There’s nothing wrong with choosing to wear makeup at the gym. I used to. When my skin was covered in acne scars from my teenage years I never left the house with at least a little light coverage, not just out of vanity but because it looked like I had chicken pox.
And I didn’t want everyone to think I was infecting them.
Okay. Yes … and vanity.
Still, it’s a bit harsh of Khloe Kardashian to suggest that anyone who doesn’t wear makeup while they workout is ‘a slob’. No, I haven’t taken her comment out of context. I’m a Khloe fan as well. She is my favourite Kardashian but she did tell Shape magazine, ‘Just because you are going to work out, you don’t have to look like a slob.’
But I love looking like a slob. Being able to leave the house sans makeup, totally disheveled, to get sweaty during a workout is one of my favourite things to do because there was a time when the thought was terrifying to me. I feel like a more evolved person because I can leave the house looking like crap and not have a meltdown when I bump into someone I know.
This is me, warts and all.
IN DEFENSE OF SLOBS!
Khloe Kardashian spoke about her recent weight loss on Live with Kelly and Michael. Article continues after this video.
I’m not a Kardashian and in particular I’m not Khloe Kardashian who is often on the receiving end of pretty nasty treatment at the hands of the judgmental who call her “fat” and “ugly” in response to her appearance.
That’s probably why she has to get all dressed up when she goes to the gym.
That’s why she’s embraced it and wears cute outfits, makeup and earrings.
That’s why she takes all of those selfies.
There is no should or shouldn’t when it comes to getting all dressed up to work out. There isn’t any right or wrong. It’s all about doing what makes you happy, what makes you comfortable, what makes you able to enjoy your workout.
