CONFESSION: I don’t always remove my makeup before working out. Terrible habit, I know. On weekdays, when I’m running from work to a fitness class, I occasionally don’t stop to wipe off my makeup. I choose classes based on favorite instructors, which sometimes means I only have 30 minutes to get from the office to the studio. I realize this isn’t healthy for my skin and can make me look like a diva, but it happens.

I’ve been loyal to bareMinerals Get Started Kits since high school because the products are easy to apply and feel weightless on my skin. The Original Foundation is specifically designed to promote clearer, healthier-looking skin. It’s formulated without parabens, binders, fillers, or synthetic chemicals. Some people say you can even sleep in bareMinerals. I’m not alone in terrible habits.
