Quick, lightweight, and effective is the theme of this 3-step skincare routine for sweat. Whether you’re about to whip up a meal, hit the gym, or punch the clock, this minimalistic routine will save you time and provide an extra layer of protection to combat environmental aggressors.
The Sweat Routine
iS Clinical | Warming Honey Cleanser
Gyms are filled with hatin’ a*s bacteria. Ready to smack a pimple mid-forehead before a dinner date. This rich honey gel-cleanser made with papaya enzymes and green tea extracts is my go-to before and after CrossFit. Honey is known for its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, benefiting oily (THAT ME!), acne-prone, and scarred skin. It leaves the skin smooth and even.
Tip: While in the shower, let the honey cleanser sit on your face while you bathe to double as a mask.
Youth to the People | Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Face Mist
We’re all about adaptogens, baby. This fine adaptogenic face mist is essential to the sweat routine because it is calming and soothing. Its lightweight and fragrance-free attributes minimize skin irritation while working out in a mask. Its proprietary adaptogen blend of ashwagandha, Rhodiola, and reishi addresses irritation, dehydration, stress, and exhaustion of the skin.
Tip: A little goes a long way. Before a workout or in between Zoom calls, mist to freshen up your moisturizer or mood. Try misting your neck and shoulders.
Youth to the People | Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream
Made with Youth to the People’s proprietary superfoods blend of kale, spinach, green tea, alfalfa, and vitamins C, E, K, this fluffy moisturizing gel cream is light-weight and ultra-hydrating. It is packed with phytonutrients and nourishing antioxidants to protect the skin from oxidative stress which can cause skin wrinkling.
Tip: Use morning and night. Place the cream in the fridge beforehand for a chilled facial massage.
