Bad skin since gyming

I used to have clear skin, then I started to gym. My forehead has been breaking out in pimples and is rough and bumpy. This always happens when I gym. Why? It has been 4 weeks now.

Hi Maria

Not 100% sure, I must confess...I can only think that it may have to do with sweat and dirt clogging the pores, or some gland response. It's not my area of expertise, however - this is not so much an exercise question and skin care one with exercise as a catalyst, so perhaps this is best submitted to that expert. I have a feeling, however, that the problem has to do with sweat glands and pores.

Good luck
