Now that Singapore’s COVID-19 restrictions have eased considerably, many things have reopened, and life is coming very close to the way it used to be before the pandemic. With more restrictions lifted, many of us are beginning to head out again. It’s no surprise that our days have become packed with all the activities we once enjoyed, be it going to the gym, heading out for workout classes, or even after-work outings and night outs with friends.
As we dust off our old gym clothes and reopen our makeup drawers again, we may find ourselves in a flurry to get ready and resume our favourite activities. However, even as our old routines come back to life, it is important to maintain a good skincare routine to prevent skin issues, keep a healthy glow, and prevent the build-up of dirt.
Ideally, it’s best to avoid wearing make-up to the gym because our sweat, oil and the increase in temperature open up our pores, which can become blocked by make-up — but sometimes, we can’t help it when we’re in a time crunch to make it for a spin session.
Maintaining a good skincare routine helps keep us looking clean, rejuvenated, and with a healthy glow to boot. Read on for our post-workout skincare guide that you can easily incorporate for any indoor or outdoor fitness session!
A good skincare routine is vital in helping to keep our skin looking fresh. No matter how busy our days become, maintaining a good skincare routine can continue to be easy, safe, and effective. Here are our suggestions:
Washing your face at the start and end of the day is one of the most important steps in helping to ensure that your face and pores stay clean and ready to go.
With a small amount of gentle facial cleanser between two palms, gently massage the cleanser all over your face with gentle pressure, and rinse off at the end to ensure that all the cleanser is removed. Pat dry gently afterwards.
If you wear make-up, be sure to first remove any make-up with micellar water or cleansing oil before you cleanse your face.
Moisturising is key in keeping your skin hydrated and locking in all the products that you have applied to your face.
In the morning, it is good to use a light cream with SPF, and in the evening, a thicker night cream with regenerative properties can be used.
Using sunscreen is one of the important parts of anyone’s routine. Sun damage from UV rays can cause your skin to age prematurely as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. Make sure to leave your sunscreen on for 20 minutes before you leave the house!
Drinking enough water helps to keep our skin looking healthy and hydrated. Dehydration can leave the skin feeling dry and itchy and can also cause the skin to look dull and uneven. Hydrating well helps to lock in moisture beneath the skin! Beyond that, it also helps to keep us fresh, alert, and in our best shape.
One way to lock in your skincare routine can be through one of our latest medical technology treatments. The Aquajet Dermabrasion is an exclusively formulated treatment option that helps to simplify and solidify your daily skincare routine.
The skin is first cleansed thoroughly, with all debris and dead skin.
With Singapore slowly opening up in our post-COVID-19 world, we are all gearing up to get ready to go out again. In between the late nights out and gym sessions, it’s important to still remember to take care of our skin.
Maintaining a good skincare routine helps to keep us feeling our freshest and helps to ensure that our skin continues to look good and fresh all through the day. With Cambridge Therapeutics, we offer a wide range of treatment options to help you enhance your skincare routine. The Aquajet Dermabrasion facial, in particular, is a great way to help your skin continue to look rejuvenated and ready for the day.
