Do men get hormonal acne?

As a man, is there any way my acne is hormonal, or does this cause only apply for women?

Hi Jordan,
Yes, men can develop hormonal acne if there is an imbalance in your testosterone levels causing the oil glands to produce an over abundance of sebum. Having an over production of oil can make it hard for your body to fight off the bacteria. To keep the acne at bay I would suggest going to a professional and getting your hormones tested. Also a good skin care routine can help tons!
