Let's Talk About Bum Spots

Our skin is pretty fascinating. It's such a complex and hardworking system yet we hardly give it any credit. When our skin changes and does things we're not quite into, it's even harder to think of it in a positive light. One such change can be bum spots. Nope, it's not just you, and you're not the only one who has them (even though it can often feel like it).

While we're all happy to share our skin successes and serum recommendations, we rarely discuss topics like getting spots on our bums with our friends. Of course, this lack of conversation doesn't help in normalising the random things our skin does. So that's what we're about to do. Pull up a chair, as we're going to delve into all things bum spots.

There's nothing to be embarrassed about. Our skin is a barrier, and it's there to protect us, so if you've had (or currently have) these spots, it's just your skin sending a message that it's not happy at the moment. We decided to get to the bottom (no pun intended) of these spots and have a chat with Kate Bancroft, nurse independent prescriber and founder of Face the Future, to learn about why we get bum spots and what we can do about it.
