Body acne

All those suffering from acne know it well, that these little irritants don’t just limit themselves to the facial area. A lot of people suffering from acne find that they also often develop Body Acne. Body Acne is usually indicative of your acne being very severe.

What causes Body Acne?
Before we dive into the treatment options, let’s take a look at what causes these pesky little irritants. Acne is generally a result of clogged pores due to oil, dirt or other debris. Body Acne specifically is also at its core, just that – a bunch of clogged pores. However, when these clogged pores start swelling up to make a place for the build-up, or pus, we start to notice reddish, inflamed lesions on our back.

Some of the reasons that could be contributing to your Body Acne could be as follows:

  • A lot of times, genetics plays a very crucial role in how your body reacts. So if your parents have the tendency to facial, or Body Acne, it is very likely that you will also experience this.
  • Lack of proper skin care, including a non-skin-friendly body wash, could trigger Body Acne. It is therefore very important to maintain proper skin hygiene in order to keep Body Acne at bay.
  • Hormonal imbalance, especially during menstruation, pregnancy or when you hit puberty, could also be a major factor that would trigger Body Acne
  • Acne breakouts could also be a result of an allergic reaction to either environmental factors or to certain skin products that you use.
  • Often, after exercising, we tend to get lazy or too tired to quickly jump in the shower. This allows the bacteria and sweat to interact, and that could lead to acne breakouts.
