It’s frustrating right? You have good hygiene and clean your face often but it seems no matter how hard you try, there is a new pimple popping up every week. There are many reasons why the dreaded zit keeps coming back forcing you to scowl at the reflection in the mirror. Maybe you need a better skin care routine or just need to let go some of the stress that has been building up. Either way it’s helpful to know common reasons why your face is breaking out to best determine how to not only get rid of but also to prevent future little devils from plaguing your face. Check out this blog to learn about the reasons why your face is always breaking out.
You Are Not Getting Enough Sleep
First and foremost, sleep is essential for your health. Not getting enough sleep messes with your energy and motor skills as well as leading to various health problems when you reach the level of sleep deprivation. Catching those Z’s is so important that even missing the recommended six to eight hours can harm the skin. In fact, not getting enough sleep can cause your glands to overcompensate and produce extra sebum, which makes acne even worse. So, if you just got a new job, recently became a parent or just party way too much, do yourself a favor and get more sleep. You’d be surprised how great you’d feel and look with a little nap.
Change Out Your Pillow Case
You lay your head on the pillow every night leaving behind dirt and grime from the day. This creates a buildup that you don’t want back on your face and seeping into your pores… Gross! Actually according to GQ, you should be changing your pillowcases every few days to get rid of the day-to-day dirt, grease, and bacteria that rub off on them while you’re sleeping. If you notice a new pimple in the morning, your pillowcase could be the culprit. Wash and change out your pillowcase and see if that helps minimize your breakouts.
Lack Of Skin Care Routine
This is a big one because most people feel that as long they’re washing their face, their skin will always be vibrant. Well that may work for some people but if you are breaking out, then that’s not the case for you. Everyone’s skin is different. Some have naturally oily skin, some have dry skin and some (which we all secretly love to hate) have a great balance of both not really needing to do too much. But because your face is breaking out, it’s safe to assume you have a skin type that needs a little extra care. The best thing to do is talk to your salon specialists and see if they have products to create a good skin care routine for your skin type.
You May Not Be Cleaning Your Beard Properly
It took a while to get right. We get it, you love your beard. Remember, just like you need to regularly wash your hair, the same goes for the added hair on your face. By not washing your beard regularly, you are allowing the dirt and sweat to stay locked in the skin that houses your facial hair. Basically, this is the perfect spot for acne to thrive and you are the enabler. So wash your beard, wash your face and if you are ready for a bald face, go to your salon to ensure you remove the hair correctly. This will help eliminate razor burn, rashes, or awkward pieces of toilet paper hanging from the face where all the cuts were made.
You’re Out In The Sun For Too Long
It feels good to spend time soaking in the sun, but it can take a toll on your skin. That’s because the sun gives off ultraviolet (UV) light that damages your skin and causes sunburn. Over time, these rays can lead to wrinkles, dark spots, and other problem areas. The result: You can add years to your looks. Research shows that UV exposure is the reason behind 80% of your skin’s aging (Source).
If you are experiencing signs of aging, talk to the experts at your local CA men’s only salon to see what anti-aging skin services they have available. Today keeping a youthful appearance is important for all men of all ages. Keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay via intense cleansing & exfoliation, advanced masking which includes an eye wrinkle treatment, the application of an anti-aging serum and a pressure point massage during the application of 30spf sunblock.
Your Diet Is Out Of Control
Ah, the good old saying “you are what you eat.” By now you know that isn’t literal but is still important to live by. If you eat healthy, you’ll feel and look healthy. The same goes for greasy and heavy foods. When you have uncontrollable breakouts, there’s a good chance your diet plays a part.

Stress Has Taken Over
Stress causes acne and acne causes stress. It’s a vicious circle. Constant stress isn’t good for your health or your skin. Find ways to relax and reduce stress. This could be as easy as getting more sleep or investing in a hobby that you love. Obviously, there is so much more to stress than can be explained in this paragraph. The simplest thing you can do is target what is causing the stress and make the necessary changes it takes to feel more relaxed.
Too Much Acne Products
Seriously? All those reasons above cause stress and now you have to worry about putting too much acne cream on too? Yikes. But unfortunately, yes, too much product can also cause acne. According to GQ, over-applying products like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide can actually dry out your skin, which, as we mentioned earlier, will force it to overcompensate with oil and sebum, making breakouts more frequent. As for trying to pop a pimple that isn’t ready? Chances are it’ll end up more noticeable (Source).
