Lucy Hale always carries this budget beauty buy in her gym bag

To tackle those pesky post-sweat breakouts

BeautyCrew Beauty Editor / July 24 2019

Lucy Hale is a workout obsessive and as someone who’s been pretty candid about suffering with cystic acne, she’s also very serious about skin care (the Pretty Little Liars star’s skin care routine boasts a whopping 15 steps, four of which are just for cleansing). 

So, it’s no surprise that she has an airtight routine for dealing with those pesky post-workout breakouts.

In an interview with Allure, Lucy confessed that the key to stopping pimples from forming after exercising is to shower immediately after, however in emergencies she opts for face wipes – specifically, Neutrogena’s Makeup Remover Towelettes, because “they're just easy to take with you wherever you go.”

Not one to do things by halves though, Lucy also keeps travel-sized bottles of cult French pharmacy favourite Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O on hand when she’s on the go: “I really like micellar water, I keep little bottles of Bioderma micellar water in my car.”

Honestly, we wish we had Lucy’s commitment to clear skin, her routine is no joke!

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
