work environment

Hi all just a quick question,

I recently started training in a bakery. I'm am working in quite a hot environment. I perspire a lot through the working day and when I come home I always find my face feels both oily and gritty/grimy from working in the heat and around all the flour.

This change has really affected my skin. I have always had oily skin as opposed to dry skin, but never as bad as this and I am starting to break out in spots on my face and on my chest, I assume from perspiring so much.

Will my skin adjust to this environment or is there any changes I could make to my skin care routine?
Should I bring wet wipes to work?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi - sorry that you haven't gotten any responses yet.  I am newish to medhelp and just happened upon your question.  I am a chef and have worked in the past as a baker.  I too had skin issues when I was baking because of the environment.  I never wore any makeup to work, drank tons of water, rinsed my face off with cool water during breaks and refrained from touching my face at all during work.  Unfortunately, the thing that worked the most was eliminating sugar and yeast products from my diet.  Because most bakeries are full of yeast, it was just too much for my system.  I wish you luck and hope that your system norms out soon.

Hi! Thanks so much, I had given up on any hope of a reply lol.

Welcome to Medhelp!
Yeah at the beginning I wore a little makeup to work but then I figured it needed to breath. I've also started drinking a lot of water and bringing green tea to work with me. I hope it settles soon. Thanks again!
