Everytime I work out and sweat I BREAK OUT!!

Recommended Posts

I love working out but I sweat quite a bit and even though I bring a towl, oxyclean my face and wash my face immediately after I STILL break out. This is just one day of 1 hour cardio session too b/c three days, forget my face is acne central!!

Any suggestions?

Why do I break out every time I work out?? And my face is pretty clear when I dont work out for a month or so...I dont get it. Pls help.

Change your workout time table to before your morning facewash or before your nighttime shower.

Bring a clean washed towel with you, pat dry, do not rub it against your skin.

The sweat gland does not connect with the pore so sweating shouldn't be the problem.

Sweating is actually good for you. Do not leave sweat on your face for more than an hour, bacteria eats on sweat.

You could time your workout around when you wash your face in the evening.

If that doesn't fit your schedule, instead of using a facial cleanser after a workout, you could splash cool water on your face and pat it dry.

Perhaps that extra facewash each day (at the gym) was irritating your skin.
