  1. Hello, to my fellow victims of this terrible plague called acne. I’m not new to acne.org as I have stumbled across these forums on many occasions in the past, but this will be my first ever post. I am a 22 year old guy who suffers from moderate to severe acne specifically and almost exclusively on the chin. Picture someone drawing a triangle from the corners of your mouth down to the sides of your chin. I do occasionally get 1 or 2 above my mouth as well (maybe once or twice a month) but they he
  2. Yo guys! First of all, happy new year! I hope 2015 was great for you and I hope that this new year of 2016 will be even better! Anyways, I'll try to make this as short as possible. (SKIP TO THE 2ND PARAGRAPH TO GET TO THE POINT IF YOU'RE IN A HURRY! ) I'm a 17 year old male that has mild scarring at worse. I would say that 87% of people with acne scars have slightly worse or way worse scars than me and 13% people with acne scars have less noticeable scars than I do. So in other words,
  3. All you dudes out there, I have a question for you. Do you find that having facial hair either helps your acne, or contributes to it? I've noticed when I have more facial hair, my acne isn't as persistent as opposed to when my face is completely bare. What is your experience?

  5. I have had 2 facial acne extractions done and each time new whiteheads have formed. Just wondering if this is normal and the best way to treat it. * a semi big one popped on its own and I wasn't sure how to get the gunk out (I used comedome extractor).

    Men And Hormonal Treatments

    Hello, I was thinking about ways to combat DHT induced skin issues in men, and something came to me courtesy of some of my hardcore lifting acquaintances. The problem with men taking DHT inhibitors [something that either inhibits the alpha-5 reductase enzyme (Finasteride) or reduces uptake of DHT by cells (Saw Palmetto)] is that the lower DHT means that sometimes estrogen can become more dominant and cause feminizing problems like ED or gynocomastia. BUT, why can't we just take an aromatase
  7. I'm a male , 19 years old. I work out every other day. Strict diet. No diary no suger etc.. Eat healthy, a lot of veggies and protein. I wash my face each workout and 2 times a day. The past few years I've been fighting this ance war and i tried all the methods. I tried proactive, clean n clear, Neutrogena, None really worked. Clean n clear were great, take out all my black heads until my skin got immune to it. I don't touch my face at all. I drink zero calories Vitamin water Eat a leas
  8. I'm a sixteen year old guy with moderate acne, I've tried many things, and now I'm trying doing nothing. I've had acne since I was about 12. It's always made me feel very insecure and depressed. I've tried multiple things, but have tried to stay away from the drugs such as Acutane, because of the possible side effects. The one thing I tried for the longest time was Epiduo. I can tell you more about that if you like, but this log will mostly be about my current regimen - nothing. I've been doin
  9. Hi, so I'm a guy, I've dealt with my active acne but now I'm left with these red hyper pigmentation spots and my skin texture isn't awesome either. I realize that it will take time to heal , so I've decided to put my pride aside and start looking into something that can cover these flaws A BIT. I do not want to do like a full make up routine, I want it to be subtle, I'd hate to have to admit that I'm wearing some kind of make-up. I started looking into these bb cremes and they seem to do what

  11. Adult Acne

    ...there appears to be an increase in post-adolescent acne, and that the disease is lasting longer and is requiring treatment well into the mid forties."2 International Journal of Cosmetic Science, 2004 Adult acne affects 25% of adult men and 50% of adult women at some time in their adult lives. 1/3 of adults affected with facial acne also have acne on their back and body. These are the official statistics, but most adults have had a zit...
  12. I'm on Doxycycline now to reduce the current acne, but my breakout began on my chin, and moved around my jaw. My forehead and cheeks are pretty much intact. I've been reading online that chin and jaw acne is hormonal, but I'm not sure if men can get hormonal acne. I'm 17 by the way. So, can men get hormonal acne? How can you reduce it? Any natural alternatives? Thanks!
  13. So I am Asian (Chinese) male 19 yrs old. I had sudden moderate to severe breakout 2 months ago, but now it's under control as my face is almost clear from active acne. But unfortunately, the breakout left a lot of acne marks (seems like post inflammatory hyperpigmentation) on both sides of my cheeks and jawline. It makes me look like I still have severe acne. It looks terrible and I know it needs time to fade. So while waiting for them to fade, I am seriously considering ways to cover th
  14. I am an Asian (Chinese) male 19 yrs old. So I had a severe breakout 2 months ago and was prescribed with low dose accutane (10 mg twice/day). Most of my acne has cleared up but they left a lot of hyperpigmentation marks which damaged my confidence becuase it covers most of my cheeks and jawline on both sides of my face. It made me look like I still have severe acne all over my face. So I'm considering to apply makeup to cover the UGLY RED/BROWN SPOTS.. The spots are flat but it covers large
  15. Hello, I have a really silly question but, how do you get it? I am hoping to get prescribed Accutane by my dermatologist tomorrow, so I was wondering how the process works for us male types because all I can find on here is how it works for the ladies.. haha. I know you have to get a blood test and all that, but I am hoping to start the regimen as soon as possible, so when would I actually start taking the dosages? Thanks so much guys, y'all rock and I hope everyone's acne stays away forever
  16. Male Acne

