Sweating is a very natural function of the body. If you didn't sweat during heavy physical exertion, your body might overheat which could hinder normal organ function. However, sweat can become a problem when it causes skin problems. Sweat-induced problems include sweat pimples, rashes, and sweat blisters on forehead.
According to Dr. Lewis G. Maharam or 'Running Doc', an extensively credentialed sports health expert, there are two types of sweat blisters. The most common are those that form after working out outdoors without applying a sunscreen that offers adequate protection from the sun. The blisters form when sweat clog the pores and pool into blisters. Sunburn makes the problem worse because it makes the blisters itchy. The second type of sweat blisters is a kind of hive reaction which is caused by the skin getting really hot.
According to the Running Doc, the key in avoiding sweat blisters and other types of sweat-induced skin problems is keeping the skin clean and pores clear. This is both before and after exercise. When the skin is clean and the pores are not clogged, then the sweat will flow out of the skin rather than remain in the pores and mix with dirt which causes blemishes.
Also important is the quality of products that you use to take care of your skin. Products that only work on the surface but not deep down in the pores will not work to prevent sweat blisters. Neither will they help to clear them up.
Even if it is causing you problems, you can love your sweat if use products that take care of your skin as you work out to take care of your body. The brand that is all about skincare in motion is FRE Skincare. It is the first brand created to take care of the facial skin of active women.
FRE products mitigate the damage on facial skin as well as premature aging caused by high-impact or vigorous exercise. It also reverses and protects against the damage caused by environmental factors, especially the sun. This includes sweat blisters and other skin problems occasioned by sweat.
FRE products are clinically proven to restore and protect skin that is stressed from an active life. The products which have a revolutionary formula and texture were formulated based on the research findings of a team of botanical and dermatological experts. Their research led them to a plant that had the power to counter the effects of frequent, intense exercise and sweat on the face.
This miracle plant is argania spinosa, more commonly known as argan. This tree grows only in Southern Morocco deserts. Apart from restoring stressed skin, argan has been found to help prevent heart disease, cancer and rheumatism. Its kernel and leaf are that powerful. The researchers took these findings and came up with a unique formula they called Argania Active Complex.
