Reduced BMI= reduced acne?

Has anyone else noticed that losing weight makes their skin better? I've been working my butt off at the gym and eating right and took off 18 pounds and what a difference it has made in my face! I don't even use concealer anymore except for undereye circles. Has anyone else noticed this, or am I just crazy?

Exercising has long been known to improve skin health. All that blood moving through your body helps remove toxins and the additional oxygen that is provided to your cells helps them work better. Plus the healthy eating provides many nutrients to nourish your skin.

 

The only thing to watch out for (which you are obviously doing) is to make sure that you get the perspiration off your skin promptly so you don't get bacne and cause skin flareups. The extra oil and perspiration that happens when you exercise are good breeding grounds for bacteria.

 

Congrats on the hard work that you have put in to lose 18 pounds and improve your body!