    After puberty, androgens (male hormones) are about 10 times higher in males than in females. Due to this increase in male hormones, a man's skin becomes about 25-30% thicker than his female counterpart. Male skin also produces more than twice as much sebum (skin oil) and thus more severe cases of acne on average. Let's take a look at some more considerations when it comes to acne in males. Shaving Shaving with the wrong razor or with...

    Adult Acne Defined The Two Types of Adult Acne Causes of Adult Acne Comparison of Features in Adult and Adolescent Acne What Studies Can Tell Us about Adult Acne Conclusion Adult Acne Defined People often think of acne as a condition that affects teenagers that disappears naturally after adolescence, but different studies have shown that significant percentages of adults experience acne as well.

  18. Can Acne Medications or Treatments Age the Skin?

    Skin Oil (Sebum) and Aging The medical term for skin oil is sebum. Sebum is important when it comes to acne because, generally speaking, more sebum means more acne. This is why some anti-acne medications and procedures aim to permanently reduce sebum production. However, we still don't know whether permanently impairing the skin's ability to produce sebum might prematurely age the skin. Two changes happen naturally to sebum as people age. We can see that isotretinoin, photodynamic therapy,...
  19. ^ in the title really, I feel like male acne is a lot more stubborn (generally men have thicker, oilier skin than women) and a lot of the ladies on here combine their treatment with birth control or other hormone related treatments that we men obviously cant use. So without wanting to look sexist I thought it would be worth creating a thread for guys to post what they are using and what works for them. Include any vitamins/supplements, too, because I imagine the different vitamins wo
  20. So I'm looking into using makeup to help even out my acne scars which are still very visible (pics below). Problem is, I don;t have a clue about makeup being a man and only really know of concealer (which I sometimes use) and foundation. I don't have a clue how to put it all on, and what's the powder about? With regards to foundation (which I know a little about) I am just looking for something that isn't too heavy and doesn't block pores as much while still covering up scars, although I'm no
  21. If you have questions, please PM me, do not respond to this post. Introduction You thought you would "grow out" of your acne and didn't? You're not alone. Many men and women suffer adult acne in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond. Adults with acne often have hormonal imbalances that linger after puberty, and these imbalances create disfiguring acne. Quick Review on Hormones The main sex hormones are testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. Men and women have all three hormones in
  22. Hey guys, Im male at 27years and I got acne from more than 10 years and very very oily skin. Its severe acne but its really annoying and I wanna get rid of it. I know that women can take pills to regulate their hormons. What about men? I wanna make hormonal tests, but don't know which hormon results I need and can men fix hormone disbalance somehow?
  23. Shaving for Acne-Prone People

    How to shave (text version) If you are acne prone it is best to grow a beard and not shave at all or to shave every day. The more days you wait between shaves the longer the hair will become, and the longer the hair becomes the more drag it will produce when you shave. And since we know that irritation equals acne, it's important to do everything you can to reduce irritation when you're shaving. Most...
  24. How Common Is Adult Acne?

    For most adolescents, acne begins to subside by the time they become young adults.1 But a surprising amount of adults continue to experience acne, or even begin experiencing it for the first time after the age of 25. This is known as adult acne.2 Based on the evidence we have, we estimate that 31.9% of women and 20.5% of men between the ages of 20 and 70 years have acne. Most acne research is devoted to...
  25. Hey Folks, I have just registered to this site which seems amazing. I hope to encounter my very bad acne, oily/greasy skin & acne scaring. My name is Dan, Male, 18 from the UK. I was wondering what moisturiser I should use on a daily basis. I get greasy/oily skin after 2-3 hours after washing my face. I have to wash my face frequently because of this. Right now I am using Skinfood Moistureiser - http://www.amazon.co...58083008&sr=8-2 I don't think this is helping me with my acne
