Gold Bond, Gold Bond, Gold Bond! (edited, I thought Baby Powder and Gold Bond were the same thing =/ stupid me)

My back had been breaking out for the past few months out of nowhere. I never had body acne in my life, only facial acne so it was quite surprising!

As you can see its pretty much cleared up minus a few moderate sized ones. And alot of those bumps on my back are actually moles, so be sure to decipher between the two! Hehe.

I use the normal Gold Bond Body Powder. the zinc in it heals the skin as well as keep it dry, thus preventing the acne from forming and healing your current marks at the same time. smile.gif

Hope you guys like it! It works. And excuse my body in the pics, I kinda let myself go lately and gained some weight. =/ But I'm losing it as we speak. tongue.gif

The order of the pics is from left to right, worst to best.

The first pic is from 2 weeks ago. The second pic is from a week ago. The third pic is today.

i bought some of this today because after reading this, I was almost convinced it would work. Did you know that it also has salyclic acid in it too? well, the extra strength one does. I don't know about the regular. So what's the easiest way to use it? I tried "wheezing" it all over my back and chest. But then I starting inhaling it so then i shook it all over and rubbed it in. I also tried putting some in my hands and then working it around. It was frustrating and messy. Maybe I'll stand in the shower and do it.
Current Regimen:

AM: Blot or maybe rinse with water
Skin Gel by Aloe Life on pimples
Sometimes everyday minerals to cover up

PM: cleanse with jojoba oil, steam face with wash cloth and gently exfoliate (if I'm not lazy)
Skin Gel....like a mask all over my face :)

I have discovered that my acne isn't better when I am always trying to medicate it... When i wash my face every night and use specific acne solutions, my acne is no better. I once went 5 days without washing (out of pure laziness actually) I even wore makeup and all that jazz haha ew, and my skin didn't get worse. I find I have less big pimples, and whatever I do have there is dried up fantastically by the aloe gel.

I'm pretty sure the root cause of my acne is completely internal...hormonal most likely.

This product seems to work very well. It prevents break outs and heals old ones fast. I apply it after each time I shower. It has a really nice cooling sensation as well smile.gif

So far this seems to work better than H&S for me. I've used it for almost a week now with hardly any new break outs, hopefully it keeps working as well as it has.

Gold bond extra strength medicated body powder along with 50mg zinc/day, a potent multi vitamin, lots of exercise, water, healthy food, and a good amount of sleep each night, and stress relieving activities seems to help a lot.

p.s my condition was a lot worse than the pics from britney spears

I use Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion, Aloe, and it really helps. I haven't had any chest zits since I've been using it. The stuff smells pretty good, too.

Does that suff have healing ingredients like the body powder does (zinc) ?

Well I hate to break it to the rest of the people but I really doubt that this is a The Ultimate Problem Solver" for body acne. Judging by your first pic you barely had an acne at an maybe 5 belmishes, but they where def not cysts, or nodudles, just by your vast sweeping ritorical statments I have to say that you must be very young under age of I would say 16 or so right? Did you ever think it was not the gold bond that helped you and it cleared up on its own, I bet that was the case!

I don't think it has zinc, but it's supposed to contain "7 Intense moisturizers" and vitamins A, C, and E. eusa_think.gif

Well, I'm a 23 year old male. I've used gold bond body powder for about 9 days now and I've had drastic improvements and no new break outs since using it. I'm not going to post pictures of myself on here but my condition was A LOT worse than the pics posted in this thread.

p.s it's spelled "rhetorical" not ritorical

That's not very nice. You must be very young too to be disrespectful to the OP. He/she was just helping others. If you don't believe in his/her success, move on to other treatments. We all know that skincare is YMMV. We're just here on the forum to get tips and advice.

Thanks for sharing this! I don't have body acne, but I know that it's a problem a lot of people have, and while this may not help everybody, if it helps just one person that's wonderful. =)

I've been a bacne sufferer for years. Since 6th Grade, I want to say. I just graduated.

Right now, I'm the closest I've ever come to being cured. I use Head and Shoulders Intensive Care with Selenium Sulfide as a body wash while in the shower, and it has majorly improved my condition. I'm pretty pale (six years of not being in the sun shirtless will do that to a person) so I'm sure my problem isn't as bad as I think it is, but I still relish the fact that I have very few active blemishes. My shoulders are almost 100% clear. My back is almost as well, with only a few faded red marks remaining that I think I might try to tan out. My chest is the biggest problem area, but it's mostly red marks.

Tonight, I'm going to try pHisoderm Salicylic Acid body wash in the shower and apply the Gold Bond powder after I get out. Here's hoping it works. I'll keep this updated.

Cleanser: I should probably use one of these, huh?
Moisturizer: Well, my skin doesn't exactly require one, but I use Cetaphil with SPF15 during the day, just for the sun protection. Red marks, I will not let your cruel photosynthesis ruin my complexion!

Current Status: Looking better, but still not perfect.

Britney, Britney, Britney. I owe you something. I don't know what, but I definitely owe you.

I've tried so much for my bacne. I mean, I've had facial acne for quite a while but dermatologist-prescribed medications have mostly fixed that problem, but I've never been able to get a satisfactory solution for my back, chest, or shoulders. I couldn't use BP because I didn't have clothes that I don't mind bleaching. Salicylic was not working, no matter what form it took. Spray, body wash, scrub, you name it. Tried ACV, tried MoM. Tried eliminating soda from my diet, didn't work (and now I'm back on my sweet, sweet nectar...I love Sprite). Just...nothing worked, ever.

Today, I sit here with massively faded red marks, one active blemish next to my left nipple, and one receding blemish on my right shoulder, at the end of the clavicle. For the first time in six years, I'm going to get a tan. That will finish off the problem for good. I can go swimming...I can hot tub...I can do so much. You, Britney, are my hero for suggesting this.


My body regimen:

Morning: If not showering, apply Gold Bond Extra Strength Medicated Body Powder to problem areas.

Night: Same as morning.

Whenever you shower: Apply Head and Shoulders Intensive Care shampoo to body. Leave on for two or three minutes, wash off. Apply Zapzyt 2% Salicylic Acid Wash, leave on for two or three minutes, wash off. Get out, dry off, and apply Gold Bond.



In less than a week, I've seen such drastic results, I'm literally...hmm, what's a good word...flabbergasted. I am flabbergasted. Thank you Britney Spears (never thought I'd be saying that haha)!

Hmm, wouldn't hurt to try I guess. First thread I looked at since I just signed up and I really hope it works! Tired of trying to deal with this problem alone smile.gif
