This really has got my back very clear indeed.

Apply strong salicylic acid toner (with cotton wool pads)

wait to dry

Apply dettol liquid (1:1 ratio with water)

The toner i use is Oxy daily cleanser, but i don't think it matters too much what brand you use, as long as it has a fair bit of salicylic acid in it.

The important step is the dettol liquid. It contains 4.8% chloroxylenol (PCMX) which kills 99.9% of ALL bacteria (gram negative and gram positive)

You need to dilute the dettol liquid down to half strength -

so for example 50ml dettol:50ml water

I have found the best way to apply the dettol solution is by using a spritzer/spray bottle (this allows you to reach all areas of your back).

The dettol solution WILL sting and smell very medicinal but it works. The regimen cleared my chest acne and bacne completely within about 3 weeks.

The Science

SA unclogs pores, removes dead skin cells and exfoliates skin....

allowing the antibacterial dettol to reach very deep inside the pores and kill acne causing bacteria.
