Not washing doesn't cause cystic acne. 

 

You obviously do not want to pick at it, but touching it won't do anything to it (i.e. if it itches, grab a tissue paper and hold your finger on it until the itchyness subsides). Just do not pop it.

Duely noted, and do you know anything about the healing fo it? Just let it be or what?


In Topic: Does Working Out Cause Acne?

I have this question, does working out really cause acne..?

I noticed a week without the gym I didn't even break out really, and now I fear going back to keep my face clear.

I go to the gym directly after school at 2:30 and then I lleave the gym at 5:00 and get home at 6 and shower immediately.

I do not wipe my face nor touch nor wash it at the gym, I leave it as is. I also apply clean n clear 3-in-1 advantage cleanser in the morning, so is that meddling with my face if I workout?

I need answers please, does working out with clean n clear in my face cause acne or what..!!!


I really don't think that exercising causes acne, I'm pretty sure it helps it. I never had acne during track season, and these were 3-4 hour long intense workouts. I think my profuse sweating cleansed my pores. Exercising reduces stress and keeps your body healthy. It must be some other factor that is causing your breakouts. Your 6:00 shower, is it a long, hot shower? Are your moisturizing afterwards properly? I have a similar schedule, and I shower around 6:00 every day. As soon as I step out of the shower I wash my face with my cleanser while my pores are open, then wait a bit for my pores to close, and moisturize.

Yeah, all my showers are kind of long and hot and get hotter. As soon as I get out, I splash hot water on my face, put on the cleanser, then instantly put cold water and dry my face. Is this right?

So your break outs increased when you began body building?  Also it can take longer than 2 months to recover from long periods of poor eating habits.


They began when I was 15, they weren't mild/severe/moderate. Just like one here and there, but it would be like one comes out, heals, and another pops out. It wasn't big, just smalls tuff. Then it started going a lil worse and I went to the derma 1-2 yeras ago and he gave me topical gel, told me to use it the wrong way as well and I think it made my face way worse and the way it is now, breaking out. I have like 10 acne marks, and another one pops out each week after my face finally seems clear, its never ending. I started bodybuilding 5-6 months ago. But I noticed, when I do cardio for like 20-25 minutes after the day, I go home and seems my acne gets worse. I spent a week no gym, and my face got better, but I went back 2day and I got a pimple.
