Body acne is frustrating and embarrassing for those who suffer from it. Who can remember a skipped school dance or a missed afternoon with friends at the beach because of this annoying condition?
Body acne can be difficult to treat and generally doesn’t respond to traditional treatment methods which often include rounds of oral antibiotics. Getting rid of body acne includes the right amount of exfoliation and topical antibacterial action to prevent the formation of micro acne lesions, the beginning of the vicious acne cycle.
Treatment for body acne means having a consistent morning and evening home care routine in addition to regular professional treatments for at least a 3-month period before seeing any significant results.
If your body acne or back acne is inflamed, red, painful and pustular, you need less aggressive exfoliation (at least initially) and more antibacterial products. An interesting side note on inflamed acne, we often see bad cases of inflammation on the body linked to frequent whey or soy protein shake use and/or steroids for bodybuilding. These products act like hormones in the body and if taken in excess can trigger acne flare-ups.
If your body acne is non-inflamed with a bumpy texture made up of lots of blackheads and build-up, you need more exfoliation and less antibacterial action. In addition to an exfoliating serum, we advise cleansing twice a day with an exfoliating cleanser to smooth the bumpy texture and loosen the build-up.
