You may not be competing this summer, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t going to try to medal while embracing physical activity in the summer sun! Before hitting the pool, park or field, make sure you and your skin are prepped and ready. Don’t know where to start? We’ve got glowgetter™ inside tips for maintaining a healthy glow when you’re working out in the summer sun.

TIP #1 Make SPF your BFF
The “golden rule” of your skincare regimen for working out in the summer sun is to wear your SPF! Whether engaging in intense exercise or simply running an errand, applying sunscreen should always be the last step of your morning skincare routine at least 15 minutes before heading out the door. And if you’re sweating, an inevitable byproduct of the dog days of summer, it’s important to reapply at least every two hours.

Added bonus, we’ve recently released TWO NEW 100% mineral SPFs formulated with SheerGenius™ Technology featuring finely milled Zinc Oxide for sheer application even to the deepest of skin tones! The first is SheerGlow™ Even Tone Daily Defense Mineral Moisturizer SPF 30 for normal and combination skin types. And the second, ShineBlock™ Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30 a mattifying moisturizer for blemish-prone skin types.

That’s right, outdoor workouts without boundaries and sun protection with all the glow!

TIP #2 Wash your face

Who doesn’t love a dewy glow after a solid workout? But don’t hang on to your post-workout sweat for too long. As soon as you get home, it’s important to cleanse the surface of your skin of dirt, oil (and makeup if you’re one of those wink wink). We have four unique cleansing bars for every skin type and one for your body:

  1. Clear Skin Cleansing Bar - for oily, blemish-prone skin
  2. Even Tone Cleansing Bar - for anyone with dark marks and uneven skin tone
  3. Combination Skin Cleansing Bar - for dry, combination skin types and aging skin
  4. Resurfacing Vitamin C Cleansing Bar - a professional-strength cleanser for all skin types
  5. Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar - for anyone who struggles with body skin concerns and is looking to improve the look of dark marks, blemishes, rough skin texture, scarring or aging skin

TIP #3 Hydrate your skin from the inside out

When you sweat, it’s important to put water back into your body (and your skin). Make sure you’re staying hydrated by drinking water but go the extra mile for your skin.

In addition to moisturizing sunscreens, we also have moisturizers for every skin type for your post-outdoor summer skincare regimen. If your skin leans toward being more on the oily side, try our lightweight, non-pore-clogging HydraBalance Instant Moisture Infusion. And for dry skin types, try Mega Moisture Illuminating Night Cream.

Go for the GLOW while working out in the summer sun! Keep these glow-getting tips in mind when you’re engaging in physical activity in the sun.
