I am looking to get some advice on my current situation. I am a 27 year old male who for all of my adolescent and adult life have been very active. I work out 5-6 days a week usually doing a combination of cardio (running, soccer, or insanity videos) weight lifting, and other sports. I recently tore my ACL in my knee and had to have surgery. And literally haven't done any sort of intense workouts in about 6 weeks.
My face has been incredibly clear for the past 3-4 weeks. I have literally changed nothing else, and i've actually been washing my face less because i just had surgery. And it just makes me wonder if I get acne due to sweating or testosterone increase during working out? I have never really been able to control my acne with products and I have tried a lot of them, (Retin-A, Benzaclin, antibiotics, pro-activ, clinique clean and clear).
Does anyone have any advice for staying this clear? I don't want to choose between clear skin and good physique!! For the record after I workout, I literally jump in the shower right away and wash my face. And my acne is mostly all around my mouth. (perioral acne?). Thanks!
