Although the location of the blemishes may be different, the body acne cycle is the same. But depending on the area on which you’re breaking out, other factors can come into play and exacerbate the problem. Have you been overlooking one of these three possible causes?
Perspiration acts like a film that traps oil, dirt and debris in the pore. If you work out or you’re prone to sweating, be sure to shower frequently.
Wearing clothing that doesn’t breathe-especially when perspiring-traps sweat against the skin. Irritating fabric can cause breakouts as well, since the skin reacts to the friction.
Skincare products can clog pores anywhere on the body. Depending on where you’re breaking out, consider the products that come in contact with your skin. Hair products, body lotions and even detergents or fabric softeners may be to blame.
