Best Ways To Get Rid Of Butt Acne

OMG! What did I just hear… ‘A Belfie’… like seriously … I wondered after selfies its’s time for Belfies… yes, the bum selfies…. I found it a crazy idea but then my second thoughts were that skin is skin and anywhere on the human body it should look clean and healthy. But acne can flare up anywhere, face, upper arms or even butt. It is such a nasty thing.

Okay, I know you will find it nasty if I tell you all to run your hand on your butt and check if there are any pimples out there. No I am serious darlings, this is really serious, and if you are taking me lightly then you must check butt acne images on google and then you will realise why I am writing about a topic which is either never spoken about or if done then in a hush-hush tone. Finding pimples on your derriere is probably a very common thing yet nobody wants to admit it. There are so many of us who have had a butt blemish at the back side.

If you ever find that the skin on your backside is sporting some pimples, then you bet dear your butt is in trouble. According to dermatologists, these little pimples are folliculitis which are formed by dead skin cells and bacteria in the hair follicles.

Victims of butt acne

Butt Acne

Like pimples or acne on your face, butt acne too is caused by blocked pores or clogged follicles and believe me they never discriminate between men and women and can affect the skin of both equally.

All those fitness conscious people who workout a lot or those who sit on their bums are the main victims of this skin problem.

How to avoid Butt Acne?

There are a few simple things we can do to treat these pimples.

  • Exfoliate and unclog the pores

Most of us use exfoliating creams to clean our facial skin. Next time when you are doing it just take a bit of extra exfoliating cream and buff up your bum. As I said earlier skin is skin and clean bum is a happy bum. Give your bottom a scrub with a soft scrub or soft loofah will make you slough away the dead skin on your butt. Of course don’t ever think that this would get rid of existing pimples but it surely would prevent burst out in the future.

You can also use a body wash with benzoyl peroxide which is an ingredient to get rid of folliculitis since it dries up and sloughs off the dead skin clogging the follicle.

  • Treat

Once you finish exfoliating then its time for using a shower gel with salicylic acid, which keeps pimples from starting afresh. Any benzoyl peroxide cream as a spot treatment too is effective.

Using any Lotion with Lactic Acid also is a wonderful way to soothe and smoothen the skin.  So please do not shy away from slathering on a moisturizing body lotion down there.

breathable undergarments

Nylon underpants and too-tight undergarments trap perspiration and lead to irritation, including small bumps. So as we have already mentioned so many times earlier to get out of the synthetic underwears and go for the breathable cotton ones.

Home Remedies to treat the butt acne

Coconut oil

Using coconut oil on the butt is nothing but a natural way of treating the problem in the easiest way. So when you finish taking bath dry up the skin of your bums and massage with coconut oil.


Honey benefits nutrition factsHoney is an excellent thing to cure many skin problems including butt acne and pimples. So how about a dab of honey there and a little pampering of those little or not so little bums of yours?

Baking soda

May I suggest the cheapest possible remedy you can try at home for butt acne? It is using baking soda. You can prepare a thick paste with the baking soda and water. Keep this paste on the pimple and lie down on your belly. Let the paste be there for about 10 to 15 minutes and then  rinse it off. This remedy cleans and treats the butt acne very fast.

Maintain hygiene

Maintaining hygiene is the key solution to most of the skin related problems. Bacteria which is the main cause of pimple is born due to the lack of hygiene. They grow fast by feeding on un hygiene. so my suggestion would be to keep clean and fresh to avoid such conditions. It would be better if you don’t stay in tight clothes throughout the day so as to avoid sweating and clogging of pores.

Always take a shower after a sweat session as sitting around in your workout clothes after you’ve been hitting it hard in the gym would surely invite bacteria to cause butt acne.

And before I leave you to look after your butt, let me ask you a question…. Are you ready for your butt selfie… oops… Belfie?

Try these tips and have a rear clear of butt acne.
