If it matters, I'm a male and 17 and slim built. I basically only want to lift weights for my arms. Nothing else.
Or is it best to stick away from weight lifting?

Thanks man, what about my other exercises, just like push ups and crunches etc, they okay?
If your acne is hormonal which it probably is at your age, I would say the increase in testosterone will directly effect the amount of acne you get. Not for the better either. This is from personal experience but obviously everyone is different.

Creatine, steroids etc increase your testerone levels, which means more spots.
Also protein shakes contain dairy, which causes a problem for a lot of people.
Weight training is fine just avoid the supplements or if you want a protein shake try a hemp seed one (it's just about edible).
