I took a lot of surveys and I ended up getting subscriptions to magazines. I set health nutrition ones geared toward my mom’s needs. I picked the fitness ones because 1. the ones I would have gotten weren’t there or 2. the ones for travel took a lot more survey taking and I just didn’t have time for that.
One of the magazines that just came to me is Shape. I’m just going through it when I should probably be doing something else but when I came to the section on Beauty Myths Busted the one that stood out to me is the one that had ‘you can’t wear makeup at the gym.’ I like how they responded with the fact that those words are a myth.
The author pointed out the fact that “working out is all about feeling healthy and beautiful in your own skin…” She also says that “wearing a bit of makeup during your sweat session makes perfect sense…” (I cannot find a name associated with this section so I cannot give the author’s name for the quote.)
So, ladies, if you want to wear makeup don’t let anybody make you feel guilty for doing it.
I don’t particularly like wearing makeup but I do know the one time I took on a gym membership to curb my two hour drive home from work that if I wore makeup to work I wasn’t going to try to wash it off before getting started with my workout. Since I rarely wore makeup I probably didn’t do workout sessions with makeup on, but that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t have if I had worn any in the first place.
Look beautiful. Have fun. And as always…
