Blemishes and rough skin on your chest, back and even your butt can be an annoyance year round. With summer here, you may be doubling down on your efforts to get clear, smooth skin. To effectively target these skincare woes, using the right body wash can help. Shop five of our favorite exfoliating body washes, ahead.

CeraVe Salicylic Acid Body Wash

Say goodbye to body blemishes with this cleanser that contains salicylic acid. Perfect for a post-workout shower, the CeraVe formula (which also includes restorative ceramides) exfoliates and softens skin without irritation.

Hero Cosmetics Brave Body Power Wash

Lather up post-workout with this exfoliating body wash that contains a unique blend of silver, malachite, and copper to help keep the skin clean and blemish-free.

Mario Badescu AHA Botanical Body Soap

For an everyday, acne-fighting body wash, look to this grapefruit- and alpha-hydroxy-acid-infused option. With a combo of invigorating fruit enzymes, plus ginseng and linden, this cleanser helps sloughs away pore-clogging dead skin cells to keep your skin feeling clean and refreshed every time you step out of the shower.

Versed Skin Back-Up Plan Acne-Control Body Mist

If you’re not able to get to a shower right away, don’t stress. This mist is a summer must-have because not only can you take it with you on the go, but it also prevents blemishes from the neck down using a powerful yet gentle combination of salicylic acid, tea tree oil and witch hazel.

Proactiv Deep Cleansing Body Wash

Containing maximum strength salicylic acid, this full body wash gets deep into pores and clears out acne-causing bacteria, oil, dirt and debris to prevent future breakouts. Gentle exfoliating beads help to wash away dead skin cells for fresh, clean skin that doesn’t feel tight or dry.
