    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
  2. 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
  3. 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,
  4. 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

    Jawline Break Out

    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

    Doing Nothing - Teen Acne

    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. 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?
  10. 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
  11. 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

  13. 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!
  14. 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

    Shaving with acne

    I'm wondering what product I should use when I shave my face to avoid clogging pores and reduce irritation. Right now I'm using the neutrogena shaving cream with disposable 2-blade razors. I'm getting mixed results and I'm trying to figure out if this is causing my breakouts because they seem to occur a few days after shaving. I only shave once a week because my facial hair doesn't grow fast. I would most likely go for something natural with no chemical ingredients if possible. Thank you p
  16. ^ 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
  17. 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

    Men hormonal acne?

    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?
  19. 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

    Moisturiser For Oily/greasy Skin

    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
  21. I'm not sure if this topic has been discussed yet, but if it has feel free to disregard this whole shpeal. So I've seen a loooot of posts on here (usually by men) asking what makeup products can and can't be used for men, how great it would be if men could wear makeup, etc. etc, and I'd just like to say that people of all genders can wear makeup. To say otherwise is incredibly ignorant. However, this does not mean that other ignorant people don't stir up anxiety and doubt in people by shaming
  22. I wasn't sure where to put this post. I started taking accutane a month and a bit ago and I am absolutely in love with the results! I practice kendo, a sport where you have to wear a helmet (that has interior padding that rests on your chin and forehead). I don't know if it is a good idea to be wearing it while on accutane. Does anyone else have an insight?
  23. Hi all - thank you so much for taking the time to look at this! I am a male and I have had acne problems since I was about 16 and am now 21 - so you can imagine its getting pretty tiring. The pimples I have been getting in the past 3 years or so are all located around the mouth, chin, jawline and under the chin. My skin condition is fairly inconsistent, one week it wont be too bad, the next week it will be quite bad, however there are never any prolonged periods of time in which my skin is 'g
  24. A Guys Guide To Accutane I decided to make this "guide" because before I started Accutane, I did some research on side effects & noticed that most of the posts were female based. I thought there should be some advice for men too. A quick background on me: I'm 35 yrs old & have had mild/moderate acne since I was 16. I've tried everything from topicals to antibiotics with nothing ever curing me ...or even coming close. The last few years the acne changed to a mix of everything - sma
  25. So I break out about once a week. In between then I usually get very few pimples. It's almost alway on the 5-7 day mark I will have another breakout. My question is, is hormonal acne even possible in men? I only see women having success in fixing hormones to treat acne on this forum. Would Saw Palmetto help at all?
