The chlorine from the pool is very drying, so I guess if you swim in pools frequently it's possible it could aggravate your skin by over drying it, But I don't see how swimming could cause acne!

i never had a problem with swimming everyday during the summer, but we didn't have a lot of chlorine in the pool. you should only be able to just barely smell chlorine, if at all. if there is a strong chlorine smell, there is too much chlorine and possibly it might overdry your face.
