Does Sweat Cause Acne?

So, does sweat cause acne? Working up a sweat at the gym or on the field is great. Go you! But, what’s not so great are those post-workout pimples that might be popping up on your face, chest, and back.

While exercise is definitely good for you, the salts in sweat can irritate the skin and worsen breakouts.

The good news! We, at Clearasil®, have got your back so you can get sweaty without getting breakouts. Literally. And, your face for that matter. With these super-easy steps, you can head right out to the field and score the winning touchdown or nail that new cheerleading routine… all without a blemish worry in the world.

Post-workout, make sure your pores remain clean as can be. If you can’t hit the showers right away, try new Clearasil Ultra® On-the-Go Rapid Action Wipes with 2% salicylic acid. This known acne fighter helps get rid of existing pimples, and it can also help prevent new ones from forming. Just sweep one of these freshly-scented wipes across face, chest, back and neck. It will work quickly to clear pores and remove dirt, sweat, and make-up.

So, get out there and go get ‘em!
