Cetaphil Ultra Protect

This new cleansing bar should be in any athlete’s workout bag

Anyone with an active lifestyle loves having the post-workout glow, and this cleansing bar Ultra-Protects that glow.

We’ve all heard of the “post-workout glow.” And anyone who works out regularly can tell you it’s a real thing. Workouts can provide you with more than the endorphin rush and the muscle definition. More than that, it can make your skin look healthier, too.

The skin is our largest organ, so your lifestyle choices will ultimately affect how you look on the outside too. That’s why working out often gives people a healthy glow.

When you get your heart rate pumping, you improve your blood circulation, bringing more nutrients to the skin, as dermatologist Dr. Marisa Garshick explains to Insider. Because of this, workouts can keep the skin looking healthy and young. In addition to this, breaking a sweat is a great way to release the toxins in your body.

However, an active lifestyle can also have downsides for your skin.

Another dermatologist, Dr. Edidiong Kaminska, MD, explains that sweating can clog your pores, cause breakouts, or trigger other skin issues in your body. This is especially true if you work out wearing makeup or other skin products.

It’s a double-edged sword. But it doesn’t mean you should skip your workout. Rather, it simply means that you need to check your workout routine. And we’re not just talking about what you do during your workout—we mean everything you do before and after, too.

Always Be Ultra-Protected

After you cool down and stretch your muscles post-workout, you probably feel yourself marinating in your sweat. It’s a great feeling, but dermatologists are quick to remind those with active lifestyles that cleansing after a workout is incredibly important for the skin.

With this, it’s all about finding the right cleanser. And while you may think this is easy—any product can make you feel clean—there is more than what meets the eye when you need to protect your skin.

Dr. Kaminska shares that you need to find one that can effectively penetrate the pores for a deep clean and prevent bacteria buildup from a wide variety of germs. But along with this, it also has to be gentle enough so as not to irritate or scrape the skin dry while providing intense moisturization.

This is precisely where the new Cetaphil Ultra Protect Antimicrobial Cleansing Bar comes in.
