post-Workout Secret Weapon(s): Joanna Vargas Vitamin C Face Wash and Daily Serum.
Why It Works: “I’ve always gotten really red after cardio, and most women I know who work out have a lot of trouble with breakouts, especially around the hairline. I love using this face wash after a workout because it exfoliates and thoroughly cleanses my face. I follow with my Daily Serum; it’s a light formula and doesn’t make me feel like I’m suffocating in heavy product. Both products have anti-inflammatory properties to reduce redness immediately, and the serum has tons of greens to support a healthy lymphatic system.”
Name: Kattia Solano, Celebrity Hairstylist and owner, Butterfly Studio Salon.
Favorite Workout: “I’m obsessed with The Bar Method and SoulCycle. The Bar Method is the most amazing work for all my lady curves. It’s changed my hips legs and butt!!”
Favorite Post-Workout Secret Weapon: Oribe Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream.
Why It Works: “Usually I wear my hair in a knot. I apply this light styling cream and create a high, loose knot. After class, I use a blow dryer to break up the knot and create soft fullness. Also, since SoulCycle is so intense (you sweat A LOT,) I usually take the opportunity to apply a mask or oil treatment ( I love coconut oil) in my hair right before class, then wash my hair after. It’s a great way to sneak in a hair treatment AND a workout.”
Name: Tracylee, Sally Hansen Nail Ambassador.
Favorite Workout: “My favorite workout is boxing with my trainer. This cardio exercise, works my entire body and gives such an amazing dopamine and adrenaline rush, it’s the only exercise I don’t want to end!”
Favorite Post-Workout Secret Weapon: Sally Hansen’s Smooth & Perfect Hand Creme.
Why It Works: “I wrap my hands under my gloves to protect them while training, and the wraps combined with gloves (pink, of course,) can chaffe and dry out my hands. I carry the hand creme in my purse so I can put it on post workout and keep my hands smooth and hydrated.”
Name: Sonia Kashuk, celebrity makeup artist and creator, Sonia Kashuk Beauty.
Favorite Workout: “My favorite workout is this run/walk that I do in the hills near my house in Connecticut. It’s 4-5 miles with a lot of incline and it’s super hilly, but it’s so pristine and beautiful. I think being outside in nature is the best possible place to work out. I work out often, but being outside is my favorite.”
Favorite Post-Workout Secret Weapon: Dewy Luxe Lip and Cheek Balm.
Why It Works: “If I’m working out in the country, my routine is different than being in the city, where I might have meetings afterward, so I don’t like putting a whole lot on my skin. I’ll come back, stretch, take a steam, then a shower. I love how my skin looks afterwards, so I’ll just apply a little lip and cheek balm for a hint of color. I like to bring that flushed color in my cheeks out a little more, and that’s about it. My skin feels so healthy and happy after working out, so I like to keep it in that really clean state as long as possible.”

Exercise is a great way for me to reduce stress and keep me healthy. Of course the benefits for your skin are many since you’ll be improving circulation and oxygen but by also reducing stress you can keep yourself looking young!
Lastly, I look forward to seeing you at the salon where you will be dazzled by how great your skin looks.
