Going to the gym is suppose to be a stress free zone. You sweat all your problems out, you are working on becoming a better you so why cheat yourself to a flawless skin. Wearing makeup as you workout is a big NO-NO.

Sweating is a naturally detox but when you’re wearing makeup, it is nearly impossible for those toxins to exit. When your heart rate rises and you start sweating, your pores open to release sweat. If you’re wearing makeup, it can go in those open pores. The result: clogged pores, breakouts and blackheads in the near future.

It's ideal to remove makeup before beginning a workout by using a cleanser. Mostly everyone goes to the gym after work or school and do not want to carry a big cleanser bottle, instead you can use cleansing wipes. Cleansing wipes are disposable wipes that help get rid of all the makeup and dirt in your face. Cleansing wipes work perfectly for someone who is on the go.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes are tough on makeup and can even remove waterproof mascara while still being gentle on your skin.
