Battle Workout-Induced Skin Problems

Get better at the sports you play and the life you lead at STACK. Improve your training, nutrition and lifestyle with daily

Battling breakouts? Combating chafing? Here are two products that deal with these workout-induced skin problems.

Bendis Facial Cleanser and Sport Wipes [bendisskin.com] // $12, $8.40 per pack

Instead of benzoyl peroxide, which can dry out the skin, Bendis contains salicylic acid to help alleviate sports-induced acne caused by friction and heat irritating the skin near your hairline, and on your face, back and neck.

BODYGLIDE Anti-Chafe Balm [bodyglide.com] // $10

This product's non-petroleum-based formula is suitable on head-to-toe hot spots—neck, chest, buttocks, thighs and feet—and helps protect against skin and clothing friction. It glides on like deodorant and creates an invisible barrier against moisture. The formula is hypoallergenic, sweat and water-resistant, and doesn't clog pores.
