Facial Care and Work-outs

Saturday, November 27, 2010

I read somewhere that you must wash your face prior to working out at the gym or simply exercising at home. This idea actually makes sense especially if you have been out on the streets the whole day (pollution, smog, ack!) or wore make-up. When you sweat during work-out, your pores open up and when you wipe the perspiration off your dirty face, the dirt will get pushed into and clog your pores which may cause pimples and blackheads. Would you rather go for the best acne treatments later than spend a few extra minutes in washing your face when you can actually avoid the former? Anyway, washing the face after a work out is also advised to avoid further clogging of the pores.
