Summers are characterised by beaches, summer dresses, ice lollies and mangoes – such a wonderful time, eh? All of these little joys can temporarily make us forget the dreaded heat that comes with the season. However, ugly red spots that pop up on the nose or right in the middle of the forehead bring us back to the realities of summer. It almost seems like pimples and acne choose summer time to attack us vigorously, be it on our faces or our body! However, if you are tired of touching up and hiding heat pimples and their scars, maybe it’s time to address the elephant in the room. Instead of tiptoeing around the pimples, give your skin some extra care to get rid of your woes, because they require special attention!

If you’re a victim of heat pimples, then you’re at the right place! We will tell you everything you need to know about these zits and how to reduce these heat pimples on the face naturally.

  • What Are Heat Pimples? What Causes Them?
  • How to Reduce Heat Pimples on the Face Naturally?
  • 1. Aloe vera
  • 2. Honey
  • 3. Lemon juice
  • 4. Apple cider vinegar
  • 5. Castor oil
  • 6. Turmeric powder
  • 7. Neem leaves
  • 8. Tea tree oil


What Are Heat Pimples? What Causes Them?

Heat pimples are slightly different from the regular zits you get. They are red boils that appear on your skin, especially during summers. As the name suggests, they are a result of your internal body heat. This internal body heat increases during summers as the temperature is already hot outside. Moreover, consuming mangoes in excess also contributes to increased body heat. These factors thus create a favorable environment for heat pimples.

When there is increased body heat, it tends to aggravate the overproduction of sebum. When sebaceous glands become overactive and produce more sebum, it leads to blockage of skin pores. Oil gets trapped in these pores, which leads to the formation of heat pimples.

Apart from these, heat pimples can also be caused due to a variety of reasons, such as a poor diet, wearing tight-fitting clothes, bacterial infection, weakened immune system, increased alcohol consumption and clogged sweat glands.


How to Reduce Heat Pimples on the Face Naturally?

Heat pimples can be a menace and leave you with marks and scars on your face. However, not all is lost! There are some ways that you can reduce the occurrence of these pimples, and no, you do not have to spend a lot on multiple products. We will show you how you can reduce heat pimples naturally.


1. Aloe vera

The cooling aloe vera gel works wonders on the skin! Along with soothing the skin, aloe vera also lessens bacterial infections that cause pimples, thanks to its antimicrobial properties. Moreover, aloe vera gel promotes faster healing.

How to use it?

Take some aloe vera gel and apply it on the heat pimples. If you’re using store-bought aloe vera gel, just make sure it doesn’t contain any hidden ingredients. Leave the gel on your pimples overnight and wash it off in the morning. You can repeat this ritual every day.


2. Honey

Along with being an excellent natural humectant that helps retain the skin’s moisture, honey is also extremely capable of treating heat pimples. Its antibacterial properties fight infections that can cause pimples and it also has a soothing effect on the skin when applied. The stickiness of honey that you may not like is actually useful as well! It helps remove excess dirt from the pores of the skin.  

How to use it?

Apply honey on the pimples directly and let it dry. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes and then wash off your face. You can repeat this 2-3 times daily.



Lemon juice

Thanks to its astringent nature and exfoliating attributes, lemon juice is a reliable remedy to reduce heat pimples on the face naturally. The abundance of vitamin C and antibacterial properties in lemon juice help treat pimples and also soothe the skin, leaving no chance for inflammation and scars! The best part? Using lemon juice on the skin regularly gives it a lovely glow, so why not use it?

How to use it?

Mix a teaspoon of lemon juice with honey and dab the mixture on the pimples with a cotton ball. Let it stay on the pimples for 5 minutes and wash off with cold water. Doing this once daily will prevent heat pimples from forming.


4. Apple cider vinegar

Becoming increasingly popular for its health benefits, apple cider vinegar can kill acne-causing bacteria due to its acidic nature. Moreover, it can also heal scars left behind by pimples and help in faster healing. However, since apple cider vinegar is acidic in nature, it shouldn’t be used directly on the skin. Always dilute it with water before using.

How to use it?

