Acne treatments should be a part of every man's skin care collection. Acne occurs when oily secretions from your skin plug your pores, causing blackheads, whiteheads and even cysts (infected pockets of pus beneath the surface of the skin). Failing to treat acne right away and then prevent it in the future can lead to more serious problems and complications, including permanent scarring that leaves either pits or discolored blemishes on your face. Acne is very common: Nearly 80% of people between the ages of 11 and 30 will suffer from acne outbreaks during their life.

Acne is most common in adolescents but plagues adulthood too, and teen boys are more likely to suffer from acne than are girls the same age. Unfortunately, the acne treatment industry has all but forgotten about men. Today's man has to swim through a sea of products geared toward women, just to find something that looks a little neutral. And even then, that product isn't made with a man's skin in mind.

At Tiege Hanley, we've developed a line of skin care products designed just for men including ACNE, the new Tiege Hanley Daily Moisturizing Acne Cream, checking off your wish list for safe, effective, manly skin care solutions. ACNE and the other components of this skin care line are designed to address the needs of both teen boys and adult men, hydrating, nourishing, cleansing, exfoliating and even battling the signs of aging without leaving behind even a trace of girly scent.

Hormonal Acne

Hormonal acne is a common term, but the real causes of acne usually aren't hormonal according to Dr. Lawrence Gibson, a Mayo Clinic dermatologist. Instead, acne is caused by more common problems that really aren't that hard to treat: bacteria, excessively dry skin, excessively oily skin and clogged pores, for example.

The moral of the story? Choose a product like Tiege Hanley ACNE, which addresses the underlying issues and doesn't leave you guessing (whether you're going to have glitter in your beard when you're done, for example). As a matter of fact, Dr. Gibson goes on to describe how many skin care companies claim to balance hormones by incorporating "natural hormones" into the formula, but did you know that these natural hormones usually come from plants, rendering them almost useless when it comes to correcting your acne?

Acne Treatment for Teens

As teen boys experience the hormonal changes associated with puberty, their skin changes too. Their oil glands enlarge and increase oil production. This excess oil clogs pores and causes blemishes to appear. Dry skin, stress, sweating inside helmets or collars, certain medications and genetics can also contribute to the development of acne in teens. Additionally, many teen boys don't know how to care for their changing skin or what products are available for them. 

Acne can significantly impact a teen's game by getting in the way of friendships and dating and making them self-conscious when performing or presenting in front of a group. While prescription treatments are available, over-the-counter treatments can often be just as effective when you choose the right treatment for the right skin. It's important to note that the most effective acne treatment isn't just a cleanser, but a multi-step system designed to provide your skin with the hydration and nourishment it needs to combat acne and flourish long-term.


We understand that it also has to be easy, so we've stepped up to the plate on that front as well. Tiege Hanley takes away the guessing game with our line of manly skin care products, which give you everything you need to combat teen acne and stay on your game. A simple monthly prescription service delivers everything you need to stay clear and handsome right to your doorstep so you can keep up with your social life, academics and athletics without missing a beat.

Adult Acne Treatment

Adult acne treatment created for men by men can be hard to find. Your local department store is loaded with personal skin care products: lotions, moisturizers, masks, scrubs, polishes and more. While the endless options might feel like heaven itself for a woman hunting for the right product, it can feel like the fiery depths of hell for the standard man, who just wants skin care to be simple.

Skin care is important for everyone, but if you're suffering from acne, it's probably catapulted itself to the top of your list, leaving you wondering where to start. Let's consider your probable priorities when shopping for skin care: 

  1. Do you feel comfortable being in the beauty aisle?
  2. Can you tell the difference between a product design for women vs. men? 
  3. You need real results that are quick and effortless.
  4. You need simple application.

No worries. Tiege Hanley's skin care line, including ACNE, answers the call of men everywhere. The line uses 1.6% Salicylic Acid, a step up from the treatments that attack acne with less effective, harsher Benzoyl Peroxide. While you might recoil at the thought of Salicylic Acid—which can be super effective but dry and tighten your skin more than you want—the experts at Tiege Hanley applied innovation and science to tackle that, too. ACNE pairs this highly effective chemical with a nourishing moisturizer designed just for men to counter the dryness and oiliness that other acne treatments cause.

Perhaps more importantly, it's the acne treatment of your manly dreams: there is no shopping required (it ships right to your door), won't leave you sparkling or shimmering, smells like a lumberjack (we're exaggerating), treats acne safely and effectively, and you can't possibly mess it up. Tiege Hanley's system is designed to give the regular guy the best version of everything he needs and nothing more, all at a great price.

We're standing by with the best monthly subscription out there for today's urban man who wants products that can actually hold a candle to everything women have to choose from—at twice the convenience and a portion of the price. Try discount code Handsomer10 during checkout to get 10% off your first set.
