How to get rid of chest acne.
There was the back acne post and then someone specifically requested I make a post about chest acne (I think more people deal with this than back acne). So, i’ll let you know as much as I can.Yellow heart
There are a couple of tricks and products that can help you deal with chest acne:
1. Shower more; especially post work out. Don’t sit in your gym clothes long after working out Flushed face.
2. Use an anti-bacterial body wash filled with benzoyl peroxide (which fights bacteria) or salicylic acid (which exfoliates). Both will treat existing breakouts while working to prevent more.
PICK: SALICYLIC ACID BODY WASH
NEUTROGENA BODY CLEAR BODY WASH
3. Revisit your eating habits: Most times we forget that what goes in our mouths is as important as the skin care routine. There are a few foods that have been linked to acne: dairy and sugar (yes, including wine and lots of carbs), both of which can mess with your hormones and promote inflammation. You might want to cut down intake or completely stay off those.
4. EXFOLIATE: You can choose to use a gentle body scrub to remove dead skin cells and pore-blocking buildup that could be causing your breakouts. If a gritty scrub feels too abrasive for the delicate skin on your chest, please try chemical exfoliation.
Try any of these:
Amlactin daily moisturizing body lotion
AVEENO POSITIVELY RADIANT SOAP-FREE EXFOLIATING BODY WASH
5. STOP POPPING OR TOUCHING
If you’re thinking that a quick pop will hurry along the healing process, think again. The chest and back are two areas on your body that heal more poorly and can scar more easily, so hands off.
6. SPOT TREATMENT
As soon as you notice a new zit showing up, spot treat with either benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid (as mentioned earlier).
