I can attest to this. When I take long breaks from working out, my skin settles down. But when I start working out again, ouch. I don't think it is testosterone. Working out doesnt increase it (yes, proven) but there are a ton of other things that your body goes through when you distress your muscles. Prostoglandins go through the roof and cause inflammation. Blood vessels dilate. Your blood becomes more acidic due to the buildup of lacic acid. etc...
I'm wondering if vitamin A is the link.
Most diets are incredibly devoid of vitamin A, and we're told (wrongly), that vitamin A in 'high' doses isn't safe..
But most primitive diets were high in vitamin A from animal foods. Today, we don't consume any organ meats, so our diet is low in vitamin A. However, primitive cultures always consumed lots of vitamin A.
When you're working out, your body is using up vitamin A stores for protein synthesis, thus depleting your body of vitamin A over time, and lessening the amount for your skin.
This is just a theory of mine, but it makes sense.

my laser treatmets ended like i think 2 months ago. and now my back is like this. hopefully it will continue to improve?
- i shall try the beach idea one day . but rite now im too insecure too take off my clothes in public
- i shall try the H & S idea
- after my laser treatments.. my acne is now currently under control i think lol . so now im using a combination of a lighting cream (night ) to get rid of the red marks + an anti-wrinkle cream (morning) to like smooth out my skin yea thats it
