The Regimen - Working Out?

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys I recently started the Regimen and it has pretty well. My acne is clearing up, but I still have an pimple or two that breaks out. I generally do the Regimen after I wake up and right before I go to sleep, as the video posted by on this site says to only do it twice. For those who workout, what do you do before and after you workout? Do you wash your face before you work out? Do you do the whole Regimen again afterwards, or do you just use a cleanser? Last time I ran, I had a huge breakout and would love some tips to keep my acne away

Thanks

Hey TonyC and welcome to the acne.org community! To answer your question, as a gym rat, I like to try to work out early morning, just before the time I would normally do the regimen... If I do a mid day or lunch time work out, I just wipe my face down and keep it moving... For an evening workout, again, I try to schedule it around the time I'd normally do my evening regimen... Once you apply DKR, there is no need to apply it again after a workout... You can keep your normal regimen schedule... Over washing or reapplying BP can really irritate your skin, so just be mindful of that... Good luck and keep us up to date on your progress... :)

I sweat quite a bit; too much for the "just wipe off" method, I have found. I have to plan one of my Regimen applications coincide with my post-workout shower. I will exercise in the morning right after I wake up, then shower, then do the Regimen. If I play sports, it is usually in the evening, and I am able to do my regimen afterwards. Because I exercise either late night or early morning, it isn't a problem for me to just do my regimen after I shower.

I know, however, that lots of people like to work out late afternoon. In addition to being a convenient after-work, before-supper timeframe for most people, it can apparently help you sleep better. If you work out at 4 or 5 PM, I don't know what to suggest. Probably go to bed earlier and wake up earlier, so you can do your AM Regimen at least ten hours before you do your PM regimen. It's kind of a tough one.

Unfortunately, you really have to plan your workout around the Regimen.

I'm an early morning work out person mostly, but if I exercise after work I just splash my face with water afterwards to remove the sweat and then just apply one pump of moisturiser to tide me over until its time to do the property regimen application. I would say that the BP is pretty well absorbed into the skin and so sweating shouldnt effect it too much.
