Can Masturbation Make Acne Worse?

Recommended Posts

Hello! This is the first time I post here. I have some questions: Can masturbation make acne worse in male? I've read a lot of comments about this issue, some say yes, some say no. I am a 21-year-old male, now has mild acne and I masturbate once a week.Is my acne would decrease if I masturbate less? ( once every 2 weeks or more?)

Thanks :)

Masturbation\sex doesn't make acne worse, it CAUSES acne in the first place and then makes it worse if you continue excessively ejaculating.

Your acne wont decrease if you reduce your frequency from once a week to once every 2 weeks, but it will decrease if you will decrease your frequency to once every 2 month or longer.

Take clean 30 days now, you will see how your face gets better[and oil is reduced], this will give you motivation to keep going.

I would like to see Usar718's evidence. Sounds like an Old Wives' Tale. It flies in the face of scientific research about masturbation (pardon the pun). I already talked about this issue on another post. Abstinence for seven days leads to higher testosterone levels. From this, we could imply more acne if you abstain, unless you nip it in the bud (again pardon the pun), before that. Better in an loving relationship though, what with the Oxytocin benefits and so on.

Google the 2003 "Research on the relationship between ejaculation and serum testosterone level in men" by Zhejiang University in China. Eye opening

Testosterone doesn't cause acne. its dehydrotestosterone.

Testosterone is converted to 3 hormones, estrogen, dehydrotestosterone and the rest that remains flows in the body as "free testosterone".

Orgasm causes testosterone to be converted to DHT.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2549675/

"Serum dihydrotestosterone concentration was the only independent hormonal predictor of the frequency of orgasms; an increase in concentration of 1.36 nmol/l (about 2 SD) corresponded to an average increase of one orgasm a week."

Excessive ejaculation>excessive DHT>acne in genetically sensitive people to DHT(some go bald as a side effect instead of acne).

Mustarbation worsen the acnes, it is a vary bad practice for the person having acnes. But, it is too difficultfor me to control my hands. Because, I mustarbate my acnes with my hands and as a result, it becomes worsen.

I don't think you're supposed to masturbate your acne.

There are many causes of acne and pimple breakouts. One of the major factors is actually often overlooked - an imbalance within the endocrine system that is caused by to much or frequent masturbation or ejaculation. Maintaining an appealing appearance is a critical part of sexual attraction so make sure you have proper skin care regimen which is basically cleansing, toning and moisturizing.

It seems the evidence is super weak that there is a directly relationship between masterbation and acne. Excessive or porn based masterbation is a completely seperate set of issues. I'd focus your attention on the methods and procedures of getting control of acne as described on this site.
