Breakouts on the face, chest, and back are a common issue for many people. There are many factors that can cause these breakouts. Oily skin, clogged pores, diet, and environment are just a few. There is hope; I know this from personal experience.
Since moving to the south, I deal with occasional bumps on my chest during the hotter months of the year. I have oily skin and my sebum production is affected by the humid weather. Here’s what has worked for me to conquer chest acne.
- Keep your skin clean. I wash with one of Sénica’s soap bars.
- Try facial steams and heat compresses to keep your pores clear. Oil and dirt can clog the pores which can lead to breakouts.
- Go easy on the oils. I tend to skip the oil/moisturizer particularly in the evening to give my skin a chance to balance itself.
- Use a moisturizing mist to hydrate the skin. I like rose water because of its cleansing properties. Orange blossom water is another food grade option if you don’t like the smell of roses.
- Allow breakouts to heal on their own. Don’t pick the scabs off.
- Try the Blemish Balm. It helps with the skin healing process and in reducing hyper pigmentation.
While I still have occasional bumps these tips have helped me improve the appearance of my skin and minimize scarring. I hope they work for you. What tips would you add to the list? Leave your comment below.
