TheGluv Guide to Healthy Skin

Being an athlete is great for the overall wellness of your body, but being in the sun can take a toll on your skin! Taking care of your face and skin is just as important in terms of staying healthy. It's definitely fun to play in the sun and it's easy to forget about it's harmful and damaging effects. At TheGluv, we're here to help you stay healthy! Here are some great tips using products we love that will keep your skin protected and looking beautiful all season long, so you can look great and play great in your favorite softball uniform. 

FACE. After applying a thin layer of moisturizer, apply a nice even coat of  facial sunblock, like this one from Neutrogena, that's gentle enough for your face so it won't clog your pores and it's sweat proof too! It's recommended to apply sunblock about 30 minutes before going outside. 

These cleansing wipes  are really great! They come in a small pouch to keep in your bag, making it really convenient to freshen up and clean your face between games or at the end of practice. 

LIPS. Having burned and chapped lips can be uncomfortable and distracting on the field during a game, so slap on a lip balm with SPF. We love Maybelline's Baby Lips!

BODY. Sunblock in a spray bottle is convenient for athletes on the go, since it's easy  to apply and rub into the skin! If you're under the sun all day, don't forget to reapply! This one from Neutragena is great for athletes because its sweat proof and long lasting.
