Which Home Remedies For Acne Of The Body Are The Best?

By: Amanda Martinez

What is body acne?
The easiest explanation is the most obvious. Body acne is acne that forms on your body. I personally have dealt with body acne, and I have to tell you I don't enjoy it at all.
The acne nodes on your body are often bigger, deeper, and take longer to go away than the ones on your face, and to top it off, they hurt more too.
In this article I will show you three popular home remedies for acne on your body, and will tell you my honest opinion about whether they will work.
Home remedy #1
Toothpaste. This is the silliest of all the home remedies that I will be talking about today, but some people swear that toothpaste really works to get rid of body acne.
To use toothpaste to combat body acne, all you need to do is apply the white paste kind directly to the zit. It won't hurt you, and it may make your skin smell minty, but in my experience it won't help heal the acne either. I'd personally just pass on this one.
Home remedy #2
Witch Hazel. This one is a little better. Witch Hazel is a natural astringent and can be found in any drug store or pharmacy for just a few dollars a bottle.
To apply witch hazel, just use a cotton ball and apply it directly to the pimple. Witch hazel is very soothing, and will reduce the redness of the acne. I recommend this home remedy for mild acne.
Home remedy #3
A body wash that contains Salicylic Acid can work wonders to cure body acne. In fact using a product that contains Salicylic Acid is one of the best things you can do to at home to treat body acne.
It's even better if you have a body wash that contains both Salicylic Acid and Citric Acid, as these two ingredients work together to clear acne fast.
This body acne home remedy is a little pricier than others at about $20 a month, but it gives you some of the best weapons to get rid of body acne and keep it from coming back.
