Because pimples don't just pop up on your face, y'know.
As if pimples on our chin, cheeks, nose and jawline didn’t suck enough, many of us have to contend with aggravating acne on our boobs, back and bum too.
But body acne doesn’t just happen to us mere mortals. Nuh-uh, A-listers like Kendall Jenner have suffered from it too and she’s shed some light on the issue in her latest video on her app.
In the vid Kendall’s dermatologist Christie Kidd explains why spots pop up on our body and in particular on our backs.
“Most of us,” she says, “we wash our hair, we condition it, and when our conditioner is sitting, that’s when we wash our body, and then the last thing we do is rinse out our conditioner.”
The big problem? Under the heat of the shower your pores are open and when the oils from our conditioner are allowed to sit on the skin, they can easily clog up those open pores.
Luckily Christie says there’s a quick fix. Simply wash your hair as normal, condition it and then clip your hair off your skin while you wash your body. It’ll mean the conditioner isn’t given time to sit on your skin and potentially clog up your pores. Easy.
