Are you dealing with butt acne? Read this!

-Hi! Thanks for reading me in advance. ✨- Buttne is a shorthand for butt acne. Which is a very common and uncomfortable skin condition so don’t feel bad about it. 😋 In addition of giving you a very bad bump in your butt it is also very painful and itchy as well. Butt acne is not usually the common acne, is a folliculitis. What is a folliculitis? Well, is a mild infection of the hair follicle that leads to pus pimples or red bumps. This non regular pimple are caused by a combination of your follicles getting blocked and a bacterial infection. Sometimes the causes are very gross, or they can be a “wait, really!?” 😳
If you keep your wet sweaty clothes after you hit the gym, then expect buttne.
If you spend long hours sitting down, then this friction and irritation will cause those follicles to get clogged.
If your case is wearing undies past their time, which is gross, but totally expect Buttne with this.
Do not wear tight-fitting clothes too much either! This traps sweat and oil against your skin, which... you know what can happen.
Let’s say you have these, well there is not problem with it. We got the solution! 😗 I suggest you to try these at home options to help your peach look better. 🙊
Try a salicylic acid body wash. This will help you to unclogged those pores by exfoliating your skin.
You can also try to target your butt with a benzoyl peroxide body wash. This is very effective to treat acne and folliculitis because of its antimicrobial ingredients.
You can also bright up acne marks with glycolic acid.
Try to moisturize your butt with a lactic acid lotion whenever you get the chance. Don’t feel scare, this won’t clog your pores.
If you shave, try to shave the right way. Don’t go against the grain of your hair.
If these solutions or any other don’t work. Then a consultation with a dermatologist will help you more. :)
I useful tip is to leave the acne medication sit on your skin for 8-10 minutes. This way it can penetrate the skin before washing it off. Maybe put the product before you step on the shower, shampoo your hair, condition your hair, maybe shave, sing some songs. And then wash it off :) Some good products for Buttne: I hope this little info helps you out! Let me know if you try them, and which one worked for you! :) There is not shame on having Buttne. I myself have experience this and is totally normal! Enjoy your day! 🥰

Exfoliation Pads
Peter Thomas Roth is one of my favorite clinical skincare lines, on the market. The Max Complexion Correction Pads are an easy way to practice regular (chemical) exfoliation. They contain both BHA & AHA exfoliants such as 2% Salicylic Acid & 10% Glycolic Acid. Each of these ingredients aid in clearing up acne & blackheads, while working to smooth out fine lines & wrinkles. These double-sided exfoliating pads are also beautifully complimented with calming Arginine. It is typically recommended to exfoliate 2-3 x a week. Although, I would suggest to use these pads only 1-2 x a week, due to the high potency of Glycolic Acid Complex & in place of any other topical acne products. They are to be applied after your cleanser, within your PM regimen & followed with a hydrating serum or moisturizer. It is also extremely important that you include a daily broad spectrum sunscreen when incorporating a chemical exfoliant into your skincare routine! I would not recommend these for sensitive skin!

Winter 2019 routine; part 1: PTR complexion pads
First picture: before using it. Taken January 2019. Second picture: November 2019, after 4 months, nightly in conjunction with SPF 50 during the day. I picked these up on a whim, and I really didn’t expect it to clear my skin up as completely as it did. I’m blessed with persistent adult acne and hyperpigmentation, but using these nightly has really made a difference! It’s working so well to keep the zits at bay, therefore reducing the likelihood of scars forming. In addition, I’ve been cutting my pads in half as they’re absolutely soaked in the solution! 60 pads can last you almost 4 months! Granted, it took me a little while to get my skin used to it, as it’s far too strong to just start every night as soon as you get it. I suggest using it every other day, and working your way up to nightly. The scent is wonderful and not too overbearing, and it exfoliates efficiently with both the textured treatment side and the gentler smooth side.

