Pimples and Sex
Is there any relationship between constant sex and developing pimples on the face. I stayed away from sex for two wks and my face was free of pimples

Hello,

During intercourse, the level of androgens (particularly testosterone) is more eminent and they also increase the production of some special body oils known as sebum. This sebum can clog the pores and if there is any bacteria present on skin, it can cause folliculitis or acne.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
