Body scrub

Have you heard that you shouldn’t scrub your body with acne parts, Because the acne is going to spread all over your body?

This is right and wrong

It is really important and good and helpful for your skin but if you rub too harsh or too often Your skin will get irritated and your acne will get worse. So you should scrub your body without irritation.

 if you have acne-prone skin I recommend you exfoliate twice a week to remove unnecessary sebum without skin irritation.

Using scrubs when using tools we recommend you use a puff with microfibers or a soft body brush

If it’s your first time using them it might feel a little awkward, But it will successfully remove dead cells, germs between the pores And you’ll see the improvement if you use it for two weeks.

Apply body soap on microfiber puffs and massage your body to exfoliate.

It is useful to wipe out easily darken spots Like legs, feet, knees, and armpit. When using a body brush soak it in warm water for 10 minutes.

And then apply your body stuff and massage your body If it’s your first time using a body brush choose brushes that’s made of nylon.

Nylon brushes are softer than cactus or pig bristle brushes, So you may feel less refreshed, but for beginners, we still recommend a nylon brush.

using tools: When you’re looking for scrubs We should look for particles that are round, because round particles exfoliate without irritation Don’t melt for too long in the water.

If you want to just simply cleanse your body then just make enough foams and mix it with water

Applying lotions

 Some of you guys may be suffering from back acne because of your bad habits of applying lotion.

For example, if you thought, I’m gonna apply body oil because I have dry skin Or I don’t need to apply body lotion because I have oily skin, Please pay attention! Whether you have dry skin or not after showering or scrubbing you always have to hydrate your body

Light texture lotions mostly have mild ingredients so they will fit most skin types Because they are absorbed quickly They are good for dry skin and lightly oily skin types.

 Apply lotion when your body still has moisture, so that’s about Five minutes Apply more delicately with the areas where they have lighter skin like the top of your foot, collarbone, or your knees They are easily chapped or broken out in a rash.

For those areas where you can’t reach apply body mist like on your back, You need to avoid ingredients like Shea butter and coconut oil. That’s going to cause acne. And also ethanol is going to disturb moisturization.

I recommend ingredients like Sulfur, Witch-Hazel, Azulene, and ceramide that are often used to cure acne

 Lifestyle habits

You should fix your lifestyle habits to get rid of acne and get to a clear body, Even though you apply good products and remove your acne. if your lifestyle is bad these problems will reoccur.

So let’s learn how to get rid of our bad habits and get to a healthy lifestyle for clear skin.

Firstly, don’t expose yourself at high temperature for long hours, If you’re exposed to hot water shower, baths, saunas Sunlight or even heaters, your water-oil balance is going to break and cause acne.

  •  Avoid a humid environment

To help prevent acne, it’s better to wear sweat-absorbent outfits and use air conditioners and humidifiers To control the humidity.

Especially, we sweat a lot in the summer which is causing acne on our chests and backs, So when we’re lying down, our back is going to be damp with sweat so our back cannot breathe. Also, damp environments and Demodex folliculorum from unclean bedding can highly affect acne.

  • Bad eating habits

If you consume high ratios of carbohydrates, It can disturb hormones and worsen acne. If you enjoy fried foods, fast foods, junk foods, or oily foods You are more probable of having acne symptoms.

It is not that all people with bad eating habits all suffer from acne, but people who do suffering from acne problems should take care of your eating habits.

  •  Harsh diets

If you are going on a strict diet, It can provoke problems inside your body and break the water-oil balance And as a warning, it’s going to form acne.

  •  Drink water on an empty stomach in the morning

If you drink warm water on an empty stomach when you wake up, bowel movements can prevent constipation, You can release toxins inside your body and improve acne. So try to drink some water when you wake up.

  •  Stress and irregular sleeping problems

If you don’t go to bed at the appropriate time and sleep at dawn This is going to release Keratin and expedite sebum secretion

If this repeats it will cause acne.

 if your body’s tiredness is accumulated This will cause body problems and stimulate sebaceous glands to arose acne.

 Especially acne on the back is closely related to bowel and stomach So you have to try hard to effectively improve your lifestyle and relieve your stress.
