Post-workout skin is tricky to manage. The combination of oil build up from heat and sweat and the sensitivity that causes means your skin needs a balanced approach to make sure your skin can adjust appropriately and recover from these stressors.

1) Get out of your clothes ASAP

When you're wearing those cute leggings and compression tops in your workout class, they might look fab, but they're not exactly great for your skin. Those tight, moisture-wicking fabrics? They don't let your skin breathe and can trap sweat, oil, and dead skin for ages, setting the stage for breakouts. So, as soon as you're done sweating it out, ditch those tight clothes ASAP! Your skin will thank you later.

2) Gently cleanse your face and body

Our AMELIORATE Clarifying Clay Body Wash deeply cleanses the skin, removing sweat, oil and dead skin build up that cause blemishes to appear while helping to lock in moisture.

Sticking to a salicylic acid cleanser can clean the face of sweat without causing irritation. AMELIORATE Clarifying Facial Cleanser is our creamy, non-stripping foaming facial cleanser which is perfect balancing for post-workout skin.

3) Dry your skin softly and avoid over-exfoliation

Avoid scrubbing your skin after hitting the gym; it can cause more harm than good. Post-workout skin is delicate and prone to micro-abrasions, so opt for a gentle cleanser over a mechanical exfoliant to refresh your skin effectively. Make sure when your dry off with a towel you are gentle so you don't irritate your skin more than necessary.

4) Treat your skin right

Our Clarifying Body Spray helps prevent breakouts on blemish prone bodies. When dead cells collect on the skin’s surface, this can trigger congestion, dirt and bacteria to collect causing the skin to become prone to imperfections, blemishes and dullness. The 360⁰ nozzle is specifically designed to target those hard-to-reach areas of concern. The spray is refreshing to the skin as well to make sure your skin is calmed and exfoliated without irritation.

AMELIORATE’s Transforming Facial Serum soothes your face and décolletage with this hydrating and exfoliating serum, charged with a powerhouse of high-performance active ingredients to provide visibly smoother skin. This will reduce the sweat-induced redness and appearance of irritation.

5) Restore your skin's moisture

Our AMELIORATE Transforming Body Lotion has been given a floral, yet zesty kick with our Orange Blossom fragrance. Our moisturiser is ideal for post-workout skin due to its hydrating, nourishing, soothing, and repairing properties. After exercise, skin often becomes dehydrated, stripped of nutrients, and may experience irritation or redness. This lotion replenishes lost moisture, provides essential nutrients, soothes irritation, and supports skin repair. It leaves the skin refreshed and rejuvenated after a workout session, with our zesty fragrance to help you feel your best after a sweaty workout.

AMELIORATE’s Replenishing Facial Cream moisturises, nourishes, and smooths the appearance of redness with this hydrating face cream. Supercharged with powerful active ingredients, it will soothe, nourish and protect the skin and restore the hydration lost through sweat.
