Help for Body Acne

Acne is not just a problem that you find on your face. In fact, if you suffer from acne at all, you may find that you have it in other places on your body. Typically, people find that they do have acne breakouts on the back of their arms, back and buttocks. When you treat body acne, you will follow many of the same steps used to treat acne on your face.

There are many things that can cause body acne. Sometime, you may just be more prone to acne. Other times, sweating, tight clothing or poor personal hygiene may cause body acne. Even hormones can cause body acne. You can treat body acne by following a few simple steps.

First of all, if tight clothing causes your body acne, then you will want to stop wearing that particular article of clothing. Bras are often the cause of acne on the back. You may even find that carrying a backpack or other large bag frequently can lead to acne on the back. Next, you will want to make sure that you use a good body cleanser that is specifically made for body acne. Neutrogena makes gels and soaps for this particular purpose. If you workout and suspect that sweating may be the cause of your body acne, then you need to make sure you shower immediately after your workout. Use clean towels after you exercise and make sure that you always wash your clothes between workouts.

If you do use over the counter acne remedies, then you need to make sure you keep your body well moisturized. Find a product that does not clog the pores for the best results. These are often fragrance free and contain no added chemicals. You can control your body acne with a few easy steps.
