So It Was Sex Causing My Acne. Any Solution?

27 December 2011 - 08:29 PM

Well, I finally came to the realization that sex was what was keeping me from finally getting clear. Avoiding dairy helps my skin, but despite going on  tons of diets for the past 4 years, I always had acne. No matter how strict my diet got, aside from avoiding dairy, it never made a whole lot of difference. So, I broke up with my gf a few weeks ago, and went from having sex almost daily to having none at all. After about a week my skin cleared up, for the first time ever. I thought that maybe my diet was just FINALLY working. I continued to have clear skin for about 2 weeks, which hasn't happened since I was about 15 (25 now). So I met a new girl, had sex a few times, and now am breaking out again. Nothing else changed. I feel like there is absolutely no other explanation. I always thought this was nonsense, but unfortunately its not. I'm not trying to argue on whether or not this is the cause. My question is whether there's anything I can do about this or if I'm just kind of screwed. I'm not going to abstain from sex, that's ridiculous. DO I just have to live with acne?
