Neutrogena Body Clear Body wash.  My friend swears by it.

I second Neutrogena.. also, check your hair care products. If your hair is long, your gel or hairspray may be getting into your pores. Try wearing a bathrobe after putting stuff in your hair- and if your skin is really sensitive, you may want to clip your hair up in the shower while your conditioner is doing its thing. That may be harming you too.

Also, try using body wash after you rinse out the conditioner. That makes sure that you wash all the conditioner residue off your skin before you step out of the shower.

I love Neutrogena too!  I use the Pink Grapefruit scent that just came out.  Also, I switched to a shampoo without sulfates because that was making me break out around the sides of my face.  Also, I like using the Clinique Acne Solutions spray.  It is salylic acid so you don’t have to worry about it turning your clothes white.

EDIT: Here is a link to the spray: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P188305&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=1254

I echo Neutrogena Body Clear either the wash or the scrub.

WOW! I’ve not heard of that Clinque Spray!  I break out on my chest sometimes and it drives me nuts – I will have to try that!

Yup, you can just spray it on any part of your body that has acne.  I would let it dry a little before you put on your clothes so that it doesn’t rub off.

You might try applying some diluted Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. You can also make a drink that can help as well by putting 1T of the ACV into a glass of water. Add lemo juice and sweetener (honey or stevia) and drink 1x/day. Be sure to rinse your mouth as the ACV is acidic and you don’t want it to sit on your teeth. This can help with digestion & weight loss for some ppl, too.

@okbride10- I always put gel in my hair (Im naturally curly) and when it rests on my skin my pores get clogged .. I do have really sensitive skin though. So, if its just your hair resting on your back you may be ok- I would just make sure all the conditioner is rinsed bc that bothers me too.

If the Neutrogena wash isn’t strong enough for you, try PanOxyl soap. When I’m good about using it on my chest and back, it works incredibly well!

It’s benzoyl peroxide-based, though, so I use it in the shower and rinse it off completely to avoid discoloring my clothes. (But watch out if you use colored bath towels or a colored bath mat!)
