As one of my new year’s resolutions, I committed to start practicing yoga daily. From constantly being in leggings during my practice, I developed folliculitis (also known as butt acne). I was devastated because having acne has always made me feel insecure and uncomfortable. I didn’t want to give up my new self-care ritual, but knew I had to do something.
After looking up how to treat butt acne, I learned that many people suffer from common skin issues. 59% of Americans aren’t comfortable in their own skin, with 67% citing skin issues. For me, the butt acne was caused by sweat and bacteria getting trapped in my yoga pants creating an imbalance of the skin microbiome. I started looking for products to help treat the pimples but was unable to find a healthy or environmentally-responsible solution.
One day a friend of mine mentioned Miami Beach Bum and said “it literally works like magic!” I was happy to learn that it is women-owned, made in the USA, vegan and cruelty-free. I bought the Bum + Body Cream and started using it as a treatment twice a day.
I couldn’t believe the results! After only two-weeks the red bumps were completely gone. I could feel my confidence coming back knowing that my skin was clear and being restored back to its healthy, natural state of homeostasis.
The Bum + Body Cream is made with oregano, aloe and jojoba oil. These plant ingredients work together to deeply hydrate, reduce inflammation, and balance your skin’s microbiome. Most common skin concerns, like body acne, folliculitis, fungal infections, eczema, and keratosis pilaris all stem from an imbalance of bacteria, yeast or fungus in your skin’s microbiome. By balancing these microorganisms, the root cause of your skin irritation is being solved.
A jar lasts me 2 full months, and I subscribed and saved 20% so that I never run out. My skin has never looked smoother or healthier. Thank you, Miami Beach Bum!
