Dealing with acne on your face can be difficult enough, but when it comes to body acne a whole new level of frustration can be achieved!
Often times body acne can result from sweat clogging our pores, such as during exercise.
And while we cannot typically control how sweaty we get, we can control how we take care of our skin!
