Bacne can be very annoying. In addition to making you feel self-conscious while wearing bathing suits or backless tops, they're harder to treat because the skin there is thicker and more resilient. Thankfully, there are certain products that can make bacne disappear ASAP: chemical exfoliators! These "gently dissolve the bonds holding dead skin to the surface" and remove dirt and oil to reveal "fresh, healthy-looking, bump-free skin beneath."
Excited to try one? Here are some options that will suit whatever budget you have!
Pixi Glow Tonic
This famous toner can be used in a myriad of ways, but our favorite is using it as a bacne treatment. It has five-percent glycolic acid content plus aloe and ginseng extracts to soothe and fight angry, red blemishes.
