Follow this powerful four-step treatment to make your back acne disappear. Strike your favorite poses with clear & radiant skin!
First step: Prepare your skin
After washing your hair, make sure you rinse out your conditioner. Conditioners contain oils so it’s a simple yet critical step to prevent the pores on your back from clogging.
Second step: Exfoliate
Remove any dead cells and oil that may be blocking your pores by using a soft cloth to remove impurities in the shower. Be gentle, especially if you’re experiencing severe back acne.
Third step: Apply an acne medication
Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid are the magical ingredients behind most acne remedies. Apply an oil-free body wash with these medications over the affected area and wait for about two minutes to do its thing. Rinse off.
Neutrogena has an affordable line aimed at eliminating acne. For best results, try them for at least 2 weeks.
One of the most popular body soaps to treat acne is Clinique’s Acne Solutions Body Soap. It effectively removes dirt and excess oil and contains salicylic acid to fight breakouts.
Fourth step: Apply topical treatment and moisturizer
Pat dry the affected area with a clean towel and apply a topical treatment and moisturizer. Benzoyl peroxide tends to bleach fabric so wear something white or use a towel that you don’t mind bleaching.
Three must-dos to prevent back acne
1. Shower daily, especially after working out
2. Wear a clean & comfortable bra that fits and doesn’t squeeze your back acne
3. Wear breathable fabrics like cotton when you’re exercising
