As most acne sufferers know, breakouts often appear on places other than the face. When you breakout on your back or chest, it’s easy to cover up with clothing, but with the warmer weather around the corner, wearing a turtleneck will no longer be an option. Acne is caused by many different factors and body acne is no different. There is something called acne mechanica, which is a form of acne caused by heat coupled with covered skin and friction. If you are seeing breakouts on an area on your body that is usually covered by straps on a backpack or if you wear a lot of tight clothing, then try wearing your backpack or clothing looser until the acne clears up. Cleanse body with a medicated acne wash or try blue light therapy on the back to clear up acne before summer time.
