How does Sweating Affect Acne?
The good new is sweating will not cause Acne. Acne is really caused by too many dead skin cells shedding too fast inside the pore and the body can not get rid of those cells fast enough. This is a genetic thing, not something bad you might be doing. There is a name for it “retention hyperkeratosis”. But if it seems your skin gets small bumps under the skin after working out, it might be something called “folliculitis”. This is an infection of the hair follicle caused by yeast.
How is this different from Acne? These bumps will come and go. They can be red, small and itchy. Normally they will appear on the forehead and chest. If you think you are dealing with this, a good mandelic serum and wash can be a simple answer. At skin Care by Robyn I have products that can help clear folliculitis.
