These patches consist of dead skin cells, dirt, and sweat, which can trigger acne, or exacerbate pre-existing conditions, such as psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema.
Doctor Michele Green, a cosmetic dermatologist based in New York City, explained that some people need to shower more than others, depending on how often they work out.
Doctor Green told Real Simple: “Aside from the odour, you’ll need to be concerned about a host of different skin issues, like acne, irritation, flare-ups of existing skin conditions, and even years or fungal infections.
“Acne forms when there is a blockage and inflammation of sebaceous follicles, not only on the face but on the chest and back as well.”
