Yes Working Out Can Cause Acne

Many of our clients are concerned that their active lifestyle contributes to their acne symptoms. We are often asked, does working out cause acne? Though there are many ways that we can minimize acne symptoms, working out can in fact cause acne. There are a variety of reasons why working out can cause acne but in essence, working out can contribute to an increase of oil on the skin which can clog hair follicles and cause acne.

What Causes Acne

Working out in itself does not cause acne. Acne is caused by the hair follicles on our skin becoming clogged with oil or dead skin. This can be aggravated by an increase of oil on your skin from working out. There are many other factors that may cause the development of acne.

There is no need to give up working out when looking to reduce acne symptoms. Before making drastic changes consider that stress, hormone changes, medication and for some people diet can all contribute to acne production.

Consider speaking contacting our Acne Clinic to help you get the big picture on your acne symptoms. Though working out could cause acne, working out can also reduce stress which is a factor for acne development. It may not be a good idea to make drastic changes.

Acne Treatment

There are many ways to treat acne at home. For those suffering from mild to severe acne, at home treatments may not always be effective. Acne is stubborn and you are not alone with having difficulty with treating it.