To begin with, take a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and dilute it with water. The quantity of water depends on how much you need, but the more there is, the better it can dilute the apple cider vinegar. Dab this solution on the pimples with a cotton ball. Secure it with a band-aid and leave it for a few hours. Remove the band-aid and wash off the face with cold water. Use this remedy not more than once a day.  


5. Castor oil

Castor oil, excellent for the hair, also works wonderfully to reduce heat pimples on the face naturally. It boasts of anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that not only help to fight heat pimples but also reduce the inflammation caused by them. Thus, castor oil reduces heat pimples and soothes the skin.

How to use it?

Mix 2-3 drops of castor oil with a few drops of sandalwood oil. Add this oil blend to boiling water and keep it aside for 5 minutes. Apply the mixture on your face and pat it dry. Leave it on overnight and wash it off the next morning. Use this remedy twice a week for getting rid of heat pimples.


6. Turmeric powder

Used traditionally for treating several skin problems, turmeric is a strong home remedy to reduce heat pimples on the face naturally. Curcumin, present in turmeric, is anti-inflammatory in nature and has antimicrobial properties that can kill pimple-causing bacteria. Its antiseptic properties fight breakouts. Besides, using turmeric on the skin will also give it a natural glow!

How to use it?

Mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder with 1-2 tablespoons of yogurt and make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the pimples and let it stay on the face until it dries up. Then wash it off with cold water.


7. Neem leaves

Neem leaves are known to be filled with antibacterial properties, and this help kill acne-causing bacteria. Their anti-inflammatory properties can soothe the skin and relieve the swelling caused due to heat pimples. For faster healing, use this paste every day.

How to use it?

Boil some neem leaves in water, strain and let it cool. To these leaves, add a teaspoon of sandalwood powder and blend to make a fine paste. Apply it on the pimples and let it dry. Once dry, wash it off with cold water.


8. Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties that can help to reduce heat pimples on the face naturally. It can prevent outbreaks and unclog pores by ridding the skin of grease and dirt. However, using tea tree oil directly on the face may cause irritation, so always dilute it before using it and use it once a few days.

How to use it?

Add 2-3 drops of tea tree oil to a carrier oil (coconut oil/castor oil) and apply it on the pimples. Wash it off after some time with cold water.

If you find yourself breaking out after a particularly sweaty workout, rest assured it’s not unusual. Sweating — whether from hot weather or exercise — may contribute to a specific type of acne breakout commonly referred to as sweat pimples.

The combination of sweat, heat, and friction can lead to clogging of pores. Plus, sweat on your skin may keep acne-causing bacteria in place.

Acne breakouts from sweat are more likely to appear when sweat combines with pressure or friction from headbands, hats, clothing, or backpack straps. Medically speaking, this is known as acne mechanica.

Keep reading to learn how to treat and prevent sweat pimples, and how to tell the difference between sweat pimples and bumps caused by heat rash.

Sweat pimples should be treated like any acne breakout:

  • Gently wash (not scrub) the area twice a day.
  • Use non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, oil-free products.
  • Resist touching or picking.
  • Use acne medication.
  • Wash clothing, sheets, or pillowcases that touch your acne-prone skin.

To prevent acne breakouts due to sweating:

  • Maintain your regular acne treatment routine of washing and medication.
  • After periods of heavy sweating, shower with antibacterial soap.
  • Wash your workout clothing regularly.
  • Avoid tight-fitting clothes and accessories.
  • When possible, seek cooler areas with lower humidity, particularly during the hottest part of the day.
  • If possible, take special care to avoid tight clothing or equipment that may be contributing to the breakout (e.g. a chinstrap causing chin acne breakouts).

Another thing to consider is that the bumps on your skin may be a symptom of heat rash, rather than an acne breakout.

Heat rashes are caused by excessive sweating, typically during hot, humid weather. When blocked sweat ducts trap perspiration under your skin, the result is heat rash.

Heat rash symptoms can look like pimples

The two most common types of heat rash, miliaria crystallina and miliaria rubra, can look very similar to acne. In fact, experts at the University of Pittsburgh describes heat rash as looking like “a cluster of red bumps that resemble pimples.”

