While letting your hair lose, not wearing gloves while working out and dehydration are some things you should not do while at the gym, there are some additional gym habits to avoid for optimal skin care.
Touching your face
It’s better if you avoid touching your face during workouts, especially if you are doing weights or cardio machines as these machines do breed bacteria. As you don’t want to unnecessarily introduce bacteria to your skin, which can lead to new breakouts and spread existing ones, it’s better to keep your hands off your skin. The best way to do this is by maintaining a habit of washing your hands after your workout.
