Body Acne

Although most of the acne treatment industry prefers to focus on facial acne, since it’s the most obvious and also most common of all types, there are still many people suffering from acne flare-ups on their backs and upper arms. Another factor that contributes to this situation is the resistance to treatments of back acne. The skin on your back is made of tougher tissues than facial skin and its thousands of follicles produce far more oil, which means that a pore’s chances of clogging and turning into a pimple are much bigger.

The same goes for your chest and upper arms. These areas of the body are less exposed to dust and airborne pollution, but suffer from increased exposure to sweat and from the irritation caused by clothes and backpacks. This irritation is one of the causes behind acne flare-ups and can sometimes bring dormant acne back. But since you cannot go around naked, especially since dust would simply replace clothes as an irritation factor, you have to do something about acne.

Our recommendation is the ClearPores anti-acne system, one of the few on the market to come with a body wash and cream alongside the staple facial products. The oil-free body wash will help you fight acne on your back, chest and arms by unclogging your pores and expelling all the bacteria and oil that cause pimples and other blemishes. Aside from the body wash containing SD Alcohol and Salicylic Acid, the system includes herbal pills, which fight acne-causing bacteria from the inside, and a protection cream that keeps your skin healthy and acne-free through the day.
