It’s a natural anti-depressant and helps you lose weight. It’s also a fantastic way to get glowing, beautiful skin.

It’s exercise!

acne and exercise I think we can all agree that exercise is a crucial part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Not only is it great for keeping your body fit, but it also boosts circulation and promotes a luminous glow in the skin. What could be more amazing?!

On the flipside, sweat is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria… and bacteria can lead to acne breakouts. This explains why you might experience more body acne after starting a more intense workout regimen OR when you’ve worn non-breathable fabric.

The key to preventing the acne-and-exercise cycle is to properly cleanse the skin immediately after exercising. A quick splash of water won’t cut it. Make sure you choose a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer that are right for your skin type:

Dry Skin

Orange Cleansing SoapGlycolic Acid Toner, and Hydrating Moisturizer with Biocare & Hyaluronic Acid

Oily Skin

Botanical Facial GelSpecial Cucumber Cleansing Lotion and Oil-Free Moisturizer

Combination/Oily Skin

Enzyme Cleansing GelCucumber Cleansing Lotion, and A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer
