Body acne is very annoying and can make you not feel confident.
This is what you do:
Check the outfits you are wearing. The clothing you wear can cause acne. Switch from tight, non breathable fabrics to loose, breathable cotton.
Your heavy bag strap can actually cause it too if you wear it over your shoulder. And the bra you wear can also cause it it’s too tight and rubs against your skin.
Lotions, moisturisers and hair products contain ingredients that can be causing body acne too. Make sure they are non comedogenic. ( Meaning they won’t clog your pores).
Avoid shampoo and conditioner on body. Wash it after shampooing and conditioning.
After working out you might just want to chill out and rest. But you have to quickly change and shower if you don’t want acne!
If you can’t shower, use wipes or a washcloth with warm water. And carry spare clean clothing to change if you can!
Your bed sheets collect dirt, sweat, bacteria and oils. Make sure to keep them clean and change very often.
If you see that you are sweating, make sure to rinse it off. Or use wipes or a washcloth with water.
If you have body acne, you need a body wash with AHA/BHA.
Another you can use is African Black Soap, Charcoal Soap and Tea Tree Soap.
Using soap/body wash that is too harsh for the skin if it is on the sensitive side also causes acne. Get an unscented, gentle soap.
Do not over wash and over scrub. Exfoliating and cleansing definitely help but it’s important to be gentle because overdoing it can cause irratation and makes it even worse.
Fabric softener can cause acne too.
Loofahs collect bacteria. The best thing to wash your body with is a Salux Cloth. Another great thing about it is that it is long so you can easily reach your back. Long brush. You can always use your hands.
A spin brush is also a thing you can try to really cleanse.
Let’s be real, we don’t wash our bra that often do we? But try doing so.
You can also make a salt spray to spray on the body. Green Tea, Apple Cider Vinegar And Tea Tree Oil.
Shower daily once or twice and change into clean clothes.
Tea tree oil.
Apple Cider Vinegar.
