    So I was thinking about trying ProActiv... not for the face, but for my back :o Lately I have been breaking out like CRAZY, and I have no idea why :hs: My dad had bacne, so maybe it's genetic? :dunno:

    So has anyone used ProActiv for bacne problems before? :o

    Not sure if this will help, but mine stopped dead in its tracks as soon as I started wearing a shirt in the apartment while sitting on my leather desk chair :hs:

    what helped me is washing your sleep clothes and changing your sheets regularly


    Oxy has a body wash, but i've never used it

    get a good loofa and scrub your back

    Do you sleep without a shirt on?

    When was the last time you changed your bed sheets?


    And from what my friends have told me, ProActiv is a life saver, but I don't know what it is like on other parts of the body besides a face.


    Q:What do I do for bacne (acne on the back)?A:Acne anywhere on the body, whether it be face, neck, back, or chest, responds well to benzoyl peroxide. The only problem is that benzoyl peroxide tends to bleach dyed fabric. A body regimen which uses benzoyl peroxide requires the user to wear a lot of white. Because the back and chest are such large areas, you may want a larger tube of benzoyl peroxide. Check out DanielKern.com for information about the less expensive 4oz. economy sized benzoyl peroxide gel.

    you become dependent on the stuff
    just wash your face 2 times a day with a soft soap such as dove
    dont use the acne crap because it will give you acne
    use a toner
    an moisturizer if you have dry skin, people with oily skin shouldnt use moisturizers

    EDIT: for the back you might have a chemical balance problems
    go to doctor and see

    Change shirts often when you sweat.. etc. I can get it pretty badly also.

    studies have shown that the 2.5% is every bit as effective as the 10% without the skin dryness :hs:
