Skin care often focuses on the face, and this leaves those dealing with body acne and other skin issues left wondering what to do. Fortunately, there is plenty to do when dealing with skin issues no matter where the skin is located. OROGOLD is going to take the time to discuss your options when combating these issues though so that you have a clear guide the next time you have something to deal with and need some ideas. As ever, these ideas are by no means the full range of possibilities for treating blemishes and any particularly troublesome or troubling blemish should lead to you consulting your dermatologist for the best approach. These will certainly work for more mundane issues though.
Choose the right body wash
The right body wash can make all the difference regardless of the kind of blemish you’re trying to deal with. A body wash that includes salicylic acid in an appropriate amount is a good option for your skin. This is particular true when you’re dealing with body acne, but other blemishes will benefit as well. The salicylic acid is most likely familiar to you from facial cleansers and the principle remains the same. Salicylic acid penetrates into pores and helps clear out oil and other grime to leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed. It will likely leave a light tingling sensation though due to the nature of the acid. As an added benefit, the acid carries an exfoliating property that helps reduce the appearance of discolorations and other kinds of skin blemishes over time as well. As a result, simply selecting a good body wash can do your skin wonders.
Another good option for exfoliating is to find a good body scrub. You’ll need to decide how coarse of a scrub to use, and this varies depending on how sensitive your skin is overall. A scrub provides a much more obvious feeling of exfoliated skin than the body washes mentioned previously, and provide a similar benefit. Clearing away the dead skin helps reduce the overall visibility of scars and other blemishes over time. Additionally, a good scrub leaves your skin feeling clean and smooth like few other products. A coarse body scrub is a good choice now and again, but if you opt to use a scrub regularly then you should try for a finer scrub. A coarse scrub used too frequently can and likely will damage your skin. The finer grained scrubs are easier on the skin though and entirely suitable for regular use.
As ever, remember to moisturize your skin. This is especially true if you’re using a body wash with salicylic acid as it will dry your skin out to a degree. A good moisturizing lotion after any shower or bath is a good option though. OROGOLD would like to highlight that keeping your skin properly moisturized is a vital component of any skin care routine regardless of your body wash though. Properly hydrated skin is capable of handling damage better than poorly hydrated skin, and exhibits more youthful properties on whole. Scarring benefits particularly from proper hydration as it encourages the skin to smooth out. You can bolster this effect by using a vitamin C based hydrating lotion as that will help boost collagen production in the skin and can, in time, reduce the appearance of scars.
Overall, dealing with body blemishes isn’t too different from dealing with blemishes to facial skin. You do have slightly more leeway in how rough of a product you can use though simply because body skin is generally more tolerant of such things than facial skin. OROGOLD suggests you always pay attention to how your skin reacts to any new products though. Listening to your skin as you experiment is the best way to find the right products for you.
