Hi everyone,

So i swim quite alot, about 4 or 5 days a week, for an hour and a half each session.

I've got something called Diprobase cream from my doctor to put on before i swim.

I think it is supposed to make a barrier between the water and my face.

So i really don't know if swimming makes my acne worse,

Any suggestions or advice please? Or knowledge?


And some people saw swimming makes your acne clear :confused:

Well, water contains cholorine which may have different effects on different people im guessing..

for me, it doesnt do me good nor bad, my acne remains the same..

but i cleanse right after swimming because i dont enjoy the thought of a 6 year old letting go in the pool and well, the water comes in contact with your face (euw)

thats just my mentality :) you can try it if you want, its just my experience :D

Well i guess i don't wash my face really after swimming.

I don't usually get a chance to as showers are normally busy. i should as soon as i get home though i guess.
