Solution » Is sweating good for your skin? » Sweat sores » Sweat sores on neck

Sweat sores on neck are brought about by heavy sweating, especially in hot, humid weather. The most common cause of the problem is blocked sweat ducts. In children, the problem is that they have smaller ducts and some infants may have underdeveloped sweat ducts. When the sweat ducts are blocked, sweat cannot get out through the skin pores as it should. The sweat trapped in the ducts and in the skin pores mixes with the natural oil secreted by the skin and dirt. The grime then gets in little pockets which push through to the upper layer of the skin on which they appear as sweat sores. This can cause an itchy sensation and an uncomfortable, prickly sensation.

Sweat sores on neck and other sweaty areas

Sweat sores resemble tiny bumps that look like small pimples. They appear on areas of the body that sweat including the neck. The way to prevent sweat sores would be to avoid high temperatures or sweating a lot. In reality, this is difficult to do given that there isn't anything that you can do about the heat of summer and if you work out, you would have to stop doing so to avoid sweating.

Post-Workout Skincare

There are steps you can take to try and clear up sweat sores. They are;

  • Taking cool showers instead of hot baths when it is out or after a workout.
  • Keeping the neck dry by patting it dry during your workout.
  • Working out in loose-fitting clothes, ideally those made of absorbent fabric.
  • Cleaning your face and neck before and after working out so that sweat can get through the pores and not get trapped there.
  • Holding a cold compress to the neck when it is hot.
  • Applying natural aloe vera gel to soothe inflammation and a prickly sensation.
  • Applying Calamine lotion or hydrocortisone cream or Calamine lotion.
  • Avoiding skin products like soaps, creams, and lotions that have a fragrance to avoid aggravating the sores.

Skincare in Motion

While the above steps may alleviate your sweat sores, what they will do for your sweat sores is offer only temporary relief. This means that the sores will never completely go away or that they will keep recurring. What really works is using products that are made for skin that is active and often sweating. FRÉ Skincare is the first skincare regimen carefully crafted for women who work out.

FRÉ works its magic while you work out

The FRÉ brand was birthed from the dedication to finding a solution for skin care that served women who worked out often. The first step was bringing together a team of dermatologists and botanists to find out exactly what sweating skin needed.

It turned out that what it needed was the rich, nourishing properties of argan oil. The researchers found this out when their search led them to Morocco where they found the resilient argan tree thriving in the desert. They found that argan oil was full of potent oxidants, stem cells, essential fatty acids, and sterols. They found that this is just what active, sweating skin needed.

The group went on to develop Argania Active Complex ©, the formula that FRÉ products are used for. The products include:

  1. Protect Me, a facial moisturizer that will prevent sun damage with its SPF 30 and remain water-resistant for more than 60 minutes. It will not clog your pores or sting your eyes.
  2. Purify Me, a refreshing facial cleanser that sweeps up dead skin cells with a gentle exfoliator as well. It soothes skin after a tough workout and it will also soothe your skin and rebalance your skin's pH.
  3. Revive Me, a serum that gives skin that has been working out or outdoors an injection of much-needed moisture and vitamins. It also prompts the skin to regenerate collagen and to form new skin cells.

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.
