Having a full face, high-velocity glam can be great to lift your mood & feel great about yourself... but let’s face it- swapping Foundation for Fitness Gear can feel just as good sometimes! Whether you’re actually going to the gym, or just have all the gear and no idea (read: Sunday brunch with the girls...we don’t judge) having a little bit of coverage can make you look, and importantly- feel, on top of the world.
Everybody knows your skin will get her karma if you decide to go on a 10k run or smash a massive sweat session at the gym with a heavy, full-face. I don’t know about you, but all I can think of is that nasty makeup separation, trapped toxins that are trying to get out, and clogged pores (they open up even more when your body temperature is high).
According to Andy Millward, a facialist, aesthetician & member of the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology, ‘’When the skin is warmer, it is more susceptible to product absorption. Meaning, makeup sitting on the surface will be absorbed quite easily which leads to congestion and blockages within the pores’’. If congestion builds up in the pores, they will stretch to fit those blockages- resulting in larger pores in the long run.
Additionally, we all know that sweating releases those nasty toxins in our body, so if you’re trapping them under a thick layer of foundation, those waste materials are going to stick to the surface of the skin. As you can imagine, not allowing these toxins to break free will inevitably make your skin look unhealthy in the long run, and will really hinder your skin from GLOWING!
