Rinsing Off in the shower

Ok, so, I wake up, have a shower in the morning, do the normal regimen routine, then during the day I will do some work around the house or something and sweat. i don't really want to have a full blown shower again because I don't want to overshower or mess up my routine, but do you think that just hopping in and rinsing off the sweat is beneficial?

even rinsing with just water can dry out your skin, which means you have to moisturize again, and so you're already doing half the regimen extra, and you might be causing extra irritation which can trigger breakouts.

but it's probably a good idea to clean off after sweating, so i always plan to do my sweaty activities right before showering. in the span of a few hours, i'll do housework, then go to the gym, then come straight home and shower. it works for me.

Really. I was always told not to moisturize by my ex-girlfriend because you want to dry up the acne? I haven't moisturized my body in a long time.........am I in trouble here?
