Body Acne:  Don't Wait to Take Your Shirt Off! How to Treat Your Body Acne Now for Summer

Spring is almost here, and before you know it, summer will be upon us. Don't wait to take your shirt off to get rid of your body acne. If you start now, by then, you will have made some clear skin to show off! Here are our top tips on how to say "goodbye!" to body acne.

Cause of Body Acne
Women and men that have active physical lifestyles tend to suffer more with body acne primarily due to androgens that are the main stimulator of sebaceous glands. Acne results from the over secretion of sebum by the sebaceous glands and inflammation that follows too much sebum clogging the pores and mixing with acne bacteria that will cause inflammation known as pimples, cysts, lesions, etc. More acne occurs where the skin surface has a greater concentration of sebaceous glands, and where perspiration is more prevailing. The most common sites for acne are, therefore, the face, back and chest.

Treatment for Body Acne
Since body acne (acne on the chest, back, shoulders and neck) is harder to treat then facial acne, it requires a longer and more intense treatment regimen to see results.  The back is made up of tougher skin with thousands of sebaceous glands that can produce excess levels of oil, making this area more susceptible to the formation of cysts and nodules which actually require a longer treatment period.

Body Acne Do's and Don'ts

1 - Take a shower following exercise. This will help to wash away excess oils, sweat and dead skin cells preventing bacteria to settle in your clogged pores (reducing the incidence of body acne).

2 - Wear loose clothing made from natural, breathable fabrics like cotton and linen. This clothing will decrease perspiration and will not rub sweat and oil in to the skin.

3 - Diet and Lifestyle. Cutting out greasy, fatty foods, and sugary foods as well as trying to reduce everyday stress can help rebalance your body.

4 - Harsh acne agents are not recommended since they can dry and irritate the skin. Drying soaps and harsh cleansers containing salicylic acid or alcohol can not only dry and irritate, but they can actually stimulate more oil secretion as the skin will try to protect itself against the dryness. Instead, Witch Hazel can be used to enhance your daily cleaning routine since it also reduces inflammation and its astringent properties help skin tissue regenerate.

5 - Our Soothing Body Acne Oil helps calm inflammation and redness. The essential oils have antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties, which also help to control the bacteria on the skin surface.


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon calendula oil
  • 1 teaspoon almond oil
  • 2 drops tea tree oil
  • 1 drop lavender oil
  • 1 drop chamomile oil


Blend all the oils together and keep in a dark glass bottle. Massage daily over all the acne areas. When the skin has absorbed the oil, freshen with a mixture of witch hazel or aloe vera gel. The gel contains a hormone that accelerates wound healing, and it has mild antiseptic and antibiotic qualities.

And remember, treatment + support is really a winning combination in overcoming your acne.
