What To Do When You Hit The Sweat Spot

Solution » Is sweating good for your skin? » Sweat spot

Its 6:30 a.m and you’re on your way to the gym. You get there and go on to surprise yourself by working out for over two hours. You can feel the fat melting away as the sweat pours from every pore in your body. You’re grinning from cheek to cheek because you are enjoying this healthy post-workout glow and know sweat is a good sign. Well, sweat is indeed a great sign but it can trigger breakouts or sweat spots if you don't maintain a proper skincare regimen.

They commonly occur on the face, forehead and on the neck and are usually stingy.

Don’t get us wrong…

Sweat is a healthy natural process that offers a lot of health benefits including;

  • Protecting your body from overheating
  • Increasing blood circulation
  • Boosting endorphins
  • Detoxifying your body
  • Unclogging your skin pores
  • Reducing risks of kidney stone and colds

However, sweat and high-impact workout also have a few potential disadvantages like:

  • Oxidative stress
  • Skin dehydration
  • Premature aging when combined with sun
  • Pimple, acne and blackheads
  • Loss of key body vitamins and minerals
  • Sweat Spots

One of the skin damage that sweat can trigger are sweat spots.

How You Get Sweat Spots

According to Healthline, the major cause of sweat spots is friction on the surface of the skin. Sweat spots develop as a result of body parts rubbing together especially in hot or humid temperatures. In other cases, sweat spots occur as a result of leaving sweat untended for long periods of time. This often results in the body’s eccrine glands becoming blocked and the aftermath is sweat spot.

How to Prevent Sweat Spots

If you want to prevent sweat spots from ever occurring, there are easy steps you can take. Follow these steps to prevent sweat spots:

  • Avoid wearing clothes that don’t allow your skin to breathe. If you know you’re going to be exposed to high temperatures, opt for fabrics like light weight cotton, linen and moisture wicking fabrics.
  • Don’t use thick skincare creams or lotions especially in warm weather or before a workout session
  • Change sweaty clothing and sheets right away
  • Stay hydrated
  • Avoid getting too hot by using an air conditioner during warm seasons
  • Cleanse your skin with a gentle exfoliator right after workout

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.
