Exercise balances hormones, and more importantly, i bet most athletes get TON of sunshine (vitamin d ) everyday

How do you claim athletes dont get acne?

There are many people who have been exercising for their whole lifes and still have acne. I think you are only talking about atheletes in the olympics and such. I think the top athletes don't get acne because they got pretty much the best genes you can get so their hormones are good anyway. There is also millions of dollars involved in sponsors so the athletes do everything to get more famous which is why they use make up and stuff to get a good skin and look good on magazines and such.

I see people with acne at my gym all the time. The way you work out determines what your hormones do. If you are bulking, or eating a lot and lifting heavy weights, your testosterone goes way up. But if you are a long distance runner, your testosterone goes down.


How I Stay Clear:

  • Accutane 5mg/day

  • Probiotics 25 billion organisms/day

  • Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser 2x/day

Low Dose Accutane Log

Athletes do get acne.  

 

But you are right. Exercise, vitamin D as well as being outdoors in the light do improve acne.  The right kind of exercise improves just about all the factors that lead to acne such as hormone balance, glucose metabolism, stress, inflammation, etc.  However, athletes tend to do the wrong kind of exercise that promotes inflammation and can stimulate the hormones we acne prone people don't want stimulated. Although they do still get many of the other benefits.

 

The kind of exercise that is most beneficial without wasted effort and harmful effects is to do what humans are naturally meant to do and have systems designed to fuel and recover from.  Move around a lot every day walking and doing chores.  And do occasional spurts of intense activity such as lifting heaving things, sprinting, climbing, etc. 


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
