Incorporating a proper post-workout skincare routine can help minimize potential skin issues caused by sweat. So, on the days you workout, perform your post-workout skincare routine in less than 5 minutes after your workout. This will most likely mean that you will need to take your skincare products with you to the gym, yoga class, school locker room, etc. (#EmmeTip: Our Skincare Travel Set’s compact size is perfect for keeping in your gym bag).

Here is a full breakdown of pre-and post-workout routines based on which skincare set you use!

Sweating it out is beneficial for both your body and your skin. But remember, sweat, if not managed properly, can also create an ideal environment for skin issues to thrive. So, completing your skincare routine pre and post-workout is crucial.
