In other cases, acne can persist despite your best efforts, and it may require further treatment such as prescribed medications or laser surgery.
If you are experiencing frustrating or painful symptoms, here are a few tips to help you make the best of your situation and help keep you feeling at ease when trying to get relief:
1. Shower after a workout
Baking is just like an intense workout in the kitchen. When we bake, our kneading and stirring, as well as standing for long periods, can cause us to sweat.
As a result of this, very important to shower at the end of every session to remove all traces of unwanted residue that may otherwise become trapped in your pores and lead to skin issues.
Ensure you wash your baking clothes after each baking session because leftover ingredients can react negatively with the fabric and may cause stains in your spare time.
Use gentle exfoliating scrubs from time to time to remove any extra dirt, oils, or whatever else is still clinging onto your skin.
By removing dead skin cells and dirt before they have a chance to clog your pores, you can help prevent acne breakouts and make your skin feel smoother and more moisturized.
3. Wear loose-fitting clothing
Your workout habits could irritate your skin. For example, good clothing can prevent the passage of unwanted debris and the sweat that follows it. This would potentially reduce friction between the sweat trapped in your cell and your epidermis, thus alleviating stress on your pores.
Without a shirt against sweaty gym machines or dirty home fitness equipment, working out can raise safety concerns.
When it comes to your workout attire, it’s important to look for clothing that feels loose and fits properly while still allowing your skin to breathe and sweat to wick away from the body.
4. Try tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is an important oil derived from the leaves of a fragrant tea tree plant native to Australia. It has been used traditionally by Australians and Aborigines alike for hundreds of years to treat various skin conditions.
Still, today you can find products containing tea tree oil in a lot more than just topical health products like creams and salves.
You’ll often find it inside shampoos, soaps, conditioners, and virtually any popular cosmetic that is intended for use on the human body as well throughout grocery stores.
5. Keep hair off your back
Long hair can cause you to get acne on the back region of your scalp if you do not wash your hair often. This is because your long hair will start to collect excess oil and dirt resulting in clogged pores and pimples.
Hair products such as conditioners and shut (as well as any moisture) can also clog pores. So, it is important to know what its ingredients are in your products and avoid those that may lead to acne/pimples on the back of your head.
