Ideally, sweat from the sweat glands goes into the sweat ducts and leaves the body through the pores. When it evaporates on the skin, there is a cooling effect which is the main function of sweat. A problem arises when the sweat does not flow as it should. The problem may be blocked sweat glands or blocked pores. When this happens, the sweat that is trapped mixes with dirt and bacteria. The bacteria rapidly multiply which triggers inflammation. The result will be sweat spots.
Sweat spots on forehead are common because the forehead sweats a lot when the body is exerted. Sweat also touches the forehead when it runs down from the head. Although they are painless, it is important to pay attention to sweat spots. This is because they can spread and get all over the face, especially if you work out often or when it is hot outside.
There are some home treatments that are presented as natural cures for sweat spots. One is keeping your skin clean so that the pores are always clear and sweat can flow out through them, given that it is in clogged pores that trouble starts. If you work out often, it is important to clean your face before and right after a workout.
Another natural cure that is said to help is applying Aloe Vera gel. Applying it on the forehead can soothe the spots especially if they are red or itchy. Apple cider vinegar is also said to help by drying out the sweat spots so that they can fade away. Cool black tea is said to have the same effect.
While these DIY home remedies may help you see some results, they do not present a solution that is not permanent or that will take care of the problem completely. This means your forehead will not clear up completely and the problem will keep recurring.
The good news is that there is a permanent solution that will banish sweat sores on forehead once and for all. That solution was unearthed following a long and dedicated search by botanists and dermatologists who sought to understand what skin that sweats need so that they could provide it.
The team searched long and hard, a search that took them to a desert in South Morocco. It is here that they found a solution in the resilient argan tree that thrived in the desert. The much-sought solution lay in the leaf and kernel of the argan tree. Therein was a rich, potent, natural oil- argan oil. They found that argan had properties that were exactly what active skin needed, given all the sweating and pulling and stretching that is inevitable during a workout.
The team took the oil into the lab and used it to create the Argania Active Complex ©. The complex was used to create three ground-breaking products;
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 3: "Revive Me" is a specialized anti-aging serum that regenerates collagen and skin elasticity.

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.
The products come in the 123 FRÉ Set. Get yours today and see those sweat sores on forehead and post-workout skin problems banished forever.
