Growing up my Mom had a great stance on beauty and skincare, put the product before the makeup. After all, there is no better look than simple, glowing skin, maybe with a little blush or mascara for the full effect. A bare face is my go-to look more often than ever working for a fitness brand. Some of my biggest meetings and introductions are when I am at the studio, completely make up free and about to get sweaty on a bike!
I am always looking for effective skincare products that can go head to head with my active lifestyle and desire for clear, no makeup needed skin. I've recently added Simple Skincare products to my gym bag, and I am loving how effective and affordable they are for that third cleansing of the day after a tough cycling class.
When it comes to the good and bad of my skincare habits, I tend to be very good about taking off any makeup before exercising so my pores are clean and can fully benefit from the skin detox a great workout provides. Simple Skincare Cleaning Facial Wipes have made this easier than ever. It is usually really hard to find wipes like this that are not made with alcohol or oil, but these are great and don't end up wrecking my sensitive skin. They also really wipe everything off, even waterproof mascara!
My bad skin habit is that I am really bad about standing around too long after class or going out following a workout without washing all of the sweat and bacteria off my face. I am really working on this and the Simple Skincare Foaming Cleanser is helping since it is already in a foamy lather out the gate and rinses clean, cutting down on wash time. Hardly the chore I've been making it out to be all this time!

Simple Skincare also sent me results from a survey they conducted with women in major US markets on their lifestyles and how it affects their skin. The results really interested me as an active city dweller who cares about her skin, especially these findings:
A Surprising Cleansing Calendar – More than a quarter (27%) report that the longest they’ve gone without washing their face is at least two days. Simple® makes implementing a cleansing regimen a cinch with gentle yet effective facial cleansers and wipes to remove grime and dirt that can clog pores and cause irritation.
Being Attentive to the Elements – Fifty-nine percent (59%) are not actively trying to protect skin from environmental elements such as the sun or wind. Women can apply Simple® Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15 to help them prevent damage from sunburn (even on cloudy days).
The Beauty Benefits of Working Out – One in two (50%) are unaware that exercise can influence their skin’s health. Exercise increases blood flow and helps flush cellular debris out of one’s system – contributing to the overall appearance of skin.
