We know it’s tempting to wear makeup at the gym, you’ve got your Victoria’s secret yoga pants and crop top at the ready so it’s only natural that you want to pop some foundation and bronzer on too. Or maybe you’re going straight from work and don’t have time for a pre workout cleanse? Well, here’s why you NEED to brave it and set aside just one minute to go barefaced – trust us your skin will thank you later.
So why is it bad to wear makeup at the gym? When you exercise, your face inevitably sweats (whether you feel it doing so or not) and your pores relax and enlarge. If you have a layer of makeup on top of your skin, it becomes almost impossible for sweat and bacteria to break through the barrier. So guess where it all goes? Nowhere. It stays in your pores, clogging them up and creating the perfect environment for acne and blemishes.
With the Clarisonic Mia Fit, you can effectively remove makeup in as little as 60 seconds, plus thanks to its compact design you can discreetly pop it in your gym bag too.
