working out at the gym

Recommended Posts

ive been working out at the gym recently and my acnes gotten quite a bit worse. it seems to have worsened in the corners of my forehead. everywehre else seems to be alright. i use a towel to wipe off the sweat as i go i think it helps but not sure. i also go swimming after cause i think the chlorine helps with the acne. and then i take a quick shower but dont wash my face. im doing pretty much all i can do but it still seems to get worse. any suggestions? thanks

Do you use any product in your hair? Perhaps it's not the sweat, per se, it's the mix of sweat and a hair product that's causing your problem.

Perhaps you should rinse off before you start your workout. Most places ask that you rinse off before you get in the pool, but if you rinse once before you work out at all and then again before you get in the pool, even if you're not washing completely, that'd probably be an improvement.

Its good to drink a vitamin drink after working out since you lose a lot during the workout...especially swimming. do u put lotion on ur face?

nah i dont put any lotion on. but in regards to my hair. i just use some shampoo the one you get from costco. not sure if that has anything to do with it. ill try rinsing off before. what vitamin drink would you suggest? something with zinc?

its good to put lotion (for dry skin) after you wash your face. you should definitely drink water or sports drink that has vitamin C in it. I dont know whats good in the US cuz ive never lived there but mos of the drink sold in the US looks very unhealthy and fattening. no wonder 2 in every 3 ppl are fucking fat in america.

I've never heard anyone get that upset over drinks in another country.
