We get it, not every girl wants to doll up. In fact many sporty girls would rather go without make-up because of all the hassle that's involved.


But a little protection for our skin can not only help us feel better, but also look better too! So here are six tips from artiste Jade Seah on how you can still both be sporty and look good at the same time.


Cycling on the roads can be a very dirty and dusty affair, and the prolonged sun exposure is also very harmful for our skin.


So what are some of the ways that we can take care of our face, skin and body, while continuing to enjoy the sport?

1. Wear extra clothing to protect your skin from the sun


Extra clothing can come in various forms, but the general idea is to minimise exposure of your skin to the sun. Strongly recommended are arm sleeves, while some additional ideas of what could be used are face masks or cloths to cover your face.


Not only does this protect you from the sun, but also from the grime, dust and dirt that comes with an activity like cycling.


2. Apply a lot of sunblock, and re-apply if possible


Remember to use sunblock before and during your cycle or sports activity! These can come either in oral form, or applied directly onto your skin, or both.


Remember to reapply sunblock every couple of hours too.


3. Remember to cleanse your face after sports and remember to hydrate your skin too


Washing and cleansing your face after your cycle or any other sporting activity is a must! This prevents clogged pores and outbreaks. For those who wish to take it a step further, you may consider using a clay mask to clear the gunk, before using a hydration mask as overexposure to the sun dries up your skin.

4. Use serums to lift and brighten the face


This tip is for the ladies, who worry about getting sun spot from overexposure to the sun. This can be applied everyday for those who do not have over sensitive skin.


5. Get creams that help prevent pimples and acne outbreaks


A cream like Stieva-A is great, particularly for girls an boys who struggle with breakouts.

6. Apply deodarant and / or perfume to smell fresh


Most of us think that we smell like a bed of roses, but unfortunately we don't so have an extra bottle of deodorant or perfume on hand will come in handy!
