Normally, we would advise against wearing any makeup to the gym. As we all know, exercise makes us sweat and, in the process, pores widen to expel the toxins from the body. The last thing our skin needs is a dense layer of product that can potentially clog those pores and cause problems later on. That being said, sometimes, we just need the added mood boost of a freshly made-up face to keep us going throughout the day. It’s quite the same thing with putting on cute gym wear to psych you up for your workout — a placebo effect if you will. Below are our tips and product recommendations to get your gym face on.

Three things you get from the tinted moisturiser: hydration, light colour-correction and sun protection. When it comes to wearing base makeup to the gym, it’s best to go in with a light hand. The bareMinerals’ award-winning tinted moisturiser promises natural coverage while its clean formula makes it friendlier for your pores. Keep unwanted shine at bay with a light dusting of the talc-free Mineral Veil Finishing Powder.
