Taking Care of Your Skin: My Post-Workout Skincare Routine

As y’all know, I’m a bit obsessive about taking care of my skin and making sure it looks its best each and every day. The better your skin looks on its own, the less make up you need, the more your skin can breathe, and this all circles back to the better it looks on its own. And who doesn’t want skin that looks good on its own?


One of the simplest steps in my routine is one that I’ve found also makes the biggest impact. Washing your face seems like a no brainer, but when I skip it, I can absolutely see a difference within a day or two. Especially if you live in a city, you would be shocked at how much dirt and pollution can attack your face throughout the day. It just makes sense to wipe away all the residue that you can’t see when you get home after a long day – and this is particularly true if you’ve added in a workout.


When you work out, it’s common sense that your sweat can clog your pores and if you let that sweat sit, then it will work together with bacteria to cause breakouts. Definitely not something that will have your skin looking its best! That’s where Zapzyt’s Pore Clearing Scrub and Acne Wash come into play. 

While I don’t have to deal with too many breakouts at this point in my life, I do like to reach for something with salicylic acid when I’m looking for a deeper clean after a workout or just every couple days to clear my pores. With 2% salicylic acid, Zapzyt’s products are strong enough to clear skin of dirt, oil, and blackheads without stripping the skin of moisture or leaving it irritated. It gently fights potential breakouts while leaving skin soothed and reducing redness.


Of course, there are times when it’s time to pull in the big guns because preventative washing has let a little breakout sneak through. That’s when I reach for the Zapzyt Spot Treatment and make sure that any breakout is stopped in its tracks.

One of the best things about using these Zapzyt products is that they utilize salicylic acid to exfoliate and clear pores, which is so, so much better than some of the harsher products that are out on the market. These products are ideal for daily maintenance and prevention – they’ll treat your skin gently while keeping it looking its best.
