I have a question for my fellow ladies, mainly to settle my own curiosity. How many of you wear make-up when working out? If you do, do you wear a full face of make-up, or just a little? What are you reasons for doing so?
Why am I asking this? Well, as I said before I’m curious and I do also have a bit of an ulterior motive.
I attend the gym regularly and have to say I am a bit of a lazy moo when it comes to my appearance. Its usually timed so that I head out straight from the school run, so my preparations extend to making sure I’m not smelling and don’t resemble the appearance of being dragged through a hedge backwards.
I also only feel like I have had a proper work out if I’m sweating buckets, sorry grim I know, but that’s how it it. It’s because of this I have developed the attitude of why bother with Make-up at the Gym. I’m going to get sweaty, it will clog my pores making my me even more spotty than I already am and come off anyway?
What I have noticed at my gym anyway is that some ladies do Indeed work out fully made up and next to them I look like a hideous mess, my flaws are on display for all to see. So yes I have to admit that this does dent my self confidence a bit.
The answer to this would be just to wear make-up and all self confidence would be restored. A little bit of Mascara and concealer won’t hurt? The more sensible side of my brain though tells me to not be so darn stupid and not give in to my insecurities. I’m there to work out not look glamorous, right?
As you can see I’m in a bit of quandary with this one. Give in to those insecurities or carry on bare faced flaws on show for all to see. What are your thoughts on this? Are you are do or a don’t when it comes to Make-up and working out? What are you reasons for this?
