Acne: Not Just for Kids Anymore

Acne continues to be a major problem for men, one that reaches well past the teenage years. In a poll conducted by MenScience:
  • 61% of men admitted that acne had an effect on their social lives, but a majority of men (42%) prefer to wash their faces twice a day to treat it, instead of using the appropriate skincare product.
  • 85% think you should stop using an acne medication if your skin worsens at first. This misconception needs to be cleared up, as many products do tend to make skin look worse before actually providing visible improvements.
In light of these acne problems, MenScience aims to provide some much-needed information and new products to help overcome these skincare setbacks.

Even if you've been paying attention to MenScience's new acne treatment line for men, you still might not know about the newest addition: Advanced Acne Pads. These convenient pads contain Glycolic and Salicylic Acids to clear and prevent acne breakouts, while deep-cleaning pores. And MenScience has also been releasing tons of new articles focusing on different aspects of the acne problem, so men can educate themselves on the best ways to treat it.

So if acne effects you, as it does the majority of men, take a moment to get educated and find out what you can do to diminish the problem.

Repairing Men's Sports-Related Problems: Body Odor, Athlete's Foot, Bacne, Sunburn and Brittle Hair

Sports are the perfect way for men to get in shape and have a good time doing it. But with greater exercise often comes greater challenges to your skin and body, and we're not just talking about sore muscles here. Here's some tips for eliminating problems without sacrificing your fitness routine:

Facial Acne: Exercise and sweat can lead to acne breakouts, as grime accumulates in blocked pores. But you can prevent reoccurring acne by keeping skin clean, without overwashing, and applying a daily application of an acne treatment product that contains benzoyl peroxide.

Back Acne (Bacne): Shower as soon you're done working out and cleanse skin with a gentle liquid cleanser. Regularly exfoliate skin to keep pores clear and remove deep-down grime. Keep hair from hanging on your shoulders and back, and wear exercise clothes that whisk sweat from skin's surface.

Body Odor: You can't have exercise without B.O., but you can control it by washing as soon as you're finished exercising and using a deodorant that doesn't just mask odors with a heavy scent, but rather targets and neutralizes bacteria.

Sunburn: A match on the courts is a great way to stay in shape, but forget to slap on sunscreen and you're sprinting towards a world of pain (and future ages spots and wrinkles). Men require a sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum protection against UVA/UVB rays and won't wash away with sweat. Choose one that provides maximum protection of at least SPF 30.

Athlete's Foot: Caused by moist conditions and friction in your shoe, athlete's foot is an irritating problem that affects many guys. Keep feet as clean and dry as you can by washing your feet with a cleanser that contains antibacterial ingredients and drying them thoroughly after exercising.

Damaged hair: Swim for long enough and you'll develop sculpted waist, arms and legs...and brittle hair?! Rinse hair with fresh water before taking a dip (this will cut down on the amount of chlorinated/saltwater absorbed) and immediately after. Wash hair with a gentle shampoo to rebalance moisture levels and protect follicles, and wear a swim cap if you swim regularly.

Are there any sports-related problems that we missed? Let us know if we've got all the bases covered.
