Skincare for Acne



You’re a grown man, so why are you still breaking out like an awkward teenager? No matter what you try, it seems nothing works, and you’re left with skin that is irritated and unsexy.

We feel you, bro. You’re not alone. Tons of guys deal with acne even into their forties and fifties. So what’s causing it? Let’s find out… and also find out how to fix it. 

What Causes Acne?

Acne may be caused by factors like genetics, environment, the way you take care of your skin, or even how you don’t take care of your skin. 

If your skin is naturally on the oily side, your skin produces more sebum (face oil). This oil helps keep your skin lubricated, but too much of it can work like glue, attaching to dirt and dead skin cells on your skin and clogging your pores. 

No matter what’s causing your acne, you just need it gone. The best solution is to take better care of your skin. 

If you’ve been using the same stuff for the past ten years, it’s time to level up, and that’s where we can help. 

Disco is the men’s skincare brand with products specifically formulated for the pH balance of men’s skin. What you find in your local big box store is typically formulated for women’s skin, which is why it might not work for you. 

Our skin care is natural, clean, effective, and made for dudes. Another bonus -- it’s sustainable and environmentally friendly. 

Skincare for Acne

When we developed our skincare, we knew we needed to provide a solution for guys with acne. We don’t mean to brag, but we hit the nail on the head. 

We worked with our dermatologists to develop products that help regulate your skin’s oil production and avoid stripping the skin of natural moisture -- another acne-triggering condition. 

Here’s how to keep your skin clear with the right products. 


You need more than water to cleanse your skin. If you’re using the same bar soap you use on the rest of your body, that won’t cut it either. Your face needs VIP treatment, and ingredients that cleanse your skin of dirt, oil, and grime, without stripping it of natural moisture. 

A cleanser that contains natural ingredients like coconut oil to cleanse and hydrate and charcoal to deep dive into pores and pull out impurities will help balance your skin’s natural moisture.


You need to exfoliate, especially if you have acne-prone skin. 

Exfoliation is the process of removing the top layer of dead skin cells to help stimulate new skin growth and keep your pores clean. Not just any exfoliation product is safe for acne-prone skin. Some have granules that are too large and can damage your skin. 

Use an exfoliant that contains papaya. 

Papaya contains a natural exfoliating enzyme that helps gently break down dead skin cells, making it easy for them to be washed away. 

Mask Up

A facial mask once or twice a week can help pull dirt and oil from deep within your pores, so you experience less breakouts. 

Bentonite clay is an excellent, all-natural ingredient that absorbs impurities before they have the chance to form pimples on your skin. 


Even acne-prone and oily skin types need moisture. 

Disco’s facial moisturizer is perfect for men’s skin and helps bring all skin types -- even acne-prone -- back into balance. You’ll get perfectly balanced skin that breaks out less and feels more comfortable. 

Bottom Line

Acne-prone skin is usually skin that’s in dire need of better skincare. You can get clearer, more clarified skin by using better products from Disco.
