Nadia Amy - Citrus Scrub - Revive MD

Acne though superficial, should be taken seriously just as any other health condition, in fact, most major league sports teams have a team Dermatologist.

Acne in athletes can originate from a number of factors like the obvious sweat, player to player contact, shaving, cleanliness of clothes, testosterone and hormones alike.

Some tips to help alleviate that stubborn skin of yours include, blotting not wiping as harsh wiping can cause micro-tears in your skin.

Also, applying a moisturizer while your skin is still wet after cleaning this allows the skin to absorb the emollients more effectively. Lastly, always wear sunscreen and never sit in your sweaty clothes post-workout to avoid acne from sweat build up.

When looking for a solution to your troubled skin or if you are being proactive and considering a preventative option take a closer look at the ingredients label.

Chances are if you are an athlete you have combination skin, meaning a mix of dry and oily from time to time. Thankfully Revive MD has created a product tailored to athletes while also being very affordable.

The first ingredient in the Revive MD Citrus Scrub after water is capric triglyceride. Caprylic triglycerides are compounds made of naturally occurring fatty acids and work as an antioxidant to help smooth skin. Emollients work by trapping moisture in your skin and forming a protective layer so in this case regarding athletes who sweat and tend to have combination skin we more so need the moisture locked in.

The next ingredient following capric triglyceride in the athlete scrub is argan oil. Going from moisture-locking to argan oil is the best ally to keep your skin from drying out. Argan oil allows the product to effectively treat several types of acne while promoting a calmer complexion.

Whether or not you find yourself on a screen with millions of fans commenting on your every move (or pimple), a healthy routine and the right skincare products designed for athletes will help you target bacteria and reduce the spread of sports-related and hormonal acne.
