soooo im still in highschool and have had mild/moderate acne for some time now.

Im on my highschool's water polo team and ive noticed that after being in the pool like everyday swimming, that the chlorine has helped my acne out! I dunno what it is really but I notice it dries my skin out and gets rid of redness and reduces pimples. Now right now i know its too cold to swim but just giving some advice =) sooo i dunno in the summer when its hot out, dont hesitate to swim cause the chlorine helped me out.

but actually right now im just about all clear from using:

1. clean n clear 10% bp

2. oxy 2% sa

my list is prettttty easy and it works for me =)

hoped this helped....

Yup I also found out that everytime after I finish swimming, my skin looks much better overall.

Some might think the chlorine actually worsens their acne? I don't know.

The Chlorine does a wonderful in like drying up your skin and stuff. Some people with sensitive skin have a bad reaction, but most people I know have a positive reaction.

weird, cuz I just stopped using tap water on my face (which is stlightly chlornated i think) and my face finally started to clear up. Maybe there's a mineral in my water that's exacerbating my skin.
