Wash Your Face BEFORE You Work Out

When the girls start their workout, they should wash their face and remove the makeup from their face. If they do not remove them and let them on their face, then this makeup can be reason for clog pores and cause irritation on the faces of the girls. If the women and girls need some makeup while working and having sweat, then they should choose oil free or lightweight tinted moisturizer or add waterproof mascara and foundation on their face, which can help them in avoiding the pores. You should wash your face before going to workout or going to gym in the morning. When you wash your face in the morning, it clears the skin and let the pores open to take out of the sweat from their cleared skin. There is mix of dirt, skin, oil and debris, which is pushed into the skin so the girls should not use towel after washing their face, as it can cause the blemishes and clog the pores, which can hinder the sweat to come out of the clear pores of the skin.

Wear the Right Clothes

The girls should choose the right kind of clothes while taking the exercise. The clothes should be soft and loose and they can absorb the sweat during the exercise & it does not leave harsh on the skin. The fabrics should be soft and they can prevent the sweat to sit on the skin for a long time & it should absorb the sweat as well as give the soft and good sensation to the girls.

Put Your Hair Up

While taking the exercise, girls should put their hair up in shape of braid or ponytail, so that it should be away from the back, face of neck and do not create hindrance in doing the exercise. When the girls use styling products in the hair, then it can cause the breakouts after transferring it into the skin.
