I have fairly good skin. The one place it aint good lookin is on my bottom!.
The skin gets red spots, dark spots...all kind of mottled in look and texture.
How do I fix it this problem? Why does my bottom look sooo bad when the rest of me which is exposed to a tropical sun, is not? I thoughts the elements played a part in wreaking havoc on exposed skin. Here it is the other way around!
Please help.

Hi,

Are you talking pimples? You also said dark spots so I'm guessing also from pimples. One thing I read that really works for me is to use baby powder on your bottom. The article I read said that lots of folks break out there because of the extra moisture. I used to break out too, but not anymore. It totally helped. When I get out of the shower, I put on a lotion with alpha hydroxy acids in it to even skin tone and smooth. When that's all soaked in, I use Johnson's Lavendar and Chamomile Baby Powder.

Hi there, thanx for your response. Yes there are bumps, pimples I guess. Baby talc hunh? Interesting. I shall give it a try. Alpha hydroxy, any particular lotion? I hope that will help in getting rid of the previous marks. x

Hi,

I live in Germany so I don't have access to the lotions you have in the states-if that's where you are writing from. I am using Jergens Smoothing Lotion that has fruit acids in it but that was the only choice I had. I would just pick one that has Alpha Hydroxy Acids and says that it will smooth uneven skin tone on it.

And don't forget to powder your bottom every single day!

I just realized that your bumps may also be tiny ingrown hairs. That's a genetic condition often seen on the backs of people's arms, but also on the thighs and buttocks--Keratosis Pilaris. If that's the case, the AHA lotion should help, and make sure you not only chemically but physically exfoliate. You'll also need lots of moisturizing. Google it to look up some treatments!

I do exfoliate....but perhaps I could be a bit more regular at it. Along with AHA & Talc. Your logic is great, and your advice sounds rather well informed! Bet I'll get that baby's bottom yet thanx to you, hmm?

i had a tca 15 percent done on mine last week, it's peeling now and really feels smooth.. to soothe dryness while it's peeling im using nivea creme or coconut oil or petroleum jelly.

definitely gonna try an aha lotion once my skin healed on that part
