The worst part about body acne isn’t about it being visible but about it being unreachable. But instead of challenging your arms’ flexibility, this body acne spray from Bliss can give you a much-needed helping hand to target those hard-to-reach areas. The nozzle makes it easy to spray on, while salicylic acid, witch hazel, niacinamide, zinc PCA, and cica are perfect for calming skin on contact.

6Versed Back-Up Plan Acne-Control Body Mist

Formulated with 2% salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and witch hazel, you can target your body acne wherever it may pop up. And yes, you can even spray this into your face mask for maskne prevention!

8Medicube Red Clear Cica Body Scrub

Medicube Red Clear Cica Body Scrub

Contrary to what many skinfluencers may say, sensitive skin types can actually reap the benefits of a body scrub as well! This newcomer from Medicube uses micro saccharide, brown sugar, and dead sea salt at different granule sizes to target bumpy skin, in-grown hairs, and sensitive skin at once. If that doesn’t sound convincing, BHA and PHA add a chemical exfoliation element to gently slough away stubborn dead skin cells for smoother skin.

9Paula’s Choice Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment

Paula's Choice Skin-Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment

We commonly see BHA in effective body acne treatments, but who knew retinol could also be great for your body care? This silky-textured and lightweight body lotion delivers a powerful punch with 0.1% retinol for all your acne and anti-aging needs. At the same time, antioxidant-rich butters and plant oils ease any potential irritation and leave your skin feeling nourished, healthy, and hydrated.

  1. I tried so much for my back acne growing up and the only thing that stopped it was 10% Benzoyl Peroxide wash, it’s antimicrobial/antibacterial properties combat fungal acne and inflammatory acne, while also preventing it from spreading further. Leave on treatments are not ideal because of the way your clothes will trap the moisture from the products along with sweat on your skin, similar to the way a mask works to trap bacteria along your jaw often causing breakouts. I use Panoxyl, you can buy at target or any drug store for like $10 and comes in a cream wash!! If 10% BP is too strong, they also have 4% benzoyl peroxide!
