With the winter weather almost coming to an end, many of us are looking forward to swopping our boots out for flip-flops and packing our warm coats away for another year. Hints of warmer weather remind us that we need to get our bodies swimsuit ready, and visits to the gym become imminent for many of us. An increase in exercise often comes hand-in-hand with disruptions to the skin one often does not expect. DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care recommends thinking about skin care in your gym bag by keeping the following products in your bag ensuring you look your best in and out of the gym.


Skin care products to remember to take with you to the gym


Removing your make-up is a must before commencing with your gym routine. The DermaFix Gentle Cleansing Gel offers dual functionality by removing eye make-up and foundation without stripping the skin, making this cleanser the perfect fit for your gym bag.
Skin hydration is one of the most important factors involved in preserving the integrity of the stratum corneum. Whilst at the gym, we often are exposed to an air-conditioned environment which greatly contributes to skin hydration issues. DermaFix Dermal Repair is an exclusive multi-vitamin facial treatment that can be applied onto the skin before exercising, offering a barrier of protection against dehydration. It contains an essential amount of Vitamin C, just the right concentration of Vitamin A and E, as well as beneficial minerals and extra pure essential oils helping to maintain skin barrier integrity and prevent trans-epidermal water loss.


It is inevitable that sweating occurs during a rigorous gym routine and something often overlook when thinking about the skin care in your gym bag. With sweat, comes the transference of bacteria as one moves from machine to machine. This can lead to an increase in breakouts on the face, back and arms, and can result in the occurrence of inflamed lesions. Incorporating MD Prescriptives Mandelic Toner after an exercise session helps to combat acne-causing bacteria and offers antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits. This 3-in-1 multi-purpose clarifying toner balances the pH levels of the skin, helping to reduce excess oil production for a clear and even complexion. It refines the surface of the skin and penetrates deep into pores to remove pore-clogging dead skin cells.


For the client who prefers an outdoor exercise regime, exposure to the sun during this time is something that is not often considered. Incorporating the DermaFix Ferulic + C + E provides cellular protection against environmental damage, offering up to 72 hours of antioxidant protection. This scientific formulation provides the skin with a high dose of Vitamin C, long reputed as being a superior antioxidant, helping to prevent UV-induced hyperpigmentation and serves as a potent barrier against the damaging effects of UV-radiation. Ensure your skin is protected whilst you are in the process of getting your body summer ready with the inclusion of DermaFix DermaShield SPF 50, offering essential high UVA/UVB protection in a water-resistant base.


After exercise we often appear flushed, with red cheeks giving away our strenuous workout.
