Why Do Men Get breakouts Or Acne

Whoever thought, but yes, men can get breakouts to severe acne. For most cases, changes in hormone levels trigger acne. For males, it is their excess activity of the male hormone like testosterone. High levels of testosterone can stimulate sebum and create oils. Which then equals a thick, gluggy consistency of sebum resulting in a blockage of the hair follicle, causing inflammation from an overgrowth of bacteria, this then results in a breakout,

Other triggers of acne or breakout-prone skins are: lifestyle factors, stress, environmental, medications, liver health, gut health, sweating, exercising, ingrown hairs, incorrectly shaving and genetics.

Males can suffer from acne or breakouts not only on their face but necks, chest, arms and backs.   To prevent this condition, I would encourage you to look at the overall picture of your health, skin and body. It would help if you got down to the root of the cause, find out what is causing the problem internally or environmentally. Once this can be established, we can fix the problem from re-occurring.

Treating the concern of breakouts or acne starts topically with having a professional skin-care regime.

Starting with :

Cleansing - Cleansing the skin morning and night to remove dirt, grime and excess sebum from your every day activity from work to exercising.

Exfoliating - Acne or breakout-prone skin can over produce in keratin (skin cells). Using an exfoliant with the ingredient salicylic acid - this acid is oil soluble, which means oil-loving, it can break down excess sebum, dirt and dead skin cells that clog pores.

Moisturiser - Moisturising acne or breakout-prone skin is an important part, I know most guys do not like this step but use an oil-free moisturiser that hydrates and protects.