Suggestions on how to get rid of acne
I have oily skin but can get dry around my nose and chin during the colder seasons. I have little bumps on my cheeks that have been there for years. I think they are closed comedones, I don’t know how to get rid of them. I also have acne scarring, I use Kate Somerville - D-Scar Scar Diminishing Serum which I find has really help my scarring but I don’t use it too often because I like to use it when I have “clear” pimple free skin but that doesn’t happen too often. I’ve recently started using GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover it leaves my skin feeling refreshed and cleansed. I used to useNeutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser it worked well but my skin became used to the product after a while and started having no affect on my acne. It also washed me out. With the cleanser I used Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel again it worked well in the beginning but my skin became used to product and didn’t benefit me anymore. These products also did not work on the bumps on my cheeks and jaw. The moisturizer I use is #Aveeno - Daily moisturizer SPF 15[products]#[ThreeStars] I bought this in the summer and liked that it protected my skin from the sun and was moisturizing. Now I find it to be dry on my skin and I get flaky around my nose. My main focus is to get rid of those bumps. I would also like to hear suggestions on how to get rid of blackheads and textured skin. Thank you!

My full current routine
My skin is very acne prone skin and has been as long as I can remember, yet I’ve never been able to find anything that really works, you know? Thus, I’ve decided to put my current routine out there in the hopes that someone, anyone might be able to offer some advice or tips to help. Morning: wash with the 3.5%Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser(I’ve searched for a 10% formula but I guess it’s not carried in Canada) tone withpixi - Glow Tonicwith 5% glycolic. Sometimes I also use THAYERS - Lavender Facial Tonerbut not as often anymore mix 3 drops of lavido - Invigorating Facial Serumwith 3 drops of íUNIK - Tea Tree Relief Serumand a pump of vitamin C serum from a local brand called Truly Lifestyle Brand. I’m not sure it’s the best to mix my serums like that but hey. Also the vitamin C serum is a 17% concentration. moisturize with Cetaphil - DermaControl Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30. I actually do feel as if this has helped my acne but I could just be imagining it; I used to believe that my old moisturizer broke me out before I switched to this one. Sometimes I feel dry since it’s oil absorbing I guess but it’s not frequent. lastly isOLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème; I don’t suffer from dark under eyes but I still like this one. Evening: wash with same neutrogena face wash tone with pixi toner I used to use the proactiv md 3 step routine and although I don’t use the cleanser and rarely use the sunscreen-moisturizer, I recently started using the proactiv - Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatmentagain use the same serums minus the vit c serum moisturize with the CAUDALIE - Vineactiv 3 in 1 Vitamin C Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer. I’m not concerned about anti-aging, I was recommended this for helping with the skin barrier. Sometimes for nighttime I also mix this moisturizer with the LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping Maskor SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask spot treat overnight with CLINIQUE - Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel Weekly: one or twice a week, surprise surprise, I use The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution for my pores and to fade my dark spots. usually once a week, sometimes twice I use the AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Claywith acv a bit less frequently I use the alya skin. - Skin Pink Clay Mask, this one I feel is less effective than the Aztec clay mask but I still like it It might also be worth mentioning that I also have been taking 30mg of zinc which I heard helps with acne, and in the mornings I drink a mixture of acv, lemon juice, turmeric, and cayenne in hot water. I also used to juice celery but I don’t have a juicer right now so haven’t been doing that recently. I feel like that’s enough information but I love getting advice about skincare and talking about it so I’d be happy to give more info if anyone would like it😊😊

