Sweat has many little microbial peptides that are good for combating against different fungi, viruses, and even bacteria. These little positively charged peptides can attract the negatively charged bacteria on your skin and breaks them down. In turn, less foreign bacteria are present on your skin to enter and infect your body.

Bye-bye Pimples.

When you sweat, your pores open up to release the sweat. This in turn also releases the buildup of toxins within your pores and helps to purge your body of all of the toxin buildup. However, it’s important to note that only mild and moderate sweating helps to promote the toxin purge. Over-excessive sweating can actually predispose certain individuals to skin infections since their pores are larger than others.
