Not to be confused with Chesney, chestne is the irritating breakout we sometimes get along our chest, clavicle, and overall decolletage. It’s especially infuriating in the warmer months, when we’re ready to wear delicate tanks and bikinis and show some skin. We want to feel clear, smooth, and confident rocking our favorite summer looks, so what gives with chest pimples?
It turns out, the skin on our chest is not so crazy different from the skin on our face. It is thinner than a lot of our body surface area, it’s exposed to the sun and the elements often, it can become oily or dry, and it’s touched more often than the rest of our body.
That being said, we should make sure to treat it with the same loving attention we give our faces, especially if we’re prone to breakouts. Heed these tips for a clear, sexy summer.
Best Skin Ever Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Oil
Give yourself a little extra pump of your favorite cleanser, and work downward. This will require you to either be wearing a tank top or wash your face topless, but in most settings that shouldn’t be an issue. Give yourself a proper cleanse, make sure to rinse thoroughly, and pat to dry.
This is crucial for all acne sufferers, of every kind. Sweat is one of the body’s major modes of detoxification, and letting those toxins sit on the skin for an extended period of time is not a good call for sensitive, acne-prone pores. Make sure to save time for a shower, even if it’s only a quick rinse, and wash your problem areas with soap or cleanser.

Polished Exfoliating Mittens
Exfoliation is key, but we don’t want to overdo it, especially in this area. The chest skin is a little thinner, so our regular body scrub may be exacerbating the issue and really irritating this delicate area. These exfoliating mitts are super fine and gentle, so we can use them a couple of times a week.
