Acne breakouts can come at the worst possible times, like the night before a hot date, a job interview or a trip with your friends. Thankfully, ever since we discovered COSRX acne patches, we haven't had to worry about it as much. They've been a true lifesaver when we needed a quick solution, which is why our lids flipped when we found out that the cult-favorite skincare brand was giving their original ones an upgrade.
Leave it to the August heat and long days spent in our lightest layers to remind us that summer only exacerbates body acne. But while flare-ups on the most common areas, like the chest and back, aren’t exactly welcome, they’re more manageable than ever thanks to all kinds of targeted treatments, from exfoliating body washes to skin-soothing lotions. To help guide you through the rest of summer and beyond, dermatologists help break down what body acne is, how to treat it and the best kinds of products to have in rotation for smoother, clearer skin all over.
