i don't get acne on my face, back butt, shoulders, but every once in a while i get acne on my boobs and it annoys the hell out of me, because if i don't touch it, it goes away within 3 days, but i can't help but squeeze and pick at it, which creates a huge red spot that looks like a hickey with a gross bug bite in the middle. don't touch the boobne, girls.
Okay, I knew a few girls (and guys) who had bad acne and they were still beautiful. One guy had plaque(?) acne and he was ripped. I felt so sorry for him (he was Extraordinarily self conscious about it). He's married with a couple kids though, and she's in love with him. Dude works Exceedingly hard for her
What what on the butt butt?
I'm sorry, I had to laugh.
To be honest, everyone has skin issues at one time or another. You either do too much, too little, or are stressed. This happens to a Lot of fair skinned girls, so...:-p
Guys don't Really care That much. Once puberty settles down, it's really not an issue. Getting some sun helps a Lot.
Omg I love you!!! Thank you sooo much for addressing this issue...seeing thousands of pictures of clear and smooth butts of hot girls on social media,I started to grow insecurities about my body cuz mine has got so many flaws! 😭😭😭 but watching this video was very comforting,now I feel like I'm not the odd one out..you made my day! one other issue I'd love you to discuss is "dark genitals" like buttholes or vagina that don't matc
I get underboobne sometimes and it's usually after a hot and sticky summer day. I have really long workshifts at the bakery so I can't exactly take a shower. Blehk! My bra gets soaked with underboob sweat (big boob problems!) and the sweat and bacteria have no where to go so they sit, clog and irritate me >:(
I had this so bad during the end of puberty when I was like 16. But I barely wore thongs back then and had to wear school uniform skirt. so no tight pants. It went away when I started the Antibaby Pill and since then ir never came back.
What about the Pitne? I get armpit acne ALL THE TIME! I've tried dozens of different deodorants (plus none at all), shaving or not, bras of all shapes and styles, but it never goes away for long. I hate pitne.
Oh my god, I used to get them so bad in middle school that it hurt to sit down for any period of time! I first thought they were spider bites, but when they just kept coming, I had no idea what to do. Thankfully, they've calmed down since then lol
you are not supposed to ware panties under "yoga pants", for example the Nike dry fit shorts/leggings and supposed to be an underwear in themselves to prevent chafing and trapped sweat (trapped but sweat is super bad as it can lead to bladder infections and thrush because of all that bacteria build up). You should be waring shorts over this type of sports ware or if u wanna show of ur cool ass sports ware just no panties/thongs. (pun slightly intended).
I am very sure "buttne" is more prevalent recently because people are on their butts more than they were previously...we sit all day at work/school then go home and sit some more...get up! And get up in some breathable fabric! There's a reason why walking in the door and taking off the pants is a favourite past-time.
You are most definitely right!!! Underboobne does exist. I use antiperspirant on my under boob and it helps a lot. I am a 42FF so I got a whole lot of underbooby to deal with. Also is really warm weather if I am going to be out and about and likely sweating I will use baby powder to help with the moisture issues.
Wow, two years after starting the show, Cristen confesses that the program title is a big fat lie, it's not actually a show about what mom never told you!!
Thank's for wasting the better part of the last two years of my life on failing to acquire the information mom hide from me Cristen.
I'm now gonna crawl into a corner and cry ;)
Wow and here I thought I got butt acne from my dad. Because for the last 30 years he's been telling me "oh you got zits on your butt? Sorry, you got those from me, I have them too." I'm wondering if other body "zits" are for similar reasons, like armpitne, and my "favorite," crotchne. *cries a little* ;)
Thanks for this vid. I'm really happy that maybe instead of inheriting horrible things I just need to tweak my cleaning and clothing habits.
I have long assumed that having someone to help with butt zits, crotch zits, ear zits, back of the head zits and zits anywhere else you can't effectively deal with, on your own, are on the short list of reasons why people get married. To have and to hold, to love and to cherish, to help with awkward skin maintenance issues.
I've noticed a few things help. Coconut oil really helps with acne all over. Exercise/yoga pants/thongs all contribute but I also think sitting for long periods does too. It's essentially rubbing fabric against your skin, collecting grime and skin cells and oil and grinding it into your booty pores.
Buttne... I thought only men with hairy butts got it. Now I'm incredibly grateful for the lack of thongs and yoga pants in my life. Underboobne, however, is a recent discovery for me. I put it on my ever-growing list of weird pregnancy symptoms nobody ever told me about, along with random allergic reactions and the sudden proliferation of hangnails.
I can confirm the working out in a thong one. I was prone to one or 2 pimples and hated it. Then one day I randomly heard it's working out in a thong that's to blame. I was dubious at first, but now I only work out in big knickers and no more pimples. Also, Nike have these nice tight running leggings that even hid the visible panty line.
I've had a couple of conversations with gal-pals ;) about getting clogged poors on our breasts. This makes more sense when you think about how most bra's aren't made of fabrics that don't breath and you're wearing it for like 12 hours everyday.
ANSWERS HAVE FINALLY BEEN FOUND!!!!!!!!
-_______- still wearing a bra everyday and still have clogged pores though.
Sometimes it's not acne or folliculitis, but keratosis pilaris, which is extremely common on the upper thighs and lower butt. In those cases, a lotion and cleanser with uric or lactic acid will help, like AmLactin.
Yeah! I wore track shorts for the first time in years and the built-in underwear sit lower on my butt than my actual underwear, so the friction gave me those lesions for sure. At first I thought that since the shorts would ride up, I had caught herpes on my butt from sitting on a chair in shorts. Now I'm about 95% sure that's not the case
+MorroWolf I think you did that by saying you don't expect females to "be experts on ball science" but no I'm not trying to make it a big deal, my original comment was intended to be extra-dryly humorous
+MorroWolf then why are you comparing boob struggles to ball struggles? boobne is probably a thing larger-chested girls experience (being an a cup here I haven't...bittersweet) but that doesn't mean I think guys with big balls have ballne

Don't use benzoyl peroxide to treat acne spots on any part of your body that will be touching fabric.
BP bleaches. A lot.
Unless you have white towels, which sheets, white undergarments, and white clothes, the benzoyl will ruin any coloured fabrics that come into contact with it. Even after you think it's dry, it'll still bleach your fabrics. I have ruined more than one set of sheets and my favourite shirt that way.
Benzoyl peroxide is also used to bleach hair and teeth, and in some places (this is not me endorsing this practice AT ALL) people use it to bleach their skin. So.... yeah. It'll bleach your fabrics.
A better over the counter topical acne medication is called salicylic acid. It shouldn't bleach things, but I would test it on a small, inconspicuous area on like the inside of your pillowcase, just to make sure.
It works differently than BP, but I've found it to be better for my skin. I would
If your acne is distressing you, and especially if it hurts, go to a dermatologist. They'll likely start you on oral antibiotics and offer you a prescription for a topical medication called clindamycin phosphate. Ask the dermatologist for the one without benzoyl peroxide. The pharmacy might need to special order it, but clindamycin itself doesn't bleach.
If /that/ doesn't work to control your acne, tretinoin, which is what I'm on now, is really great. As far as I can tell, it doesn't bleach, and while it isn't the most comfortable topical medication at first, your skin gets used to it and it works wonders.
