There's no hiding from it: Acne is an inevitable struggle that continues on well after our prepubescent middle-school days. We're certainly not thrilled about dealing with random breakouts for the rest of our lives, but if we must, we might as well arm ourselves with the tools to treat irritated skin whenever it flares up (which is always at the worst possible time).
Body acne acne is even trickier to hide, especially if a vacation or strapless jumpsuit is in your future. Bacne, underarm bumps, and chest and butt acne can make putting on that special outfit particularly stressful, but with the right products, you can clear it up quickly. Peel pads and spot treatments do wonders, but the real work starts in the shower — with body wash.
