If you’re suffering from body acne, or bacne, you know how embarrassing it can be, especially at all of the “wrong” moments! Fortunately, bacne treatments are easy and preventing it from coming back is as well. In this post I want to cover both the treatments and prevention because they are exactly the same.
The first step is to find an acne body wash. If you’re having success with your face wash take a look at its bottle and see what its active ingredient is. This is going to be what you’re looking for in your body wash. The best thing about these is that even the best acne treatments are fairly inexpensive and can be found at your local drug store. Swapping out your regular soap for an acne body wash is one of the most effective things that you can do treat and prevent bacne.
Next you want to keep your bed as clean as it can possibly be. This might sound gross, but while you sleep your sheets and pillow cases spread your skin’s oil all over the place, which can cause bacne breakouts. The trick is to swap out your sheets every couple days. To make this easier buy three or four sets of cheap sheets so that you’re not constantly having to do laundry.
The bonus step is to allow your skin as much time to “breathe” as you can. Clothing traps moisture at the skin’s surface which leads to more breakouts. Sleeping naked on clean sheets is an easy first step, but also make sure that you’re drying yourself off as much as you possibly can after showers, and be sure to shower after working out.
These three extremely easy steps will help get rid of any body acne that you currently have and will prevent it from coming back. Now get to work and comfortable in your own skin again!
