Blemishes are a common and can form when skin produces excess oil (sebum), this can cause a pore to become clogged. As men’s skin tend to be oilier than women’s, using skincare products for oily skin can help control shine and excess sebum. Some of the main causes of breakouts are:
- Excess Oil Production
- Excessive Sweating
- Poor Skincare Routine
- Environmental Aggressors/Pollution
Start with a face wash for blemish-prone skin with our Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser or exfoliating scrub Age Defender Cleanser to remove excess oil and dirt which can clog pores. Follow with a facial toner - Blue Herbal Astringent Lotion and a blemish treatment lotion like our Breakout Control Blemish Treatment Facial Lotion.
Even if you have oily or blemish-prone skin, a moisturiser is an important step in your routine. Some blemish products may cause skin to feel dry and replenishing moisture helps skin stay balanced. Look for non-comedogenic formulas that will moisturise skin without clogging pores.
Look for a facial lotion with Salicylic Acid Breakout Control Blemish Treatment Facial Lotion or another ingredient known to help visibly reduce blemishes. For existing blemishes, try a product with Salicylic Acid such as Breakout Control Targeted Blemish Spot Treatment. If you have dark spots from blemishes, a dark spot corrector Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution can help visibly diminish their appearance.