Eczema & Dry Skin Products 💧
If you’re like me, you deal with dryness, patchiness, itchiness all over your body. This isn’t new to me - I’ve had eczema since I was 7 and it has flared up in many different ways and on different parts of my body since then. One of my major triggers for my flare ups is stress 😣 Unfortunately, once I get a flare-up, it can take me months before I’m able to get my skin calm and back to “normal” again. Two products that I started using religiously to help with my issues are the SkinFix Resurface+ Glycolic Renewing Scrub & Babo Botanicals Fragrance Free Shampoo and Wash (there is an adult version but they share the exact same formula and the adult version is $5+ more than the baby product.) skinfix - Resurface+ Glycolic Renewing Scrub I really love this scrub for getting the dry skin off my body and helping to renew my skin cells. It issues bamboo crystals and AHAs to bulldoze through that rough skin and helps it to feel smooth af 😆 One of the only hiccups with this product, though, is those bamboo crystals. I feel they are a bit too sharp & rough and they have actually cut my skin in the past 🤭 if they switched to pumice or a finer crystal, this scrub would be absolutely perfect! But for now, it’s the best body scrub/exfoliation I have used to date. babo BOTANICALS - Sensitive Baby Fragrance Free Shampoo & Wash For Sensitive & Eczema-Prone Skin, EWG Verified I really do love this body wash, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it for people with super sensitive skin. It is completely fragrance free and not harsh like other body washes can be (also can be used as a intimate wash for people with vulvas.) However, my one hiccup with this, is that I feel like I have to use A LOT of product to use on my entire body. But overall, is a great formula for those dealing with sensitivities, eczema, rosacea, sunburns, acne etc... A bit more on the pricey side ($20) but worth it IMO. What other products have you all used to combat body eczema and dryness? I would love other recommendations to try out! Let me know in the comments below 🖤🙌🏽

Say goodbye to bumpy skin!!
I’ve been using this duo for the past 2 weeks and the skin on the back of my legs & butt has never been more smooth! These are perfect for anyone who suffers from keratosis pilaris. The scrub is used 2-3x a week on dry skin and then washed off in the shower. Helps exfoliate the skin with a fine physical exfoliant but also includes glycolic and lactic acid to help brighten/smooth and help increase cell turnover. The particles are so fine this never causes any irritation on my skin. The only reason I am not giving the scrub 5 stars is because for the amount I use on my body the price seems kind of steep at 40$ CAD. This body cream is a DREAM. If you had to choose just one of these products I’d go with this. It has a rich creamy texture and has a natural AHA blend to help smooth out any bumpy textures but also gives amazing hydration. I noticed results after using this cream for only a few days! Will 100% repurchase this product. I sometimes will get a bit of acne on my butt/ behind my legs and this has helped clear it up!

Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser This is a product I use ever day which keeps my acne at bay. I feel like it is the only cleanser I have found that actually prevents acne from showing up. Super good for the summer, it sucks all the oils off your face leaving it nice and dry, waiting for a moisturizer Smells nice, actually like grapefruit Cheap enough that it is practical to use twice a day everyday Does not take forever to see results, usually only 1-2 weeks The only true con is that it does not keep your nose clean of black or whiteheads, and some acne is resistant to it Neutrogena - Body Clear, Body Wash This is a good body wash for acne prone zones, for me it’s upper arms and chest This got rid of my active acne on my shoulders and chest Does not dry out skin as much as face wash Somewhat hard time lather/spread because of its gel consistency Does not smell as nice as the face wash

no more body acne!!
no more body acne!!
For a few years ive had these weird sometimes red, sometimes normal color, bumps on my legs and sometimes on my arms. I never knew what they were, until I went to a dermatologist and got diagnosed with folliculitis. Its pretty much just hard-to-get-rid-of-ingrown hairs that are infected. Ive had them for YEARS and never found a way to get rid of them, until my derm recommended this wash!! I use this wash on my upper arms, booty, thighs and inner thighs. If ur a chubby thigh girl like me you probably get red bumps/ingrown hairs on your inner thighs. This is AMAZING FOR THAT!!! It really keeps those bumps away. Although, I only use this on my body not my face. This wash has Benzyl peroxide and my face really doesn’t like that. It gets dried out super easily and just irritated, but my body can handle it. Towards the end of my shower, I wet my skin, and then apply this wash and lather it up, but i dont add anymore water. I let the wash sit for a minute or two, then I wash it off. I started seeing results in just 2 weeks, just make sure to moisturize moisturize moisturize!! Do I recommend this? Yes!! PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength

Thoughts: I had never tried out any Simple products and this would be my first and definitely not my last. I didn't know nothing really about the brand but when I was gifted this along with other goods I did what anyone else would do, read the back. I noticed this spoke about how the pouch is flexible and is made from 62% less plastic, which is cool. I loved seeing that they care about the earth and want to not be wasteful. I also did research online about them and enjoyed how there was no nastiness in their products. I was also drawn in by the adorable packaging and goodness inside, ofcourse. I decided I would try it out immediately since I was suffering from a hormonal breakout, itchyness and irritation. I lathered this onto my face and saw my skin didn't react or get worse it actually felt soothed. I was already enjoying it and even more when it foamed up. I rinsed it off and my skin looked a lot better, clean, nourished and red pimples seemed to have smoothed out some and not be so red surprisingly. I used this cleanser for a good 2 weeks already, my skin is getting tamed and I'm happy. I know this will be my go to cleanser/tamer to my skin when my menstrual comes around each month. Overall, I’m impressed with this. Claims: A facial wash that is for all skin types and is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, has no fragrance, alcohols or bad ingredients and will leave the skin feeling thoroughly cleansed and nourished. Targets: Impurities, improving skin barrier and dryness Texture: A lightweight white gel like consistency that feels a tad sticky but gets foamy once it's rubbed in Some ingredients: Vitamin B5 to restore and smooth skin Vitamin E to fight off free radicals that contribute to the signs of aging Bisabolol is anti inflammatory to help soothe and calm the skin. Price: $1.99 at Ulta Recommendation: Yes I recommend this face wash because it's great when you're traveling, It's gentle, quick to use, won't irritate and is affordable.

Although I have sensitive skin this product is perfect! This product is perfect because it isn’t harsh on my sensitive skin and quickly helped bumps and blemishes go away on my skin. This product here did have a fresh and clean scent I’m pretty sure it isn’t fragrance free because like I mentioned it did have a slight scent to it. •This product significantly helps unclog pores and gently exfoliates your skin. Overall I definitely recommend this product! It significantly helps clear up your skin. Like I mentioned it gently exfoliates and helps with your acne. 🌟

I have acne prone combination skin (more towards the oily side) My dermatologist recommended PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength to me over a year ago and I have been using it every night since. The only nights I don’t use it is the night I do my chemical peel or if I use a clay mask. This cleanser makes my face feel so clean, keeps my pores small and keeps my acne at bay. It does make me a little dry but I balance it out with my morning cleanser and good moisturizers. I don’t have very sensitive skin but 10% benzoyl peroxide can be very harsh for some people. I definitely recommend starting with the more gentle 4% panoxyl first to see how your skin handles it. My morning cleanser is the Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser . This cleanser does exactly what the name states- it’s hydrating without stripping or clogging pores. I love that it doesn’t foam and has no scent. It really makes up for the moisture that I lose with the panoxyl. My skin has stayed clean, shiny and clear ever since I incorporated these two products into my routine ❤️

Can’t say enough good things about this product. Panoxyl is a fragrance free benzoyl peroxide 10% acne wash. This is marketed as a acne face & body wash which I love to use it as. Mostly I use it on my face as a 5 minute mask when I feel congested. I also leave it on my back and chest for 5 minutes while I shave in the shower to take care of those pesky spots. Nows here’s something not everyone knows but I love to use it under my arms on my armpits as a mask as well! Not only does this exfoliate to leave you with a closer shave under there but it also helps with the bacteria that grows and helps it stink less. It would be really good for people to use if they’re switching to natural deodorant to help make the transition easier! The only complaint is this product is drying but what do y expect from an acne treatment.
