If you’re having an acne breakout, there may be a chance that your protein shake is the culprit.
After pumping iron, you want to give your muscles the fuel they need to repair the tiny tears that exercise causes. That’s what’s responsible for muscle growth.
And if you’re pressed for time after your sweat session, you probably reach for the easiest, most accessible source of protein you can find. For many guys, that’s the protein shake.
But if you’re been drinking up on the regular, you might be noticing an unintended consequence that has nothing to do with your muscles: an acne breakout.
