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.
Give your skin a boost after a sweaty gym session with this recipe for an all-natural, refreshing toner from Rebecca Pacheco, a yoga instructor at Equinox in Boston, Mass., and creator of OmGal.com: Simply brew your favorite green or herbal tea, chill it in the refrigerator, and then pour it into a spray bottle. That's it!
Use peppermint tea to energize, antioxidant-rich green tea to nourish, or chamomile or lavender tea to calm your face and your senses. It's inexpensive and you can stash the spray bottle in your gym or yoga bag for fresh, vibrant skin on the go, Pacheco says.
