Hey guys. Could you tell me more about M and acne? Are they related?
I'm not sure there is any proven, direct correlation. There is some good general advice here though: Tips on managing my acne through NoFap?
I think they are related, at least indirectly. Whenever I stopped masturbating for longer periods if time my face would clear up. When I would masturbate, whiteheads would pop up all over my face for the next two days. I guess it has something to do with how sensitive your body is to hormonal changes.
Yeah, that's what I meant, since everything in your body is related why wouldn't this be too?
There is a relation between M and acne I was M free for 34 days during this period my acne and pimples reduced to minimum which I noticed and my relatives also said after meeting me after 2 months.
Although I didn't have any acne at all, I can say my skin looks better from nofap.
@rigel08 Yeah I think you're right. There may be an indirect connection here... it could be decrease in stress or many factors, god knows..
Isn't it unusual to get acne at your age @Amit shah? It must be embarrassing for your relatives to comment on such a thing?
Looking at @Amit shah's age stated (24) I think it's still kind of reasonable to get acne. I think anything above late-20's is when it becomes unusual. However, I have a cousin who is nearly 40 and still gets full on - 15 year old style acne and it's never settled down. I don't know what causes this. Bad hygiene, hormone imbalance, bad diet? -- I had bad acne up until the age of 16 and the only think that killed it were a series of tablets and injections. I still have very visible scars on my face and chest.
Damn, that's pants, man. Never had it myself.
When the confidence benefit kicks in you wont care so much your acne.
I think there is a correlation.
You'll probably see results.
I hope you do, I know how hard having acne is.
For what it's worth, I've noticed benefits. Although I'm in my 40's I still have spotty skin, although it's nothing like the problem I had in my teens / early twenties. And unless I have a bad outbreak, it doesn't really bother me anymore. But I have noticed that avoiding PMO, along with my lifestyle changes (cold showers / better diet / exercise ) have all helped contribute to better skin. I also used to get stress related (I think) exema on my hands, which has cleared up. Unscientific, I know, but my personal experience.
It sure is. For every relapse I've had or even close edging, I've always gotten a pimple or a few whitehead the next few days. I'm more than 2 weeks in and my face is 100% clean.
Doctors would surely tell me that there's no connection or nothing that links directly, that's why I never listen to their bullshit. One doctor tells this, the other that..
You and I are the proof.
From what I understand Acne is a virus. I know when I was a kid with it when got sick and was treated with medicine my face cleared up. Now never self medicate, if yours is bad see a doctor, they can, correctly treat you. Getting a mild sun tan also seems to clear up acne. Mine vanished right before I turned 15 and never came back.
You are simply lucky. Doctors don't have a clue what they are doing when it comes to acne. Just lucky thats all.
