How to Treat Body Acne

Body acne is caused by sweat that clog skin pores and lead to breakouts all over. Tight fitting clothing can cause the acne as well as it could traps sweat against the skin, leading to clogged pores and blemishes. Stress and hormones are another factor. Usually the body acne would affect our chest and back.

The Treatment
Wash your body everyday with a salicylic acid based cleanser. It can zap body acne and prevent it from coming back. If you are using any product for the treatment, try to look for this ingredient on product labels.

Don't skip shower, especially when you are sweating. Follow up by a body moisturizer that contains Alfa Hydroxy acid. This ingredient could exfoliate skin and help prevent breakouts, without drying the skin out.

At Night, you can apply an acne zapping gel or cream at the effected parts before going to bed.
