Working Out & Oily Skin Do's & Don't

Working Out & Oily Skin Do's & Don't

MORNING

PRE-WORKOUT

It will depend on how your skin feels. If your skin tends to be oily in the morning, then use a foaming cleanser. If it's under control, a light foaming cleanser. Yes, there is a difference between both of them, as one will focus on controlling the oil-flow, while the other will also rebalance the skin’s hydration level. The difference between them will completely depend on their ingredients and texture.

POST-WORKOUT

Continue with your normal morning regime. The skeleton of your skincare regime should include a Foaming Cleanser, antioxidant serum & a moisturizer that already contains SPF.

EVENING

PRE-WORKOUT

Pre-workout cleansing should not even be a question for this skin type, as on top of pollution particles, unwanted substances as well as remaining make-up and SPF, those oily skin will have more sebum and congestion at the end of the day. Therefore, make sure to properly remove your make-up with a gel or foaming cleanser to eliminate that greasy “shield”.

POST-WORKOUT

Ask yourself the same question as before: Are you planning to go out and re-wear make-up, or go straight back home watch a movie and chill?

  • If make-up is part of the plan, keep it simple with a foaming cleanser & a light moisturiser. After your night out, make sure to do your full skincare regime

  • If you’re planning to head home, we would recommend simply cleansing your skin and then applying a hydrating serum. Once home, continue with your full evening skincare regime, which should involve a double cleansing routine, an exfoliation step (3x week), targeted serum (hydrating or retinoid) & a light moisturizer.
