Under the running clothes
In my last post I mentioned what I wear to run in really cold weather, add or subtract a layer. I had a conversation with a friend and she asked if my face felt tight after running. The short answer is no. The long answer is, cold but not tight.
My skincare routine for running is simple. I put on Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream then their SPF 50 sunblock. This keeps my skin from feeling tight and I don’t need to go into details about the benefits of sunblock, do I? I use the sunblock on my hands and neck as well.
The rest of me gets a spray of the new Vaseline Spray & Go moisturizer. It’s light enough that my running tights don’t stick to me but moisturizing enough that my skin doesn’t feel horrid after running. I use Burt’s Bees lip balm with SPF.
The best part is the weather is getting warmer – less layers to worry about! Now if I could master the hills in my neighbourhood.
