NO, exercise does not. It is ACNE’s Worst Enemy.

Immune system

Regular exercise increases a persons immune system. It makes it stronger and more reactive. A strong immune system is great for fighting off any sort of infectious agent which wants to make a monkey of your pores and skin. If you have a strong immune system then the spots will disappear faster, and may not even sprout at all. A healthy immune system is able to make the skin a less hospitable place for acne. This means that acne attacks will not stick around for as long.


Sweat has a great way of flushing all of the muck and toxins out of your skin. Sweat glands are far more powerful than your oil glands. An oil gland may have trouble with a blockage, but a sweat glands will just push right through. Also, because it is water, it will move the bacteria and dirt away from the affected pores. It is also loaded with your bodies antibodies and salts, which have a score to settle with the bacteria on your skin. Your sweat also comes out sterile (just like your urine and tears).


Your sweat holds lots of salt. It is your bodies way of reducing the evaporation time of your sweat. If your sweat has salt in it, it will evaporate the salt faster and lower your body temperature faster. This salt is great at breaking down the plugs in your pores and is despised by skin parasites and bacteria. Sweat on your skin creates quite a few homeless parasites and bacteria.

Open pores

When you exercise you get hot. As your skin gets hot, the pores open so as to let more heat out faster. This opening is a great way for your sweat and oil glands to flush out your pores. This is why saunas are good for your skin too.

Better circulation

If you exercise regularly you will get better circulation. Your better circulation will improve your health in general. It will also help your immune system respond quicker and with more force. It will also help to remove the puss from your acne a lot faster. Good circulation also helps your skin stay more flexible and healthy, so that your are less likely to have acne.

Lymphatic system

Your lymphatic system is a bit network of see through veins in your body which carry lymph. This is a clear fluid which tries to filter out germs by getting them caught in its tubes and directed to lymph nodes which act like prisons for germs. The lymphatic system is not pumped around however, it only moves when you move, hence exercise helps get your juices pumping (literally).

A Shower

Once your exercise has flushed all of the germs and toxins out of the skin, you are forced to take a shower because you are dirty. This shower is a great way of waving goodbye to your acne causing dirt and germs.
