    I've been trying to find it for years. I'm very curious to know are masturbation and acne interrelated? Before my teenage, I had no spots on my face. But as I started masturbating from teenage, acne has increased very much. Is it due to masturbation or any hormone or anything else?

    I think it can mess with your hormones and yes, trickle down and worsen your acne.

    I had bad acne during my teenage years, and even up until last year (I'm 24 now) and I believe a lot of it was related to PMO. I did take accutane last year which was the only thing that would work for me. I dont break out at all anymore, but I also dont beat off 5 times a day anymore either.

    Get in touch with a dermatologist and ask about accutane. Its rough, but it works!

    From my own anecdotal experience I'd say that they are related. Although you'll get acne nonetheless. Stop jerking and you'll get magical radiant skin

    Agreed.

    They have multiple videos on YouTube with people (Male and female) that stopped fapping, showing how their skin improved over 90, 180, etc. days.

    Pretty crazy how PMO makes you "feel good" in the moment but has so many negative effects on your body, mind, and spirit.

    Not everyone is the same man.

    Just like not everyone gets cancer from smoking, but smoking is linked to cancer.

    Correlation does not equal causation, but I'm sure there is a bit of a positive correlation between the two.

    It's just due to the increase of hormones in your teenage years. Nothing more. If it really bothers you, it's best to contact a dermatologist for a proper treatment.

    Well, I don't think they are. Your acne appeared at the same time you tried to masturbate, but acne is a normal and usual part of teenage, we can't escape that, which is not the case for masturbation. Correlation does not equate causation. From my own experience, I started getting acne and fapping at 13, but my acne disappeared at 18-19, though I kept masturbating regularly until 22.

    Change your diet too. Acne which could be affecting other areas of your body can be treated with natural fruit juices in blender. Smoothie type drinks. Grind and drink.

    Cut out junk. Crisps, coke and burgers. It’ll make a difference by a mile.

    Pmo can trigger acne. It’s in Chinese medicine textbooks apparently.

    About natural fruit juices : Not only are they healthy, they also taste really good. Consuming them is a good idea anyway. However, I read somewhere that eating junk food, though unhealthy as a whole, does not necessarily cause acne, which you would get at teenage even with the healthiest diet imaginable.

    Definitely Yes. Before I have a lot of acne for real and that time I had the conclusion that it was because of PMO but I just ignore it. Until such time I found out that it really was the reason behind my acnes. Now that I am 18 my acnes are gradually disappearing because of nofap. I love nofap now.

    The acne scars are sucks.

    @a.b.c_starboy Dude you don’t know how much freaking research i’ve done into this. PM me if you want links of evidence. i have at least like 100 testimonies of people who had masturbation and acne correlation.

    this was my main motivation to do nofap at first. Secondly, NEVER take antibiotics for acne. I really hope you don’t because that will Ruin your gut and skin in the future. Actually taking accutane is much better than antibiotics as it has much less side effects from what i’ve heard and really works.

    But it’s best if you can cure your acne naturally through nofap. So before putting anything in your body, do nofap at least like 2-3 months. for me it took even longer than that to clear like 5-6 months

    I had a lot of acne, but that just went away when I got older. In my case it wasn't correlated to PMO.

    I am a 15 year old despite my DOB on my profile with A LOT of acne. I have been doing NoFap/Cold showers for the past 8 days and my acne hasn't improved. However my skin is a lot softer.
