    Here's How To Actually Get Rid Of Acne All Over Your Body

    Because sometimes your body hasn't realized it's NOT going through puberty anymore.

    Anyone who's dealt with acne knows how much it can suck.

    1. First, understand what acne is and what causes it.

    2. Be wary of DIY acne cures and home remedies.

    3. Stop exfoliating so much.

    4. Don’t press a phone to your face during long calls.

    5. If you suffer from body acne, you'll probably want to shower every night.

    6. And you should use a body wash with acne medicine anywhere you're breaking out.

    7. If you get ingrown hairs around your groin, apply hydrocortisone cream to the area after you shave.

    8. Make a habit of putting your hair up or back before you work out.

    This will reduce the amount of oil and sweat that gets trapped on your forehead or on the back of your neck while you're exercising, all of which can be welcoming to pimples. Nazarian recommends a headband not on your forehead but pushed back on your hair — so that it won't trap sweat on your face.

    9. Wear lighter and looser cotton clothing or breathable clothes that wick away sweat.

    10. ALWAYS leave time to shower or at least wipe down and change clothes after exercising.

    11. Make sure you're changing and cleaning your bedding regularly.

    12. Wash your hoodies, scarves, and coats often.

    13. Only use a heavy-duty cleanser once a day.

    14. Make sure you're doing your nightly routine in the right order.

    15. Even if you find it sexy, be careful around scruff.

    16. Shave at the end of your shower and stick to unscented shaving creams.

    17. Use a two-blade razor and shave in as few swipes as possible.

    18. Do not go bananas trying to squeeze the hell out of your blackheads.

    19. And leave your whiteheads alone.

    20. Stick to oil-free or non-comedogenic makeup products only.

    21. Oh, and actually take some time to unwind, relax, and minimize stress.

    22. Know when to throw in the towel and see a professional about your acne.

    Bring it on acne! We're ready!
