Where to start? it is important to think about what goes into your gym bag and what you need to ensure you have the best experience possible. Start with your face care routine- moisturizing face masks, cleanser or exfoliating face wash to wash your face and clear dead skin cells. Skin care products now come with certain ingredients for certain skin types however while you're working out your skin is sweating and going through a workout of its own. Our range of face creams can help re hydrate your skin fast. If you workout outside, you'll need products with spf to protect you from the sun. A gentle cleanser will wash away the impurities without putting your skin through more stress. Once you have cleansed and moisturised why not apply a toner.
