I’ve been plagued with body acne since my teenaged years. It’s something I’m always super self-conscious about. The sweaty, dirtiness that inherently comes with being an outdoors person is the perfect breeding ground for body acne. Throughout the years, I’ve slowly refined and tweaked my skincare routine to manage bacne. Here’s how to prevent body acne (or bacne) in the outdoors, and anywhere else, really.
I’m secretly a skincare junkie. I ran a beauty blog prior to Little Grunts. I’m always on the lookout for the latest and greatest to swap into my kit, even if it means wreaking havoc on my skin. These days, I’ve largely committed myself to Acure Organics.
Their products are largely organic and free from gluten, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, harmful preservatives and artificial colors. They do not test on animals. They are a sustainable company that promotes green packaging, recycled materials, and biodegradable product.10 cents for every Day Cream and Night Cream sold supports Unite For HER’s efforts. Acure also supports Turning Green.
Bottom line: Acure Organics is a company that does good, for your skin and for the planet.
Move over, Sun Bum. I have a new favorite in the house. COOLA isn’t your typical skincare brand geared towards outdoorsy folks. In fact, their offerings lean more towards the non-dirtbag types. But their sport line? That’s something that does good and works. The COOLA Suncare Sport SPF 50 Unscented Moisturizer blows everything else out of the water.
As of late, my sunscreen has been a standalone part of my skincare routine. It does one purpose and one purpose only: protect me from harmful UV rays and all that stuff. That is, until I went backpacking with the BullFrog Mosquito Coast SPF 30 Continuous Spray Sunscreen. This bottle of sunscreen saved my life.
Sunscreen is an absolute must in summer months when you’re hiking up a storm and sweating bullets in the heat. But a lot of sunscreen is a pain to pack and carry making it easy to forget to stop and apply. Bullfrog Sunscreen’s new WaterArmor line makes it easy to stay protected.
