We have all experienced acne during our adolescence. Those red, swollen bumps on your cheeks that hurt every time you tried to scratch that itch. 

Phew! Just thinking about it gives us the chills! 

While we are quick to care for the acne on our face - applying lotions and what not, we forget to address the acne on the rest of our body. 

Understanding Body Acne

Body acne is the presence of acne lesions and cysts on areas other than the face like shoulders, back, chest, upper arms and buttocks. 

Surprisingly, it is more common that we may think with about 50% people experiencing at some point in their lives. And yet, there is often a sense of taboo surrounding it.

It’s essential to remember and remind those around us that having body acne does not define your worth! 

Whether it's on the back, chest, or other areas, this condition can cause emotional distress and feelings of insecurity. Society's focus on flawless skin can exacerbate these feelings, leading to self-consciousness and avoidance of certain activities or clothing choices.

Remember, self-care goes beyond physical treatments. Nurturing your mental and emotional well-being is equally important. :) 

Surround yourself with supportive and understanding individuals who appreciate you for who you are. Engage in activities that make you feel confident and uplifted, regardless of the state of your skin.

Amrutam Face Clean Up Reviews

Currently on my second bottle and happy with how this product has kept acne & breakouts in check. It doesn't leave the skin too dry and also doubles as a face mask.

Juhi Bhatt

Amrutam face clean up works great on any skin type, it has helped me keep my skin inflammation in check, helps with acne and clear the open pores. Continuous usage has helped lighten the pigmentation and scars as well. I have recommended the face clean up to many people and they have all loved it!!

Sakshi Dobhal

This really changed the game of how to maintain skin soft supple and glowing! I’m using it since few weeks and see hell lot of difference in the skin I had before and now. I don’t need any makeup or foundation to cover my skin imperfections since now they are slowly fading away after I started using this! I would say this product doesn’t need any kind of review because it’s above par than expected. It’s a blind buy honestly . I’m looking forward to buy more products and repeat this regularly henceforth.
