It may not have been talked about as much as facial acne, but back acne (sometimes known as “bacne”) is a pesky problem suffered by many women and men alike, especially aggravated by the hot and humid weather in Singapore.
Many people – both with acne-prone skin and even those without – who suffer from it find it hard to find solutions to get rid of this skin concern because there aren’t many products out there that specifically target at it. It’s impractical to use regular acne treatment cream on these areas since our body skin is structured differently from facial skin. These treatment creams can also stain our clothes.
This is why when we heard that the JSOOP Bio-Piel Petit Ato Body Lotion, the #1 best-selling body lotion for back acne in Korea, is in Singapore, we were excited. Looks like we may finally have an effective, accessible solution to bacne now!
How does the Bio-Piel Petit Ato Body Lotion work?
First, let’s understand the causes of back acne:
- Overactive sebum glands: Oily skin is more prone to acne because acne-causing bacteria “feeds” on clogged oil plugs in our pores
- Inflammation: Exposure to acne-causing bacteria because of ineffective cleansing
- Skin fails as a good barrier: The balance of oil and water in skin is disrupted and unable to protect itself from external irritation
- Lack of antioxidants: Skin is exposed to harmful environmental aggressors, leading to inflammation, which is a form of oxidative stress
We looked through the ingredients that the Bio-Piel Body Lotion contains and noticed how they work hand-in-hand to eliminate back acne visibly.
First, the Bio-Piel Body Lotion contains Cypress Oil Extract. This ingredient has powerful antiseptic and oil-control properties that does two things for you: it provides relief for overactive sebum glands while speeding up heal time when skin is inflamed.
Its formula is also enriched with Ceramide NP and Hyaluronic Acid. You may have heard a lot about these two skincare powerhouses because of their great affinity with skin, making them great for enhancing our skin’s moisture level. They also help balance the oil and water level in skin so that skin can be healthier, and work better as an effective barrier.
Finally, Chamaecyparis Obtusa water and oil are carefully selected antioxidants added into the formula to reduce oxidative stress including inflammation, so that acne formation can be prevented at an early stage.
The best part? This product may have rose to fame because of its ability to clear bacne, but it is also a great daily body moisturiser that’s mild on all skin types and sustain hydration of skin.
DV Tip: Application right after shower helps retain moisture better. Make sure your skin is thoroughly dry before application. For best results, use it with the Bio-Piel Petit Ato Body Wash, available in Sasa and the Beauty Carousel online store.
What do people think about the Bio-Piel Body Lotion?
According to online reviews, most people who tried it love the product’s texture. They said that it absorbs very quickly into skin and doesn’t feel sticky at all – something that you definitely look out for when buying a body lotion to use in Singapore.
A few reviewers say that they bought the body lotion after recommendations from their friends and/or family members who have benefited from the product, and several of them made repeated purchases after seeing the positive results for themselves.
One of the reviewers say that she started observing improvements in her back acne condition just a few days after she started using the product and a few others say that they find relief in itch on their skin very quickly after using the product.
A few bloggers have also tried the Bio-Piel Petit Ato Body Lotion and swear by it. Blogger Fenny, better known as Ladies Journal, asked her friend who suffer from back acne to try out the product and have these amazing before-and-after photos to share.
