There are a few things to keep in mind while you’re choosing an acne treatment that’s right for you – including the fact that acne is not the same for every man. In other words, there’s not one right way of treating acne that works for everyone.

For Beginers, it’s important to identify your skin type: is it normal, dry, oily, or a combination of two of them? Additionally, there are different ways in which acne manifests on your skin – pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, cystic acne, and acne scars.

Perhaps more importantly, however, you need to know what type of acne you have (and we’ll delve deeper into acne types later:

Cystic Acne – the most severe type
Inflammatory Acne – can range from mild to moderate in severity
Comedonal Acne – the mildest form of acne
If you’re buying an over-the-counter acne treatment you’ll notice several common ingredients, including:

Benzoyl peroxide kills bacteria that causes acne while removing excess oil and dead skin cells which may clog pores. Benzoyl peroxide ranges in strength from 2.5 to 10 percent in OTC products.

Salicylic acid keeps pores unplugged and ranges in strength from 0.5 to 5 percent in OTC treatments. It may cause mild stinging and skin irritation.

There are two types of alpha hydroxy acids used in non-prescription acne products: glycolic acid and lactic acid. Both types treat acne by removing dead skin cells and reducing inflammation. They also stimulate skin growth and smoother skin.

Sulfur is another ingredient in OTC acne products that remove dead skin cells and excess oil. It’s often combined with other ingredients, such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.

The question is, which ingredients are right for you and your type of acne? Here are some things to consider:

If you’re still unsure, choose a product with benzoyl peroxide. Most people tolerate benzoyl peroxide (without side effects) and even a lower strength – in the 2.5 range – is effective for many people.
Start with lower strength products to minimize the redness, dry skin, and clogged pores caused by acne. Slowly increase the strength of your product and how often you use it until the treatment proves effective.
Combine products and ingredients. You may find it helpful to use products with different ingredients to treat stubborn acne symptoms. You could even use one product in the morning and a different one at night. And don’t be afraid to experiment until you find a product (and ingredient) that works for you.
As mentioned, we’ll discuss types of acne and treatments a bit later in this post. But let’s first take a look at our choices for the best men’s acne treatment products.
