I have been on accutane for about 3months now. I weigh 180 and have been on 40mg a day twice a day. Slowly getting better. I want to know how many people have noticed working out helping them clear up better?
First off, when I was on Accutane I was told that I couldnít lift weights. That might be something you want to check with your dermatologist about. But as far as working out and acne, I donít think that it could actually make your acne better. If anything it will make it worse. I have heard that working out can make your acne worse because of what it does to your hormones, but a lot of people work out with acne and are fine. So I donít really know if it does make it worse, but I donít think it could make it better.

Yes, weight training increases oil, by the way of more testosterone. As for you, going on 3 months, im sure its the accutane clearing you bud. You cannot create oil if there are no more glands. Glad to hear its working for you.


How tall are you? Age? Type of acne? Severity? Did you ask for accutane or put on it?

Thanks...

I am getting insurance in about a month, and want to go straight for accutane, because im tired of the oil, cysts and pimples. I can't eat cheese anymore, which is on pretty much EVERYTHING, my cysts left with the cheese, so im happy with that. I have stopped working out due to the oil production, so i want to just take accutane to fix my problem, instead of hiding it with topicals and whatnot. Thanks...please inform me on those ??'s Thanks again.
Weight lifting does raise testosterone, so it might make acne worse. However, lifting weights relieves stress, so it might make acne better.
it can also make you sweat, thus opening your pores..........I guess it has it's pros and cons
From years of anecdotal feedback as a weightlifter, the rule is generally: if you drink a lot of water and wash your face immediately after the workout, you will be doing more good than harm. If not, than you will be doing more harm than good. Simple as that. Test levels dont fluctuate that much by weight training.
5-9 tall, cyst, moderate, I was put on accutane because I was given:

Minocin
Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Wash
Retina-A at night

This combination did great for me for the whole time that I was on it. But after about a year and 1/2 my doctor said that I had been on it for too long and I had to get off of it. After about 2 months I started to break out again, that's how accutane came into the picture. I figured that if/when I work out that would be better off for me in the long run. I am thinking about sticking with it for about a month and see what happens, I'm on my 3rd month now and only have about 3 pimples but it still feels like crap. Anyway I am starting to see results and I really need to stay in the gym. I might stop lifting weights and just doing a whole lot of laps in the pool to be fit instead of strong/cut.

I am also cutting out a lot of foods right now in an effort to stay healthy/clear all I really eat now is chicken, vegetables, salads, fruits. When I get off of accutane GOD willing everything goes well I am going to stay in the gym eat well and take my vitamins.

That's another thing this skin disorder has gotten me closer to GOD!

Its the breakdown of the muscle that causes the oil. Which happens days after the session.
