Best body lotion for acne: 16 Best Body Lotions for Every Skin Type 2021


16 Best Body Lotions for Every Skin Type 2021

Body lotion benefits your legs, knees, arms, butt, and torso in much the same way that a daily moisturizer benefits the skin on your face. According to dermatologist Heidi Waldorf, an associate professor at the Icahn School of Medicine, “It keeps skin smooth and supple, and maintains a healthy skin barrier.” Much like the serums, creams, and moisturizers you use on your face, body lotions come in a wide variety of formulations meant to target specific issues like dryness, loss of elasticity, acne, eczema, and keratosis pilaris. With that in mind, we asked eight dermatologists for their body-lotion recommendations for a variety of skin types. In each case, Waldorf notes, it’s ideal to apply body lotion when wet — i.e., when you’re hanging out in your towel post-shower — to better seal in the moisture.

To combat even the most extreme cases of dry skin, like eczema, experts tell us you should seek out formulations rich in ceramides and hyaluronic acid.
Melanie Palm — the medical director at Art of Skin MD — explains that ceramides (or, cholesterol-derived fat) help seal the skin barrier to keep in moisture, while hyaluronic acid is known to carry 1,000 times its weight in water, so your skin stays extra hydrated. Six out of our eight experts pointed us to this CeraVe lotion, which contains both. It’s fragrance-free so it’s well-suited for sensitive skin types, and it doesn’t feel sticky or heavy on skin. As cosmetic dermatologist Michele Green sums it up: “CeraVe is the best overall body lotion. It is safe for all skin types and packed with hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and humectants to keep the most sensitive skin hydrated.”

Boca Raton dermatologist Jeffrey Fromowitz says this Eucerin dry-skin lotion is another highly effective choice. It’s not only moisturizing (with added ceramides), but also gently exfoliates with some alpha hydroxy acids. Green also recommended Eucerin as a high-quality drug-store lotion with excellent ingredients. The difference between Eucerin and CeraVe is mainly that CeraVe has moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid while Eucerin uses urea to lock in moisture. And as for the price difference, it’s pretty slight (about $5), but enough to add up to sizable savings if you’re using it consistently over time.

Dermatologist Debra Jaliman, an assistant professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai’s Icahn School of Medicine, pointed us to this Aveeno tub that relies on colloidal oatmeal for curbing eczema-related itchiness, but it’ll also work for people who are itchy from regular old dry skin. Aveeno reviewers say this soothing balm is a godsend, with one noting that it got her off “steroid-based sprays and creams,” and another praising the fact that: “This doesn’t leave a slime trail in my husband’s wake. Plus he’s not waking me up multiple times during the night scratching his feet and hands. This balm kept me from a divorce.” And if in, say, the summer months, you don’t need something quite as heavy-duty, then try the cream version instead, which came recommended to us by three different dermatologists for eczema.

Sometimes intensely dry skin can cause inflammation, which, for obvious reasons, can be very uncomfortable. To soothe any irritation, three dermatologists recommend this EltaMD cream. “It has dimethicone, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid, but it also has squalane oil and mango-seed butter as well as niacinamide — all of which focus on inflammation,” explains Dr. Melissa K. Levin, the founder of Entière Dermatology. While it’s a bit pricey, she says it’s completely worth it.

And because you want your body lotion to be hydrating but not exacerbate any body acne, two experts — Jaliman and Waldorf — recommend CeraVe’s SA lotion because it contains salicylic acid, an exfoliant that’s been clinically proven to help with acne. It’s also fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, and noncomedogenic, which means that it won’t irritate the skin and is specifically formulated not to clog pores. Some reviewers say they’ve seen noticeable improvements and smoother skin in just a few days.

For conditions like keratosis pilaris — which consist of “plugs” of cells in hair follicles, often on the upper arms and thighs — exfoliation is key. Fromowitz says you should look for creams that include exfoliants like lactic, salicylic, or glycolic acid, and prescription-grade products for more severe cases. This AmLactin lotion that Waldorf suggests contains lactic acid (which you might recognize if you’re a Sunday Riley fan). Incidentally, the Eucerin on this list also contains lactic as well as glycolic acid, so you could start there and try this if you want something stronger.

Heather Downes, dermatologist and founder of Lake Forest Dermatology in Illinois, also recommends a lotion for keratosis pilaris. Her pick, DerMend Alpha + Beta Hydroxy Moisturizer, has glycolic and salicylic acids, which help exfoliate and unclog pores. Downes tells her patients to apply it daily to arms and legs and says that “one week later your skin will feel silky smooth. ” The prices of the DerMend and AmLactin version are basically the same, and the only noticeable difference in the formulations is that DerMend has niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 that helps reduce pore size and retain moisture, which might be helpful in soothing sensitive skin.

Many people have year-round sensitivities to certain ingredients. But in the winter months blasting radiators and hot showers can sap the moisture out of anybody’s skin, making it more sensitive and extra thirsty. Both Green and Engelman recommend this Cetaphil lotion for irritated and sensitive skin, which can manifest as redness, breakouts, and hives. Green likes that this cream from Cetaphil contains ceramides and essential fatty acids, which she says “create a barrier that protects skin from environmental stressors, while replenishing lost moisture. ” Engelman likes that it’s a gentle, fragrance-free, and noncomedogenic moisturizer from a brand with a great reputation. As the seasons change you might want to swap your lightweight body lotion for this richer, more nourishing formula.

