I would like to send you all a message of hope for your January skincare problems. If you’re anything like me, you may have over consumed carbs and sugar around the holidays. I also started working out at the beginning of January to work off the weight I gained over the holidays. My skin is having some breakouts which is normal when you start a new workout routine. As I sweat and work out my body is releasing toxins and bacteria comes through my pores. When you see a breakout arise, spot treat the breakout, do not put a harsh cream all over your face if you only have one or two breakouts. Unfortunately because of the weather my skin is also very dry right now. If you see or feel that your skin is dry, use a heavier night cream. I have also been using a heavier serum during the day underneath my day cream. Do not worry this too shall pass!
As we dedicate ourselves to getting fit for the new year, remember when you sweat it release toxins and opens your pores. Its best to wash your face within 20 minutes of a workout. Put an extra cleanser (face wash) in your gym bag. If you do not wash before those pores close back up then you are susceptible to bacteria spreading and causing breakouts.
