Acne happens to the best of us. No matter your genetic makeup, chances are, you've had to deal with a pesky zit or two or twenty. While facial acne gets all the attention, we don't talk enough about body acne — and that's not just back acne (aka bacne). Since skin is the body's largest organ, we can get acne anywhere and everywhere from head to toe.

Click through for a selection of tried-and-true lotions, scrubs and sprays that will banish your body acne quickly and effectively.
