In case you missed it this weekend, we felt the sweat and catharsis at The Class by Taryn Toomey in Tribeca with instructor Courtney Deri. The team invited us to chat afterwards about skincare as self-care and walk through a sample post-workout skincare routine.
POST-WORKOUT MUSINGSSkin is the window to the body’s overall wellness and a natural link to all of your health efforts.
Be mindful that even with “gentle” products, you can strip the skin of its natural moisture. Workout folks who wash their face more than just at morning and night should be cognizant of this.
Embrace sweat as the body’s natural detoxifying process. Just clear it off when the work is done.
Balance and simplicity are key to a strong routine.
A customized, monthly approach to skincare is the best way to greet changes that come up in your life.
A SAMPLE ROUTINE FOR THE WEEKEND WARRIOR
A thoughtful creamy cleanser like the Grown Alchemist Olive Leave Plantago Cleanser won’t strip the skin, but will remove make up and debris. Once a week we like to create a foaming mask with One Love Organics Brand New Day + Vitamin B Cleanser for a deeper clean.
Keep the Supergoop! Rosemary Setting Mist in your gym bag for a midday re-application of SPF. (Importantly, don't rely just on an SPF mist for your full SPF protection. We use it as a top-up, not our base coverage.)
