Men are prone to acne breakouts just as women are. There is no differentiating factor between men’s and women’s acne; both are caused either due to poor hygiene, unbalanced diet, lifestyle choices or oily skin. If you are acne prone then you need not worry; I have a few tricks that will improve your complexion and get rid of acne breakouts.
Acne is caused when the skin produces excess oil. This oil lays the surface of the skin and attracts dirt and bacteria that cause the breakouts on your skin. In order to prevent breakouts on your skin you need to have a good cleansing routine. Wash your face when you wake up in the morning. It is best to use warm water and a mild cleansing soap or face wash to get rid of excess oils. At night you can wash your face with cold water. After you have washed your face in the morning you must use an exfoliating cream; this will help to get rid of oils that are clogging your pores. It also eliminates dead skin and makes your skin look clean. Massage the exfoliating cream on your face in circular movements; this will increase blood circulation in your face and prevent breakouts. You must pay attention to your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin as these areas are most prone to breakouts.
Splash water on your face after you use the exfoliating cream to get rid of any residue of the product. Use an alcohol free toner on your face and neck. Fresh lemon juice can be used as a toner. Rub a lemon wedge on your skin and pat it dry with a towel. The juice will reduce the size of your pores and this will give your skin a tighter look.
You must use a good moisturizer on your skin. Buy a product that is specially formulated for oily skin or acne prone skin. Avoid using any oils on your skin as they will aggravate your skin condition.
