Puberty is already a turbulent time, add acne to the mix and it can be miserable. For young men during this time androgens (male sex hormones) are running rampant around their systems, causing excess sebum (oil) which more often than not, becomes thick and waxy, gets trapped in the pores and hair shafts and, adding to this, random sprouts of facial hair start to make an appearance, causing further skin irritation. So, what we have here is an overproduction of sebum coupled with male hairiness - a troublesome duo when it comes to acne. The hair shafts are much more likely to become blocked with dead cell material debris and ingrown hairs, trapping with it, the acne bacteria. Suddenly pimples, pustules, blackheads and whiteheads are popping up all over the place.
Acne is much more likely to last longer in men, following them well into their twenties, and sometimes beyond. That’s because their levels of androgens and testosterone are higher than in women. As well as excessive sebum flow and hairiness contributing to male acne, men’s skin also has a slightly lower pH level, and this makes it whole lot easier for acne bacteria to survive on and deeper in the skin. It’s thought that the chemical makeup of male sweat, which has double the amount of lactic acid compared to a women’s, plays a large role in the more alkaline state of men’s skin. Their skin is slightly more alkaline by about 0.5 points. Though, if everything is in balance, stable sebum production and lactic acid can assist the skin’s hydration level and keep it looking plump and juicy, turning pimply princes into handsome Kings!
Growing a bit more than peach fuzz………Teenage boy hairiness, and as young men begin shaving for the first time, can start a whole other skin irritation as well. While women may experience the rough irritation of the razor on their legs and underarms, they often don’t have to drag a razor across their faces. Razor rash or burn, razor bumps, ingrown hairs, cuts and an impaired skin barrier are all conditions that teenage boys and men must deal with due to shaving.
