Do masturbation cause acne?
According to studies, there is no effect of masturbation on face or skin. For most of people, masturbation is healthy and does not create any acne and pimple problem to them.
Well, everybody has a different reaction to masturbation and sex. Masturbation triggers the hormones balance in the body. But it is small if it is in average.
Effect of masturbation on testosterone
As I said, there is no relationship between masturbation and acne. But we can say that there is a relation between the masturbation and testosterone levels.
Masturbation increases the male hormone in the body. It increases regardless of the masturbation. Like, if you are watching some adult video or feel erotic, it leads to the secretion of male hormones.
The secretion of male hormone, testosterone is common and a regular and average limit of masturbation session does not secrete enough testosterone to cause pimple. A frequent masturbation does.
Male hormones such as testosterone increase. The secretion of sebum also increases in proportion. Sebum is oily secretion from the glands that leads to oily skin and acne.
If a male masturbates frequently, sperm is released every day. At this situation, the body prepared more sperm and amount of testosterone secreted increases for the production of sperm. Large testosterone level, a large amount of sebum is produced, which makes it easy for acne to occur naturally. That how masturbation work for testosterone and testosterone work for pimples.
What really causes acne?
Puberty can be a reason for acne. During puberty stages, the male body produces a large amount of testosterone and other androgens. It is common for all, either men or women.
In adolescence, #acne is usually caused by an increase in androgens such as testosterone, which occurs during puberty, regardless of sex.

During the puberty stage, men face acne problem due to an imbalance of masturbation. Puberty is not the onset of acne but it is first experiences with masturbation. That why people starting link puberty to the masturbation.
Clogged pores are all the reason for acne. Sometimes dead skin or dirt trap in the skin pores and cause acne and pimples.
How to get rid of masturbation pimples and acne?
Acne is not a side effect of masturbation on face. If you still think so, you can stop masturbation for at least two months and see what happens.
If you observe that your existing pimples disappear and new pimples may not come, then well done it works for you. If no, then eventually you have to believe that there is no side effect of masturbation.
Now, comes to acne. How you can rid of masturbation pimples? Well, I am suggesting to start the daily acne-fighting routine that removes excess.
Drink plenty of water
To hydrate, the body is good for blood circulation and treat to overcome the acne.
Wash face twice a day
Wash your skin in the morning as well as at night. To clean your skin pores reduce the new acne buildup. Make sure to clean your face to remove the dirt. You can use a mild face wash for sensitive skin.
Wash face after masturbation
Masturbation is a kind of exercise and makes you sweat. It is good to wash the face after masturbation. Do not feel lazy. An oil and sweaty face caught dirty and lead to pimples.
Masturbate at a fixed time and fixed day of cycle.
It is good for you to keep a cycle of masturbation. Likewise, your body gets comfortable with your hormone imbalance. It is up to you, when you feel more arouse and when you feel relax. But remember try to keep it regular limit.
Try OTC treatment
Some men find OTC (Over the Counter) effective for the acne. If your acne is mild, you will definitely improve by it. Just make sure you get one with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.
Adding benzoyl peroxide to topical retinoid keeps the retinoid from losing effectiveness. Both now available OTC. Great place to start acne treatment. #AAP18
