Afternoon beauty fix: Because sporty doesn’t have to mean spotty
I’ve noticed an influx of blackheads since I started training for a half-marathon. Do I need stronger face wash to combat the sweat?
It’s not so much the sweat you need to be concerned about as it is harmful UV rays and clouds of invisible dirt and dust floating around outside. If you’ve ever wondered what “anti-oxidants” are for, your problem provides a case in point. Anti-oxidants, like those found in rosehip oil in Ole Henriksen Truth Serum ($48, olehenricksen.com), penetrate your skin, settle into pores, and inhibit them with “good things” instead of toxic things you’d pick up while running around. By filling your pores with protective anti-oxidants, you’ll give your skin endurance against damage like regular exercise does for your heart.
