4 Ways to Get Rid of Chest Acne
1. Treat it like you would your face.
Our faces tend to get our anti-acne love, but don’t ignore your chest’s needs. Use a cleanser that contains salicylic acid on your chest (use it in the shower). The salicylic acid treats current chest acne breakouts, while also unclogging pores that may eventually lead to acne (like ingrown hairs).
2. Use a topical treatment.
Once you wash your chest, be sure to use a topical treatment designed for acne. You can use benzoyl peroxide or a retinoid to see significant results (you can pick up Differin, which used to be available by prescription only, or a retinol product).
We recommend putting a topical treatment on your chest before bedtime. Be sure to wear a t-shirt that you don’t mind getting stained, especially if you opt for a benzoyl peroxide solution which will bleach any fabric it touches.
