You are a man and you have acne. This is something that most all men have to deal with at some point in their life. Pay attention to the tips in this article that we have hand picked for males, and you can clear up your skin while retaining your manhood.
If you wear make-up or a cleanser that is oil based, stop using it! These oil based products are horrible for acne. Since your body already produces oils naturally, adding more oils to your skin will only serve to increase your chances of developing acne problems. Instead, look for oil free products.
If you need to reduce a large, red pimple, try using a cold compress or even an ice cube wrapped in a cloth. Because the cold will reduce the blood flow to the blemish and the swelling will decrease, applying the cold compress just before bed can cause reduced redness in the morning.
One of the most important ways to avoid getting acne is to keep your hands away from your face. The bacteria and oils on your fingers can actually damage your skin and cause pores to be clogged. Don't ever push on or irritate your face at all with your fingers.
Consider using a cleaner rather than bar soap to clean your face. The skin's natural pH is 5.5, while bar soap typically has a pH of around 9. Bar soap can therefore alter the skin's pH enabling the types of bacteria that cause acne to multiply. Bar soap also contains thickeners which can block pores. Finally, bar soaps strip the skin of all natural oils causing the sebaceous glands to overproduce oil leading to clogged pores.
Smoking can have a profound impact on your skin and can often yield acne. Smoking releases particles that can clog your harm and pores your body from the inside out. Every cigarette harms your internal capacity to reduce toxins, often causing acne as a result. Limit or quit smoking entirely to improve the way your face looks.
If back acne is an issue for you, then you may want to change your body cleanser. Once a day, opt for cleansers that contain salicylic acid or those geared toward clearing up use and acne these when you shower. Also, be sure to shower soon after vigorous exercise or physical activities, to avoid having the bacteria and dirt clog up your pores.
If you take antibiotics for acne, you may need to rebuild your body's defenses by using probiotics. Antibiotics don't just kill off bad bacteria they also kill your body's friendly bacteria, which can cause more health problems down the road. Take a high-quality probiotic to rejuvenate your body's natural population of bacteria.
Getting a little bit of sunshine every day helps prevent acne. Sunshine helps create Vitamin D in the body, which is an essential nutrient for the skin. Do not stay in the sun too long as this can create negative results for the skin, however. Taking a ten minute walk a day is sufficient.
When you exercise, make sure to take a shower or bath, as soon as possible afterwards, to remove the sweat and oils that are produced. Avoid wearing hats or helmets during a workout as that will cause you to sweat more, which can cause a flare up of your acne, if you can.
A simple lemon slice can help you with your acne. Apply a slice of freshly cut lemon to your blemish. Leave on only for a few minutes. This is an easily accessible, cost and natural-effective treatment for acne. This treatment only takes a few minutes a day and can deter you from more drastic and expensive treatments.
In conclusion, acne is a common problem that most of us deal with at some point in our lives. The problem of acne, however, does not have to be a permanent one. If you follow the advice found in this article, you can alleviate yourself of the burden acne.
