Sweating is evidence of a good workout. Sweating is a healthy and necessary process that is globally good to skin. However, sweat can result to rashes which first occur as sweat blisters. They commonly occur on the face, forehead and on the neck and are usually stingy.
When a person experiences blisters after working out, they may have to stop working out for some time until the blisters are healed. It is common for people to experience blisters especially during hot summers. The condition is never so serious, but only uncomfortable due to the itchy feeling. For individuals who are sensitive about their appearance, sweat blisters are definitely a cause for concern.
There are two types of blisters that commonly occur. The first one occurs when you run during a sunny day without applying enough sunscreen on your skin. The sunburn which occurs, then damages the skin causing the sweat pores to clog and resulting in little blisters from the sweaty fluid. The blisters become itchy just the same way sunburn is itchy. It is always advisable to keep these kinds of blisters clean and dry by cleaning using soap and water immediately after workout. An antibacterial ointment will also work perfectly in preventing any infections from arising.
The second type of sweat blister is usually a certain kind of non-allergic hive reaction resulting from the skin getting extra hot. It often occurs on individuals with skins that cannot naturally cool to avoid getting too hot. One can prevent the condition by cooling themselves through fluid intake during workout or pouring cool water on themselves to cool their skin.
There are various practical ways to prevent these unattractive sweat blisters from occurring, and they are as follows:-
You can prevent sweat blisters from occurring by cleaning your face and neck before and immediately after your workout. You can also shower and cleanse after your workout, in order to prevent any impurities from being reabsorbed into the skin. When cleaning, it is always important to focus on areas of your body where sweating happens a lot. You can use a natural bristle brush to exfoliate the dead skin and allow the pores to breath.
You can also drink a lot of water during your workout, because it will not only prevent sweat blisters, but also add minerals, proteins and acids to allow sweat and maintain the skin’s pH balance.
It is important to apply sunscreen before going outdoors on a workout. Consider using the FRÉ Protect Me defense facial moisturizer which has SPF 30. It not only offers you protection against harmful UV rays and sunburn, but it also hydrates the skin. It doesn’t clog the sweat pores or sting the eyes and the best thing about is that it protects the skin from the harmful effects of sweating and other environmental conditions that can be harmful to the skin.
Go further and protect your skin by wearing moisture-wicking clothing when working out, to help wick the moisture away from the skin and reduce any chaffing, sweat blistering or discomfort from occurring.
