When we outlined the basic skincare regimen, we told you that it’s imperative to tend to your skin as soon as you wake up, and just before going to bed. It’s these two times of the day when you need to transition skin into its daytime defenses or its overnight restorative efforts.
But what about all those hours in between? And specifically, what about if your lifestyle puts extra pressure on your skin throughout the day? Athletes and active people come to mind: They get up, wash their face, apply a moisturizer, but then, at some hour between morning and evening, they work up a sweat. Maybe it’s gradual, or maybe it’s an intense cardio session. Either way, it demands a significant alteration to one’s everyday skincare regimen.
Now there’s an extra regimen added in the middle of the day, and one that must center on fighting breakouts, controlling oil and sweat, and helping skin recover from all of this activity (in other words, helping it rebound so it looks firm, bright, and healthy despite all the added activity).
To cover all these concerns, here is a new spin on that basic skincare routine, aimed at athletes and active people.
