Sweat is the body’s natural method of cooling and detoxifying, but if left to sit on the skin, bacteria forms and breakouts begin. If you’re in a time crunch and can’t shower immediately after your workout, wipe off sweat once you’re finished with a body wipe to help prevent blemishes and skin infections. Change out of your wet gym clothes as soon as possible, too. Showering with a pH balancing body wash like Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash is a great way to cleanse without stripping.
