Clear-Skin Secrets from Sweaty Professionals
Essential advice to beat breakouts while you work your bod
Don't let breakouts put a damper on all the benefits your regular exercise routine provides. We asked skincare and fitness professionals (who sweat for a living) to give us their very best tips for keeping their skin clean and clear, even with multiple sweat sessions a day.
If a midday workout doesn't leave you enough time for a proper shower afterwards, cleansing wipes can come in handy. But there's no need to spend tons of cash to replace your stash. Try this $3.00 (or less) solution from Erin Akey, a certified personal trainer and water fitness instructor in Mobile, Alabama:
"One tip I give all of my runners is to buy a bottle of witch hazel and a pack of alcohol-free baby wipes (preferably with aloe). Pour the witch hazel into the pack of wipes so that they're all soaked through. Before each run, wipe your face well with a wipe. Then, wipe again after to get any dust and dirt from the road out of the pores (I always suggest doing this before they cool-down while the pores are open). This is a very inexpensive way to keep your face clear and glowing!"
