About a month ago I joined LA Fitness to jazz up my fitness routine and get really toned for my wedding next month. I usually hit the gym first thing in the morning before work (I get it out of the way and it’s less crowded!). But some nights I go to t fitness classes for a change of pace. I’ve been noticing some ladies coming to the gym and to class with a full face of make up on! Some have on perfume so strong I can smell it a few feet away!
This may seem very unbeauty blogger-ish ….but the last thing I want on my face when I’m about to get downright sweaty is makeup! I get it that some people come straight from work to the gym and I’m no exception. But along with my change of clothes and my sneakers are makeup remover , my cleanser, and moisturizer. I always make an effort to go to the gym with a clean face so I don’t have to worry about anything running into my eyes, caking up my sweat towel, or worrying about breaking out from a bad combo of sweat and foundation. True there are some makeup brands that are safe for your skin while your work out. But for me, sweaty makeup is a definite no-no for me and my skin!
What do you ladies think? Do you work out with make up on or do you feel the same way I do?
