Hi lazloe ,

I know your pain too well, for me any sexual activity results in increased oil and acne. For some people sexual activity increased in above-normal testosterone production and the result is more oil and more acne.
I remember having to plan ahead to when i was going to have sex. Dont waste your time with any anitibiotics, they work fine at the beginning but lose their effectiveness and then only harm the body.

What I did to solve my problem was B5(pantothenic acid),exfoliation,eating healthier, and exercise. For myself, B5 was a godsend. I saw immediate results from it 2-3 days after I started taking it. Now I take 1-2g per day and on days when I am expecting sexual activity I up the dose to about 6-8g per day. You can experiment and see how much you actually need to control the oil production on those days(do a search in this forum on B5, you'll find lots of information). I also use a facial bar soap exfoliator, a papaya enzyme formula. It really exfoliates and I notice it helps keeps my pores clean and greatly reduces any sebum buildup. I notice this bar soap works much better than any BP or salicylic acid face washes Ive used in the past. And to top it off I try to avoid fast food and processed foods as much as I can and try eat more fruits and veggies. Not to mention a good exercise routine. I've been trying to eat healthy and exercise ever since acne came into my life but only saw the major improvements once I started B5 and exfoliating. But good food and exercise can only do the body good so it must be included in any routine.

lazloe good luck, dont worry you can beat it, just find a routine that works for you

Thank you, that was very reassuring and heart warming. I've one huge problem right now, and that is that I'm a wrestler. Wrestling, with the face-to-matt grinding, the head hitting, the crossfaces, etc is probably the worst thing I'm doing right now for my skin, but hey, I love the sport. As soon as wrestling ends (end of february) I'll be so happy.

B5, a vitamin, I guess? Thanks for the help. :)

Hi Lazloe,

NO problem, glad to help, if i can control my acne now, you definitely can. As for being a wrestler, that should be no problem. All you need to do is to be able to remove any oil/sebum deposits on your face. Especially after such activities as wrestling, or even just a regular sweaty workout. Make sure you find a good exfoliating product. Ive experimented with numerous products, from scrubs to AHA and BHA face washes, but the best results for me came from an exfoliating bar soap containing papaya enzymes. There are similar bar soaps commonly labeled as whitening soaps, I think those should work just as well since they provide the same level of exfoliating.

sex is one of lifes pleasures, dont let anything deny you of it.
