My Pre-Gym Skincare Routine! | #SKINCARE

Yep, I have a skincare routine that I do right before I hit the gym. I feel like it’s a great time to apply quality skincare products because your pores are warm and open when you exercise. Watch this video to see my pre-gym skincare routine! Also, tell me if you do this too in the comments.

  • I see I’m pretty late to the party… like 2 yrs late lol but I do work out at 5am so typically no sun exposure to worry about. I just recently starting applying a ceramide moisturizer before I head to the gym. I wish I would have seen this sooner! Totally thought it was bad to apply skincare before a workout.

  • Susan, would you recommend doing a normal morning routine if you’re not working out until after noon?

  • Do you recommend exfoliating after a workout?

  • Can collagen absorbed through skin? Thank you

  • Thank you for this. I have been struggling with this part..I wasn't sure cause I work out at 4am . Did this today and I liked it. 👍 since this was 2 years ago. Anything change or new recommendations that work for you ?

  • And this is why I only watch doctors and dermatologists on YouTube and only take their advice when it comes to skincare because just “influencers” spread so much misinformation! For example in this video like she says she applies her skincare 3 times a day, first of all most people can’t afford that, also most people don’t have time for that and most importantly it’s a waste of time and product to do it! You do not NEED to do skincare routine before and after the gym, just do it after (if you’re working out in the morning). For the gym you should AVOID moisturizer because moisturizers helps to retain water in your skin basically, doesn’t let water evaporate easily and in the gym when we sweat we want all the sweat to come out and not to be clogged, we want it to evaporate because evaporation cools down our skin naturally. Another point is that you SHOULD wear sunscreen in the gym, if you spend an hour or 2 in the gym without a sunscreen that’s bad. Afterwords quickly wash it off, apply your serums, treatments, and reapply sunscreen. That’s it! Obviously if you’re working out at night you don’t need sunscreen then.

  • Been looking for this!!!

  • hi susan! what about your hair? do u wash it after workout? what is your hair routine?

  • My issue is that I have acne so I have serums for it in my skin care, so I want to have it on most of the time and I don’t want to re apply . So should I excesize In the morning then shower and skin care so I’m ready for the day but it’s hard for me to exercise in the morning since I’m busy. I don’t know what to do

  • Ugh I love algenist but I can’t afford during the rona times. 😭

  • I usually shower in the evening.. but I workout in the morning. Would you recommend just cleansing my face (I only use my cleanser at night because I have dry skin) with water after my workout and applying moisturizer and sunscreen? I workout indoors.. is it necessary to apply sunscreen before working out?I heard sweat causes acne if left on the skin..

  • Then what I’m i supposed to do? Do my skin care before I workout or after?

  • When gyms were open! Covid 2020

  • Thank you so much for this! I couldn’t find anything on what to do with workouts, and I workout almost everyday!

  • she's so gorgeous omg

  • Lately I haven’t been doing pre cleaning before workout and now I’m all clogged up with pores 🤦🏻‍♀️it’s so important

  • Does exercise trigger melasma

  • Hi Susan! Im from Mexico, I was wondering if you have a second alternative for the Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen because they don't sell it here at Sephora. Thank you! 😊

  • But it don’t make sense you’re gone sweat it out all fro you’re skin ?

  • There is no way I would put a serum before working out . They are too expensive.

  • What product would you recommend before and after swimming ? I swim
    Almost daily.

  • I usually workout at night and just use a cleansing oil then exercise
    But I'm often like should I even put anything on if I'm literally taking a shower in 30 mins

  • I always work out first thing in the morning before work, so I really just wake up and brush my teeth and head out the door and wait to do the full skincare ritual until after the gym. I am a heavy sweater and I have very sensitive skin and my skin gets very red at the gym. I've noticed if I put fresh products on right before I leave the house my skin freaks out once I start sweating (anyone else? aha). That said, if say I'm going to the gym hours after waking up or even mid-day I will do my full morning routine fresh out of bed and then just repeat it after the gym as well when I shower. And I will ALWAYS clean makeup off my face before a workout, going to the gym in my makeup is like asking for a breakout for me! I envy girls who can do that and not get acne from it, I sweat too damn much during my workouts (weightlifting, spin class, hot yoga).

  • Can we appreciate how thick and gorgeous her hair is??😍😍😍

  • Do you have a post workout skincare video??

  • I used to wash my face with a gentle gel cleanser then apply some essence and a very light moisturizer and lip balm, but I think maybe I’ll try and find a treatment to put on instead of the essence, and try not washing my face so much in the morning with cleansers.
