Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: Do you wear makeup while running? You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
There are two main reasons I don’t wear makeup when I run..
1.) I actually don’t wear a lot of makeup “in real life” so I never think to put any on for a run
2.) I have pretty sensitive skin so makeup + sweat = disaster for my pores. It’s just best that I don’t wear it at all.
That being said, there are two basic things I put on my face for all of my outdoor runs:
This is an absolute must for all outdoor runs, especially in the summer. I’ll admit that sometimes I forget to put it on in the Winter but I’m working on getting better about that. I’m all about minimizing the amount of sun damage to my face as much as possible.
My lips tend to get very dry when I run outdoors so I always apply chapstick before I leave the house and I usually run with it as well. There’s nothing worse than chapped lips, especially in the Winter!
