Body Acne

 –  Acne is a skin condition that can affect both your face and body. While body acne may not be as visible because you can use clothing to conceal breakouts, the condition can be uncomfortable and can make it hard to wear your favorite attire. At drugstore.com, we carry products that target body acne. These products are formulated with ingredients that gently cleanse acne-prone skin and remove dead skin cells that contribute to acne breakouts on your body. Also available are treatment products with ingredients that target pimples and blackheads directly.

Why Do I Have Body Acne?



Like facial acne, body acne stems from clogged pores. When dirt, oils, dead skin cells, and bacteria block the openings, or pores, on the surface of the skin, it leads to inflammation and the red bumps and pustules we know of as acne. You can develop acne on almost any part of your body, although it's most common on the neck, chest and back.

Cleansing Acne-Prone Skin



As any dermatologist will tell you, fighting acne starts with gentle but effective cleansing. drugstore.com carries a variety of cleansers formulated for acne-prone skin. Available are cleansers with acne-fighting ingredients like benzoyl peroxide that help kill the bacteria that contribute to acne.

Another ingredient in some acne-cleansing products for the body is salicylic acid, which is recommended by dermatologists. Salicylic acid gently lifts away dead skin cells that block the opening of pores while making your skin feel softer and smoother. Choose from cleansing bars, washes, and gentle scrubs. If you prefer a natural approach, drugstore.com carries oil-free cleansers made with soothing plant-based ingredients.

Treatment Products



Once you've removed oil, dirt, and dead skin cells with an appropriate cleanser, give your body an additional dose of acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid with an acne treatment spray. With a spray you can reach those hard-to-access areas like your back quickly and easily for better acne control. Ingredients like salicylic acid are also effective at reducing the risk of future breakouts.
