If you love to workout and are looking for a skincare line that will help keep your skin clear and fresh then look no farther. At 34 years old I still get the occasional breakouts and I attribute it to the amount I sweat. After speaking with my dermatologist she confirmed that the wrong products can clog your pores and irritate your skin. One way you can tell is if you break out along your hair line which would be caused from the residue of your shampoo and conditioner running down your face post sweat session. Her suggestion was to switch to Free & Clear Shampoo & Conditioner which has limited chemicals and irritants. So I did and it worked. However, I still needed an effective solution for the rest of my face.
Meet TULA: The perfect skincare line for those who love to workout. TULA, combines probiotics with carefully curated, clean, clinically-proven, high-quality ingredients like AHAs, antioxidants and retinols to ensure their products are safe and effective. Whoa, that was a mouthful. So what does it all mean?
TULA had me sold on their promise of being “clean and effective”. Dr. Raj, the creator of TULA, built this skincare line on the belief that the same ingredients that are good for your internal health are also good for your skin. Each TULA product nourishes your skin with a balanced meal of good-for-you ingredients, the same way a healthy diet nourishes your body.

Why is this all so important? Two reasons. When you apply product to your skin it is absorbed directly into your bloodstream, along with any harmful chemicals or toxins. To take it a step further Dr Raj a board certified, practicing gastroenterologist at New York University understands that good skin health should come from within and be maintained with healthy product. In 2014 she launched TULA which allowed her to apply her medical knowledge of probiotics, bacteria and yeasts that keep the digestive tract healthy, to create a patented probiotic technology for the skin.
If her medical degree from NYU and undergraduate degree from Harvard isn’t enough to convince you than just a take a look at her approach to life and to skincare. “Being an internist, teacher, author, wife and mother of two made me realize how important it is for women to achieve balance in life. With so many responsibilities we often neglect our own health, both inside and out. That’s why I co-founded TULA. I wanted to give women products that make them look and feel balanced and beautiful. I started with SKINCARE because glowing radiant youthful-looking skin is a sure indicator that you’re living a healthy lifestyle.”
When I was first approached about testing out their skincare line I have to admit I was hesitant. My skin goes into panic mode if I so much as smell products that contain harsh irritants or perfumes. After doing plenty of research and feeling more than comfortable with Dr. Raj’s approach I set out to test out their three step program. TULA‘s simple skincare regime which is clean and effective is something I definitely stand behind.

TULA’S 3 Step Skincare Routine for the Active Woman
Results: Their three step regime has allowed me to implement a simple and effective skincare routine while helping me achieve clear glowing skin. Here is how I apply TULA to my daily and active life.
All of my makeup and TULA skincare products are kept in this cute little TULA “Balance” makeup bag. A fun fact TULA actually means balance in sanskrit, and any brand that promotes balance is a brand that I will support. Post workout I start by cleansing my skin with their Probiotic Purifying Cleanser and I love it because it is gentle yet effective but more importantly because of it’s ingredients.
Step two is my favorite part because it gives me that good clean feeling that I want post workout. I’m a sucker for clean skin, I don’t want it to just look clean but I want each and every pore to feel clean. Anyone else with me? I’m sure most of you feel the same way ESPECIALLY if you sweat as much as I do! I’m not going to lie I loved Noxzema Pads but when I told my dermatologist I was using them she gasped. The harsh chemicals and scratchy pads are actually doing more than just surface damage to your skin. So I swapped them out for TULA’S Resurfacing Gel which I now apply all over my face with organic cotton rounds. Not only does it clean but it also hydrates, something my old drugstore brand was NOT doing. So what makes it so effective and great?
The final and most important step – moisturize! This hydrating cream is light and non-greasy which I absolutely love so it makes it light enough to wearing during the day. I feel like when my skin looks it’s best is when it is appropriately moisturized. TULA‘s ingredients in their moisturizer help reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve skin’s suppleness. So the result from the ingredients below – my skin looks and feels younger and I in turn look more awake and fresh faced.
If you love to workout and are looking for a skincare line that will help keep your skin clear, clean and well moisturized then look no farther. TULA, combines probiotics with carefully curated, clean, clinically-proven, high-quality ingredients like AHAs, antioxidants and retinols to ensure their products are safe and effective. TULA‘s approach to skincare, and to be honest life, is what lead me to test out their line. The results and easy and enjoyable routine are what keeps me coming back.
