Makeup and fitness don’t always have the best of relationships. After all, you have trouble keeping makeup in place on a sizzling summer day. Now imagine doubling the sweat and adding a few burpees. It’s not pretty. But still , day after day, women workout while donning a face full of foundation. This is just one of the common workout beauty mistakes people seem to make.
Whether it’s wearing a full face of makeup to Zumba class or spraying a too-strong perfume in the locker room, beauty faux pas collide with fitness more often than you think. For instance, I once ruined a manicure while changing a bike tire. My hand got too close to the deflating tube, and the escaping air straight-up blew the paint off my thumbnail.

After a few makeup mishaps, most people have learned how to properly prep their face for the gym. But perfecting the post-workout beauty routine is equally important. While it can be tempting to just join your friends for brunch in your sweat-drenched duds, your complexion will thank you for taking a few extra minutes to freshen up. So for anyone who wants to look like less of a mess after working out, here are a few common post-workout beauty mistakes and how to fix them.
