"Because oil glands on your back are larger than those on your face and tend to produce more oil, acne-creating bacteria can flourish there," says Paul Friedman, M.D., a dermatologist and coauthor of Beautiful Skin Revealed.

Remove sweaty clothes and shower right after exercise with a zit-busting benzoyl peroxide wash.
