10 Body Washes to Help Clear Body Acne featured image

Not all body cleansers are made the same, and they shouldn’t be considering each person’s skin has different needs. While some need an ultra-gentle body wash, others wish they could use their acne face wash head to toe. That would be an expensive habit, not to mention they’re not all formulated for the full body, so we have the solution for you. If you’re looking to clear blemishes below the neck, swap your standard body wash for a body wash that helps combat body acne.

Typology Anti-Blemish Body Wash with 6% Glycolic Acid ($21)

This bottle will look beautiful sitting in your shower, but that’s not its biggest benefit. The formula is concentrated with glycolic acid to promote exfoliating effects. It helps unclog pores, reduce blemishes and even prevent ingrown hairs.

Iota Supervitamin Body Wash+ Detoxifying ($23)

Not all body washes pay attention to skin health, which can leave skin dry and dull with signs of acne or accelerated aging.
