Anyone know of any alternatives to Vaseline I could put on my face before sparring? I get pretty bad acne and this is starting to really agitate my skin

albolene, but it makes you sweat so keep it off your eyebrows and forehead.

mineral oil. But it will also clog your pores the same way Vaseline does.

Yeah Vaseline clogs your pores if you use it often, I only use it for fights and important spars

I remember vaseline made me break out back in my freshman year of high school (I'm a sophmore in college now). I used to hate putting it on, but you gotta do what you gotta do man. It doesn't bother my skin at all any more though.

I wouldn't use abdolene. It's not even close to the same. You use abdolene to rub on your body to make you sweat not as vaseline.

You gotta just use the vaseline man.

That **** will burn if you put it on the face ya funny cunt! I would have thought that a decent headguard would be enough for sparring alone

lol

I was just joking, but it probably would work. It would do the same thing as vaseline, making the skin slick, but it's water based instead of oil based so it wouldn't clog pores as much and would wash off easier after.

how about one of the thicker body lotions they sell in stores...my face used to break out all the time when my trainer would put a dab on my gloves and make me rub it on my face. i guess my skin/pores got used to it cause after a while i stopped gettin that acne.

Ewww! That sounds gross mate. Can you stop filling us in on what you do in your 'sparring' sessions please? I've already asked you nicely to spare us the details

Aboline will make you sweat and that is what it is used for by us boxers. However it will work along the same lines as vaseline. It is a skin care product, so it should not bother you like vaseline will if you can deal with sweat dripping down your face.
