After nearly a year of social distancing, we’ve all become pros at adapting our whole lives, especially our beauty routines, to staying home. If, like so many others, this moment has inspired you to enter the at-home workout game, then you’re probably already familiar with fitness pro Megan Roup, founder of beloved workout app The Sculpt Society. You may recognize Roup as the dancer-turned-trainer credited for keeping countless models and celebs in fighting shape, but now, she shares her killer upbeat workouts with anyone who’s got a screen and a call to sweat. Since the start of the pandemic, the app has grown by a whopping 700%, signaling that her approachable dance-cardio classes are not only effective but also fun. Honestly, what else could you ask for from a workout?
It’s no secret that fitness is one of the best outlets to support physical and emotional well-being, but breaking a daily sweat comes with its challenges. Aside from the disruption to our meticulously planned hair-washing schedules, you might be worried that the increased secretion might also do a number on your skin. According to Roup, that’s not really the case! “I think what you eat is incredibly important to skin health as well as exercise,” she tells us. As someone who grew up with relatively clear skin, Roup assures us that her shift to daily sweat sessions never resulted in copious breakouts. “Luckily, I always had pretty clear skin growing up. I would and still get the occasional pimple, but I never went through hormonal acne like so many kids do,” she says. Her major skin concerns these days? Dryness and melasma.
