Confusion Persists Related to Male Acne

Male acne is on the rise, and the same myths about its causes continue to be debated as fact. Stressful lifestyles, lack of sleep, and a poor diet are some of the reasons dermatologists give for the increase, but these are the same reasons people falsely believed for decades to be at the root of all acne. It is no surprise that new products continue to fail to provide an effective and lasting solution, just as the old ones have. All cases of acne, in men and women alike, are hormonal acne and can only be treated by eliminating the hormone that causes it.
What Is the Cause of the Increase in Male Acne?
Although acne is caused by the hormone DHT, which causes excess oil production in the skin’s pores, the amount of this hormone that a person produces is largely dependent on their genes. This is why people in some families are more prone to acne breakouts than others. While it may be difficult to pin down the cause for an increasing number of men to be experiencing acne as adults, it doesn’t change the fact that DHT is at the root of the problem.
Advances in Acne Care
Another myth that is still prevalent among so-called skin care professionals is that the over-the-counter products today have advanced to the degree that acne is much easier to get rid of. In reality, the same types of products and ingredients are being used that were failing to provide permanent solutions years ago. Not only can some ingredients fail to improve acne, they can make the condition worse or lead to other, more serious conditions.
