Does working out cause acne from sweating?

I work out (weight lifting) at my gym about 4-5 times a week could the sweat be the cause for acne breakouts?

Strangely enough I was actually wondering the same thing.

I think sweating a lot actually helps clean out your pores. however it's not good to let too much of the sweat dry on the skin (not bad for it, and the stuff that comes out of the pores should be cleaned off).

oh, so I googled 'sweat working out acne' (lol) and this website seemed like it's what I was saying

Acne-advice.com > Articles > Exercise

This seems like a good article (read the second to last paragraph)

i love the part where they always suggest to wear loose clothing.

there is no way that a sports bra can be loose. and i get breakouts along my sports bra lines.

i had a dermatologist tell me that part of it was my own skin turnover, so, the friction from the sports bra trapped the dead skin cells, coupled with the bacteria and viola!

definitely shower as soon as possible after working out. i also recommend a body wash designed for acne prone skin to use on your chest, shoulders and back.

this may sound a bit wierd, but when i get really sweaty after working out i just rinse my face off with cold water and then pat some of that anti-bacterial no-water-needed cleanser stuff wherever i used to break out (they have little dispensers of it all over my gym, im blanking out on what its called) it just dries the sweat up right away b/c of the alcohol, then i go home and take a shower.

no zits yet!

Acne is caused by blocked pores and bacteria. While you are still sweating, you should wash your face. Bra thing i dunno.
