Get ready to show some serious skin this summer with our two favorite body acne solutions.

Body acne. Bacne. Blemishes. Pimples. Zits. Whatever you call it, it sucks. And, although many people have it, no one seems to talk about it. Discussing facial acne is embarrassing for sure, but body acne? Forget about it. We all seem to pass through life pretending it isn’t an issue all while hiding under shawls, sweaters, and jackets. Which is all fine and good until…the summer.

As the hot sun starts to bake us all, covering up with layers is no longer an option. As if wearing a bathing suit in public isn’t stressful enough, throw in being self conscious about your “bacne”, and it might be enough to make you skip the beach all together. And heading out to a fun, new bar seems a lot less exciting when you’re constantly worried that people will notice your blemishes. Does body acne really have to hold you back from missing out on all of the summertime fun?

Recently I set out with one mission: to find body acne solutions that everyone can use. Whether you’re partial to the skilled hands of an esthetician or prefer to treating issues in the comfort of your own home, there is a body acne solution for you, and I was going to find it. It’s time to stop neglecting your favorite strapless dress, because this summer you’re finally going to show some seriously clear skin.

At Home

Many who suffer bacne prefer to treat it in the privacy of their own bathrooms. Which is totally fine if it is done correctly, but most people need to step up their game if they want to get the results they’re hoping for. Stop scrubbing with regular soap and water and wondering why you see no results. It’s time for a more effective product.

Recently I discovered a new treatment from Paula’s Choice called the Clear Acne Body Spray with 2% Salicylic Acid. Although it’s always concerning to put ointments and sprays on your body that could stain your clothes or bedding, this product has no bleaching properties and it dries super fast. Just spritz it on twice a day, rub it in, and you’re good to go!

So, what were the results? To test it out, we sent Beth home with a bottle to try. I am happy to report that within two days she saw noticeably better results. Just two days! If that doesn’t sell you, I don’t know what will. Available at

In the Spa

Sometimes all you want is to lie down and have someone else pamper you while fixing all of your problems. Well, that’s what the spa is for! This week I took a nice two hour mini-vacation and headed to Graceful Spa, you know, for research purposes. Combined with a luxurious hour long massage, their back facials get clients ready for a season of skin-baring strapless fashions, so I had to see what all of the hype was all about.

The procedure was extremely relaxing from start to finish, and featured multiple blemish-fighting steps, including extractions and a back mask. I was almost falling asleep as my skin soaked up the healing concoction and my limbs were happily kneaded and massaged. If this two hour session doesn’t unwind you, I don’t know what will.

So, was the outcome as wonderful as 120 minutes of bliss on that massage table? Well, it has only been three days since my treatment, and I have already noticed better and better results each day. I definitely give it my seal of approval.

Want to get in on this awesome body acne solution yourself? Right now Graceful Spa is offering a 60 minute back facial plus a 60 minute deep tissue massage for just $120, which you can book here. Get ready to be pampered!
