  1. I have a question: I have been on the Regimen for a few days and am already seeing amazing results. However, I exercise in the afternoons. How should this affect my cleansing routine? Should I cleanse again after I workout? If I cleanse, should I apply treatment as well? I am not wearing any make-up during the day, at least not until I have consistently clear skin. Thanks for the help!
  2. i've read that high cortisol levels can cause acne :/ i've been working out a lot lately and now my acne has flared up, i suspect this is the reason. any suggestions?
  3. I was on the Regimen for a while and then stopped using it. I am curious about going back on it because my face is struggling. But first, I need help with the reasons I stopped using it. 1. I work out every day in the middle of the day. I can't figure out how to make this work with the regimen. Tried using it three times a day, which felt like a waste and like it was over-drying my skin. Tried waiting until after I worked out to apply it but then there weren't 8 hours between the two applic
  4. I didn't have acne until I was a Junior in high school so I was about 15, now at 18 and in college my acne still hasn't gone away. Unlike most people I went to a dermatologist right away and he gave me topical erythromycin and told me to come back in a year. That cream did nothing. I went back to my next appointment and he gave me pills of erythromycin and again nothing, it did get a bit better though. I went back two months later and he gave me doxycycline it's been about two weeks now and it s
  5. How Exercise Might Help with Acne

    There is no direct scientific evidence indicating what effect exercise has on acne. However, indirect evidence suggests that, in general, exercise does not make acne worse and in fact may be beneficial. Let's have a look at some of the ways exercise might help with acne-related issues. Exercise and Wound Healing Acne lesions are wounds. Wound healing is especially relevant for acne since acne is primarily an inflammatory disease, and inflammation can prevent acne lesions from healing...
  6. Hi Everyone, I am new on this site. Please forgive me if I make any errors. I would like to share my acne story. Who knows maybe someone can help me! I am a 26 year old male and recently, I decided to live a healthier lifestyle. I eat clean (moderate carbs,loads of veggies), do not smoke or drink and workout 4-5 times a week including cardio. I have lost a tremendous amount of weight, 18 kgs to be exact. I feel great! However, I have noticed an insane amount of breakouts every time I wor
  7. I've noticed that my skin reacts by breaking out whenever I've been taking whey protein/mass gainer supplements for awhile so I've cut that out. Tried to replace my post workout nutrition with soy milk but have noticed very small breakouts too. Anyone else here who works out/bodybuild can point me in the direction of other easy to consume protein sources that are less likely to cause breakouts?
  8. Just been to the gym for an hour cardio and while i was in there and when i came out my skin on my face was really stinging from all the sweat its calmed down now but still feeling a bit sensitive. Just wondered if anyone else had had stinging skin from sweating while on accutane ?
  9. Hey guys, before I had acne I used to hit the gym almost everyday, and take shakes (phD Whey Protein) everyday. I used to drink a lot of milk just generally - I love cold milk I have no idea why - and I would mix it with my protein powder. My diet wasn't very 'acne-friendly', I would eat a lot of eggs and chicken (hormones everywhere ) and the whey which I consumed had IGF-1 (which correlates with sebum production) so as soon as my acne got worse I had to stop eating those foods in excess and
  10. Hi there! I have recently started looking into gaining weight and using diet to cure my acne, two things that do not mix well... I work out quite a lot, about 5-6 times a week and my struggle atm is getting enough carbs. The things I'm cutting out are anything with gluten, dairy or a lot of added sugar. Also potatoes.. But simply cause I don't like them, haha. The only typical carby things I'm eating atm are oatmeal and quinoa. I find it hard to make interesting meals with just these two thin
  11. Hello, I am a 22 year-old female (generally have oily skin), and I've been experiencing severe acne. I've struggled with acne ever since I was 14, and it has mainly been caused by genetics. It use to be so severe, I've been through 2 dermatologist and numerous serums and creams. At 16, I finally found a dermatologist who has helped me immensely, and my acne went from terrible, to miraculously gone. Currently, I have been exercising 6 days a week, and have been following a healthy diet.
  12. I'm a 35 year old male. For the last 2 years, I have started going to the gym, and swimming, 2-3 times per week. I've always been prone to mild acne, but during this time I've noticed a big increase in the amount of acne I'm getting. I take hygiene seriously and usually wash my face before I work out, and always shower at the gym straight after. So, what's going on? I don't think it's necessarily a sweat/pore issue, but I'm starting to think that the hormones I'm releasing through exercise a
  13. so my acne has not been a big deal for awhile, but recently i've started to do heavy workouts everyday (was working out before just not as strenuous and not everyday) and now my skin is breaking out like it used to when i was a young teenager (I'm 21) ... this is really discouraging...and i do take very good care of my skin (despite my minor picking problem i've been working on curbing) i also eat very healthy (i'm a vegetarian and i eat all natural)... does anyone have any tips for this particu