  • Miliaria crystallina (sudamina) can appear as small white or clear, fluid-filled bumps on your skin’s surface.
  • Miliaria rubra (prickly heat) can appear as red bumps on your skin.

Typically, miliaria crystallina is not painful or itchy, while miliaria rubra can cause prickly or itchy sensations.

Heat rashes typically appear on the back, chest, and neck.

The treatment for mild heat rash is to remove yourself from exposure to excessive heat. Your rash will most likely clear once your skin is cool.

If the rash is severe, your doctor may recommend topical treatments, such as:

  • calamine lotion
  • anhydrous lanolin
  • topical steroids

To avoid heat rash, take steps before exposing yourself to situations that might result in heavy sweating. For example, don’t exercise outdoors during the hottest part of the day.

Or, in an especially hot, humid environment, try working out first thing in the morning, before the sun has had a chance to heat things up.

Additional suggestions include:

  • Wear soft, loose-fitting, lightweight cotton or moisture-wicking clothing when the weather is hot.
  • Seek shade or air-conditioning during hot weather.
  • When showering or bathing, use a soap that doesn’t dry your skin and cool water.
  • Allow your skin to air dry as opposed to using a towel.
  • Avoid using ointments that can block pores, such as those containing mineral oil or petroleum.
  • Make sure your sleeping area is well ventilated and cool.

Although excessive sweating can contribute to acne breakouts, your sweat pimples could also be a symptom of heat rash.

You might be able to address both conditions by cooling off and:

  • avoiding places and activities that increase sweating
  • washing — but not over-washing or scrubbing — your skin
  • using gentle antibacterial soaps and non-comedogenic products
  • cleaning your clothing, bedding, and other materials that come in contact with your skin
  • wearing loose-fitting, lightweight clothing when the weather is hot

Pimples on the face – causes, what diseases it occurs in, diagnosis and methods of treatment











02 December

Acne on the face: the causes of the appearance, in which diseases it occurs, diagnosis and methods of treatment.


The sebaceous glands in human skin are located at the base of the hair follicle. They produce sebum, which moisturizes the skin and protects against the negative effects of the environment, bacteria and fungi. Hypersecretion of the sebaceous glands provokes the formation of acne (acne, blackheads). On the face, they are most often localized at the locations of the large sebaceous glands (on the forehead, temples, cheeks, nose and chin).

Varieties of pimples on the face

In its most general form, pimples are one of two types:

Non-inflammatory elements (comedones) – look like small bumps or dots of various colors. Comedones can be open or closed.

  • Open comedones appear as hard, superficial-type eruptions, usually gray or black in color, due to the oxidative reaction of their contents with oxygen.
  • Closed comedones, subcutaneous pimples (milia) have the appearance of white bumps or dots, similar to small grains of millet. The accumulated sebum has no way out, which leads to painful inflammation. Closed comedones often turn into classic red pimples.

Inflammatory elements immediately catch the eye due to their size. The skin around them becomes thinner and redder, the purulent contents of the pimple are visible through it. When palpated, pain or discomfort usually occurs. There are several types of inflammatory rashes:

  • Papules (red pimples) are inflamed comedones without obvious purulent content. They look like small red or pink balls protruding above the surface of the skin, there is no white head. If the papule has formed at the site of an open comedone, then a dark plug can often be seen through the skin.
  • Pustules are infected papules or, more simply, pimples with purulent contents and a white head, surrounded by inflamed skin. They appear when, in addition to sebum and bacteria, dead skin cells enter the pores. The shape of the pustules are cone-shaped, flat or spherical. Their color can vary from white to yellow or green.

    Green color means the attachment of a secondary infection, and with self-squeezing, there is a high probability of its penetration into the blood.

  • Nodules (nodules) are deep hard subcutaneous papules of bright red, cyanotic or purple color, ranging in size from 1 to 3 cm, protruding to the surface of the skin, often accompanied by purulent discharge. After recovery, age spots and scars are left.
  • Cystic acne is a sign of damage to the deep layers of the skin, indicating the presence of inflammation with the formation of pus. Cysts located at a short distance from each other tend to merge, forming a whole chain connected by fistulas.

Cystic acne is difficult to treat and always leaves noticeable marks on the skin.

