Experts do not advise women to wear makeup when exercising, as most makeup products are not designed to withstand perspiration. The makeup will come off and when you sweat, you are leaving yourself wide open to breakouts.
Despite this advice, many women would rather drop dead then go to a gym without their blemishes and dark spots covered.
If you fall into this group of women, here are some professional tips that your complexion will thank you for later on:

1. Wash With An Oil-Free Cleanser
If you are prone to acne or oily skin, wash your face with an oil-free cleanser before working out. This will get rid of any bacteria that might surface when your pores are open due to exercising.
You also want to apply a layer of gentle moisturizer, especially if your skin is sensitive and tend to leave a burning sensation from sweating.

3. You Are Set On Wearing Foundation
If you are set on wearing a foundation, there are many cosmetic lines that offer a sweat-proof foundation and are available in many shades.
You might want to consider applying a primer first if you have oily skin or are prone to sweating heavily when working out. Choose a primer that will make your skin more matte and will absorb excess oils before applying your foundation.
4. For Your Eyes
You will want to use an eye shadow that offers a gel or liquid base and choose one that is a subtle shade. Also, follow up with a water-resistant mascara with a silicone base.
As eyeliner will definitely run, try a liquid based liner and apply it only to the top lids. This will give you a subtle look without fear of the liner running.
5. Leave Your Lipstick At Home
Try applying a subtle shade of lip stain instead of lipstick. It’ll give you a natural look without the worry of smudging during workout.
If you choose a natural color, try a little gloss after your workout is done.
6. After Workout Clean Up
Wash your face with a mild cleanser or facial cleansing wipe.
To protect your complexion from possible breakouts, you want to wash off all excess makeup, sweat and dirt.
Follow this up by applying a protective layer of gentle moisturizer.
