not that im running anymore. (atm anyway - [she tells herself])

i have a friend who said her mum did and she went to her gp and got a prescription for it... i just wanted to know more about it as my weak google-fu skillz are not throwing anything up.

"Got" spotty surely.
Try exfoliating to get the sweat out?

hah, dodgy grammar in title draws people in even if the subject matter doesn't ;)

but yy, washing before and after and regular exfoliating and all that jazz done... but there always seems more 'stuff' to fill pores behind it.

I'm sure I read something about your testosterone increasing. Or maybe it was decreasing? Or maybe I just made that up

I found my skin cleared when I started to run. I guess make sure you cleanse thoroughly afterwards to remove sweat?

Agree with above. Cleanse face before running and exfoliate after.
