The Ultimate Problem Solver For Body Acne

127 posts in this topic

Day 3 of the regimen on my back and all i have to say is...

WOW.

So far most of the red spots under the skin from previous acne are going away so fast and I only have a FEW zits on whole back. By a few I mean like 3 or 4..yea going from pizza to almost clear in a few days is incredible.

My shoulders are usually the worst part and they feel as smooth as butter : D

So I'd say a few more days of this and all acne will be subsiding and red marks will be faded. Keep up with this and use it 3-4 times per day. It's never hurts with this stuff to apply too much. It's good for the acne.

I must say I'm very pleased. Not only that, the BP/AHA regimen is keeping my face looking really good now. Just waiting for some marks to fade and a pimple here and there every once in awhile.

I'll post again one week from today and post some previous and after pics. You'll be amazed

so this is my first post on this site. i have been checking it out for awhile to try and solve this bacne that has been haunting me since last december. my back used to be perfect i dont know what happened.. but ANYWAYS. i tried this gold bond stuff last nigth and the night before that. it seems to be drying out the zits really well. BUT i was really dissapointed to wake up this morning with a new one on my shoulder, considering everyone on here is saying it stopped them from getting zits completely. but i will continue to use and hope for the best, thank god this summer is already shit makes not being able to wear my numerous adorable tanks and strapless shirts much easier.

I understand how you feel. The powder can't really prevent new acne, but helps dry everything out. How I see it (and I can be completely wrong) is that if you leave that powder on all day (with a few touch ups here & there), oil can't be on the surface as much thus lessening your chance of clogging pores. Also, it helps reduce redness so if anything your acne can look better, won't hurt as much, etc.

okay, so i see no improvement but i've only tried it 2 times. acctually. i broke out really bad but i think thats cause all at once i switched everything. i started using neutrogena body clear body wash and this gold bond body powder. i hope it gets better (= i put it on while my back was still wet after a shower.. and i can feel it on my back.. my backs all cool feeling.it feels weird. what are zinc tablets? and where would i get them?

you can buy the zinc tablets/pills anywhere like at Wal-Mart, CVS, or Wal-Green. just go to the supplement/nutrient isle look for zinc supplement. they're pretty cheap like 5 bucks for 100 caplets. i guess when u apply the gold bond powder, people say to stand in the shower stall or tub only for the reason not to make a big mess on your bathroom floor. its much easier to apply in the tub and have all the excess powder fall to the bottom of the tub than oppose to your actually bathroom floor. and NO do not rinse it off, it suppose to be on your back all day.


Acne is the never ending war. Countless battles fought everyday against it. All the arsenal unleash to overcome it. FU8k, WHEN WILL I FINALLY WIN?

I FINALLY WON!!! Well on my face that is. 2 months and going all clear. YAY!!!!!!

I couldn't find the extra strength. the regular is called triple action too by the way. where did you guys find the extra strength?

I have been using this for a week and I see an improvement in my chest but I am only using the regular. I'll just use this for a while because it seems to make everything better.

I am interested in taking zinc pills, but i'll look that up in the hollistic section.

Wow, I'm definately going to try this out. I really want my bacne gone, because it's so embarrassing and disgusting. I didn't go to my junior prom because of it, and I'm contemplating whether or not I should go this year if I still have it. It's really taken a toll on my self-esteem and I just want it gone!!! I want to be able to go try on cute tank tops and not hate my skin. I've tried everything, so let's hope this one works! Thanks!

The way I use it is pour it into my hand then rub it around my back, shoulders, chest and upper arms. It works really well, but I think BP and AHA are still the key for my bacne

I've been using this a few days. I had to stop at the weekend cause I went to a music festival and thought I'd be taking the mick a bit pouring it on my back whilst in a tiny tent, so haven't used it as much as is recommended, but I haven't had one new spot. I still have my scarring on the tops of my arms though which i HATE cause i can't wear any vests :(

I'm about to start to do something for my back acne..and I just bought a pack of this hopefully it comes in soon. I was wondering if this sounds like an acceptable regimen

Wash back (Cleanser)

Apply Bio Oil

Apply Powder

Sound good to you guys? Think I should add in any AHA? Also I was thinking about adding olive oil into my face regimen...any thoughts on that..thanks much appreciated.

Found this article and thought Id post it. Though its mainly about the benefits of zinc oxide in mineral makeup.

http://www.portland-oregon-magazine.com/ne...2007-05-04.html

Besides expediting wound healing, zinc oxide has proven itself effective at removing facial blemishes as equaling vexing as acne- warts. According to a report in the International Journal of Dermatology, topically applied zinc oxide treated warts better than a combination of salicylic acid (a common active ingredient in topical acne medications) and lactic acid.

Question, is it worth applying if I'm going to be sweating all day? I live in a really hot city and just walking around outside maybe a total of 30 minutes each day really makes me sweat like hell. So would this stuff work on the body and face if 5 minutes after applying I'm sweating profusely?

Thanks for posting this, OP. I can't seem to find the regular Gold Bond Body Powder. It's all extra strength or medicated or extra comfort or medicated original strength... does it make any difference which one you use? Or should I just get some generic baby powder? Thanks...
