3 – Do exercises:

It might look confusing, but you can get rid of blemishes with the assistance of physical activities as well.

The main reason to exercise is to produce sweat throughout your face. That’s because the sweat releases the excess sebum oil with it, which is the typical reason for the acne on the skin.

Do those exercises that warm the body faster; some of these exercises include:

  • Running (until the sweat is released)
  • Stair climbing
  • Cardio

Make sure not to stop the exercise until the sweat does not fully cover the skin. If the blemishes are on your facial skin, you will need to perform more activities.

Also, don’t dry the skin in the fan; wipe off all of the liquid with a smooth towel or any cloth. Do not rub the towel on the affected skin; apply it gently to remove all of the sweat.

To this end, Perspiration, as well the sweat with the help of any particular activity, can assist you in removing sebum from the skin to treat the blemishes.

4 – Take a hot shower – after the exercises:

Once you are done from workouts, you need to wash off the remaining sticky sweat & sebum with the hot shower.

The steam of the shower will provide an extra advantage by opening the clogged skin pores.

Avoid applying the body soap on the affected skin; otherwise, it will dry up your skin, ending up blocking the pores.

Instead, use any suitable cleanser according to your skin type, since cleansers are efficient for removing bacteria and oil; use them once in a day.

Note: Do not take a shower if your body is wet. Always dry the sweat before going for a bath.