Also for sensitive skin, Vanicream came recommended by Downes, Engelman, and Morgan Rabach, dermatologist and co-founder of LM Medical. Downes told us that she recommends Vanicream because it’s hypoallergenic for those with sensitivities to fragrances and preservatives. “It’s also inexpensive,” says Downes, who stocks it in her office because she recommends it to patients so often. Rabach calls it “truly an amazing product,” saying that “it’s extremely thick and moisturizing, and one of the best creams for people with very sensitive skin or eczema because its formulation is free of dyes, lanolin, fragrance, parabens, and formaldehyde.

If your skin tends to be oily even in the dead of winter or you abhor the slimy feeling that sometimes comes with applying body lotion, Jaliman recommends looking for products that contain aloe and cucumber because “they are moisturizing and great for irritated skin without being too heavy.” This one by Suave, which Jaliman says is “light in texture and nongreasy,” contains both.

Though it’s pricey (at least $100 more than the other products on this list), Engelman swears by this body lotion from West Coast beauty brand Augustinus Bader (we included it in our list of things to buy before they sell out back in July). Like the Augustinus Bader face creams, which have a significant cult following of aestheticians and celebs, this newly released cream also uses stem-cell technology, amino acids, and high-grade vitamins to jump-start the skin’s natural renewal and repair process. In addition it contains Shea butter to deliver intense moisture and protect your skin’s natural barrier, while vitamins A and E combined with anti-inflammatory Brazilian candeia oil help firm skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks and fine lines.

Because this fast-absorbing body lotion contains retinol it can increase sun sensitivity, so you’ll want to let it do its nourishing and firming while you sleep rather than during the day. When it comes to night creams, our experts tell us to look to retinols and gentle chemical exfoliants that will help increase cell turnover and reverse any environmental damage caused during the day, for renewed, softer-looking skin. Replenix is a routine favorite of dermatologists, and came recommended by Jaliman for the retinol and hyaluronic acid in it that will reduce the appearance of fine lines and plump up skin.

If you love the luxurious experience of applying a body oil, but find them to never quite stack up to more creamy textures in the hydration they deliver, here is the perfect compromise.“This lotion is great because it has argan oil in it,” says Jaliman of this lightweight oil-based lotion. According to her, argan oil is the Goldilocks of carrier oils: not too heavy and not too light. So it’s suitable for all skin types. This lotion is rich in omega fatty acids, vitamin E, and linoleic acids, ingredients that Jaliman tells us “work to lightly moisturize your skin, soften dry patches, and help with rosacea.

As with perfumes and colognes, when it comes to fragrant lotions everyone has their own taste, but some options tend to have more universal appeal than others, particularly when their aroma is neither too feminine or masculine. Which is why Engelman’s pick is this scented body lotion from Ellis Brooklyn. Her favorite scent is Verb, which she describes as “a gorgeous unisex citrus/sandalwood scent.” Scent aside, this body milk is made using moisturizing natural ingredients, including cocoa butter, shea butter, jojoba oil, macadamia-nut oil, camellia oil, and aloe-leaf-juice extract (an ingredient with healing and anti-aging properties). It’s also made without a list of over 50 potentially harmful ingredients, including sulfates, parabens, and phthalates — and as unwelcome ingredients can sometimes go hand in hand with scented products, that’s another reason this one is a standout.

13 Best Body Acne Treatments 2021, According to Dermatologists

While acne is typically considered a face-centric frustration, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn’t experienced a pimple or two — or dozens — somewhere south of the neck. Fortunately, the best body acne treatments are only a few clicks or taps away. Clothing may make body breakouts easier to conceal, but they’re no less frustrating than a chin or cheek zit, especially since anywhere we have pores and hair follicles on our bodies can be susceptible to sebum-clogged bumps, which means we can experience breakouts on our butts, chests, backs, and arms.

For example, “back acne [comes from] the inconvenient and unfortunate cycle of clogged pores, inflammation, and poor skin turnover,” says Texas-based, board-certified dermatologist Heidi Prather, who explains that back acne can appear as small blackheads, inflammatory pustules, or sometimes deep, tender cystic lesions.

As annoying as body acne is, it’s luckily both preventable and treatable. Prather encourages her patients to try to identify anything that might be triggering outbreaks. “Hair products such as conditioners or leave-in products that contain silicones and oils can leave a residue on your skin, resulting in clogged pores and acne,” Prather tells Allure. “Screen your products for ingredients that are known to be comedogenic, and when getting a massage, opt for lighter lotions in place of heavy creams and massage oils that can exacerbate acne.”

If the steps you’ve taken thus far to prevent body breakouts haven’t left you with clear skin, there are plenty of over-the-counter products that dermatologists love to help heal outbreaks, and you’ll find their favorites below. Some are the same products that do wonders to the face, but not every product made for the face is the right pick for the body.

“Keep in mind that, although our back skin seems tough, it [usually] cannot handle the same acne treatment routines we use on our face. It is important to avoid being overly aggressive with acne treatments on the back to prevent irritation,” Prather says. But ultimately, if one of the products below isn’t making the difference you’re hoping to achieve, make an appointment with a board-certified dermatologist, who can evaluate your skin and create a personalized treatment plan. 

