Sweat And Oily Skin, Input Appreciated

3 posts in this topic

Hey everybody, I'm constantly pondering and experimenting with this oily skin affliction, and I was just thinking the other day about how sweating affects the oilyness of your skin. Personally, when I'm at the gym and sweating my skin is NOT oily, no matter how oily I began my workout. I was wondering why this is, and could this be related to finding an effective treatment for oily skin?

Has anyone else experienced this, or is it just me? I wonder if it has something to do with the salt in the sweat, improved circulation, pH change, pore switchover from sebum to sweat...

Love to hear your thought on this. Thanks.

Huh, maybe it's just me lol.

Regardless, I have some Zinc Oxide products coming in the mail and I'll be testing them out over the next few weeks. Anything significant and I'll post it here. I know that it is good for acne and soaks up oil, but the trick will be finding some way to cut it/dilute it so that it can be rubbed in the skin so you can wear it during the day. Otherwise you'll look like Casper until you wash it off LOL.
