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.
