Wash Up After Sweating
If you want to prevent an acne breakout, make sure you clean up after sweating. Sweat will clog pores, so wash it off. Take a warm shower for around fifteen minutes if you have been sweating a good sweat.
Gently washing your face is the way to go. Don’t scrub! Putting too much pressure on your face when you wash can take off layers of the skin and leave it vulnerable to oil and breakouts. Putting too much pressure on your skin when you wash your face can injure the sensitive skin you are trying to keep clean and can leave it more damaged than anything else. You don’t want to have scrubbing scars do you? You need to have a firm but gentle touch when you wash your face. This sounds harder than it actually is.
Here is a hint: if you have a bright red face after you finish your skin care routine, your routine is too harsh. The goal is to have a flush, but that flush should not be beet red. Go for the glow, not the stoplight effect.
Aloe Vera is also a very good way to treat this. It helps to fight infections that sometimes occur within the pimple itself or on the skin. It also helps to calm and reduce pimples and scars which often occur when someone is having an outbreak.
