Hormonal Acne And Lifting Weights

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone this is my first post so I hope it's in the right area.

I've been breaking out for the better part of two years now and I think it's hormonal related. I started working out 4-5 days a week (nothing crazy) and I've been taking creatine powder, protein powder plus a pre-workout powder. The timing seems way to convenient for it to be a coincidence and besides it's only around my chin, mouth and jaw line which I read is where hormonal acne in men appears.

I've had breakouts in the past but lately they don't seem to be going away. I tried exposed skin care regime, I'm now 4.5 weeks in and I'm not getting the results I want or the results promoted by the website.

My questions are these:

Has anyone else had this problem? If so what did you do?

How can I counteract my hormonal imbalance?

Has anyone tried exposed skin care? If so what did they think?

Any information, hints or general advice would be greatly appreciated.

A lot of those protein shakes can cause/exacerbate acne. They are my worst dietary trigger.

Whey protein is the worst killer. It's just too hard to digest, and your skin is at the end of this digestive process. Lots of resources online about this.
