Manhattan Dermatologist Dr. Schweiger tells US Weekly online the best ways to prepare your skin for this summer’s hottest fashion trend

To get rid of body breakouts, cleanse your back and chest with a face or body wash that contains benzoyl peroxide (5% or higher) or salicylic acid (2% is ideal), New York City dermatologist Eric Schweiger tells Us Weekly. Use it with the Clarisonic PLUS, which has an attachable body brush ($225, to buff away dead skin cells and remove more dirt and oil than regular washing, says Schweiger. Post-shower, spot-treat zits with the same drying potion that you use on your face. In addition to clearing up blemishes, it's crucial to treat your chest area as you do your face. Exfoliate daily with a gentle body scrub or the Clarisonic PLUS in the shower. Also, apply an antioxidant-rich serum and a daily moisturizing sunscreen every day to prevent a rough, "crepe-y" appearance, says Schweiger. We like Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Hydra-Pure Firming Serum ($95, and Peter Thomas Roth Max All Day Moisture Defense Cream SPF 30 ($42, To read the actual article in US Weekly featuring Dr. Schweiger, click here.
