Sweat it out

I live in a sauna (Houston, Texas) and I think it is the reason why my acne flares up. In the winter I'm good, but once the humidity comes BAM got lots of acne.

Same here, except my sauna is called Tampa, FL. :P

Yea, open and expose them to the elements. Thats what happens with me. The steam always makes thing worse unless I have steam from a facial and they are treating the pores at that moment.

I think saunas just dry your skin out more and can actually aggrivate the acne. I used to go in all the time when I first got my acne, thinking it would open up the pores and let all the badness escape. But it did nothing other than make me look like a beetroot with very flaky skin.
