My man works in hot greasy factory and constantly sweats. He’s been using the Hydra Healing Rescue gel each morning under the Facial Primer Moisturizer. He’s been using the Acne kit for a month and a half after the Detox kit for a month. He hasn’t seen many results until maybe this week. He will be cleared up, then go back to work and sweating all day with grease and what not and breaks out again. Hoping it’s just the “waves” he’s having and it’ll eventually get more mild. We aren’t giving up! When we don’t “mess with” the bumps, it seems to always be better.
Thank you so much!
Thanks for your question!
If he’s able to use products on his breaks, I would highly recommend that he uses the Quick Spritz Oil Fix followed by the Skin Support Serum. If after two weeks or so he notices the Serum is making his face too dry, opt for the Quick Spritz on all breaks and the Serum just on lunch break.
When he gets home, have him wash with the Tea Tree Scrub right away, then follow up with the Hydra Healing gel + Facial Primer Moisturizer. I know this may sound obvious, and he probably is already doing this, but just in case…. have him avoid touching his face at work as much as possible. Bacteria LOVES a sweaty damp environment and touching his face at all will just spread it around. Oh, and when he does use the products on his breaks, make sure to tell him to wash his hands really good before (again, obvious but important to note just in case it slips his mind). He may even consider putting the Skin Support Serum in a spray bottle (like the Quick Spritz comes in) for easy application!
If he gets the chance to wash his face on any breaks, I’d suggest using one of the following: lavender soap, the grapefruit side of the P&G bar, Soothing Cleanser, or Tresses to Toes soap. If he can apply a mist or serum with hydration AND anti-bacterial properties after washing his face at work that will definitely help too. Suggestions would be: Acne BOP Mist, After Acne Mist, Acne BOP Serum, After Acne Serum, Balance Serum, or Bloom Serum (this would be the one I would suggest starting with for him). He can skip the Skin Support Serum if he’s able to wash his face on breakouts. Perhaps maybe using the Skin Support Serum or Quick Spritz on his short breaks, and then washing his face on his lunch/longer break.
I believe you’re right with the waves of healing you mentioned. Sticking with the plans we’ve talked about* should have him seeing more milder breakouts as time goes on.
I hope that helps!
