The Problem: Breakouts
Solution: Intensify your anti-acne routine.
• Benzoyl peroxide, sulfur and salicylic acid all work to kill acne bacteria, reduce oil, calm inflammation and clear pores. Even though they wash off, cleansers with those ingredients can make a huge difference.
• Physical exfoliants—scrubs,
a brush like the Clarisonic—clear pores and bring down the bacterial content, says New York/Miami dermatologist Fredric Brandt.
• In-office Isolaz lasers treat acne bacteria and can keep your skin flawless for weeks.
• Always shower right after exercising—sweat can up bacteria levels—and apply antibacterial lotions or sprays wherever you’re prone to body acne.
