Pre workout/Acne?

  1. Pre workout/Acne?


    I've noticed my acne increased a bit while on the pre workout Napalm. I usually don't get acne this bad but I've stopped taking it. I was wondering if its ingredients it has that's causing it or if the stimulants? Just an idea. Thanks!


  2. only preworkout i saw an increase in acne in was Lit Up because it contained DAA. everything else has been fine for me

  3. Looks like the new napalm has DAA, which like R1balla, can cause acne in some users.

    IF you're looking for a pre-workout without DAA, I'd highly recommend Volatile by Fahrenheit Nutrition. It mixes and tastes great, has two forms of creatine, citrulline malate, and a moderate dose of caffeine.

  4. It has got DAA in it... Get some sort of acne treatment because it's a PWO... Strong as hell, but good...

    InterDerm is legit.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Good to know as I'm starting my DAA/Erase cycle soon & my skin is acne prone & I'm vain... Haha!

  7. Anybody looking to use a completely natural vitamin to help reduce acne, I can swear by this stuff.

    Pantothenic Acid. It's cheap, it's effective, and I love it. It takes about 10-14 days to start working, but is well worth it. I'm currently running and logging Epistane, and have been using Pantothenic to combat acne, AND IT WORKS! Give it a try if you still want to use the preworkout but don't want the acne.

  8. I am also extremely acne prone, and basically anything will flare a breakout, but on Pantothenic acid (a form of vitamin B) I am much less susceptible to acne

    What dosage do you use?

    Find the right dose for yourself, but it is recommended that you take 1 to 5 pills daily. Each pill is 100 milligrams, and for me personally I find that 3 pills a day is perfect.

    However, theres different strengths and milligrams...but I buy the 100mg pills

    Anything between 500mg - 1000mg worked well for me.

    I have 250mg tabs by Source Naturals.

  15. not for cycle use, but look into accutane if you are really worried about your acne.

    I've been reading about this latley and heard very good things. I'll have to give it a shot-especially when i'm taking any suppliments that can change hormones. I've got an achne flair up now actually so i might try get some tonight. Do you find it at the supermarket or is it more specialised?

    I'd be careful about accutane, has some nasty sides..

    did your acne go away?

  20. try Sea Breeze original at night.. if it's not too strong for you, use it throughout the day to keep oil under control and your pores clean.

    I recently had a hormonal imbalance that made my face break out and the Sea Breeze helped tremendously.

    It's only $3 for a big bottle.. try to find original and not "actives".

    Yep, had big oily lumpy acne from the DAA. Took about 2-4 weeks to start improving. I have pretty acne prone skin and DAA proved to be a nightmare for it..
