I exercise quite a bit and often suffer from acne on my back.

Wednesday, 12 September 2012

If your acne is being caused because of the sweat and training, then simply using the correct product regime with a basic oral supplement should sort it out fairly quickly. I would suggest you make use of Lamelle’s clarity range, just the cleanser and the product called ‘active control’ (just applied to the affected areas). I would also strongly suggest that you use the Acnevelle oral supplement as will help a great deal. If you have budget constraints, start by just using the Acnevelle supplement.

If, however, the problem is being caused by something else, such as a hormonal imbalance or any other internal condition, these products will only help you up to a point. It’s always a good idea to ascertain the CAUSE of your problem and work directly on that cause. If you are sure it’s being caused due to the training and exercise, then you’ll most likely get really great results just using the products I’ve suggested. It’s also a really great idea to do a monthly back deep cleansing treatment to speed up your results and get the problem cleared as well as possible.

    I let my boyfriend scrub my back once in a while.. that also helps for me. But maybe I should ask him if he wants to apply a mud mask on my back.
