The Importance Of A Clean Face Before You Workout

Today I am super-super-super excited because we have a s very special guest on the blog – one of my my favorite bloggers out there – Yadira

Here is some info about Yadira and her Ah-mazing blog (in case you haven’t stumbled upon it yet):

Yadira Galarza created from her own passion for health and beauty. As an IIN
trained Holistic Health Coach and a Health and Beauty Editor on The Grace Tales
she has her focus on health even when she isn’t at work. Clean Beauty Talk is
another avenue for her to write about fun new beauty products and health
information that she currently obsessed with. Yadira strongly believes that
beauty is all about wellness and how well you treat your body, inside and
outside. This means eating the right foods, having positive thoughts and moving
your body regularly. I strongly recommend you to check out her website: to see some
great tips, reviews and conversations

But enough talking, let’s jump into the article and see what Yadira has prepared for us…

How much makeup
do you wear when you workout? Your answer…should be none. Why? Because the more
makeup you wear while trying to get a body to envy JLo’s, the more your pores
will suffer and get congested while you sweat.

So is it worth

For some ladies
who have skin that isn’t prone to 
breaking out you might not even notice, but
if your skin errs on the more sensitive side, you should invest in some quality
cleansing wipes and get used to going au-natural (which I know might be a hard thing to do).

San Diego-based dermatologist Jeffrey
Benabio, MD says foundation is the worst thing you can wear on your face during
a workout as it clogs pores and leads to breakouts, although wearing lips and
eye products on the other hand, isn’t as bad.

“Your lips don’t have any hair follicles, so
there’s nothing for lip color to clog, Benabio says. And though it
is possible to get a pimple around
your eyes, it’s unlikely to happen,” he adds.

So how can we overcome our need to look
primped during a workout? My answer – is to get used to going makeup-free.
Dedicate one day a week to wearing less
or no makeup (if you can) and
you’ll slowly learn to love your natural glow. If that sounds too hard I highly
recommend learning to exercise 
first thing in the morning when your face is
fresh and you’re not wearing a hint of anything on it.

But if those two tips sound more like a
nightmare for you than a dream, I’ve outlined a few simple makeup swaps that
will save your skin from breaking out and feeling congested below.

Ditch your foundation

Foundation is the
worst makeup product you can wear when you workout so swap it for a BB cream or
tinted moisturiser instead. Both these options are less thick so less likely to
block pores. 

What To Try: La
Mav Organic BB Cream

Concealer + Powder

If you really
suffer from ‘people can’t see me with makeup on syndrome’ opt for wearing a
hint of concealer and brush on a light natural powder instead. Powder is much
less likely to cause you any problems over its liquid BFF’s and we all know a
teeny tiny bit of concealer can go a long way. 

What To Try:
La Mav Anti-Ageing Mineral Foundation

Use Only Non-Comodegenic, Natural And Organic

This should
really be a given every day, although especially when you work out. Don’t use
any generic brands with ingredients you can’t identify.

PS: You should really take the plunge and try a workout
makeup-free. How about trying it in a dark spin class? Promise nobody will even
