The perspiration can lead to clogging the skin’s pores which can immediately result in body acne. This is a common problem among athletes as well as weight lifters alike. So, what do you do about this problem if you are dealing with regularly?

Well, it is certainly better to continue weigh lifting rather than quit altogether. The benefits of exercise have been proven many times and you should not quite because of the body acne you are experiencing.

There are some things you can do help prevent the perspiration from directly contacting your skin and one of the best is to wear proper clothing when exercising.
