I have mild chest acne and my car doesn't have A/C. Sometimes on the way to work on a hot day, I sweat a lot. Is that bad?

It's only bad if you don't clean the sweat off as several types of body fungus feed off the sweat to create skin irritations including acne. Same thing goes for dandruff.

Working out has nothing to do with acne. That is some worthless advice you gave Mikee. I guess everyone with acne or body acne should just sit in their rooms air-conditioned and go through muscle atrophy.

Case closed.

Sitting there and sweating yes, but i've found when i sweat from exercising and let me skin dry up(3-4 hours) before i take a shower, my acne is much better the next day. It's differn't for everyone, so just run a trial and see if it effects you