Ahead, find 13 expert-approved products to treat your most stubborn, below-the-neck blemishes.

Gluten-Free Moisturizers, Creams, and Lotions

There are countless options for moisturizer products on the market to keep the skin on your face and body well-hydrated. But only a small fraction of them are considered gluten-free. The nine brands listed here make gluten-free moisturizers.

What to Look For

Gluten can’t be absorbed through the skin. And products containing gluten ingredients have not been shown to have detectable amounts of gluten in tests. The best way to determine whether gluten-containing ingredients were used to make a product is to read the label, which will carry a “gluten-free” designation if the product has been tested and found to be gluten-free.

There’s a chance you could ingest traces of gluten from a gluten-containing lotion if you use it on skin near your mouth, or accidentally touch your mouth after moisturizing your hands with a gluten-containing lotion.

All skin products labeled “gluten-free” avoid certain ingredients such as wheat germ oil and hydrolyzed wheat protein which are derived from gluten grains. Your options include gluten-free face moisturizers (for use around your lips, where you’re at risk of ingesting some) and gluten-free moisturizers with SPF protection (important when you’re exercising outdoors).

As with other products, such as makeup and lip balm, many of the larger cosmetics companies are less likely to offer gluten-free moisturizers. In general, smaller companies as well as natural and organic brands will more commonly cater to the gluten-free community.

Gluten-Free Moisturizers and Skin Creams

Here’s a comprehensive list of manufacturers that offer gluten-free moisturizers, lotions and face cream products.

Dakota Free “Baby Your Skin” Baby Balm

Made by In the Potter’s Hand, a family-owned farm business, Dakota Free “Baby Your Skin” Baby Balm is all-natural and fragrance-free.

It’s vegetarian but not vegan (it contains beeswax), and contains a small amount of soy.

According to the company’s website: “Dakota Free Products…offer allergen tracking and full disclosure of all ingredients used in the manufacturing process. You may use these products confidently knowing that they were developed to help families stay healthy and offer comfort to people with allergies, autism, celiac disease, chemical sensitivities or skin problems.”

Moisturizer Brands That May Contain Gluten

The following brands of moisturizers and skin creams are widely distributed but are not recommended for those who are sensitive to trace amounts of gluten, either because the company doesn’t test for gluten or because the company makes products that contain gluten.

Alba Botanica

This Earth-friendly, animal-friendly company makes skin and face products with ingredients such as green tea, aloe, and jasmine. However, it doesn’t guarantee that its products are gluten-free.

According to the company’s website: “Our plant-based ingredients come from a variety of sources which we don’t currently screen for traces of gluten. If a product is not specifically labeled gluten-free, it hasn’t been tested and cannot be guaranteed as such.”


This popular Johnson & Johnson brand advertises “active natural ingredients.” Unfortunately for those who are gluten-free, some Aveeno products contain wheat. Aveeno products may contain gluten.

Aveeno also uses oats in its product formulations, which are gluten-free. Aveeno states that its oats are processed on dedicated equipment to lessen the risk of cross contamination with other gluten grains.

According to the company’s website: “Although we do everything in our power to ensure the oats remain gluten-free, we cannot say with absolute certainty that cross-contamination did not occur during the manufacturing process. We recommend that consumers speak with their physician if they have specific sensitivity concerns.”

If you like Aveeno products and don’t mind oat ingredients, you can try Aveeno’s Daily Moisturizing Lotion or Daily Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 15—both products contain oat kernel flour but not wheat. For a facial moisturizer, Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 contains soybean seed extract but no wheat or oat ingredients.


AmLactin, a division of the pharmaceutical company Sandoz, makes a variety of skin care products that are recommended by dermatologists and distributed widely. While the moisturizers do not appear to contain obvious gluten grain-based ingredients, the products may contain gluten. AmLactin does not have a list of gluten-free products.

Burt’s Bees

Burt’s Bees, which is owned by The Clorox Company, makes numerous face and body moisturizing products. Though many contain no gluten ingredients, Burt’s Bees does not provide a gluten-free or allergy list and is unable to state that its products are gluten-free. Some products may contain gluten ingredients.

Some Burt’s Bees products are known to contain allergens while others may have been manufactured on a shared line with products containing gluten or produced in a facility that also processes products containing gluten ingredients, according to its website. Therefore, you should steer clear of Burt’s Bees products if you’re particularly sensitive to trace gluten.


CeraVe, part of the L’Oréal Group, is widely-available and makes about two dozen face and body moisturizers as well as many other skin care products. Developed by dermatologists, the brand includes many products aimed at people with specific chronic health and skin conditions such as diabetes and psoriasis.

According to a customer service representative for the company, CeraVe products may contain trace amounts of gluten. But most ingredients derived from gluten grain sources are highly refined and retain no traces of gluten proteins. The company has also set strict limits on the level of potentially allergenic gluten proteins in its products.

Since many people who have celiac disease or non-celiac sensitivity may experience a reaction to trace amounts of gluten, CeraVe recommends discussing the ingredients on the product label with your medical care provider. If you are particularly sensitive to trace amounts of gluten, talk to your doctor before using CeraVe skin care products or consider another option from this list.

