Acne is typically associated with puberty. And as an adult, you certainly don't miss those days. But, you might find as an adult who exercises regularly that acne seems to be a side effect. Going to the gym is meant to boost your health both physically as well as mentally, but acne? Who asked for that? If you're experiencing breakouts, you're not alone. There are ways to deal with it, however. Too much sweat can clog pores and cause breakouts, never mind how wiping off the sweat causes a transfer of oil and bacteria to the skin, which can also cause flare-ups. [bctt tweet="4 Ways to Prevent Acne From Exercise"] New York Dermatologist, Dr. Jeremy Fenton of the Schweiger Dermatology Group, provides four tips for preventing exercise acne.
  1. Shower as soon as possible. This will prevent sweat from mixing with dead skin cells that cause clogged pores. No time to shower? Use a medicated pad with salicylic or glycolic acid.
  2. Make sure you're using the right body wash. Opt for either an antibacterial or anti-acne wash that has benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. If you're using benzoyl peroxide wash, allow the medication to sink in by letting it sit on your skin for a minute.
  3. Exfoliate often. This will keep dead skin cells from building up. There are scrubs, brushes and even wash clothes.
  4. Opt for clothing that breathes. Loose-fitting, cotton options are the best, since together synthetic materials trap sweat and dirt in, which just clogs the pores.
