Some of the most common Acne Myth’s
These are some of the most popular myth’s regarding men’s acne problem. So our today’s post is about breaking all these myths and telling our reader’s what really causes acne and how you can treat them.
In men, acne is caused by an increase in hormones which leads to excess secretion of sebum by sebaceous gland which in turn leads to clogged pores. These clogged pores when get mixed with dirt also become the breeding ground of bacteria which further increases this problem. As this acne problem is caused by hormonal surge which happens mainly in teenage years therefore it is often misconnected with excessive masturbation. Also acne is not just teen’s problem, it can happen at any age but hormonal surges happens mostly in teenage years. Poor hygiene may increase the infection but they are not the sole reason for acne breakouts. Many times men also face the problem of facial bumps which occurs after shaving due to friction caused between razor and ingrown hairs.
Whatever may be the reason of acne outbreak, they all cause discomfort and later hideous scars on the skin. But if you follow simple skin care tips you can easily get rid of it. You can easily blend these skin care tips in your daily routine and get rid off all your skin woes.
The first step towards acne free skin is cleansing but one should look for gentle cleansers which are alcohol free. The second important thing is to look for salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide which further fights acne and reduces redness and swelling. Lastly ingredients like glycerine and alpha hydroxy acid will add the much needed moisture to your skin.
We all know scrubbing help us in getting rid of dead skin cells but people who have acne prone skin must use them cautiously. If you have inflamed skin then srubbing can cause redness and irritation in your skin and one must avoid it. But if you get only few breakouts and that too not so severe then scrubbing can help you in removing dead skin cells which leads to clogging of pores.
We often have a misconception that oily skin don’t needs moisturising. But like every other skin type oily skin too needs hydration. Moisturisers will not only help you in soothing your skin but can also prevent further acne breakouts. You need to look for moisturiser which is non comedogenic and have ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, niacinamide. They will add the right dose of hydration into your skin.
Our body heals best when we take rest. So night care regime is one of the most important thing one needs to do for removal of scars and resurfacing of skin.
P.S. Don’t expect overnight results and you need to follow them as your everyday skin care routine. Only then you can find some noticeable changes.
