Wash Your Mats
Your unwashed yoga mat may be causing your body acne. Here’s why. Mats collect sweat, bacteria, and grime that can fester and grow between uses. From there, bacteria can nestle their way into your pores, causing inflammation and acne. Your mat may not look visibly dirty, but there’s a high chance there are microbes on the surface that can irritate your skin over time. Taking preventive steps is the best way to deal with body acne—so clean your mat after every use.
