Not showering directly after exercising
Think about it- jumping of the treadmill, glowing with an endorphin buzz and the sheen of sweat. Instead of showing immediately most people wait to get home, but that 15+ minute wait can cause havoc with your skin. Perspiration creates a playground for bacteria to grow which can result in breakouts and rashes, and as your body cools the pores will close, trapping in the sweatily dislodged dead skin and bacteria. Showering directly after washes away all that micro-life and leaves you smelling fresh!
