Steaming Showers Causing Breakouts?

4 posts in this topic

A lot of days when I have time I sit and consider all of the lifestyle changes I made around the time my acne came back (Since I was acne free for over a year before I saw it happen again)... And one of those changes was I began showering more often...

Is it possible this is one of the contributing factors to my breakouts? Has anyone else noticed a pattern like this?

It might be important to note that I also have rosacea, so the hot weather will even irritate my skin to redness. So I'm expecting that the shower does something similar?

Thanks for reading... And excuse me if this has already been answered in another topic. smile.png

By showering more often, in turn are you washing your face more often? That could be causing extra irritation.

Do you do anything to your face in the shower? Perhaps you could blast your face with cool water after the shower to calm it down somewhat.

I find that hot showers actual improve the appearance of my acne.


Currently clear of acne with the occasional hormonal breakout. Check out my routines and progress updates here:
