Well placed facial hair can make acne almost unnoticeable, but you gotta maintain it properly, otherwise your face will look like a mess. I don't think that growing a beard makes your acne worse, but you gotta be careful when shaving/trimming it.

Your beard will cover your active acne, but it will also make it worse. Having facial hair causes your skin to be more oily. Also, if your hair is covering your acne, it will make it a lot harder to apply topical medicine on it.

Facial hair def gives me more acne.

But I guess if you can grow a pretty good beard and make it some what fashionable lol, maybe you could do that for a while until your acne begins to get a little better. Remember to shave with an electric shaver and not razors. Not only do that cut and scar your acne but it's more likely to create breakouts. I shave almost every morning and I can't believe it took me so long to think that I should be using electric.

I'm not sure if my shaving cream gives me acne or not.. I got a breakout recently only around where I shave..I'm too scared to try again :(

I use palmolive oil.
