Break­outs

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Fun, Fearless Beauty - Why it hap­pens sexy so­lu­tion

Sweat from a crazy, calo­rie- slay­ing gym sesh or a sim­ple sum­mer out­ing can clog sweat ducts, lead­ing to break­outs, says der­ma­tol­o­gist Jes­sica Wu, MD. Red rash­like bumps, how­ever, are likely fol­li­culi­tis, which may be caused by seem­ingly in­no­cent yoga pants, tight tanks, or even snug undies.

Both is­sues can be treated sim­i­larly: Shower with sal­i­cylic acid–laced body wash ( it breaks down oil and curbs in­flam­ma­tion). Fol­low with an­tibac­te­rial ben­zoyl-per­ox­ide lo­tion one or two times daily un­til skin is clear. Un­til then, rely on a trusty con­cealer—or Vi­sine, which con­stricts blood ves­sels in skin like it does eyes, says der­ma­tol­o­gist Mona Go­hara, MD.