Dove DermaSeries

Dove, a well-established personal care brand, makes lotions and face moisturizers under its DermaSeries line for sensitive skin and chronic skin conditions. Dove does not test its products for the presence of gluten, which means that gluten grains like wheat, oat, rye, and barley may be present in some of the brand’s personal care products.

However, according to a customer service representative, Dove follows the guidelines set forth by the International Nomenclature for Cosmetics Ingredients (INCI). Therefore, if a product uses any ingredients derived from gluten grains those will be disclosed on the label. Dove recommends that you consult with your physician about the products before using them.


Jāsön, a subsidiary of Hain Celestial, used to offer a line of certified gluten-free products, including skin moisturizers. However, those certified gluten-free products have been discontinued. A customer service representative says that Jāsön does not test for gluten or screen for other allergens and therefore do not carry a gluten-free label.


A subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, Neutrogena makes a huge variety of facial moisturizers and skin creams, along with various other skin care products. However, the company does not have a list of gluten-free products, nor is information about gluten ingredients available on its website. Therefore these products may contain gluten.

St. Ives

St. Ives, which makes a wide range of skin care products, is a subsidiary of Unilever. The company does not test for gluten but does have a policy of calling out ingredients according to the International Nomenclature for Cosmetic Ingredients guidelines.

Therefore, watch out for gluten ingredients like wheat (triticum), barley (hordeum), and rye (secale) on labels. There could be gluten cross-contamination even in products that don’t include those ingredients.


From cleansers to moisturizers, Olay offers dozens of products. However, the company (which is owned by Procter & Gamble) does not provide a gluten-free list.

According to a customer service representative: “If we add gluten, wheat, or wheat extract directly to a product, it will be listed in the ingredients on the label. Still, we cannot give a 100% guarantee that trace levels of gluten are not present. Many ingredients used in our products are purchased as a raw material, and we don’t have information on the make-up of these raw materials or if they have been in contact with other materials before they arrive at the plant.”


Plenty of people swear by Vaseline Intensive Care and Vaseline Clinical Care skin lotion products. Vaseline offers solutions for very dry skin, cracked heels, dark spot rescue, and eczema.

Like St. Ives and Dove, Vaseline is a Unilever company and will call out gluten-containing ingredients on its labels under their scientific names (triticum, hordeum, and secale). Be aware there could be gluten cross-contamination in Vaseline’s products, even if no specific gluten ingredients are present.

A Word From Verywell

Choosing a moisturizer (including a gluten-free moisturizer) is really a matter of preference. Some people prefer light lotions that seem to soak into the skin right away, while others enjoy the feel of thicker creams on their skin.

Generally speaking, moisturizers tend to contain more water than creams, which are thicker, whereas serums, gels, and ointments are oil-based. Ultimately it depends on your skin type and what works best for you in terms of protection and hydration. If you don’t feel as if your moisturizer is getting the job done, you may want to try a different product.

Regardless, pay attention to how your body responds anytime you try a new product. If your skin reacts to a new moisturizer with irritation, you should discontinue using it immediately and try something else.

How to Get Rid of Bacne

We can all agree that body acne is the actual worst. Out of all the areas of the body, back acne (or bacne, as we often call it) can be the most enraging because you don’t always know you have it. It’s not like you’re looking at your back in the mirror every day. And if you don’t know the zits are there, you don’t treat them. Plus, even if you know you have it, it can be hard to treat if you can’t twist your body into a pretzel. The first step to treating bacne, and preventing it in the first place, is understanding what’s causing it.

What Causes Back Acne

Just like acne on your face, body acne happens because pores get clogged. Sebaceous glands monitor oil production in your skin, exist on all areas of the body, and can get blocked no matter where they are. Usually these blockages are caused by dead skin cells that accumulate inside the pore. “Oil glands continue to produce oil, but when it backs up, your body sees this as foreign material and creates inflammation,” says board-certified dermatologist Robert Finney, MD. Clogged pores and inflammation can lead to both superficial and deep cystic acne.

The main difference between acne on your face and on your body, though, is that inflammation can also occur around hair follicles. It’s called folliculitis, and can happen anywhere there is hair (like your back, chest, or butt). It may look the same as acne on the surface, but what’s happening below could have more to do with bacteria than dead skin cells. “When we’re talking about folliculitis as opposed to acne, we start to think about bacteria that can get in there,” says Finney. That bacteria caught inside can lead to inflammation which leads to zits.

Another bacne culprit could be something called acne mechanica, which is caused by friction. It’s particularly common on the back because of things like backpacks, chairs, and gym equipment, which rub against our backs and force sweat and debris down into pores. “Acne mechanica can be hastened by running, sweating, tight-fitting clothing, and nonabsorbent materials,” says Finney. All of these things can hinder our body’s natural exfoliation process and make dead skin cells stick around in our pores longer, which, you guessed it, leads to irritation and zits.

How to Treat Back Acne

You don’t need a medical degree to tackle bacne, because the treatment for regular acne, folliculitis, and acne mechanica are pretty much the same. The same ingredients that help acne on your face, like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, can help on body acne, too. Keeping the area clean and exfoliated is a given as well.

As with most things, “prevention is far more effective than treatment,” Finney says. Always make sure to shower as quickly as possible after working out and change into dry clothes to prevent sweat from sticking around on your skin (bonus points for wearing moisture-wicking clothes during your workout). Keep using skincare products, like body washes and exfoliators, even after your bacne has cleared up to keep it from coming back. Acne-focused skincare can work wonders on mild to moderate cases of bacne, but if you have severe outbreaks or notice that it’s not going away despite treatment, see a dermatologist. There might be underlying issues like hormones or diet at play. But for now, start with these 17 best back acne treatments to help get rid of annoying bacne and prevent it in the future.

Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash with Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment

Just like using a special face wash, the first step of defense is using a body wash containing salicylic acid, which helps to “loosen the connection between dead skin cells,” says Finney. The beta hydroxy acid goes deep into your pores and helps clear blockages from inside. For added benefit, Finney recommends using one that also has a physical exfoliant like microbeads. 

Humane Maximum-Strength Acne Wash

If you’re not sure if your breakouts are folliculitis or acne mechanica, Finney recommends using a wash with benzoyl peroxide. “Benzoyl peroxide’s primary goal is as an oxidizing agent, which kills bacteria,” he says. It also has an exfoliant property, to help break up clogs, but is a more potent anti-inflammatory agent than salicylic acid.

Hero Mighty Patch Large

Hydrocolloid acne patches work by sucking the gunk out from inside your pores and protecting it from further bacterial infection. They’re best used when you already see a pimple to help get rid of them faster. Most patches are small, and would be annoying to try to stick over large patches on your back. Not these— they’re large enough to cover multiple zits at once and are tailor-made for body acne.

PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide

For stubborn acne, this wash (which can be used on your face and your body) has a high dose of benzoyl peroxide, that ingredient that gets deep into pores and kills bacteria. Keep this in your gym bag and use it right after a workout, before bacteria has time to hang out.

CLn BodyWash

Dermatologists often recommend diluted bleach baths to help kill bacteria on the skin, which can cause not only acne, but also other issues like eczema and dermatitis. This body wash contains sodium hypochlorite, a component of bleach, so it accomplishes the same thing without sitting in a tub of water. It’s gentle enough to use every day to keep bacteria in check.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Exfoliating Body Treatment Peel

If you’re not into body scrubs, these single-use towels accomplish the same thing without the mess. Each pad is packed with glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids to help exfoliate on the surface of your skin and inside the pores to keep away blockages that could lead to acne. They’re also big enough to go over your entire body with one towel, or use it to target only the areas where you’re breaking out.

Alder New York Cleansing Body Bar

Unlike other bar soaps that use physical beads or granules for exfoliation, this smooth bar contains glycolic acid to gently remove dead skin cells and buildup on the surface of your skin. It’s good if you have sensitive skin or don’t love the scraping feeling of other exfoliating bars.

Differin Daily Deep Cleanser – Sensitive Skin Formula

The downfall of benzoyl peroxide is that it can be irritating to some people, but “if you can tolerate it, start there,” says Finney. “Especially if your pimples are red or coming to a head, there is more inflammation there and benzoyl peroxide is more potent.” Start slow and use it a couple of times a week to see how your skin reacts. If you can tolerate it, increase the frequency.

Skinfix Resurface+ Glycolic Renewing Scrub

Alpha hydroxy acids, like the glycolic and lactic acids in this cleanser, help to remove dead skin that accumulates on the surface of your skin. They don’t go deep into pores like salicylic, but once your acne clears up, they can be a powerful tool in maintaining clear and smooth skin all over your body. Use a scrub like this a few times a week.

Vive Loofah Sponge Back Scrubber

The biggest problem with treating back acne by yourself is actually reaching it. Finney recommends using a washcloth to get those hard-to-reach areas and using a thicker cleanser that will stay on the cloth. You can also use a long-handled loofah, but not every day. They can increase irritation, particularly if you are using it with benzoyl peroxide. Don’t use a brush more than once a week, he says.

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion



Like on your face, spot treatments can be effective at targeting specific and larger pimples when they pop up. “I like sulfur because it does have some antimicrobial properties, but is also going to gently exfoliate,” says Finney. The antimicrobial aspect of sulfur is especially good for body acne which is prone to infection. 

Cortizone 10 Maximum Strength

Cortisone creams can be too harsh to use on your face, but are better for the thicker skin on your body. “It can help calm down inflammation quicker,” says Finney, provided that you don’t overdo it. Use it as a spot treatment only on the angriest zits and only when you need a quick fix. It won’t help prevent acne in the long run and can be drying if used too much.

CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion

Ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, while powerful acne fighters, can be drying to your skin. Moisturize your skin often to cut down on irritation and keep skin hydrated and healthy. “Look for words like oil-free and non-comedogenic on your lotion,” says Finney. “It’s not going to clog pores and lead to worse breakouts.”

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

It’s possible to have dry and acne-prone skin at the same time, particularly if you’re using harsher ingredients. “Some people get more irritation,” says Finney, “so instead of a lotion, they should use a cream just because it’s a little bit thicker.” That thickness means it has more moisturizing ingredients.

Belei Blemish Control Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Wipes

Since sweat is one of the main causes of clogged pores on your back, it’s important to shower as soon as possible after you work out. If you can’t shower at the gym or get sweaty just from walking to work, use a wipe containing salicylic acid to clean off until you can get to a shower. These wipes say they’re for your face, but they work on your body, too. 

