So, nothing needs to be done after sweating?

Recommended Posts

I jog 5 or 6 days a week and get kinda sweaty... I can't really wipe it off because it dries off on the way back to my house. But since sweat doesn't affect acne, I don't have to shower (and ruin the morning regimen as a result), right?

I jog three times a day too, usually when the sun goes down. You can do two things.

1. Instead of doing your regimen before your jog, do it after. That way, you dont have to wash your face too much which can lead to more breakouts.

2. Do your jog at night when the weather is much cooler. Grab a towel and just pat your face if you do start to sweat. Or go home and rinse with water and moisturizer.

I think its necessary to wash your face after you have sweated. Yes, sweat doesnt affect acne but leaving dried sweat on your skin is dirty and it might clog your pores. The process of sweating should not affect acne.
