It’s a plain and simple truth: looking good means looking after your skin. Most men, both on and off the sports field, want that competitive edge, so when it comes to skincare why not up your game with these simple post-workout skincare tips?
1. USE SKIN CARE PRODUCTS THAT SUIT YOUR NEEDS
You’ve heard of a Bring & Braai, right? Well this is a Bring & Shower. Hitting the sports-club showers with your own face care products will prevent you from having to use a regular soap bar. Soap bars can cause dry skin by stripping the skin of its natural oils and will leave it feeling tight and looking dull. By using skincare products that target your unique skin concerns, you’ll retain that healthy look that you typically get after a mean workout. Try Vaseline MENface 2 IN 1 CLEANSE AND SHAVE which is a cleanser and shaving product in one, because less products means less fuss, and more convenience.
2. AVOID BAD BODY ODOUR
Even if you’re not really interested in male grooming, know this: No guy can afford sweat stains and bad body odour, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve just done a quick 10km around the track or not. Body odour is a deal breaker on every level of social interaction. The good news is that the key to always staying fresh is simple and threefold:
1 - Thoroughly wash your armpits, back, feet and any other areas that tend to become sweaty.
2 - Clean shirts only! Even if it means always having a spare shirt on a clothing hanger in the back of your car. If you know you’re going to be doing some form of exercise then you definitely need to pack an extra set of clothes that you can change into after the game.
3 - Use a good anti-perspirant. Look for variants that offer 24 – 48 hour protection.
3. KEEP YOUR FEET FRESH
You may think that funky-smelling feet is just a guy thing but to the people around you it’s not cool, nor is it healthy. Save the locker room - and your house - from shoe stench by leaving sweaty trainers in the sun to dry, rotating your sports shoes and throwing your socks in the wash after every single use. This means a separate pair of socks for work, and for sports and for the clothing that you put on after the game. If the problem persists, find an odour neutralising, anti-fungal foot powder at your local pharmacy.
4. GO FOR COOLING CREAM
Whilst exercise is great for your overall health and wellness, it can give your skin a pounding. Skin tends to become dehydrated from sweating and exposure to the sun. Beyond rehydrating your body by drinking water, your skin needs nourishment as well. Vaseline MENbody COOLING BODY LOTION and CREAM will give your skin a cooling sensation that will make you feel instantly refreshed.
