Working out has a lot of skincare benefits for your skin.

"Exercise helps maintain healthy levels of the stress-related hormone cortisol, which could lead to breakouts or cause the collagen in your skin to break down, which can increase wrinkles and sagging." Dr. Timm Golueke

However, if you don't take care of your skin after you work out, the sweat and dirt can cause you to break out.

Therefore a good post-workout routine is important to maintain your after glow.
