Frequent baths?

Recommended Posts

Is it true that frequent baths can aggrevate back/chest acne?

I take a hot bath almost every night. Before I get out, I soap up and rinse myself with clean water but I'm wondering if maybe it's still causing problems.

I haven't heard of this happening, though just in case I recommend keeping your tub clean, using a scrub on your problem areas, and adding the following mixture to your bath for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.

1 tsp. Honey

1 tsp. Safflower or Sunflower Oil (Your choice.)

A few drops of Tea Tree

Also, keep your water temperature down. Hot water is very drying to the skin.
