Acne Body Wash - The 3 Best Acne Body Washes (Updated!)
Finding the best acne body wash is easy and will help you clear your skin. Body acne, bacne, or whatever you want to call it is embarrassing. It can ruin trips to the beach, intimate moments, and backyard BBQ's. Trying to use the typical acne treatment for your entire body would be an incredibly expensive way to treat it, luckily many skin care companies came to the rescue and began making body washes for this purpose.
There are roughly 50 different acne body wash products currently on the market, so to help you choose I've narrowed those 50 down to the three best. This decision is based on total number of sales, user reviews, and my own experience. Below each brand is a link to Amazon so that you can buy them in bulk and save a ton of cash, if you want. I know that you don't get the instant results of going down to the store and buying it, it's your money and you can do with it what you want.
One very important thing is to use at least an entire bottle of body wash for acne before deciding whether or not it's the right product for you. The medication in the soap takes time to really work, and if you are jumping from product to product you'll never really get the results that you want.
*Update* I added two new acne body washes towards the bottom of this Hub. One is fairly new, and the other is extremely effective! Be sure to check them out!
Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash
Neutrogena is well known for making skin care products that don't make sensitive skin worse. This body wash contains salicylic acid to clear acne, but the moisturizers in it prevent the skin from drying out. Due to some smart chemistry, the formula of this body wash is designed to rinse completely off without leaving behind residue, which will clog up your pores. If you have sensitive skin, the extra few bucks per bottle will be very worth it for this body wash.
This Neutrogena body wash is ideal for people with sensitive skin.
Or if you're looking for a spray that's extremely effective, this is the way to go.
Perfect if you don't want to commit to buying three bottles of this body wash. They also have packs of two.
Murad Acne Body Wash
For the longest time I didn't believe the hype that Murad has around their products, until my cousin had fantastic results with this body wash!
Murad acne body wash definitely isn't cheap, but it is very effective. I never wanted to try it out because of the price, but my cousin was suffering from really bad acne on her shoulders and after using a little more than half of this bottle, it was all cleared up. Impressive!
Murad also has diet supplements (vitamins) that are supposed to help in clearing up your skin as well. Again, these are pretty expensive, but people are getting really good results from them.
I never thought that I would add a Murad product into this Hub, but after seeing the results that she got, I decided that it was a must add! If you don't have a problem with the price, this will get you great results!
A super effective acne body wash!
Phisoderm Anti-Blemish Body Wash
This acne body wash from Phisoderm is highly recommended by dermatologists to help you get your skin under control. It works great for blemishes and blotches all over your body. Ingredients like aloe vera and chamomile naturally heal your skin and give this body wash a great fragrance. The 2% salicylic acid content helps keep pimples and blackheads at bay. The best part is that most users see positive results in less than a week.
Oxy Body Wash
This body wash is geared more for guys with its different scents (think Axe). This is my favorite body wash. I have a bottle in my shower on hand for when breakouts hit. Like the others, it contains 2% salicylic acid to directly target acne. It uses Oxy's proprietary formula that they have been using for treating acne for years. The price of this one is a few bucks less than the others (I wish that was the price when I bought it...) and there is no sacrifice in quality.
My favorite acne body wash at an awesome price.
Neutrogena Acne Stress Body Wash
This product is the reason that I decided to update this Hub. The Acne Stress Body Wash is a fairly new product on the market, and people are getting really good results from it.
All of Neutrogena's body and face washes are generally great at not drying out your skin while taking care of the acne, and this is the same.
What I really like about this acne body wash is that you can get it with a face scrub and a moisturizer, so it acts like Acne Free or Proactiv, but it treats acne all over your body and face. Using one product to treat all of the acne that you have will reduce the risk of over medicating your skin and drying it out.
My (new) favorite acne body wash!
The Best Acne Body Wash
The best acne body wash is the one that clears up your skin. The only way that you'll figure out which one is to try out the recommendations here and see how they work. Everyone's skin is different, so what works great for me, may not work so well for you.
It's time to face your body acne head on, and there is no better way to treat it than with acne body wash!
Another way to help out your acne is simply to cleanse your body. Drinking a ton of water and eating a vegetable based diet is a great way to get started with this. The acne body wash will work to clean from the outside, and a healthy lifestyle will work on the problem from the inside!
