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