Acne Treatments For Men

Carol asks…

Are there any treatments for hormonally influenced acne in men?

Something like what birth control does for women, but for men.

It doesn’t matter that your acne is caused by hormones–most acne is which is why it becomes common in puberty.

If you are looking for a low cost, effective way of getting rid of acne I suggest that you try red clover acne tea. It’s actually and blend of serveral natural ingredients and good for a variery of inflamatory skin conditions, acne being one of them. I personally endorse this product because I use it and began using it without telling my familiy about it, drinking it one to two times a day.

Shortly after beginning to use it–about 2 weeks–I was helping my mother do something on the computer. She kept looking looking at me. Finally, she just stopped and said “What did you do to you skin?” Confused, I said “Nothing. Why?” She said “It looks so much better and so healthy!” Thinking rapidly I responded “Oh, that. I started to drink this special tea to help me with my acne. I suppose it’s working!”

I’ve now been using red clover tea for a few month and my skin is healthier than ever. The bumps on my face have gone down, my skin is smoother than ever and my skin is less oily. The bumps on my back have also gone down. I still have a few but compared to before they’re nothing about which to complain. The best part is that it only costs me $15 every 6 weeks to 2 months to maintain my acne fighting routine which is significantly less than other acne fighting systems like Proactiv or Klear and my skin is not left feeling dry and tight, as is a common side effect with those systems.

I do continue to clean my face a few times a week with a facial cleanser and I do use a drying agent every now and again as they do have their benefits but I do not rely on them anymore.

Red Clover Acne Tea has been the most effective acne fighting product I’ve ever tried and will continue to us it.

Laura asks…

Best way to remove unwanted body hair? (male) How expensive is laser removal? Is it effective?

Mainly chest hair and back hair. Shaving usually results in little red bumps and acne and irritation (rash almost like)…
I have heard it tends to lessen after several shavings but my skin seems sensitive to this..
any hints or tips or advice is appreciated. I would consider laser removal or something permanent also, just don’t know if its effective and works for the cost. Thanks.

admin answers:

If you want to perminantly get rid of body hair I suggest the hair removal route. Go to a couple dermatologists and get a couple quotes. It may cost a couple thousand because it usually takes more than one treatment (especially for men) but if you want to get rid of the hair forever it’s worth it.

If your skin is having problems while shaving you probably aren’t doing it right. You might be using a dull razor, one with too many blades than you need, aren’t using enough shaving cream, or you are pressing too hard. A razor won’t irritate your skin that bad when you shave with enough cream.

Waxing works well too but that’s exspensive over time, it’s best just to get laser removal.


Linda asks…

What is the best type of face cleanser and moisturizer to use on sensitive skin?

See, I have sensitive skin and ezcema (skin allergy) (which probably causes my skin to be sensitive). Anyway, I can’t use a lot of products because they are too harsh for my skin. I have some acne (which is some part to do with the ezcema) and some dryness. I use Aveeno Clear Complexion cleanser, but I don’t really see it making a difference in my skin’s appearance as it says it does. But, it doesn’t make it worse, like drying it out or making it read and irritated. So, what are the best products to use???

I used Tetracyclin, Proactive, Retina A and had many expensive facials with less than good results.
This has worked for me and many many other happy people.

Go to pharm.,Drug store, or Walmart, buy “PURPOSE” bar of soap – Blue box – Made by Johnson & Johnson – wash your face with this
2-3x’s per day. Also pick up a LOW strength Benzoyl-peroxide cream, apply the cream by dabbing
to the individual blemishes…. DONT rub it in works using a oxidation/reduction reaction..It will unclog
dry it out and bring it to a head…DONT over use this or put anywhere else on your face. It will cause drying and make you look worse.

