What are men’s top skin problems and treatments?

As tough and rugged as men are sometimes perceived to be, it may come as a surprise that their skin can actually be very sensitive. Harmful chemicals and infections, cuts, scrapes, overexposure to sunlight, sweat, and stress can make male skin react in many less-than-ideal ways.

Acne

Pimples aren’t just an issue for teenagers…unfortunately. Humidity, stress, heavy sweating, or the use of steroids can cause blemishes. Even if you’re the figure of perfect personal hygiene and diet, you’ll still see flare-ups. In fact, washing your face too much can cause acne to get worse.

If your acne is bad enough to rattle your confidence, see a primary care physician. If you’re dealing with a more moderate situation, try a 5 percent, over-the-counter, benzoyl-peroxide skin wash from your local drug store, and use it twice a day.
