How To Treat Male Acne-Body Acne-Pimples and Stubborn Blemishes-Skincare Just For Men

Aug 17, 2007
How many men do you know suffer from body acne? The chances are pretty good that you know a few. Starting from adolescence, most males battle with body acne and scarring caused by acne, and many find it to be a very frustrating condition.

How many guys do you think use skincare products as part of their daily regime? Twenty-five percent? Forty percent? The truth is that for most men, their daily skincare regime is basically non-existent. They get up, take a quick shower, brush their teeth, maybe fix their hair, and then they are off to work. On other days they might shave, and use a shave gel and aftershave product, but for most men that is the extent of their skincare regime.

It's no wonder facial and body acne thrive off of mens' bodies. A male's body is the perfect host for acne. A males body tends to secrete alot of oil, especially in comparison to women, and the production of the male hormone Androgen is often the culprit. Combine the sweaty, moist environment that constantly surrounds men, combined with the everyday stresses of work and life, and you have the perfect atmosphere for bacteria to develop which helps to fuel acne growth. Mix a few unhealthy habits like poor food choices, little exercise, and unhealthy work environments that often involve dust, particles, chemicals, and other dangerous residues, and it's easy to understand why men have such a tough time controlling, let alone preventing acne breakouts.

For most males, seeing pimple or zit pop up is quite annoying, and many can hardly resist the temptation to squeeze it, and to try to get rid of the pimple by picking it. But this only makes matters worse and does little to address the root of the problem. Most men have little patience when it comes to controlling and preventing acne breakouts from occurring. But with a little understanding and a few simple, effective changes, any man can achieve blemish-free skin.

If you think about skincare, the vision of women and countless beauty products often comes to mind, right? But what about the image of Shannon Sharpe and Joe Namath, both ex-professional football players? Or how about Adrian Grenier or stars from television hits like CSI, Deadwood, 24, or the Sopranos? What if I told you, that these stars, they too suffer from skin problems like acne and blemished skin. Not only do the makeup artists use these products on these individuals, but the actors themselves use the products at home and on the road to help them achieve better looking skin.

The only difference between them and you, is that their face is plastered all over the place for the world to see, so every imperfection to them is a bigger deal. Or so they would say. So how do they stop zits and blemishes from occurring? How do they maintain healthy looking skin? They start with a daily skincare regime and they use products that are specifically designed for men. That's right! Skincare Products For Men!

There is a company out there that had the brilliant idea to design a line of products specifically for men, designed to meet the everyday needs of men. From face wash, to shave gels, after shave, cologne, and travel kits, they market it. So who is buying it? Well for starters, their products are well known among professional athletes and celebrities across the United States. But do you think they are the only ones to have access to these great products, aimed at stopping zits from occurring? No, everyday individuals like yourself are also using these products in an effort to achieve a clearer complexion, and healthier looking skin.

We all know that men work hard, and play hard, but what do they do when it comes to living healthy lives and enjoying flawless skin? Generally not much goes into that part because it's been ingrained upon us that only women care about their looks. You may think this subconsciously, but this is not the case. The evidence is clear that more and more men are taking an interest in their appearance, and how they look and feel. If you want healthier looking skin, and more confidence, if you want to be able to take off your shirt without having to worry about unsightly pimples on your back, then it's time you too took an interest in skincare that has been designed with your needs in mind.
