Understanding your skin both during and post-workout with our Cryo Range.

Exercising whilst wearing make-up, to some, isn’t really a conscious choice – in this day and age, most of us barely manage to squeeze some efficient workouts in-between intense workdays. From office to the gym, from business trips to running sessions, one thing for sure is that it's quite hard to sport a clean, fresh face before it’s time to power through it all. Skin and exercising go together in a powerful cleansing process which can be directly affected by a dolled up look, but there's another information which remains unknown to many and is equally important: the chemical processes that keep our bodies alive also play a big role when it comes to maintaining a healthy, dewy skin. Here we break down the whole process.

A CLEANSE FROM WITHIN.

A great workout session not only benefits your body’s endurance and wellbeing, but also promotes a serious skin cleanse. Through exercising, we promote circulation and increase the size of our blood vessels – instantly increasing the warmth through our body. In order to cool ourselves down, we start sweating. That’s when your skin reaches its optimal cleansing performance: this sweat is nothing but a mix of impurities and natural oils.

LET IT BREATHE.

Now picture what your skin goes through the whole day: soaps, serums, moisturiser, foundation, concealer… You may not use all of those products in your daily beauty routine, but your face is definitely exposed to environmental and cosmetic components which can be eliminated by sweat and a good make-up remover. Exercising with a physical barrier on top of your pores increases the chances of getting heat rashes or even developing small itchy bumps known as miliaria. In order to avoid irritation, try to be on the safe side and clean your skin accordingly before and after a workout. The equipment you work with, such as rubber mats, are definitely not the cleanest surfaces you may encounter so it is important to cleanse your skin thoroughly to remove the pollutants that your skin has come into contact with whilst working out.

THE SUGAR RUSH EVERY SKIN LIVES FOR.

Our body not only promotes a great natural cleanse, but it also orchestrates a chemical process that directly links to that amazing energy boost we experience after working out. ATP (adenosine tri phosphate) is a molecule made in every cell of our body which, when broken, generates an immense amount of energy. 111SKIN’s Cryo ATP Sports Booster emulates that feeling, but on the go: Riboxyl™ is, pure and simple, sugar. By feeding it to your skin, your cell’s energy stores get fully recovered and power its natural regenerative process.

always on the go. Be ready and benefit from the science we got inspired from.
