Once you start to notice the bumps diminishing, you can incorporate physical exfoliation (. scrubs!) every 7–10 days in addition to your non-physical exfoliation tactics. You don’t want to over-exfoliate, which is why I suggest only once every 7–10 days for a scrub in this instance. My two favorite scrubs are Skin Apotheke Ubtan Scrub and ARCONA Cranberry Gommage , since they both contain soothing ingredients and are inherently non-irritating. To use them (don’t use both — pick one), apply very gentle pressure and massage in circular motions for 1 minute, then leave it rest on your skin for a few minutes as a mask. Works like a charm!
How to get rid of chest acne : Key acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide period work on the chest, too. Dr. Nazarian recommends daily use of a Clarisonic combined with a gentle exfoliating cleanser like the Revision Papaya Enzyme Cleanser. "Twice a week, exfoliate with salicylic acid in the shower," she said. Treatment options are similar to the face and what you use depends on severity. Try an over-the-counter product like La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo , a fast-absorbing treatment cream with salicylic acid and anti-inflammatory niacinamide. And unlike benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid will not bleach fabrics. At night, a retinoid gel like Differin , will exfoliate skin and unclog pores. These are the best drugstore acne products that really work.