Bevel Exfoliating Bar Soap

Using an exfoliating soap even when you’re not having a bacne flare-up can be a huge help in keeping them from coming back at all. A scrub soap like this uses microbeads to manually exfoliate away dead skin cells and debris that can build up over time. It’s a good option for the days between your benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid cleanser. 

Paula’s Choice CLEAR Back and Body Acne Spray

Dexterity issues be damned, a spray containing salicylic acid can help you treat hard-to-reach areas like your mid-back or between your shoulder blades. This version is a leave-on treatment, which means you spray it on after your shower and let it go to work without washing it off.

The 28 Best Face Moisturizers For All Skin Types in 2021

In the skincare Olympics, last year’s options for the best face moisturizer for your skin type might not make 2021’s list. Why? Formulas change (even the most coveted) as brands constantly update recipes and star “actives” to make them cleaner, better, faster, stronger. “New products are continually released onto the skincare market, some of which contain more potent combinations of ingredients, and sometimes even entirely novel actives,” says Jessica Weiser, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Columbia University. She adds that rotating tried-and-true favorites intermittently helps “to ensure that your skin continues to respond to its source of hydration.” Changing seasons often cue a swap. In a heatwave, lightweight gel (basically the halter top of summer hydration) might tap in for an ultra-rich cream.

Of course, consumer demand is a powerful thing. Now that Big Beauty is finally catching on to customers asking for nontoxic ingredients and do-it-all recipes, there’s a new wave of natural multitaskers. “With endless innovative moisturizers, the hydration market is more abundant than ever, and there are products suitable to all skin types and needs,” says Dr. Weiser. To help narrow the search and edit the noise, we tapped experts for their recommendations on 28 of the best face moisturizers.

Best Drugstore Moisturizer

Even if Amazon is the drugstore of today, these can be found at the closest corner counter—for under $20. Dr. Weiser likes La Roche Posay’s Toleriane for a basic moisturizer as it’s “soothing and calming to even the most sensitive. ” Makeup artist Daniel Martin (who works with classical pianist Chloe Flower one day and TikTok’s Charli D’Amelio the next) agrees that it’s “great for sensitive skin,” and prebiotics are a barrier bonus. To restore protective barrier function, “look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and ceramides in a non-comedogenic formula,” says facial plastic surgeon Yael Halaas, MD. She likes CeraVe for its broad-spectrum SPF that “won’t clog pores or cause acne flare-ups.”

CeraVe Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer

Best Lightweight Moisturizer

Lightweight and clean, Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Pink Juice oil-free moisturizer is a bestseller that caters to multiple skin types, incorporates hyaluronic acid (which holds a thousand times its weight in water), and sits in adorable packaging. Martin says Tatcha’s Water Cream is “hands down my go-to for the summer or anywhere you’re dealing with humidity and heat. ” As global director of artistry and education for the brand, he’s tested it everywhere. He says to apply before makeup—even long-wear.

Best SPF Makeup Moisturizer

BareMinerals Complexion Rescue has swept its category for a reason—its clean mineral SPF recipe protects from blue light with just the right buildable texture for beginners. When Vogue staffers would ask for something to polish up before an event, I’d hand them a tube in their skin tone. The next time, they’d bring a friend—a certain accessories editor once raved, “it looks like you’ve had your makeup professionally done.” For those who like chemical broad-spectrum sunscreen, La Prairie’s offers a dose of their signature Caviar Water within one of the most beautifully textured skin-perfecting foundations on the market.

La Prarie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation SPF 25

Best Age Support Moisturizer

This is the kind of category typically labeled as “Anti-Aging,” though in 2021, that terminology is already dated. What was once the industry standard now sounds like “Anti-The-Natural-Course-of-Life-Itself.” Younger generations are anti-anti-aging and pushing for industry language to change (Allure announced it would stop using it in 2017). Brands are updating packaging with more realistic terms along the lines of “Pro-Aging.” MUTHA notes that their nontoxic Cream Extreme is pregnancy-safe (a rare find in this category), while Augustinus Bader’s “clean science” is a new insider favorite. Martin keeps iS Clinical Reparative Moisture Emulsion in his kit, which “brightens up tone while protecting skin and diminishing wrinkles over time.”

Best Moisturizer for Dry Skin

Dry skin that was once treated mainly with petroleum products (a byproduct of crude oil) can benefit from modern, plant-based alternatives. Topicals offers a completely clean (and often sold-out) option full of soothing colloidal oatmeal and skin-replenishing ceramides, and its aluminum tube is easier to recycle than plastic. Martin likes Good Light’s Moon Glow featuring snow mushroom, another ingredient that holds a thousand times its weight in water. It layers well. “I’m truly obsessed with their milky lotion,” he says of his new hot-weather basic. “It’s an awesome pre-moisturizing lotion for dry skin that needs more hydration without added weight.”

Topicals Like Butter Mask for Dry, Sensitive & Eczema-Prone Skin

Good Light Moon Glow Milky Toning Lotion

Best Moisturizer for Extremely Dry Skin

Extremely dry skin calls for a buttery balm-like Nopalera’s botanical bar, part of the waterless skincare eco-revolution. Inside of a reusable (like, way cute) recyclable aluminum tin, it looks solid at room temperature—then melts into skin. Otherwise, consider a thicker cream. Glowbar founder Rachel Liverman (a third-gen esthetician) likes Avene Cold Cream for a “rich and creamy moisturizer that provides intense hydration, leaving even the driest skin feeling smooth and supple.

