For me this is kind of an awkward topic, but everyone struggles with it. Especially for people who enjoy working out and being active. Sweating tends to clog pores a lot. I never really started getting body acne until I was older. I don’t know if these tips will work for everyone, but it’s what worked well for me!
Don’t apply heavy lotion– I have eczema and acne prone skin. It is the weirdest combination. I only put on lotion in places where I do not get acne. Which is basically my forearms, legs, and lower back. I do not apply lotion on my shoulders, upper arms, or upper back. I have found that it clogs my pores more. If you do however think your acne is due to dry skin then I recommend just applying a non comedogenic moisturizer. My favorite is Jergens lotion.
Use a very basic body wash– Do not get a body wash or soap based on how it smells. I have found that those types of body washes clogs pores. I recommend finding a non comedogenic wash or some sort of natural soap to wash your body with.
Use a loofa or a scrub brush– I used to never use something to scrub my body. I would only use soap. One day my mom brought home a scrub brush and it changed everything. I recommend scrubbing your back, arms, chest, and back. It really helps to unclog your pores.
Don’t wear tight fitting clothing– Whenever I wear I super tight sports bra I always get pimples where the straps are. I switched to some looser fitting sports bras that are made of cotton and I have not had problems since!
Acne Serum– At times I will get some pesky pimples that are hard to get rid of. I just put a little of the serum on before bed and then in the morning it is all dried up.
I hope that these things work for you. If you have any tips that work for you guys leave them down below!
