Still trying to figure out how to treat postpartum acne? You’re not alone. I’ve been there! And postpartum acne can be extremely stubborn. Read on to find out how I got rid of mine for good.
If you’ve struggled with problematic skin for pretty much your whole life, I feel you. I have been there and back. I was totally that awkward kid in middle school with acne and frizzy hair (and a questionable choice in clothing). I have literally struggled with my skin since the start of my adolescence.
I am one of those people who has actually tried everything; from natural solutions to drugstore brands, nothing has ever helped my skin. Even when I was pregnant I didn’t get the coveted pregnancy glow. Yes, I totally missed out on the pregnancy glow! So after Harper was born it was of very little surprise to me that I got the worst, most painful postpartum acne. But not just regular acne, I got bacne. Bacne? Oh yeah. Acne on the back.
So needless to say, I tried everything natural I could think of. I couldn’t use anything prescription strength because I was (and still am) breastfeeding. Up until a few weeks ago I was still having painful breakouts, to the point that my neck and back would be sore and sensitive to the touch.
I seriously thought I had tried everything until I tried Thaumaturgic Bio Mist by Theralight. My husband Eric and I joke that this stuff is like magic because literally after only a few days of spraying it on my skin, the acne on my neck and back just disappeared – and I wasn’t using any other product on my back, not even body wash. We even tested it out on Eric’s dry, red, itchy skin and it worked to relieve the redness and itch within minutes.
Below you can see where I was having a breakout on the back of my neck. After only a few days of using the Bio Mist it had completely cleared up.
I bet now you’re wondering what this miracle product is made of.
Are you ready to find out? It’s literally just salt and water that has been electrolyzed. That’s it! Can’t get more natural than that. The electrolyzed salt and water actually replicate the healing power our skin has naturally. The best part is (besides the fact that it works), is that Bio Mist is free of:
- Artificial Colors
Pretty awesome, I know. If you’re a label-reader like me, then these are all the things you look for in a good skincare product.
What skincare concerns are you facing? Sunburns, Eczema, or just basic cuts and scrapes? Bio Mist works for all of these things. We even found that it helped take the itch out of bug bites! The most amazing thing about this product is that it can be used for so many skin-related issues. No more “tried everything – nothing worked.” After 17 months of postpartum acne, I am so relieved to have found a product that actually works for my skin.
Did you struggle with postpartum acne as well? Any ideas to share on how to treat postpartum acne?

This sounds great! I love the simplicity of the ingredient list and your results sound incredible!
Thanks, Christina! Simple ingredients are definitely something I look for in skincare products.
I wish I had some of these right after I had my twins. My skin was crazy!
I wish I would have known about it sooner as well!
That is awesome that it is just those two ingredients. My skin has actually been better post pregnancy. I just hope it stays that way.
That’s amazing! I hope so, too!
I just recently had a baby in September so this post is perfect! 🙂
Thanks for sharing.
