First of all, drink plenty of water to keep the body properly hydrated, since this is a beneficial action throughout the body.

Then know that it is necessary to invest in a good primer or eye cream that is applied in this region in order to give a luscious effect on the skin.

Only in the case of oily skin, restrict the use of the cosmetic only to the region below the eyes, and then apply the concealer after the foundation. Never, under any circumstances, apply powder to this area of the face (keep away from the baking technique for under the eyes), as they accentuate the lines of expression and may even contribute to the appearance of possible bags under the eyes.

Physical activities and hair care

Is it necessary to wash my hair after exercising?

The answer to that is yes! The excess of sweat produced when we exercise can damage the hair strands and the scalp. It is necessary to wash the hair to restore and balance its and the scalp pH.

A lot of women think that washing the hair every day is not good, maybe because some hairdressers recommend to wash it every other day, but actually washing the hair every day does not harm it as long as the proper products are used and the washing is done correctly. Better to wash than to leave hair dirty and sweaty.

Pre and during exercise hair care

Before you start your physical practice, apply a leave-in cream mixed with a few drops of vegetable oil, this will protect the hair and minimize the action of sweat on it.

The vegetable oil has an antioxidant action that guarantees double protection to the hair strands, causing them to fight free radicals and dryness caused by sweat.

During the exercise, care should be focused on how to fasten the locks. It is very important to attach the hair at the time of practice so that, in addition to not getting messy, it also protects the hair from being in contact with the sweat that accumulates in the nape, back, and arms.

Hairstyle: The most indicated hairstyles are those that are on the top of the head so that the hair do not keep in contact with the sweat. A good choice an old-fashioned ponytail, bun, or a braid.
It is very important to use a hair tie that is preferably lined with fabric to prevent the hair strands from breaking and to prevent them from falling on your face.

After exercise care

After the training, the correct thing is to do the washing of the hair as fast as possible.  The ideal is to do the washing with a transparent shampoo to remove the sweat well and then use a conditioner or a quick-acting moisturizing ampoule.

It is also important not to forget the care after the washing. If possible, it is always good to let the hair dry in the natural, but if you prefer to use the dryer, it is essential to use it with the warm jet away from the strands and apply a thermal protector before, to protect the hair from the heat.
