Body Make-up??

Ok here it is in a nut shell. I have suffered with acne since puberty (face, back, shoulders, and chest) you can imagine bathingsuits and the like were the enemy. It must be genetic b/c my father has very bad body acne all his life and so does my sister. When I got pregnant for the 1st time it was a miracle cure. I was clear as a bell and never worried about what I wore. BUT... with my last and final pregnancy (this was 4yrs ago) It came back worse than before. I even started seeing a few stray pimples creep down my sides and across my belly. This was after enjoying about 8yrs of super clear skin. I am resigned to the fact that I have to live with it but I do like wearing sleevless dresses/shirts in summer. I end up putting my foundation from my face on my shoulders and sometimes my chest and setting it w/powder but it seems no matter what it is either too dark or too light. Is there a product out there that is made for such a thing? what do all the other women do besides cover up? I mainly have it under control except for ocasional breakouts but as you can imagine after 22yrs of on again off again acne I have quite a few ugly scars. Any suggestions???
