How to Help Fight Body Breakouts

1. Pick the right body wash. Cleansing is so, so important when it comes to keeping skin looking as healthy as it can be. Treat the skin on the rest of your body as would your face—don't just cleanse it with any ol' bar soap and think it'll do. (It won't. Bar soaps won’t strip your skin of essential moisture and leave behind a residue that can clog pores, which lead to breakouts). For daily use, our aestheticians always suggest A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap for troubled skin; it has revitalizing alpha hydroxy acids that help dissolve away excess oil, dirt, and dead skin cells to help reveal clearer-looking skin. Two to three times a week, try using the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser on affected areas (like your back, chest, arms, and/or behind the legs).


2. Tone. You know toner is crucial to your cleansing routine, so why would your bodycare regimen be any different? You'll find that a quick sweep of Special Cucumber Cleansing Lotion "O" (which was specially formulated for targeting troubled skin on the body) will remove excess sebum and leave your skin feeling that much more refreshed.

3. Target problem areas. Two times a week, apply a thin, even layer of the Drying Mask onto trouble spots to deep clean skin and help dry up surface blemishes. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, rinse off well, and follow with the Special Cleansing Lotion "O." For added reinforcement, you can use our Drying Lotion, Buffering Lotion, or Drying Cream to further target spots while you sleep.
