In addition to the face, acne may develop on the neck, back, upper legs and buttock. Body acne is relatively easy to control. During the first two to three weeks, the Antibacterial Cleanser or Septicide Cleanser and the Glycolic Exfoliator should be used once daily in the area(s) where acne occurs. Gentle Follicle Exfoliator can be used in place of the Glycolic Exfoliator if the skin is dry and/or sensitive. Green Tea Poultice can be used as a spot treatment to speed the healing of prior infections.
Control is usually achieved within the first two weeks. With some experimentation you can determine the frequency with which the skin must be treated to maintain control.
