Acne is a common skin condition that includes blemishes, whiteheads and blackheads.
What causes men’s acne?
Blemishes can form when skin produces excess oil, or sebum, and causes a pore to become clogged. As men’s skin is oiler than women’s, using skincare products for oily skin can help control shine and excess sebum.i Some of the main causes of acne are:
Excess Oil Production
Poor Skincare Routine
Lack of Sleep

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.
