Let’s get rid of bacne and keep it from coming back! No matter where it pops up, acne is no fun! As someone who’s suffered from breakouts all over my body I know how disheartening it can be to forgo a cute backless top all because of zits! I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel and you too can pose proudly shirtless on an odd white painted box in downtown LA.lol Read on for ways to treat current body acne and keep it at bay despite a busy lifestyle.
This is first on the list for a reason! Making sure to include all breakout prone areas in your cleansing routine is paramount. Dirt, dried sweat from a workout you did an hour ago, oils from hands/hair/products are all clogging pores and leading to breakouts. Make a point to cleanse these areas well when you shower, immediately post workout, and or before you go to bed! If you’re not showering right away, ok fine, I wish you would but a thorough cleansing wipe will do!
