Waking up at the crack of dawn and hauling our asses to the gym is an everyday struggle, so there’s really no time to worry about perfecting your eyeliner before sweating most of your face off anyway. Celebrities like Demi Lovato, Jessica Alba, and Bella Thorne likely know this problem firsthand, which is why they frequently hit the weights without an ounce of makeup, and encourage their followers to do the same.
Of course, it’s everyone’s prerogative to wear makeup and if you want to glam yourself up before a workout, more power to you. But when you’re working out every muscle in your body and building your strength like never before, it’s perfectly fine if your radiant glow comes from your accelerated heart beat and the sweat dripping off your face. To inspire your own no-makeup gym selfie, we collected 13 post and mid-workout shots from stars like Ashley Graham and Adriana Lima. See the makeup-free and minimal-makeup pictures, ahead.

Nothing cooler than a conspicuous locker room selfie 🙄 but I needed to document the exact shade of holy-fuck-magenta my face turns after getting my ass kicked at @tracyandersonmethod. I'm like a tomato with a human torso that is slowly but surely recovering from popping out a ten pound kiwi. 🤔 🍅🥝👹
