If you have somehow, by some miracle, made it to the gym after days of procrastination (guilty), just to sweat it out and find your mascara and eyeliner running down the side of your eye, then you better check yourself before you wreck yourself girl! Because working out with that paint on your face could cause breakouts – and nobody wants that. But how can you not dress your face when you have a cute guy at the gym? #FirstWorldProblems
And sometimes what it really gets down to is basically this decision: makeup or the gym? But we’re too young to make those difficult life choices. So, to help you get a workout in, as well get the almost “no-makeup” look , we’ve put together a list of 5 things you need to remember before you step on that treadmill…
While we realistically can’t, one can actually wash their face before they hit the gym. Get your morning mascara off and keep the eyes simple and mascara-free!
A beauty-girl can never have enough of bobby pins and hair ties. They might get lost, stolen and even take up most of your vanity space, but the feeling of putting your hair in a ponytail or a braid, away from your face will make your workout 10 times better!
Unless you want really bad tan, wear sunscreen on your face as well as your body. Also, if you want a healthy and pretty glow, use a tinted sunscreen with really powerful SPF!
Working out might leave your lips dry, so carry a small lip balm with you and your lips will be pout ready always!
Lastly, you can always cover up and get the “I woke up like this” look. Just use a light weight foundation that will help you achieve a flawless and natural canvas. And one product we can recommend is Lakmé’s weightless mousse foundation!
So, if you’re committing to better fitness this week, time to commit to the right beauty game too! Amirite or amirite?
