DOES WORKING OUT CAUSE ACNE?


You want to stay healthy, fit and beautiful, right? So you hit the gym a few times a week to keep in shape. Buy you may be noticing that as you start going to the gym (or maintaining your regimen  you are breaking out on your face, chest, neck and back! 

While this is common among men and women of all ages, it is very disappointing, and we know that... this blog post is written to help you find ways to fight unnecessary acne that likes to pop up when you are working out!

Step 1: SHOWER AS SOON AS YOU CAN AFTER A WORKOUT
Even 5 minutes after a workout is enough time for your pores to get clogged and cause acne. It is recommended not even to wait until you get home to shower, instead utilize the great showers that your gym offers... best of all, you can save time and money on your water bill :)
This is an important step because the sooner you wash away the dirt and bacteria that will clog your pores, the less likely you will get acne.



Step 2: USE A SALT SCRUB TO CLEANSE YOUR SKIN
We recommend using a salt scrub on your skin after a workout because it is tough enough to get rid of all the acne causing oils and bacteria, but still gentle enough to be used daily. Salt scrub, like TEI Spa's Sea Salt Scrub ($20. http://teispa.com/sea-salt-scrub.html) has tons of benefits:

Benefits of Sea Salt Scrub in SkinCare:
  • Sea salt scrubs are able to help remove dry, dead skin and toxins from the body, which is often the main cause of acne
  • Sea salt scrubs are excellent at stimulating the proper flow of blood in the body
  • Sea salt scrubs also give the skin a natural and healthy glow that come from deep cleansing
  • Sea salt scrubs are excellent for helping to sooth tired and aching muscles. Natural stimulants in the salt relax the muscles and sooth the body


Step 3: KILL BACTERIA ON THE SKIN

The best way to kill bacteria on the skin is to use the secrets that facialists and estheticans use in treatment rooms... Ozone High Frequency. 

High frequency treatments are used to stimulate, sanitize and heal the skin. Used for years, this type of treatment is designed to provide high frequency currents that generate warmth in the skin and stimulate nerve endings, in turn increasing blood circulation, nourishing the skin and improving product penetration within the skin. By increasing skin metabolism, high frequency ozone facials encourage healthy cell function and promote skin healing. Direct high frequency offers the results of treating dry and dehydrated skin by increasing the activity in the sebaceous and sporiferous glands and causing a skin warming effect. Direct high frequency ozone provides benefits for those with blemish prone and acneic type skin by killing bacteria and eliminating oils. In addition, high frequency facial treatments result in an improvement of the appearance of the skin as well as a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