Eau Thermale Avène Cold Cream Intense Moisturizer

Nopalera Moisturizing Botanical Bar

Best Moisturizer for Acne Prone Skin

For inflamed and acne-prone skin, balance is key—so is hydration. “Acne is often a reason patients avoid using proper moisturizers, but in fact moisturizing acne-prone skin can help suppress oil production and speed healing of the skin,” says Dr. Weiser. She likes this “dewy” Biossance gel that “leaves skin radiant without causing occlusion that can lead to skin congestion and blemishes.” It features squalane, “a plant-derived, excellent emollient to keep skin hydrated.” Soothing niacinamide blends with moisture-trapping humectants in Bubble Level Up balancing moisturizer—plus, its touch-pump dispenses single servings to keep bacteria out of the mix.

Biossance Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer

Best Moisturizer for Dull Skin

Dr. Weiser shares that a mild exfoliant can help encourage skin turnover to “eliminate dead skin cells that contribute to dullness,” which translates into a “glow. ” She recommends Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc La Lotion for its brightening effect and ability to “continually even tone to yield bright, radiant skin while eliminating dryness.” ReVive Moisturizing Renewal cream can be applied as a final step at night (while skin does some of its best work).

Sisley Phyto-Blanc Brightening Hydrating Lotion

RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream

Best Anytime-Anywhere Moisturizer

For any time, anywhere moisture, creams that let skin breathe and skip the kind of SPF that needs to be washed off at the end of the day are at the front of the line. Industry-beloved brand Lord Jones soothes with CBD, while Grown Alchemist smartly wraps their rosehip oil Hydra-Repair cream in a recyclable tube (sealed with Amazon’s Choice approval). Dr. Weiser and Dr. Halaas both like Afore Moisture Complete by Dr. Few, which boasts aloe, squalane, and antioxidants that protect from free radical damage.

Best Hand Cream

Hands do as much work as (or more than) our expressions. “Our hands take a punishing even more than our faces,” says Dr. Halaas. “As a surgeon, I wash mine innumerable times and use drying, irritating antimicrobial hand sanitizer.” Many can relate. She suggests finding a moisturizer you like and committing to “frequent application—nighttime gloves can be a help.” Clarins makes a kit for both hands and feet that could be worth the investment. Mario Badescu’s costs less than $10 for a non-slip finish.

Mario Badescu Hand Cream with Vitamin E

Best Body Moisturizer

“Body skin doesn’t have the reparative ability that facial skin has, so it needs more support from protective creams,” says Dr. Halaas. Flamingo’s offers squalane on a drugstore budget, and it’s hard to describe the heavenly-yet-sharp botanical scent of Agent Nateur’s holi(body) serum. Martin chills out with CBD-powered PRIMA R+R Cream for “any aches and pains—its eucalyptus, lavender herbal blend of botanicals is actually refreshing and cooling on the skin for the summer.

Best Acne Spot Treatments for the Back and Body UK | London Evening Standard


f you have found that the lockdown period has wreaked havoc on your skin – you are not alone. Breakouts are at an all-time high caused by a whole host of reasons, from stress to lack of sunlight and of course, the consequence of our excessive junk food consumption.

We may be well versed in how to handle facial acne with all the carefully curated lotions and potions to effectively eliminate the average blemish, but what do we do when it comes to our bodies?

The acne that no one wants to talk about seems to always come at the worst time – before a holiday or a big event – and can have a major impact on your confidence.

The back and chest are often the most affected areas and can be some of the most stubborn, long-lasting and challenging to tackle. It is known as folliculitis and occurs in a similar way as it would on your face. As there are pores all over your body, they too can become clogged with excess oil, bacteria and dirt that leads to spots.

What causes back acne?

Lucy Xu, Lead Skin Specialist at London Premier Laser & Skin Clinics reveals that “When oil and dead skin cells become trapped within the follicle, or pore as there more commonly known, it can create a blockage, this blockage in turn forms into a blackhead and can progress to an irritated pimple if bacteria surfaces and it gets infected”.

There are many causes; diet – particularly fatty foods and dairy, stress that causes the glands that produce sebum to go into overdrive, hormones, or medication. It may even come as a result of heavy moisturisers, sunscreen or post-workout where sweaty and tight clothing create an optimum environment for breakouts.

How can I get rid of body acne?

“Wear natural fibres that are breathable (cotton being the preferred choice) and avoid itchy, tight ones” recommends Xu.

“Be sure to change your sheets and pillow cases regularly as these can collect oil, dead skin cells, bacteria and residue from hair, skin and body products. Opt for a moisturiser that’s oil free, like Cetaphil moisturising lotion as this won’t aggravate your bacne”.

Washing your hair more regularly or showering (or use wipes) straight after the gym may be simple fixes but for that pesky bacne, ch-acne or n-acne that just won’t seem to go away, you should look out for products containing salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid or tea tree oil.

Salicylic acid is a BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) that acts as a chemical exfoliant to unclog pores deeper than the surface. Benzoyl peroxide dries out the skin and kills bacteria – but may bleach clothing or sheets.

Glycolic acid gently targets the surface layer of your skin to remove dead skin and increase cell turn over. Tea tree oil works as an antiseptic. Scrubs and buffers can be too abrasive and may actually aggravate the spots and make them more inflamed and long-lasting.

