I'd recommend a Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide body wash. You can get some good tea tree oil body washes, too. Used in the shower every day they should help. If your acne is quite bad and inflamed, BP would probably be best. If it's mainly just clogged with whiteheads and blackheads SA would be good. I use Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash. I don't get acne on my body, just clogged pores and the odd pimple and it works great.

I think some people apply 5 or 10% BP cream or gel to their body acne also.

I would say a Salicylic Acid wash followed by a BP wash is about as good as you can do with out resorting to antibiotics.

Try to avoid soaps I say and keep away from fragrances as they may aggrevate your skin.

You could also try BP cream/gel
