Solving Sports-Related Skin Problems

Manage Body Odor, Athlete’s Foot, Bacne, Sunburn and Brittle Hair Printable Version

SPORTS are the perfect way for men to get in shape and have a good time doing it. But with greater exercise often comes greater challenges to your skin and body, and we’re not just talking about sore muscles here. Learn how you can control and eliminate common men’s grooming and skincare problems as you continue to work towards your fitness goals.

Facial Acne: Exercise and sweat can lead to acne breakouts, as grime accumulates in blocked pores. But you can prevent reoccurring acne with a daily application of Acne Therapy Lotion. If you already suffer from existing pimples, target them immediately by applying Acne Spot Repair directly to the blemish.

Back Acne (Bacne): Shower as soon you’re done working out (our Daily Body Wash contains Tea Tree Extract and Salicylic Acid to combat bacteria and clear pores), and regularly exfoliate skin with Buff Body Gloves. Keep hair from hanging on your shoulders and back, and wear exercise clothes that whisk sweat from skin’s surface.

Body Odor: You can’t have exercise without B.O., but you can control it by washing as soon as you’re finished exercising and using a deodorant that doesn’t just mask odors with a heavy scent, but rather targets and neutralizes bacteria (we recommend the Advanced Deodorant. It’s maximum-strength and does not contain aluminum, which has been linked to health-related problems.).

Sunburn: A match on the courts is a great way to stay in shape, but forget to slap on sunscreen and you’re sprinting towards a world of pain (and future ages spots and wrinkles). Men require a sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum protection against UVA/UVB rays and won’t wash away with sweat. Choose one that provides maximum protection like TiO2 Sunblock SPF 30.

Athlete’s Foot: Caused by moist conditions and friction in your shoe, athlete’s foot is an irritating problem that affects many guys. Keep feet as clean and dry as you can by washing your feet with a cleanser that contains antibacterial ingredients and drying them thoroughly after exercising.

Damaged hair: Swim for long enough and you’ll develop sculpted waist, arms and legs…and brittle hair?! Rinse hair with fresh water before taking a dip (this will cut down on the amount of chlorinated/saltwater absorbed) and immediately after. Wash hair with Daily Shampoo to rebalance moisture levels and protect follicles, and wear a swim cap if you swim regularly.
