Swimming Is Best Exercise For Acne!!

I find swimming is best exercise for not causing acne, as you dont sweat that much when you're swimming and the chlorine will clenase you're body of any sweat and bacteria any how.
any how if you have bad acne the chroline could make it break out, but saying that if you stuck with it it could clear up

Re: Swimming Is Best Exercise For Acne!!

My cousin swam in high school and the chlorine really aggravated her acne. I think if you already have acne, chlorine won't help but it may prevent acne.

Re: Swimming Is Best Exercise For Acne!!

Let us know how it turns out. It could also depend on the type of acne. My cousin had cystic acne which is hard to control regardless of swimming. It cleared up after high school but I don't know if it's because she stopped swimming or whether it just ran its course.

I sweat horribly when I swim laps.
