Keep summer-ready skin all year long
Tips for staying acne-free all over
Last call for summer weather!
Hopefully you’ve enjoyed it and stayed skin-safe by applying sunscreen every day, every 2-3 hours!
Though we hate to see the beach and fun in the sun go away, showing off an acne-free body is an all-year thing. Just like with your face, managing acne on your body is simple but requires absolute consistency. Here’s how.
Choose an acne-safe body cleanser
Clear skin anywhere starts with clean skin. Irritants cause clogged pores, which leads to breakouts. A deep cleanse every morning and night is essential for every skincare routine. But beware: Not all body cleansers are created equal. Body acne requires gentle, effective cleansing ingredients to not do more harm than good. You’ll have to switch to a body wash that treats body acne specifically as your new full-body wash.
Stay moisturized, skin friends!
Dry skin is acne’s best friend. When the skin’s protective barrier isn’t healthy and balanced, your existing acne doesn’t heal and you’re more prone to new flare ups. After washing, apply a light body oil that hydrates the skin without clogging pores. This will keep the body radiant and glowing throughout the day while treating breakouts and preventing new ones. Moisturize your whole body–not just the parts that aren’t covered with your clothes.
