I know this has been discussed several times before, but I don’t want to dig up an ancient topic.
Many people say creatine has no effect whatsoever on acne. Others disagree.
I started taking creatine monohydrate one week ago (Creapure, 5g per day) and since then I have noticed a slight increase in acne. My diet has not changed, my training has not changed, I just added the 5g per day after my workouts.
I have had 1 pimple on my left bicep since then (wierd, right?), and of all places, 1 on the outside of my right ear. I have never had acne in either of these places before.
It seems likely to me that creatine is at least partly responsible for this. Am I out to lunch?
