When the body is physically taxed such as during exercise, it sweats. It is the body's way of keeping the body cool so that body organs and systems can keep functioning as they should.
Ideally, the sweat finds an outlet through the skin and it evaporates which has a cooling effect. The problem arises when the sweat does not pass through the pores but remains trapped within. When sweat mixes with makeup and dirt, the pores get clogged. This allows bacteria to multiply fast which triggers inflammation within the follicle walls. This is how sweat pimples are formed.
Sweat pimples resemble tiny bumps. They often appear on the forehead given that sweat runs down from the head during exercise or heavy manual work. Apart from the forehead, they may also appear on the armpits which have a lot of sweat glands, the groin, and back on which sweat also falls from the head. The pimples may cause severe itching or a burning sensation and apart from sweat, they may become pus-filled lesions.
There are simple skin care steps that can help to get rid of sweat pimples on forehead:
While you may do the above, you may still not see the sweat pimples on forehead go away or they may go away only to reappear after a few weeks. The most important thing you can do is use skincare products that are made for active skin.
Until a while ago, the only choice you had was antibacterial soaps for cleaning your face to get rid of sweat pimples. That was until FRE Skincare products were unveiled. FRE is the very first skincare range formulated specifically to take care of active skin. Apart from preventing post-workout blemishes, FRE will also counter the impact of vigorous workouts and environmental factors that damage the skin and cause premature aging. FRE is based on Argania Active Complex, an innovative blend of organic Argan oil, water leaf extract and Argan stem cells.
The FRE range of products come neatly packaged in the 123FRE Set. The set has three products that are everything that you need to nourish and protect your skin:
123FRÉ is a comprehensive 3-step anti-aging treatment that creates healthy and resilient skin for women who love to work out. Its formulas and textures are specially suited to skin that sweats.
Step 1: "Protect Me" is an ultra-light SPF30 moisturizer. It is water-resistant, won't clog pores and won't sting eyes when you sweat (ophthalmologist tested).
Step 2: "Purify Me" is a hydrating facial cleanser that soothes, de-stresses, hydrates and rebalances skin pH, post-workout.
Step 3: "Revive Me" is a specialized anti-aging serum that regenerates collagen and skin elasticity.
All products are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and non-comedogenic.
I have to say that I was blown away by the quality of the products! There simply is no other way to put it. And what surprised me most was that I wasn't the only one to notice that my skin looked better; people complimented me for having this "certain glow".
I have a very sensitive skin (that easily gets irritated from sweating during workout and from the changing weather conditions here) and the Fré samples calmed and soothed the skin directly after the first use.
Order your 123FRE Set and see those sweat pimples become a thing of the past.
