Getting rid of bacne (acne that appears on the back) can be a hard task as it is located in an awkward place as its difficult to see and applying any sort of treatment on your own can also be difficult. The alternative is to get someone to apply any treatment on your bacne but this is not an option for some who are very sensitive an do not like to show anyone there acne. That is why I have created a list of treatments on how to get rid of acne on your back that can be done by yourself and are all very effective in clearing the condition.
5 Tips To Clear Acne From Your Back
1. Use a loofa sponge to exfoliate the skin. This will help to clear acne that appears on the back by removing dead skin cells and unclogging blocked pores. Do not exfoliate the skin excessively as this can irritate the acne.
2. Bathe in salt water, make sure that the water is cleanse first. After you have gotten out of the water lie down on your belly with the sun on your back for 8-minutes, repeat the processes every few days/weeks. You should see an improvement after the first time you use this method. Warning, make sure to use a non-comedogenic oil-free sun lotion after getting out of the water avoid being sun burnt and do not do this at peak times when the sun is at its strongest.
3.Use a cleanser that has been specifically created to clear acne off your back. To Apply just rub over your back as best you can for 30-60 seconds then jump in the shower/bath to wash off. This will ensure that the back stays clean and also removes oil that is a big cause of bacne.
4. Make sure to change the sheets on your bed as often as possible as the dirt and sweat that builds up on the sheeting can block the pores and cause further breakouts
5.(Optional) If you do not mind people seeing your bacne you could get someone to apply a treatment like benzoyl peroxide at night. This is an extremely effective treatment for getting rid of acne as it dries up oil and kills the bacteria that causes acne.
These are my 5 tips on how to get rid of acne on your back. If after using all of the above tips you still do not see an improvement in your bacne I would advise contacting your doctor to see a skin specialist if it is really effecting your social life.
