Go hard or just…have a go? You don’t have to run yourself ragged to enjoy a good work out. Sweat is strictly optional. Fitness flexing not for you? Just find what feels good. And if you follow these tips while you’re getting tip-top, your skin will thank you too.
SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR YOUR WORKOUT
Exercise is great for the body and mind, but activity can expose your skin to blemish-causing bacteria, which can lead to breakouts. Blemish-prone skin tends to overheat and perspire a little more than other skin types, leading it to produce oil that can build up on the surface over time. But don’t sweat it: we’ve got all the tips you need to keep skin happy through the workout and beyond.
• Before exercise, remove make-up with our Camomile Cleansing Butter. Sweep this gentle balm over skin and gently buff away, leaving nothing behind that could plug your pores.
• Avoid post-workout panda eyes by cleansing away any lingering eye make-up with our Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover.
• Use a refreshing toner like our Vitamin E Hydrating Toner. Your skin needs to be fresh, clean and free to breathe.
Different workouts put different parts of your body to the test: your skin responds in unique ways, too. We’ve designed a couple of routines to combat the fresh challenges you face, however you like to exercise. Remember, many of our products come in mini sizes, so it’s easy to pop a complete kit into your gym bag.
SKINCARE FOR YOGA BUNNIES

STEP 2: SOOTHE
Stay in tune with the senses. Lather up with the Almond Milk & Honey Soothing & Caring Shower Cream and wash those worries away.
SKINCARE FOR A POST-CARDIO WORKOUT
If you’ve been working up a sweat, a good cleanse will help ease the impact of intense activity. The change in conditions can be a bit of a shock to the skin, especially for those on the more sensitive side. Whatever your skin type, it’s important to cleanse face and body promptly to give it a good chance to recover. Here’s a pattern that works for us…
SKINCARE FOR A POST-SWIM SESSION
Taking a dip can exercise every muscle in the body, but the chlorine can be a little tough on blemish-prone skin. If that’s you, don’t hang up your flippers just yet: you can help minimise the impact of your environment with a good kit in your swim bag, and a gently restorative routine.
STEP 1: REPLENISH
Chlorine-soaked hair is often dry and tangled. Give it some moisture with the Fuji Green Tea™ Refreshingly Hydrating Conditioner enriched with hydrating honey.