Possible causes of acne on the face

So, acne appears as a result of excessive production of sebum, which clogs the skin pores. If the pore is partially closed and there is air access to it, the formation of acne begins. At first, they look like black dots surrounded by inflamed skin – the so-called blackheads. In a completely clogged pore, like in a container, anaerobic bacteria multiply rapidly ( Propionibacterium acnes or Malassezia ), provoking inflammation and suppuration.

But what makes the sebaceous glands work so actively? It is believed that one of the reasons lies in the high level of androgens (male sex hormones), which stimulate the production of sebum. The development of hyperandrogenism can be facilitated by digestive problems, stress, diseases of the kidneys and adrenal glands, the endocrine and reproductive systems.

It is important to mention that rashes on the face that look like acne can be a symptom and manifestation of other, sometimes very serious dermatological diseases (acneform dermatosis), which are in no way related to the work of the sebaceous glands.

Acne on the face can be a symptom of a number of diseases (impaired function of internal organs, hormonal dysfunction, lack of vitamins, decreased immunity), as well as poor environmental conditions, improper skin care. We list the main diseases, conditions and factors that result in skin rashes.

  • Physiological changes in hormonal status: puberty, the second phase of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, lactation, menopause.
  • Diseases of the endocrine system: polycystic ovary syndrome, hypothyroidism, tumors of the endocrine glands.
  • Thickening of the stratum corneum of the epidermis (hyperkeratosis), when dead cells of the epidermis do not exfoliate, but remain on the skin, clogging the sebaceous glands.
  • Liver diseases and intoxication caused by them.
  • Malnutrition and beriberi:
    • The predominance of fast carbohydrates in the diet (fast food, bakery products, fried, fatty foods) provokes an increase in blood glucose levels and a sharp release of insulin, which, in turn, affects the increase in testosterone levels.
    • An excess of omega-6 fatty acids can aggravate inflammatory processes in the skin (such phenomena can be observed when eating a large amount of fish and poultry grown on animal feed).
    • The abuse of dairy products, sunflower, peanut, soybean oils and margarine often causes hyperfunction of the sebaceous glands.
    • Deficiency of zinc, vitamins A and E, Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, impaired motility and intestinal motility, frequent constipation contribute to intoxication and the appearance of acne.

  • Streptococcal and staphylococcal infections provoke the formation of acne.
  • Acute respiratory infections are often accompanied by purulent rashes on the skin.
  • Genetic differences in hormonal levels, the tendency of the skin to produce excessive amounts of sebum or excessive sensitivity to testosterone are often inherited.
  • Stress leads to an increase in the production of the hormone cortisol, which provokes the development of hyperplasia of the sebaceous glands and, accordingly, increased production of sebum.
  • Improperly selected facial skin care products.
  • Ultraviolet radiation reduces local skin immunity and increases the risk of comedone formation.
  • Spontaneous rash may be the result of an allergic reaction, including after taking certain drugs, for example, immunomodulators, photosensitizers, antiepileptic drugs, barbiturates, anti-tuberculosis drugs, lithium preparations, B vitamins, anabolics.
  • Demodex subcutaneous mite ( Demodex folliсulorum and Demodex brevis ) also plays a role in the formation of acne and, if not its direct cause, certainly complicates the treatment.

Which doctors to contact if acne appears on the face

If you have skin rashes, you should contact dermatologists and cosmetologists. However, often treatment requires an integrated approach, which involves the treatment of the disease, the symptom of which is acne. In this case, consultations are needed
allergist, psychoneurologist.

Diagnostics and examinations in case of acne

Pimples and their localization are a kind of messenger that transmits information about disorders in the functioning of organs or systems. Most often, acne occurs in the so-called T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) – here the sebaceous glands are most active, and the pores are enlarged. But often acne is also found on the cheeks, cheekbones (U-zone). This is due to various reasons and the state of the body. A special map-guide “Types of acne and what they mean” has been compiled. So, the middle part of the forehead corresponds to the lower part of the digestive tract, the small intestine and bladder, the area near the auricles – to the kidneys, the eyelids and the area around the eyes – to the liver, the temporal region – to the gallbladder, the middle third of the face, the cheekbones – to the lungs, the chin – to the stomach, the pelvic organs, the nose – the pancreas and heart, and the lower part of the cheeks and the lower jaw – the lower gastrointestinal tract.

