My pores have been exposed to many things over the course of my years as an athlete. I have always had acne, maybe a pimple here or red spot there. But nothing big, until recent. I am a runner, which means basically I sweat, alot and my pores are the first to suffer from all the sweat. But what I do to help clear my skin has worked so well for me. First, I stay hydrated. As a runner, hydration is important and it also helps your skin. Next, I was my face three times daily. In the morning with a regular cleanser BEFORE I do my hair at all, you don't want to be touching gel and things and then cleaning your face. Then I go about my day and wash all my make up off before I do my work outs. Make up clogs pores and can mix with sweat to just make it pure hell for your skin. Then when I get out of the shower, before touching my hair, I wash my face again with a cleanser. Twice a week, but not two days next to each other, like Tuesday and Friday, I use my homemade remedy which has helped significantly. What I do is I mix lemon juice, you can use fresh but I use already made, oatmeal, any kind, I use the apple cinnamon simply because no one in my house likes it, and sugar. Yes. Sugar. It works as an exfoliator. I leave this on my face for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water. I know it sounds gross to have outmeal sticking to your face but it's helped for me and hopefully for you. When my skin is clear, I just do my regular washing and don't exfoliate as much, maybe once every two weeks. I really hope this helps you as it's brought me so many compliments and more importantly, made me feel beautiful

Sweating actually helps get rid of acne. It only works if you drink lots of water though, so drink a lot and sweat more!! Then that should help to clear up your face:)
