You often do it all to get rid of the zits on your face but completely ignore the acne that’s scarring your back. If you already have acne prone skin, the chances of you getting bacne are rather high. Clogged pores, wrong choice of hair products and even the lack of hygiene can all result in a severe form of bacne. Wondering how you can recover from it? Follow this guide to get rid of back acne...

Clogged pores and skin ridden with grime and pollution is one of the biggest causes of bacne. This is why you need to opt for a scrub that will deeply cleanse your back. We suggest you get your hands on the St.Ives Fresh Face Apricot Scrub that helps remove extra oil from the skin—the deep rooted monster behind bacne. This scrub contains apricot that heals, soothes, protects and energises your skin while the walnut shells leave your skin moisturised since walnuts are packed with Vitamin B along with Vitamin E.

 

Avoid fitted outfits

Avoid fitted outfits

Did you ever think your love for bodycon dresses might actually be the reason behind your back acne? Fitted clothes don’t allow your skin to breathe and trap excess sweat in your skin aggravating your clogged pores and acne. This is why you need to stick to easy breezy clothes if you’ve been suffering from bacne for a while.

 

Don’t skip the lotion

Don’t skip the lotion

Yes, we know you feel your skin is so sensitive you’d rather not irritate it by adding further moisture by way of a lotion. But when you dehydrate your skin by skipping a lotion, your sebaceous glands start producing excess oil leading to further acne. This is why you need to rely on a mild lotion with the right acne fighting ingredients. We suggest you go for the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Body Lotion. This one has a non-sticky formula that contains pure aloe, stratys-3 multi-layer moisture that deeply moisturises the skin without making the skin feel greasy.

 

Opt for a sea salt bath

Opt for a sea salt bath

If you’ve been suffering from bacne, it is advisable that you take a sea salt bath once a week. Sea salt is known to reduce bacterial buildup as well as sucks out the excess oil and grime from your pores. Just add 2 cups of sea salt to your bathing water and wash your body with it.

 

Wipe with a soft cloth after a shower

Bacne can be rather irritable and itchy and you might involuntarily rub a towel over your back after a shower. While you need to ensure that your skin is dry, avoid using a cloth as rough as a towel. Use a cotton cloth or something soft that doesn’t irritate your skin further.
