Insight On Lifting Weights (Gym) And General Acne

24 October 2013 - 05:08 PM

So here goes.. many  people believe lifting weights can actually cause acne or make it worse.. well that is actually true.. in some cases if you are a male teenager because your testosterone is already high and so you have high DHT aswell so that causes more oily skin or sebum which leads to more acne.. well if you are indeed a teenager you can do what i do which really helped.. Cardio reduces the effects of DHT and Testosterone that lifting weights causes.. So i suggest you do what i do which works.. atleast for me.. do 20-30 min of cardio before you start lifting weights and 20-30 min after.. also dont take any supplements or eat dairy.. that will only make acne worst for most... also you need to always wash your face after you been sweating hard and being at the gym.. IMPORTANT.. never touch your face or let the dirty towel that was sitting on the machines that people sweat on touch your face that may cause more clogged pores /acne.. 

 


Basically key goals in order to lift weights without causing more acne or generally cause breakout is to Get on a good regimen that works for you.. that is washing your face atleast every 10-15 hours use a night time cream.. Try to eat whole foods such as brown rice , sweet potato , oatmeal e.t.c and avoid sweets , sugar starchy foods , or in general high glycemic index foods.. and do atleast 20 minutes of cardio before and/or after your done lifting weights...Also stay away from Supplements such as fat burners whey protein or well generally everything.. .. get a good multivatamin and some omega 3 fish oil casules and you're good to go.. also eat your vegedables and all of the healthy food you are suppose to eat.. 

When it comes to dairy i personally noticed for myself that fat free greek yoghurt never causes a break out.. for me personally atleast that is.. or most cheeses if in moderation.. although cottage cheese and Milk Cause an instant pimple next day with just 1-2 glasses of milk..  

I Am 17 male been working out either cardio and lifting weights throughout the past year with no problems.. i Am using a face wash for sensitive skin with vitamin c and differin as my night cream and sunscreen in the morning.. i have been using differin for a year and been using sunscreen for a year aswell as i had bad inflammed breakouts last year from lifting weights and supplementing and then being exposed to heavy sunlight which made my marks dark as ... now a year later no breakouts.. maybe a tiny pimple if i eat a lot of sugary food which vanishes the next day.. so I feel there people out there with some of these questions that i just answered so i hope you found it helpfull.. if you have Any questions whatsoever feel free to ask!!rolleyes.gif


Sunscreen And Gym..

06 June 2013 - 05:39 PM

So i will be putting sunscreen on before i go to the gym because i will be riding my bike there ... its not waterproof... should i rub it off with a tissue or wash my face? or is it ok if i just keep it on and when i sweat just pat my face with tissues?


Washing Face /showers..?

01 June 2013 - 04:19 PM

SO here goes...i currently have a shower at 3pm and wash face in shower and then apply sunscreen and go off with my day and then wash again at night after 10-12 hours and apply my cream (differin) .. BTW  i have oily skin... My question lies here... i am starting the gym in a week's time and i will shower normally like i always do at 3.pm and wash my face then and apply sunscreen .. and i will be goin to the gym at 6 or 7 or 8 and stay for 1-2 hours... Should i Wash my face with water only before i work out once i arrive at the gym? and after the gym i will be riding my bicycle to my house about 20-30 minutes (should the shower be cold?)... is that alright? and after shower( i will not be washing my face with anything.. ill be just using water on face) i will be goin out with friends... yes daily.. and so i will wash my face again before i go to bed and apply differin ... wont that increase my acne or oily skin? cause ill be washing 3-4 times .. twice will be only water and other 2 times with my product..
