Double Trouble: Facial Hair & Acne

Written by  

According to the American Academy of Dermatology and the Society for Investigative Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting up to 50 million Americans annually. Acne can reveal itself in people of all ages. Some contributing factors include clogged pores with dead skin cells, excess oils, bacteria overgrowth, and inflammation.  

One major area where acne can cause distressing issues is the face. We can’t just hide our faces. Combined with unwanted facial hair, you potentially have a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. 

Facial hair growth and acne can be due partly to genetics, hormonal changes, health issues, or diet. Acne beneath facial hair growth might be harmless in some cases but can also indicate a more significant problem, especially concerning bacteria. 

The Statista Research Department in 2021 stated that the over-the-counter revenue of retail acne products and medicines in the United States was estimated to be around $270 million, an increase from $204 million dollars in 2017.  

This statistic alone should be enough to show how in-demand skin care professionals are. If you are passionate about helping clients with acne and facial hair problems, there is no lack of business. All you need to do is learn as much as possible about treating acne and unwanted facial hair and provide real results to each client. Your reputation will soon follow, and your business will grow. Of course, lots of social media before and after pictures and videos will help with growth too.