Dr Catherine Borysiewicz, Consultant Dermatologist at the Cadogan Clinic advises that “Everyone’s skin will respond in a slightly different way to each of these approaches and getting the right product for you can make a big difference.”

Around your chest and neck, the skin is very delicate and thin and so you need a gentle cleanser that is fragrance-free and does not contain oils or emollients like cocoa or shea butter.

For clearer and smoother skin from head to toe, we’ve gathered the best at home treatments and products to banish body blemishes.

Acne and acne remedies

Problem skin, acne

Poor skin condition, pimples are not only a problem of adolescence. Often, a completely mature person can also observe various problems. The search begins immediately for a remedy for acne on the face that will help to cope with everything at once. But there is no one-size-fits-all drug. The solution to this problem must be approached in an integrated manner. The online store “Avocado” will help you with this, where cosmetics for the care of problem skin are presented in a huge assortment.

Why problems arise

Various skin rashes arise from both external and internal causes.The epidermis is able to withstand most external influences, if they are not excessive in nature, and are simply corrected with the help of a remedy for problem skin. It is much harder and longer to deal with internal causes.

The main factors are called by experts as follows:

  • hormonal disruption;
  • heredity;
  • 90,057 disturbances in the work of the gastrointestinal tract;

  • decreased local immunity;
  • allergy.

In people under the age of 20, hormonal factors are associated with adolescence, when the period of formation of the hormonal system passes. Also, hormonal causes include rashes in women during the premenstrual period. In adulthood, increased testosterone levels can be the cause of poor skin.

In addition to general immunity, the epidermis has its own immune cells, the failure of which under the influence of ultraviolet radiation, improperly selected cosmetics, nutritional disorders and bad habits can lead to rashes and other problems.

The hereditary factor can also cause various skin pathologies. For example, disorders of the sebaceous glands, the pathological composition of sebum in one of the parents may manifest itself in a child.

Diseases of the stomach and intestines are very often manifested by skin problems. The thing is that the skin is not only a protective shell, but also an excretory organ. When food stagnates in the gastrointestinal tract, it rots, and toxins are formed, which are also excreted through the skin, as a result, food poisoning occurs, and foci of inflammation are formed.

Regular fast food also leads to disruptions in the digestive system, and also stimulates the production of sebum, which can trigger acne.

Allergic reactions of the body in most cases are manifested by rashes, inflammation, itching of the skin. Anything can cause such a condition: from any food product, to a weather phenomenon, and even facial cosmetics for acne. Therefore, manufacturers produce hypoallergenic products, and experts recommend testing the products in a small area before using them fully.

Some cosmetologists determine the problem in the body according to the localization of the rash:

  • on the chin – a sign of hormonal disruptions and diseases in the reproductive system of women;
  • on the bridge of the nose – appear with liver dysfunction and an excessive amount of toxins that this organ can no longer cope with;
  • on the cheeks – problems with the lungs, especially as a result of smoking;
  • on the forehead – abuse of spicy and fatty foods, disruption of the gastrointestinal tract.

Our company presents a large selection of products for all types of skin and the fight against a variety of pathological conditions.

How to take care of problem skin

The most correct decision in the event of serious pathologies is to contact a specialist who can find out the cause of this condition. Eliminating factors is a major step towards recovery. Then, you will be individually prescribed the drugs, the chosen treatment methods, and the care measures.

Mild rashes and inflammations are usually simply treated with acne and pimples on the face. They should be antibacterial, gentle, and regular washing.

The hormonal nature of the rash requires only a visit to a doctor who can prescribe medications to correct the amount of hormones secreted.

If allergy is the cause, then it is urgent to stop the action of the allergen. The use of antihistamines, sorbents, steroid and non-steroidal ointments is shown, depending on the method of penetration and the type of allergen.

Various cosmetic procedures can also be prescribed:

  • dermis cleaning;
  • cryotherapy;
  • ozone therapy.

One of the essential items in the successful fight against rashes is diet therapy.

What do dermatologists recommend to ensure proper care of a problem face:

  • Give up regular soap and give preference to foams, gels for washing;
  • be sure to use a tonic;
  • Apply masks of chamomile, lavender, calendula, celandine, white clay;
  • observe personal hygiene;
  • to protect the dermis from ultraviolet radiation, including the use of creams with a sun filter;
  • use scrub peels;
  • Hair, especially oily, collect in a ponytail.

Cosmetologists strongly advise against dealing with pimples and manual face cleansing at home on their own. Extrusion involves the correct preparation and implementation of a number of preliminary procedures, which are very difficult to carry out without a specialist. You can get an infection, injure your skin, and then you can develop a serious infection and leave deep scars.

Also, if you have rashes, inflammations, then it is better to refuse preparations containing high concentrations of alcohol.

When choosing cosmetic products, you need to carefully read the purpose. If you see “For all skin types”, then this does not apply to the affected skin. Here we mean three types of healthy skin (dry, oily, combination). For skin with pathological changes, these funds are not suitable. You need to select bottles with a special purpose, where a specific type of action is indicated.

In a cosmetic bag, you must definitely have a cleanser, spot applicator, make-up remover, tonic lotion.

If you are in doubt with the choice, you can contact our specialists for help. You will be given free consultations and will take your order over the phone if you cannot make a purchase online.
