    Yes as long as you have a good wash after it, as a lot of sweat can go into the pores. If you want to get rid of acne it's usually your diet. What are you eating?

    5 fruits and veg a day, plenty of water, regular cups of tea and honey for sugar substitute gets rid of them. I find that chocolate, crisps and buscuits give me acne.

    Its down to hormones.

    The most you can really do is wash your face thoroughly in the morning and the evening to get rid of any dirt etc.

    If it's really bad you can go to the doctors for treatment, but tbh, you'll probably grown out of it by the time ure in ure early 20's, so dont worry too much.

    i once heard that yeast pills are a good remedy against acne
    don't know for sure whether there's any truth in it though

    Yes. but you need to wash all the sweat off afterwards then use an astringent or another way to close the pores maybe cold water will work even though tap water is bad to wash in because all the chemicals that are in it, absorb alot better after you have dissipated all your natural oils in the sauna and shower, probably more than you need to know lol.
