Bacne can really bring you down. Though you may not see it every day, trying on those stunning backless gowns and vibrant cholis can be really discouraging, when the dreaded bacne makes an appearance. There can be many reasons why bacne might appear—stress, sweat, waxing, laser treatment, hormones, dirt and even certain oil massages, but there are ways to easily get rid of it.
Read on, as we tell you how...
A great way to get rid of bacne is to try an easy homemade body scrub. All you need is 1 part coconut oil to two parts sea salt or sugar for the perfect back scrub. Exfoliating your back will unclog pores and help you get rid of dead skin. Wash your back with warm water before using the scrub as it will open your pores and make it easier for dead skin to come off.
Treat bacne with tea tree oil
Tea tree oil has several properties that’ll help you get rid of germs and bacteria resting on your skin. Mix in a few drops of tea tree oil into water and use a cotton swab to apply it to the affected area. For better results, follow this process twice a day to get rid of back acne.
Aloe has great soothing properties to calm down any irritated skin. Cool the aloe vera gel in your fridge, apply it to your entire back, and let it dry for about 20 minutes before rinsing. This is great for comforting and rejuvenating your skin.
Let your skin breathe
In the warm weather, tight, constricting clothes don’t allow your skin to breathe, whereas, in the cold weather, excess layering does the same. This suffocation can cause bacne, so make sure you let your skin breath by wearing loose, comfortable clothing.
Oatmeal is a great soothing agent to help you treat acne on your back. Try mixing honey and cooked oatmeal together for a naturally soothing pack that’ll rid you of bacne. Image courtesy: Instagram
