Sweat and Makeup Will Lead To A Sleepy Breakout

The one thing I realized out of all my years of staying in shape in that there are certain things that my skin reacts too. The top two things are sweat and make-up.

One day after P.E. class back when I was in high school, I remember doing one of the most intense workouts I have ever done. The teacher decided to bring one of those adult workout videos and worked our butts to the core. I have never been covered in that much sweat before. Since we didn't have showers at my high school, I had tiny amounts of sweat still covering my body throughout the day, even though I used a towel and got rid of a large portion of them.

Once class was over and I off to my after school theater program. My teacher mentioned to me that my face was breaking out. I ran to the restroom and realized that every spot that was still covered in sweat made my face breakout. I grabbed the soap in the restroom and washed my face right there. My face looked a little better but I had to go to a shower when I got home. It was the first time realizing that my own sweat made me breakout.

Months later, I was doing my first web series. I was hired as a writer and actor on the show. It was the first time I ever had makeup put on my face. Right after filming the whole show for the entire night, I went home and went straight to sleep. I didn't have time to take my makeup off because I was totally exhausted.

The next day, I woke up with my face breaking out. It immediately washed my face and it took two days for my face to clear up.

When it comes to our skin we have to learn how to take care of it. If you ever start sweating or you have makeup and it's been on your face for quite some time, chances are that your face is going to break out at anytime. After your day is done, go to the bathroom and wash your face. Even if you have not physically seen yourself sweat, give yourself a good wash. You can even do it around the time you are taking a bath.

Right after you put soap in your face rinse it with cold water. If you use hot water, you are opening the pores. When your pores exposed to the air outside after it has been heated up for quite some time, you will get sick. But if you use cold water, you can walk outside without worrying about getting sick. Cold water keeps the pores closed inside.

Take care of your skin in order to look young and sexy.
