Movember and men's acne skin care seem like a great topic combo. Since the skin is the largest organ of the body, it is important for men to also consider their skin health during "Movember."
Movember is an annual event in November to focus attention on men's health issues such as prostate disease - and why not acne. Acne can be a serious issue for men, and it's common.
Why is Acne Skin Care a Concern for Men?
Acne is especially troubling for men since testosterone increases oil production in your skin glands. The complication of men's acne skin care is how to balance harsh acne skin care products without aggravating your beard area. Dr. Bailey tackles men's acne skin care issues in her original blog post, Best Men's Skin Care for Clogged Pores and Acne. Dr. Bailey has outlined a simple men's acne skin care routine that takes into consideration their specific needs. As she says in her own words:
The bottom line is that it takes just a few low-maintenance, but targeted, skin care steps for a man to have healthy and attractive skin that looks well-groomed and youthful.
Men's Acne Skin Care Basic Regimen
Dr. Bailey stresses that the best skin care results happen when you use the right products for each of the 4 essential skin care steps, especially with a problem as tenacious as acne including Pityrosporum 'fungal' acne and common acne vulgaris. These steps are:
- Cleanse (to remove oil, dirt, debris and old product)
- Correct (the skin issues that lead to acne such as blackheads, acne causing bacteria and yeast, inflammation etc.)
- Hydrate (to prevent skin dryness and irritation)
- Protect (skin from UV that can pigment acne scars and even trigger acne for some)
Dr. Bailey targets each step with the right acne-healing products in an acne routine. She's taken the guess work out in her Pityrosporum Folliculitis Kit. The kit treats both types of acne.
Men's Acne Skin Care Bottom Line
Dr. Bailey's men's acne skin care regimen creates a simple skin care regimen without too much fuss and is easy to maintain.
