There are few things that can affect self-esteem or body image like body acne.
For many years, I simply refused to wear a tank top or a strappy dress. Going to the beach was an exercise in strategic dressing and lounging. What’s worse is that my closest friend in the world during that time was one of those girls with perfect, poreless, relentlessly clear skin. Meanwhile, I spent my teens and twenties covered up, hidden from the world.
Sound familiar at all?
I want those of you with body acne to realize that it’s a totally treatable condition. With the right body acne treatment products (and consistent use), beautiful, clear skin is not only possible, it can be a reality. I’ve been using Mario Badescu’s AHA Botanical Body Soap and have been getting great results. I can say with confidence that I won’t be hiding out this summer under t-shirts and beach coverups.
This body wash uses fruit extracts—papaya and grapefruit—to exfoliate dead skin cells. One of the main causes of acne is the inability of the dead cells of the epidermis to shed properly. These skin cells build up a sticky layer that traps infected material in the follicles and ultimately leads to acne.
As always, we take a huge interest in hearing about your experiences with our products. Let’s see what some of you had to say about this body wash:
New York City’s Katie C. says: “My friend discovered this bodywash about a year ago and it has changed both our lives! I use it on my back and chest every other day in the shower, and it has cleared my breakouts completely. I never have to worry about having red bumps on my back or chest again! It’s gentle and smells amazing too.”
“I absolutely love this body wash,” writes Deborah D. in California. “It cleans without drying. It removes all the yucky residue from your skin and really clears up body acne!! I am thrilled with the results.”
