What's In My Gym Bag with AcneFree

One of my biggest tips to keeping your skin clear is to wash your face right after a workout, before you head home, even if you can't take a full shower. Especially if you're running errands after, don't let the sweat from a workout sit on your skin longer than you have to.
I've been living in California for almost two weeks, and it has been an adjustment on so many different levels. The heat being the first thing that's obviously different, and my skin hasn't been having the best time. With day-to-day sweat, working out at the gym, or going on hikes, my skin hasn't been feeling like itself, so I've been doing my best to take care of it with products from AcneFree.
In the summer heat, acne can unfortunately pop up in unwanted places, and these products are all gentle enough to be used on your chest, back, or anywhere else you're experiencing a breakout.
One of the biggest benefits of working as a freelancer and blogger is that I get to make my own schedule, so I can go to the gym at pretty much any time of day. Below are a few essentials that are always in my backpack when I'm headed to the gym:
- Water bottle
- Extra Socks
- Extra Hair ties
- AcneFree products
- Granola bar
I picked up the Sensitive Kit and Sulfur Mask at my local Walgreens, but these are also available at Amazon and Walmart, so you can pick them up easily and at a great price point.
AcneFree’s Therapeutic Sulfur Mask is a deep penetrating pore therapy to help soothe acne-inflamed skin and absorb excess oil. The therapeutic formula features sulfur, a natural and effective acne treatment ingredient. Vitamin C, copper, zinc and meadowsweet help to minimize the appearance of pores, and refine skin tone and texture.
It initially applies to your skin white, but will turn blue as you massage your skin. After your face is blue, let it sit for approximately 10 minutes before washing it off. I like using this twice per week to keep my skin clear of any pesky spots.
This highly effective three-step system, formulated for sensitive skin, is gentle on skin yet tough on acne. Consistent use controls new breakouts, reduces redness and eliminates blackheads around the clock. AcneFree is the only brand that makes acne-clearing systems formulated with Advanced Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide. Micro-sized benzoyl peroxide is designed to work faster and penetrate deeper into pores – without the harshness and over-drying that can occur with traditional benzoyl peroxide.
Especially if you're heading on a vacation or weekend getaway, this three-step kit is perfect to bring along with you!
First step is the Corrective Acne Cleanser, which gently deep-cleans to remove pore-clogging oil and impurities. This sulfate-free cleanser fights acne with Salicylic Acid (1.5%) while botanical extracts soothe the skin. The biggest thing I love about this line is how great everything smells, not harsh at all and super light for summer.
Second step is the Alcohol-Free Acne Toner, that helps to balance skin tone and remove dead skin cells with natural fruit extracts. This calming and anti-redness formula is gentle enough for sensitive skin. This tingles slightly when you apply it, and doesn't burn like other toners can.
Last, but not least is the Hydrating Acne Repair Lotion + Spot Treatment with Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide offers 24 hour continuous clearing when used twice a day. Micro-sized acne medicine benzoyl peroxide (3%) is easily absorbed into pores to eliminate acne bacteria and provide continuous breakout control. Massaging this into my skin as a last step is the perfect finish to my routine, it feels light and smooth on my skin without feeling greasy or oily.
