PSA: About 60% of people living with acne experience it all over - on their chest, back, shoulders, or even on their butt. Remember this stat when you are feeling self conscious and like you are the only one dealing with body acne! In terms of treating it… one thing you might be missing in your skincare arsenal = an acne body treatment spray. Convenient, easy to use, and most importantly, effective, a medicated spray has the potential to keep your body breakout-free and provide a much-needed solution for anyone struggling with body acne. Below are all the reasons we recommend it:
1. You want to take action outside of the shower.
You may be using a body wash in the shower, but it does help to take further action to get rid of those severe breakouts. On top of using a body wash formulated to specifically treat acne like SLMD's BP Body Wash, we recommend you try SLMD's Salicylic Acid Body Spray to keep fighting your acne well after you've gotten rinsed and dried!
2. You tend to break out when you workout.
Nothing feels better than getting your sweat on, but if you’re not careful, your hour of cardio can be counterproductive on acne-prone skin. Most people who notice breakouts after a sweat sesh usually find them on their chest, shoulders, back, and butt… or anywhere that sweat-soaked clothing (like a sports bra or those super cute but super tight leggings) might press against your skin (become occlusive). If you aren’t able to change and shower ASAP, SLMD's Salicylic Acid Body Spray can quickly and efficiently clear away any buildup before it has the change to clog pores and develop into acne.
3. You’ve got little bumps on your skin that refuse to disappear.
Got stubborn blackheads and whiteheads you want gone ASAP? The building blocks of acne ie. open comedones (blackheads) and closed comedones (whiteheads) - can both be treated and prevented with body spray made with our favorite beta-hydroxy acid, Salicylic Acid, which is able to crystallize and dive deep into pores to give them a deep clean.
5. You want to treat and prevent maskne.
IYKYN... If you don't, Dr. Sandra Lee's latest maskne hack is spritzing the inside of your protective mask with Salicylic Acid Body Spray and fanning it out to air dry. Breakouts from wearing face masks (maskne) is not something we are accustomed to, but this hack will help you roll with the punches, staying safe and acne-free!
5. You want a daytime and nighttime solution.
If you’re exhausted by AM and PM rituals (necessary but annoying, we understand) take solace in the fact that body spray can be used any time, day or night, to fight your breakouts. Whether it’s before work, post-workout, or as a part of your nighttime routine, using salicylic is totally safe, whatever time of day it is.
6. You’re almost always on the go.
Work. Gym. Socially distanced happy hour. Listen, we get it. When you live out of your car (or your purse) and don’t have time to run home for a shower between activities (or when wipes won’t quite reach those awkward areas like the middle of the back) a spray-on solution you can keep with you can be a lifesaver. SLMD's Salicylic Acid Body Spray can be used on the go and cover all those hard to reach places no matter where you are.
All of SLMD's body acne essentials can be found in the Got Your Bacne set. Hope we cleared things up!