Diagnosis begins with a thorough examination of the skin, collecting anamnesis (information about past illnesses, operations, chronic diseases, heredity) and establishing a connection between rashes and lifestyle, nutrition, and habits.

If the nature of the disease is not obvious, laboratory tests are ordered.

    What to do when pimples appear on the face

    Pimples cannot be squeezed out for several reasons:

    • when squeezing, the integrity of the skin is violated, which means that bacteria can penetrate into it;
    • squeezing acne provokes the appearance of age spots and scars.

    With proper daily care, based on gentle cleansing, regular moisturizing and suppression of inflammation, comedones can be eliminated in 7-10 days. In addition, it is necessary to abandon fatty, sweet foods and flour products.

    Acne treatment

    Acne treatment algorithm depends on the cause that caused them, so it is always individual and there are no general recommendations. The doctor may prescribe both topical and systemic drugs.
    If there are few acne and these are open comedones, then professional cosmetic facial cleaning is often enough.

    Closed comedones are much more dangerous because they can combine and form a large subcutaneous cavity, which gradually fills with pus. Attempts to remove them at home usually lead to infection, so it is best to entrust this task to a professional beautician.

    To eliminate papules, there are special drying agents. For example, salicylic acid, tea tree oil, green tea.

    Modern cosmetology has the ability to help reduce the appearance of acne and to a large extent prevent the appearance of new ones.

    • Phototherapy is an effective treatment for acne. Light warms the skin to the required depth, causing the death of bacteria, and cleanses the sebaceous glands.
    • Mechanical or ultrasonic cleaning is used to correct black and white dots, comedones in the T-zone.
    • Laser therapy eliminates the manifestations of acne without leaving scars and scars. Due to the effect of the laser, the natural fat balance of the skin is normalized, and recovery processes are launched.

    Treatment of severe acne is carried out with the help of retinoid preparations, the main active ingredient of which is vitamin A.

    Many people think that acne on the face is the fate of unfortunate teenagers. But there are rashes on the face and in older people. Let’s see what it can be and how to deal with it.

    What problems do adults have

    1. Tarda acne is the name of late acne, which most often occurs in women over 30 and is localized on the lower part of the face, less often on the chest and back. Usually their appearance is associated with hormonal disorders – in this case, you need to contact a gynecologist-endocrinologist, take a smear for oncocytology and ultrasound of the small pelvis. But while you understand, you can also contact a dermatologist to start external therapy to eliminate rashes and prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and scarring.
    2. Rosacea is the second most common problem. It is also more common in women, but men are not uncommon, especially those in leadership positions. Rashes in this case are located in the center of the face and on the cheeks, on the nose and on the central part of the forehead. Presented as small pink nodules or even pustules against the background of general reddening of the face, there may also be vascular networks. In this case, it is necessary to exclude trigger factors – these are hot drinks, alcohol (especially cognac and red wine), spicy foods with spices, insolation, baths, saunas, intensive training. Those. anything that increases blood flow to the face. It is necessary to use sunscreen, especially in the summer (and if you are a fan of ski resorts). It is also worth contacting a cosmetologist-dermatologist to prescribe external drug therapy and select medical cosmetics that will support the achieved result. A very good effect is given by such hardware methods as microcurrent therapy in combination with lymphatic drainage and IPL therapy with broadband light, for example, on the M22 device.

      In long-term and severe cases of acne and rosacea, systemic retinoids are recommended, but only as prescribed by a dermatologist who has experience in selecting and calculating the dosage of this drug.

    3. Perioral dermatitis – this type of dermatosis is also called “stewardess disease”, but it occurs in men and even in children. Rashes are located in isolation, around the natural openings of the mouth and nose, less often around the eyes. This is often associated with prolonged use of hormonal creams and ointments, improper selection of cosmetics, incl. in men after shaving, as well as the use of fluorinated toothpastes. Therefore, it is recommended to change the paste, exclude all topical products and consult a dermatologist as this pathology just does not go away on its own.
