After finishing a long, hard workout, the first thing you want to do lay down and take a nap, am I right? After all, you deserve it for how hard you just worked your body. Plus, your body is going to need the rest. Well, unfortunately there are a few things you have to do before you can put your feet up and take a load off. From now on, after exercising, always make sure you’re doing these things, especially for hygiene’s and health’s sake.

1. Change Your Clothes Right Away

I know it’s tempting to stay in those really comfy clothes all day long after tiring yourself out from a workout, but it’s really not good hygienically. With all the sweat and moisture you produced during your workout, it’s a breeding ground for bacteriaΒ whichΒ can cause acne as well as yeast infections. Also, no one wants to be around someone that smells like sweat, so do yourself and others a favor and put on some fresh, clean clothes. If you can, take a shower, if not some clean clothes will do until you can shower.