Salicylates such as found in regular asprin among other products work very similar but also remove layers of skin…
Other over the counter creams with this product will dry out pimples but maybe too hash and cause surrounding skin trauma..
I have seen many people recommending crushing asprin and making a paste which probably will dry out the blemish but again
pretty strong and probably will cause more tissue damage and bigger scars as an anti inflammatory
probably would take the reddness out… Again pretty harsh for sensative skin.

Also, If need which probably will for moisture ASK FOR “NUTRADERM lotion” – the orginal not the new stuff, this works
great and wont clog pores or leave a residue on your skin…Any lotion that is completely oil free and hypoallergic should
work but again I recommend Nutraderm. I have heard from people online that “Purpose” also makes a lotion that is good, Nutragena, and Nivea
make good products also. I recommend Nutraderm from experience and my dematologist.

“Purpose Bar” & “Nutraderm” are oil free and hypoallergic they contain no perfumes and are great for both men and women.
I have also heard great reports of this soap helping improve skin tone. Some people recommend the “Purpose luqid soap” saying
that the bar did dry out their skin some. The rational behind using the bar is that there are no ingredients in it that will clog pores, and
according to dermatologists they recommend the Bar. I have also heard good responses from “cetaphil soap”. These products are safe for all skin colors and tones. I highly discourage use
of Proactive and other harsh chemicals for people with some natural color in their face due to the bleaching and drying effect it has
shown in many many people.

Additonal TIPS: acne, pimples, etc are frequently cause by a bacteria or hormone issues that cause clogging of pores.
DONT PICK POP POKE (your hands are the dirtiest part of your body) and will cause: infections, spreading of germs, more breakouts and scarring
DONT EVER listen to people online who tell you to scrub your sensative skin or use harsh chemicals
such as: Lemon juice, vinagar, alcohol, etc… DONT EVER use that APRICOT CRAP!!! DONT USE
PROACTIVE- this is expensive and harsh it may kill the bacteria cause also Benzoyl based wash but
will irritate skin and cause bleaching of face and neck…. Other similar treatments may work.. Also
things such as Accutane but have SERIOUS side effects such as Major Depression, & birth defects in unborn children, among others
If you wear make up make sure it is oil free, & hypoallergic…Eating healthy…Drinking plenty of water.. Changing pillow cases freq.
Etc …avoiding dirty sports equp. Such as helmets…can not hurt…Acne/pimples again are caused by pores/hair follicles becoming plugged
up, this plugging then causes an inflammatory reaction – reddness and infection (pimple) head is dirt trapped in pore, while a white
head is the same thing you just dont see the dirt instead you see white pus (lymphocytes that accumulate in the area to fight the infection)
It has been shown in many studies this most often not caused by what you eat (chocolate etc… Or how clean you are) but most often by either excess oils plugging pores or a bacteria
on the skins surface. – Proactive works in some people because it is a strong Benzoyl peroxide based washed but is most freq. To strong
for people with sensative skin – this is why alot of people get excessive drying and flaking, rashes, bleaching or breakouts from the product.
Retina-A does decrease the bacterial growth on your face but also removes dead/living skin, this can work well in some individuals and
has been shown to reduce wrinkles and scars but again I feel this is pretty harsh on sensative skin prone to breakouts. If you choose
Retina-A never use this product during the day only at night due to the sensativity it will give you to the sun. You must also get a perscription
for this product and I really don’t believe it is worth the damage it does to your skin. In some rare cases for very deep/large boils and cyst types
of pimples oral antibiotics maybe needed but I would first recommend trying “purpose” and a low dose “benzoyl-peroxide cream” along with a good
oil free moisturizer “Nutraderm… Etc” this does work well.

THIS WORKS FAST AND CHEAP!!! I no longer get expensive facials, take oral antibiotics, or even NEED makeup… I am very happy – Have
very good skin… And have many many other happy friends… THANKS again to my WONDERFUL
DERMATOLOGIST… TRY THIS!! GOOD LUCK…. PS. “PURPOSE” costs about $3 ———————————————
