Men, We Know You Have Problems with Acne Too. Here's How to Get Rid of Them

Acne develops when sebum and dead skin cells clog the pores on the face. The underlying trigger for the overproduction of sebum is often hormone levels. While hormone levels are difficult to treat directly, there are facial treatments that can manage the production of sebum in men’s faces.

Difference between Facial Skin of Men and Women

A greater number of women suffer from acne as compared to men. Acne in women may be attributed to fluctuations in the estrogen and progesterone hormone. These fluctuations cause increased sebum production which can clog up the pores.

On the other hand, men produce more testosterone than women, which results in thicker and more oily skin. Men also have more active sebaceous glands than women, resulting in higher production of sebum. The higher levels of sebum production in the skin of adult males then lead to clogged pores, causing acne breakouts. Men are also, on average, hairier than women. Facial hair can act as an oil trap and a breeding ground for the bacteria which causes inflammation of clogged pores. In addition to the face and neck, men are also more susceptible to acne on the chest, back, upper arms, and shoulders.

Acne Treatment for Men


Acne can make shaving a difficult chore. Use an electric shaver instead of a razor blade to prevent irritating your skin and aggravating your acne. Alternatively, trimming your beard short instead of clean shaving will save your skin from worsening as you allow your acne to clear.

Skincare Routine

Skincare routines are not only for women – men can also benefit from incorporating a simple skincare routine daily. The essentials of a skincare routine are cleansing, toning and moisturising. Because men generally have oilier skin, it is best to use appropriate products that will unclog the pores without making the acne worse. Also, contrary to popular belief, facial skin needs to stay hydrated, not dry, to manage acne breakouts. For oily skin, a foaming cleanser and a non-comedogenic moisturiser work best. With just three simple steps, men with acne can prevent their condition from going out of control and eventually get healthier and smoother skin.

Skincare expert New York Skin Solutions’ Activ-Clear Acne Treatment works for both men and women. This facial treatment is designed to thoroughly clean your pores without drying out your skin. This solution boasts the triple actions of soothing, treating and balancing the quality and health of your acne-prone skin.

Prevent Future Outbreaks

Once you have clear and smooth skin, it takes commitment and effort to reduce the chances of an outbreak happening again. The underlying cause of facial acne in men is hormones that boost oil production in the skin – a visit to the doctor for supplements can help to balance those hormone levels. On a daily basis, maintaining good skincare habits is vital. Keep up with your skincare routine at home and go for regular facial treatments to boost your skin’s appearance and health.
