3 Tips To Treat Body Acne For Flawless Summer Skin
Have you ever noticed that your back, chest and butt have some pores? Take a good look in the mirror.
Unfortunately, these pores can get clogged and cause acne breakouts all over our body. It’s bad enough to have these blemishes on our face.
While we can’t see it especially if the pimple is on our back, it doesn’t help that we can feel it, like a disturbing thought at the back of our head. Here are a few tips to reduce body acne for a flawless summer bod you can flaunt with pride.
1. Choose a cleanser that targets body acne
Instead of using a regular body cleanser, choose one that targets body acne. Ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid and tea tree oil, for example, would be ones found in cleansers that heal body acne. These cleansers are gentle and effective at the same time. Give T3 Acne Body Wash or Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash a try.
2. Exfoliate your body and your booty
Now we know to exfoliate our face at least once a week to get rid of dead cells on the surface of our skin. It would simply make sense to do the same with our body. Give your body the love it deserves with a good scrub once a week, like Watsons Argan Body Scrub. Remember to use a physical exfoliator too, like a loofah while you’re at it to reach different parts of your back.
3. Rethink your shower routine
If conditioner is the last thing you rinse off in the shower, you may want to rethink and rearrange your bath routine. According to Kendall Jenner’s dermatologist, Christie Kidd, M.D., we tend to step out of our shower with conditioner residue on our bodies. Ingredients found in hair conditioner tend to irritate our skin if not washed away properly. So, instead of placing conditioner as the last step in your shower routine, replace your last step with body wash instead. Or give your body a good rinse after cleansing away the conditioner.
