Cystic acne and workout

Cystic acne is caused by hormonal imbalances and toxicity in our body and it can start with an irritated stomach lining.  Eating excess carbs can lead to all those conditions, and your skin can be in better condition on low carb than ever before.

Another thing that can cause breakouts is excessive cardio exercise that leaves your body acidic.  That happens when you workout at high intensity and the lactic acid builds up in your body to toxic levels.  Depending on the strength of your lymphatic and endocrine systems, this toxicity can take many days to clear out.  Antioxidants like Vitamin C can help getting rid of cystic acne, but it is best to workout at lower intensities most of the time.

If you are a runner who likes to race, you can do speed work at higher intensities one day a week, but do not keep it up for extended periods – do it in intervals.  If you do not race, workout at lower intensities and you will burn more fats and also keep your body from building up toxins from excessive acid build up. Gentle exercise is so much better for your health when you have cystic acne problem. Pain and heaviness in the legs is a sign you are stressing your body. You would often get cystic acne breakouts when over-training and after intense efforts.  If you will work out more moderately the cystic acne might be minor.  Stay out of the mostly sugar burning zone in your workouts and that will probably help.

If you have a serious cystic acne problem, I would suggest that you will consult a professional dermatologist about proper cystic acne treatments over the long-term. And if you just have a pimple here and there, you can try some of the topical remedies.
