Acne for Men

Battle blemishes with targeted skincare products for acne-prone skin

What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that includes blemishes, whiteheads and blackheads.

What causes men’s acne?

Blemishes can form when skin produces excess oil, or sebum, and causes a pore to become clogged. As men’s skin is oiler than women’s, using skincare products for oily skin can help control shine and excess sebum. Some of the main causes of acne are:

  • Excess Oil Production
  • Excessive Sweating
  • Poor Skincare Routine
  • Environmental Aggressors/Pollution
  • Diet
  • Stress
  • Lack of Sleep

How can men treat acne?

Start with a face wash for acne-prone skin or exfoliating scrub to remove excess oil and dirt which can clog pores. Follow with a facial toner and an acne treatment lotion. When you have a breakout, use a spot treatment to effectively target blemishes.

Should men use a moisturizer for acne-prone skin?

Even if you have oily or acne-prone skin, a moisturizer is an important step in your routine. Some acne treatments may cause skin to feel dry and replenishing moisture helps skin stay balanced. Look for non-comedogenic formulas that will moisturize skin without clogging pores.

What are the best acne treatments for men?

Look for a facial lotion with Salicylic Acid or another acne-fighting ingredient known to help visibly diminish blemishes. For existing blemishes, try a spot treatment with Salicylic Acid or a spot treatment with Sulfur. If you have post-acne marks after your blemishes clear, a dark spot corrector can help visibly diminish their appearance over time.
