Question from Sandra Phoma

I suffer from 'body acne'. I have suffering in silence, however I am going for a beach holiday soon and I don't want to be the only all covered up. Please help me.


I am so sorry to hear that you have been battling with this. What very few people know, is that acne on the body is very often caused by a combination of an imbalance in the gut (gut dysbiosis), and hormonal influences. It is not simply a “skin problem”, rather it is an internal problem that manifests on the skin. So simply sorting out the flora in the gut and balancing the hormones and using just some basic topicals to clear up the skin lesions that are already there, tends to clear up the problem. So we treat the cause, we stop the acne. I would love to help you with this, but in order for us to get you on to the right treatment, we would have to take a look at you and examine the cause a bit further to see how bad your particular condition is and to ascertain what steps to take to sort this out for you as quickly as possible. Can you locate your nearest Skin Renewal branch? You can find us on, and then we can help you directly. Hope to hear from you soon!
