Did you know men produce more sebum (the oily substance that protects the skin) than women? This is because testosterone stimulates the production of sebum. However, when the body produces too much sebum, it can mix with dead skin skills and clog the pores, leading to acne.

Just as with women, men may experience adult acne as a result of hormone fluctuations that cause an overproduction of testosterone, increasing sebum output. Therefore, if you’re suddenly experiencing breakouts, along with proper skin hygiene, you may want to look at how you can balance your hormones with diet, lifestyle changes, and supplementation.
